2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The head is ok, the body gold-brown. It smells bitter-flower, malty. The taste is malty, bit bitter, flowery, ok, but a bit boring.

Not as good as their Brewski. This is much more malty and bready. It has not nearly as much hops and is sweeter.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted 20/12/2005. 330ml bottle from New World Metro, at JT’s.
Copper, diminishing off-white head, medium carbonation, slightly appley aroma, some toasty malt noted too, little in the way of hops, short finish.
The only thing "wrong" with this beer is that it’s a bit too strong, at 4.8%, to be the standard quaffer that I assume it is intended as. It’s the standard, mild, kiwi-brown lager, which is definitely not my thing (but it is done better than most).

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Cloudy copper colour with barely any foam, only a skinny edging of white bubbles around the edge of the glass. Looks a bit flat. Sweet malt aroma that is enticing and inviting and leads into a mildly bitter flavour that is a bit unusual at first but after a few sips it grows on you.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
strangely thick, yeasty and creamy for a lager. tastes of grainy creamed honey, cold porridge, nut nougat, stewed apricot. bizarre but i didnt mind it that much.

Bottle, moderately hopped, but I found the malt a little too grainy.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 Another poor beer from Wanaka, two tried and both had pretty glaring fermentation problems. This is supposed to be a Vienna-style lager but there’s zero Vienna malt presence. Instead you have strong DMS, sweet and sour grains, syrupy malt extract texture combined with rough seltzer water carbonation. Seems like unfinished kit beer. From draft.
