Hard to tell this was a lager. It looked like an ale but tasted fresher. It was always going to be difficult to live up to expectations when you are called The Chosen One.

I hate lager, but this is better than many. If you’re stuck somewhere with a dire selection, this is not too offensive. Not too sweet and even had the merest hint of flavour to it. waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 30, 2014
Quite mild overall this is citrus sweet malty lightly bitter finishing quite dry sessionable but not overly exciting TuiSamesi (16) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 1, 2014
Hard to determine what sort of biscuits the brewers think it tastes like - certainly not ginger nuts! Has a very clear golden colour and a light head. Sten (752) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2014
Golden coloured beer with a fast diminishing white head. Grain and straw in the nose. Flavour is the same. (Bottle 33cl) 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Mild nose of toasted grain, dough, french bread and honey with faint touches of calcium and sulfur and toasted corn kernels. Medium body, lightly sweet, low bitterness, syrupy / chewy texture in the finish. The malt is corn-like and has a distinct twang across the middle before breaking into a crisp, lip-smacking finish. It lacks the minerality of the Czech-style Pilsner and it’s malt-focused, as it should be, but the extraction isn’t as clean, giving it a twangy, almost plastic-like flavor. Clear rich gold with a fine-bubbled white head, from bottle.

Bottled. A dark golden beer with thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and malt, leading to a bitter finish. Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 2, 2012
We asked the 999 New Zealanders of our tasting committee what they wanted in a lager and their answer was "One like everything else."
And that’s all it is. beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 27, 2012
Light orange colour with no head. Noaroma and low levels of malt and hop.Tingly mouthfeel but is bland and uneventful. I wouldn’t have chosen it I wonder what the options were? ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 8, 2012
Pour is gold, ultra-clear, fizzy body with virtually no head. Nothing much in the aroma, faint malt, yeast, honey and some soap. Taste is better, clean, fresh lager with a short finish. Very light, bordering on watery bodied. Not overly fizzy.
