2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted 18/04/2007. 330ml bottle from Roti Chenai.
Slightly stale malts and sugary nose. A touch of fruity NZ hops, probably one of the Hallertau derivatives I guess. Deepish hued bright gold, with a white head that tries to persist. Fairly weighty in the mouth, sweet malts - lager malt, a little cara and slightly sugary. Almost no discernible hop character in the mouth. and an off-dry finish. I’d imagine a very fresh example could be an ok tasting macro lager. More character than most.
Bland but drinkable beer from the DB stable. Little carbonation, but at least this beer is actually true to style (looking at you Tui Pale Ale and Monty Radler!) waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 16, 2015

Tasted 7/2/2014. BB 20-07-14. Poured a clear golden amber with virtually no collar. Carbonation very low with virtually no bubbles, and the few that were present were large. Aroma of larger malts, a bit grainy and no bitterness. Tasteless. Light body, watery. Bland. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 24, 2013
The head is unrobust. It smells very watery, bit barley. The taste is a bit malty and very watery. yungbeerguy (31) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 7, 2013
The beer is bittersweet and has the aroma of hops and is a decent tasting quality beer

Aroma corn, vegetable oil and malt. Watery, crap that leaves a lingering taste of vegetable oil. It’s beers like this that caused me to give up on beer for about 10 years. Baz7778 (58) - SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2012
Drinks easy and leaves you thinking about other more interesting brews better than DB export which is not really hard

Typical lager colour with a white head that duly sunk into the glass. Aromas of lighter malts and a dash of hops, but not a great deal. However, broadly speaking this doesn’t smell like a beer I wouldn’t want to drink. Tastes cool but largely tasteless. A little sweet at first, but after that it becomes water charged with farts. It had the makings of something not too bad, but lost it mid way through. mkel07 (6123) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2010
330ml bottle. Clear, bright golden amber with a soft white head of loosely packed foam. Malt and corn aroma with a matching flavour that feels okay in the mouth. rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2010
Canette, bière blonde commerciale «DRY» des bières qui n’ont pas d’arrière goût car elles n’ont pas de goût, point. C’est vraiment un produit inintéressant.
