beertholomeus (1814) - California, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Pours a straw yellow with foamy white head. Grass and malt aromas with a slight hop note. Grass, malt and hop flavors. Decent carbonation and a slightly bitter finish.

From Jun 2008 Purchased locally. It pours a straw gold with a large head of foam(near room temp) and some lacing. The head retention is better than I thought it would be. The smell has notes of hop bitterness and corn husks. Not particularly inviting but... The taste of the corn husk flavour is pretty strong and the hops inject some bitterness but don't add any real flavour. Light bodied and pretty well carbonated, it's not a bad tasting brew at all; it goes down easy enough and there's not much of an aftertaste so it's okay for occasional consumption.

not a big fan of steinie, i often find this beer has a bit too sugary aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 One of the worst beers available in NZ. Terrible Taste, terrible fizz just a generally bad beer. Recommend avoiding.

From old tasting notes. Tawny gold color with a bubbly white head. Assertive sweet perfumy malt aroma. Tangy sweet grapefruit malt flavor upfront. Lots of grassy hops in middle. Interesting citrus finish and aftertaste.

Zilb (406) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - JUN 29, 2017
En pression au café d’oz avec collègues. Blonde carbo faible, mousse moyenne à tenue exceptionnelle. Arôme ras. Une amertume très herbacée qui reste longtemps en bouche : très agréable. Le houblon rend la bière intéressante sinon ras : du classique.

Very crisp taste, make sure you have out of super cold glass to experience the full bodied flavour of New Zealands finest lager.

An absolute stunner, as a NZ man, this is right up with one of the top NZ beers. A great pour in a cup with a firm head, has a crisp clean finish with an every so slightly bitter tang at the end. A real mens drink!

F: snow-white, huge, good retention. C: pale gold, clear. A: malt, light grassy, hint of caramel, bready, grainy, corn.

mabuzzer (956) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear, pale, golden, frothy white head. Little aroma, very crisp taste with slightly bitter finish. Ok

LazyPyro (1794) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2016
330ml bottle. Pale clear straw colour with a small white head, fairly good retention. Aroma: slightly sweet malt, grassy hops. Taste: sweetish malts, slightly fruity citrus hops, a light hoppy bitterness. Overall quite pleasant for a lager, clean, crisp, and wasn’t skunked. Medium carbonation, light body, thin texture, dryish finish. Yeah, not a bad lager at all.
