An easily drinkable enjoyable beverage. Great clear clean poor followed by a nice clean crisp beer. Very slight fruitiness to the beer.
On tap at Queenstown airport. Pours orange brown without much head. Plums, raisins, dried figs. Lots of yeasty esters but not much of anything else. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2017
(330ml bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of grain, mustiness, orange, and bread. Flavor of toasted grain, minerals, grass, and grapefruit peel. Gylo (310) - Lublin, POLAND - JAN 11, 2016
W zasadzie niczym nie wyróżniające się piwo, bez charakterystycznego posmaku czy zapachu. Na pewno lepsze od zwykłego lagera ale nic poza tym. GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 26, 2014
Quite disappointing. I was hoping to get a beer like Anchor Steam. But what I got smelled of green apples and pilsner malt. No hop character at all. Flavor isn’t much better with a generic malt profile and a touch of plasticy phenol. Appearance is golden with a large, white, lasting head. joe19612 (3074) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark gold colour with mid size white head, malty and hoppy aroma, taste is light with malt and fruit with a dry finish.
3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2014
An unfiltered, toasty, slightly fruity steam beer with contrasting crispness and softness. Orange marmalade, Munich malt toast and bread crusts, bit of nectarine and honey. Slightly grainy with medium-high carbonation (natural!), soft approach with creamy, fine carbonation, turning to a crisp smacking of bready / crusty malt and orange pith across the mid-palate into the finish. Yeast adds to the creaminess, though it’s still a little too "doughy" at times. Lightly sweet, a little tart with moderate bitterness, malt and hops equally expressive, and a nice balance of sweet, bitter, acidity and carbonation makes it appealing. The malt is succulent, hops just juicy enough, mouth feel is savory with only a faint husky edge to it, still enjoyable. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 12, 2013
The head is ok, the body is brown. It smells malty, fruity. The taste is fruity, malty, aromatic, hoppy, darkmalty, quite bitter, nice! Brodies_Best (324) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 28, 2013
330ml bottle from New World Freemans Bay. Pours golden cloudy with an off white head. Loads of carbonation. Aroma of raw malts with slight hints of hops and caramel. Bitterness is smooth and creamy. Very drinkable beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 16, 2013
Bronze colour with thick white head. Mlty biscuit aroma. Green hop bitterness. Pleasant but nothing outstanding.
