Great nuttiness and smooth texture. Strong body so couldn’t have too many. Awesome colour too. peteraway01 (11) - - DEC 27, 2012
A little on the "wheat" side of taste for me at the beginning, but it really grew on me.

Good one, like it so far, some malty, but nice even imported. Will drink it more often grongbot99 (2) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2002 does not count
I agree with the other guy about not being as good as other monteiths, but fuck me its nice :) AshtonMcCobb (6601) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 28, 2011
Golden (as it says) with gentle bubbles and a thin lacy head. The nose has beautiful rich mango aromas. The taste i of more mango and guadeloupe melon with a background maltiness. The palate has decent texture and structure with a clean finish. Overall, this is a lovely beer, though I’d say it was more of a pale ale than a lager.

Aroma de malte caramelizado tostado. O sabor condiz com com o aroma, sendo também de caramelo tostado. Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2014
Light aroma with hints of honey. Clear golden colour with reasonable head. Very nice honey malt flavour with a crisp finish. Light body with medium carbonation. BoozeHag462 (11) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 29, 2004
Better alternative to Export Gold, smells and tates so much nicer.
Easy to drink and everyone’s happy. can8ianben (1545) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2005
My sister brought this one back from New Zealand. Nice sweet aroma with faint hops. Good citrus character. Fairly normal pour, with quickly disappearing head and golden colour. The flavour is nice, not exceptional but a good citrus hop flavour followed by some good bitterness. This is a great dinner beer, or for watching rugby. I like it.

330ml Bottle BB 10 Oct 2012: poured @ home into a Westvletren chalice on 07 Dec 2012, some two months after its best before date.
Looks OK: good deep golden body with a white covering that tries to hang around, but as in most beers of this style it fades to a wispy swirl and collar as you attack the beer.
Grainy nose more than hop or straight malt: taste is leaning towards malts, biscuity and semi-sweet. Crisp body and nice hop finish: easy drinking lager and with enough flavour to interest me. certainly one of the highest scoring lagers I’ve had since joining this site.
