surprised to find this in a bottle store in Parakai no sign of a use by date so not sure how long its been sitting there the beer itself isn’t so bad poured yellow gold & briefly frothy with lasting laciness & a mild aroma of malt & maybe straw the taste is a bit weak bitter lightly sweet hoppy malty ok neverleaveopen (254) - GERMANY - FEB 6, 2014
the story with "stein" on the lable makes no sense. at least not in german. the beer is alright. malt aroma. well-balanced taste. Brodies_Best (324) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 21, 2013
Bottled. Aroma of biscuity caramel. Full bodied berry hops and a bitter aftertaste. Decent beer beer-yum (1952) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 20, 2013
Not a bad beer for the price. While I’d spend the extra for a better brew I’d not be adverse to having another one of these if offered. Pdubyah (836) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 28, 2013
Not a resounding success. As a commercial lager this isn’t any head and shoulders above anything else. As a commercial lager it would compete for space in my supermarket shopping basket for space.
There is a hop base, there is also a sour note that may remind you of other good lagers, but from a brewer trying to touch many market points with a craft brew for every occasion I think they should stick to a core set and be spectacular.
But then it’s a commercial thing, and sell more to more people is the word.

Just like a generic green bottle euro lager slosh except the flavour is a little better and bolder and actually makes it past the front of your tongue, and it comes in a brown bottle. It seems that making a "good" German lager is a bit like polishing a turd. Why bother? Oh, that’s right, millions of people buy it. Ungstrup (38944) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2013
Bottled. A golden beer with a huge white head - not right for a Munich Lager. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and grain, leading to a dry cardboardy finish. Nothing like a Munich Lager. Rangi (671) - NEW ZEALAND - DEC 30, 2012
Nice enough beer im sure for the style. Nice combonation of malts and hops. Nothing to out standing, another easily drinkable beverage. beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 28, 2012
Bright orange in colour with small white head that dissipated quickly. Sweet malt base with mild bitterness. Very much like DB Draught. Mild hop aoma. ciaranc (1306) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 12, 2012
Pours a clear gold, with a big, lasting, white pillowy head. Not a huge amount going on in the aroma stakes, yeast and some lemon. Mouthfeel is medium-light body, clean and smoothly carbonated, with a nice, crisp subtle bitterness balanced by gentle sweet malt and a short, refreshing finish. A decent lager.
