A pleasant and refreshing lager that's easy to drink. It has a crisp taste that would also be enhanced with a slice of lemon or lime.

Here in NZ, this is 1 of the cheapest imported beers available, not much over $1 a bottle! A fairly light lager, with a slightly bitter aftertaste, it’s very good value for money. waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 13, 2015
cheap as local beer you get what you pay for 440ml can poured pale gold smells grainy bit malty taste is similar Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2014
Malty aroma. Darker golden colour with very poor head. Malty honey flavor with honey aftertaste. Medium body with low carbonation. Earplay (51) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 8, 2014
Actually a pleasant sweet malt aroma of this ’budget’ beer. Light clean taste, relatively inoffensive bitterness, little hop presence. Light mouth-feel and poor head retention. An easy drinker. joe19612 (2923) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow colour with a thin white head, aroma is light malt with some grass, taste is sweet with citrus fruit with a dry finish.

OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003
Actually thought it was European at first. I was played a fool. Very sweet and easy. Smells a bit strange and leaves quite bad after taste in your mouth after way to many. Cheap, but better than the alternatives at the price. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2014
The head is medium, body blond. It smells watery, bit malty, stale. The taste is watery, bit malty, stale, metal. Crap omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - DEC 18, 2013
For a cheapy a more aromatic nose, but quite soapy on the palate. Hints of flavour, but more being able to chop quantity than delivering quality. Brodies_Best (269) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 7, 2013
330 ml bottle pours yellow not much aroma bitter taste. Aftertaste is bitter and long lasting. Easy drinking summer beer yungbeerguy (31) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 7, 2013
