This is one of the best beers - have this in winter and you dont even need it under room temperature, nice ale taste

ljthiessen (1266) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle, from a friend just back from NZ. Clear copper pour with a large off-white head. Malty and fairly light, caramel, a little nutty, a little bready. Still light and simple, but really not bad.

john44 (3000) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle. Dark Brown/Dark Amber in colour. Malty; caramel, burnt sugar, roast malts. Hoppy; hint of grassy hops. Sweetish roast malty throughout. Fairly bland. Easy drinking. (2009-07)

Dark amber. Maybe a little malt on the nose. Light body, very subtle malt, no bitterness. Very middle of the road

LazyPyro (921) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Amber coloured with a small off-white head. Aroma: malts, caramel. Taste: mild malty notes, caramel, light fruity hops. Oily texture. A pretty mild tasting beer, inoffensive though.

TedE (1213) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2016
Pint on tap at The Whaler, Kaikoura. Ruby red beer with thin white head. Slight aroma of malt and hops. Flat mouthfeel, taste is mostly malt. Finish has a little touch of tinny hops then the sweet sweet malt kicks back in. Standard NZ pub ale, dull but drinkable.

Skarecrow (593) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 5, 2016
330ml bottle Malty aroma Poured amber brown with not much head. Mild bitterness with not a lot of body but a clean finish. An ok session beer I suppose but nothing crafty at all.

Probably my favourite Monteiths beer. Which is like describing my favourite type of dental surgery. This beer was designed by a committee of teetotallers

DylansDad (634) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 31, 2016
Not too shabby at all. Clean and crisp, aromas of toast, hay and slight hints of caramel. Taste includes the same plus a drop of apple. Good meat and potatoes ale.

Deep orange brown pour. Nutty aroma, taste follows with lightly floral notes. Thin. Not good.

Pdubyah (702) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 18, 2015
ok, this is an everyman beer, its nothing special or different or outstanding, it is peaky and edgy around points that are sharp, better, sweet and tangy. There is no craft in this, but the do this week in week out, for a day beer its not shabby, but its not a beer you should boast about
