My expectations aren’t enormous if I’m honest. This beer sells toward the lower end of the value market. It is not a handsome looking beer either. It looks the colour of a standard New Zealand Draught but without the addition of head retaining chemicals. There is no visible carbonation when a hallmark of the style is the sparkle. There is some aroma of sweetish malt, but very very little. The flavour is of sweet caramel with no bitterness, but some carbonation. This beer is about as good as one not riddled with faults can get... which isn’t very good.
