4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A tasty, refreshing, easy to drink lager that has hints of banana and leaves a pleasant, mildly dry palate. The hops are not overpowering and enhances the flavour.

Draft on the launch day at the Malthouse. Poured a light golden yellow, clear with a crisp white head. Light hop aroma. Subtle malt start with a light bitter finish. Very good example of a Helles and a little too drinkable.

Good looking beer with a gorgeous golden colour and a full, fizzy white head. Aromas of lemon grass and citrus, but soft and easy to drink upon tasting. Very much a favourite of the memsahib (and if it keeps her happy...). Well within style and recommended to my customers in spades. Ideal summery drinking.

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)

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a huge and white head. Aroma is crisp grassy to mild citrusy. Smooth fruity hoppy flavoured, light grassy bite and crisp. Bitter and nice fruity finish.

With thanks to my kiwi buddy Mark for bringing this home from NZ to Ireland for me. Appearance: quite a light yellow, good visible carbonation with a small snow white head. Aroma: Deep malty grassiness, a little fruity, yeasty too. Flavour: great fresh grass flavour, nicely balanced with the malt, some citrus and fruit in the finish. Simple, refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden colour, head quickly diminishing. Pretty standard lager, very drinkable.. easy to knock back a few of these. Overall pretty enjoyable, but lacks taste.

Soft malty aroma, hardly any head, great golden colour, quite sweat palette and well balanced hoppy malty flavour slightly fruity. Yeasty.

Beautiful clear, light golden. Sweet aroma, tropical fruits, almost pineapple. Sweet malt mouthfeel with a biscuit arrowroot cum cereal note showing through. light crisp hop notes and a little drying cloyness in the finish. Very nice.
