Draft, Christchurch, Wellington, Rotorua, Auckland (RWC Sept 2011) Average easy drinking pale ale that I was extremely glad to be able to access given the Steinlager alternatives.

Light amber pour, thin white head and good lacing. That’s where the fun stops - malt aroma and nothing much else; taste is watery, metallic, lacking flavour. No bitterness at all - it’s just really poor. You could drink a lot of it pretty easily, but it just tastes like nothing.

My local brewery. Pretty light and sweet. Zero hop flavour and virtually no malt profile to speak of. A session beer that has major popularity in NZ however. I’m not a huge fan. But NZ is hooked on boring beers.

To call this an IPA is truly laughable. There is no taste, no aroma, no body, it’s truly one of the most awful beers I’ve ever had. Even the tui on the label is looking away.

Bleh. Not worth it. Not enjoyable in one single way. Where are the hops, the flavours. Stop supporting bad beer...

Keg - Clear amber with a fading, frothy white to off-white head. Mid-fruits, some grain and sweet caramel malt. Light to medium body, soft to medium carbonation with a soft intensity and short length finish of grassy hops/toasty malts and grain.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark amber colour, Malty nose. The beer starts watery, a bit malty-sweet. The mainpart is also very watery, malty-sweet, easy to drink. The aftertaste is flat, watery, slightly malty-sweet and kind of boring...

Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours a copper color with very little head. The smell is caramel malt, cherry. The taste is as it smells, quite sweet with really no hop flavor at all. The body is light yet oily with less than average carbonation. Certainly a stinker for the style.

Bottle - pours amber with a big white head. Aroma is a bit cardboard with some sweet malt. Not a great deal of flavour, some dryness in the finish. Mouthfeel is very thin.
