3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sunny gold and bright as bright. Well fuelled, persistent fluffy white head drabs a cloud of foam down the glass. Aroma a blend of peppery, herbal hops, lemon zest and toasted grains. Soft, foamy mouthfeel and very light bodied. Fresh chilled it was dry, dusty and dominated by a New Zealand hop back end that is fruity, citric and herbaceous – low bitterness, also peppery especially after the swallow. Malt sweetens as it warms. Very easy drinking, balanced and quaffable. Don’t quite get that they grasped a Deutsches Helles but a tasty lager none the less! (33cL, BB 29/09/12, Freo Doctor)

This "classic Munich style lager" is basically more like your average Partyburner or any other cheap German mass produced swill. Throw in a dash of dishwashing detergent and that’s the flavour right there (maybe that’s what they mean with the tagline "crisp, CLEAN & refreshing). Head fizzes like a low effort homebrew.
Easily the worst from a overrated brewery.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a brilliant dark yellow-gold color with a shy, white head. Not too much going on in the aroma. Faint hops and some pils malt. Flavor is again mild with pils malt. There is a slight plastic-y after taste.

"nothing stands out, or is overly offensive about this lager. Pale yellow in color, smells of grain, corn, and light hops and tastes the same. Pretty light all around. I’ve had better Hellesseseesese but it wasn’t "bad"."

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is straw, lemon grass, light graininess and slight sulphur. Taste is a light sweet maltiness paired with a fairly well balanced bitterness. There is slight tartiness on finish but it doesn’t last long. Fairly basic character overall. Body is straw/gold with a bubbly pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

A serviceable brew that stands up to most of the competition. Competitive local price makes it a no-brainer safe bet in New Zealand.
