Bottle - pours gold with a small white head. Aroma is grainy malt, bit milleresque. Taste is sweet grainy malt. Avg lager. Bahbahwah (1) - - NOV 13, 2015 does not count
Gee wiz! Nothing like the sweet taste of a juicy lager such as this after a hard days yakka digging post holes out in papamoa.. Strewth! Carters premium lager. best beer by a lazy inch, for the price. windarc (3) - - OCT 15, 2013 does not count
Pharkme it’s only 30 bucks a carton . Poxy 330ml bottles and 4% alcohol but is very drinkable . Nice flavour indeed unlike some of the discount Dutch beers which have a quite noticeable foul taste .
Comes from New Zealand . nice clean water there ibet . Muggus69 (2601) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2012
330mL bottle...a twist top infact
Deep golden body, head doesn’t hang around.
Suprising aroma, as in there is something! Cereal malts, good hit of butterscotchy diacetyl, some floral perfumey hops(!).
Medium-to-light body, dries out quite quickly - guessing there’s a fair bit of adjunct. Carbonation is fizzy.
Not much on the body, a bit of diacetyl keeps interest. Finishes with mild bitterness, actually somewhat sweet, a suggestion of the that floral hop.
Not what I was expecting, has a bit more to offer than other beers at this price point. Having said that, the edge of diacetyl stands out like dogs bollocks, big fault by the brewers there! mkel07 (6217) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2011
330ml bottle. Pale in the pour but darkens to an amber gold in the glass. Neat snow white head that disperses. Strong grain aroma that reminds me of the massed produced lagers I drank before discovering craft beer. Thin and watery in the mouth with little taste and not much left on the palate.

Bland and watery. Where does this ’premium’ tag come from. Corny and cheap to the taste. A bad kiwi beer.
