33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small and chalk white head. Aroma is light citrusy and grassy, rather crisp and inviting. Citrusy, light cornish and crisp grassy bitter flavoured. Medium dry and vague citrusy flavoured finish. Good pale lager.

Ungstrup (36486) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2003
This beer has a nice hoppy and sweet aroma. And it has a beutiful godlen color and a fine head, though it disappears a little too fast. The taste is a nice crisp sweet one, turning slightly bitter, and ending with a prickling on the tongue. A nice pilsener.

oh6gdx (26415) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden colour, small foamish white head. Malty and hoppy nose. Malty flavour which turns into biting hops in finish. Clean lager, but nothing very special.

(Bottle 33 cl) Oh sweet memories, this was a clear favourite of mine many years ago in New Zealand. In particular I loved the fantastic aroma hops. Just smelling this beer was half the pleasure. But either my memory is failing me or my dearly beloved Steinie has really declined in recent years.
Pilsener golden with a decent, creamy head leaving a pretty lacework. Decent malty body and a hoppy finish. Just another ordinary lager. Sadness... 030805

Bottled. Finally I got around to taste the real NZ brewed stuff. Theres some grassy hops up fron and it has a decent, rounded buttery malt profile. The bitterness is low, but for a mass market beer its pretty solid.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Raratonga. Fairly full on lager. Rich malt and slightly bitter. Full bodied but overall nothing special.

Travlr (23615) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Lounge beer, at the Air New Zealand business class lounge at LAX. Bottle. Crystal clear golden yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of peppery cardboard. Taste is bitter and papery. An inauspicious start to my NZ trip. At least it was free.

Light blond color. Light straw aroma. Very simple, with a light hay and honey taste. Too simple.

Land #36 Beim ffnen sprudelt das Bier erst einmal heraus, drfte whren der Reise geschttelt worden sein. Im Glas bildet sich eine ordentliche Blume, der Geruch erinnert an viele andere sdliche Lager. Das Aroma eben so, im groen und ganzen ist es recht dnn, jedoch besser als andere exotische Lager. Ein bitteres Aroma gesellt sich schnell zur anfnglichen Herbe, ist aber genau so schnell wieder verschwunden. Ab dem Mittelteil wird dann wie schon beschrieben recht dnn, einzig eine leichte Herbe bleibt vorhanden, im Nachgeschmack eine minimale Hopfigkeit. Schmeckt im warmen Neuseeland bestimmt besser, hierzulande wrde ich es als mittelmig einstufen. Test vom 9.3.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,8,10,8,12,8 - 8,80
