2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
Standard pale lager, light skunk, grassy, nothing else. Same and boring. As it is a lager, it is nice and drinkable.
330ml bottle. Pours pale. Apricot, grass, orange, little sweet, little acidity. Clean, nice balance. Not awful. Bill Becker (2055) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 22, 2017
From Jun 2008
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. pazza18 (11) - - SEP 23, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 One of the worst beers available in NZ. Terrible
Taste, terrible fizz just a generally bad beer. Recommend avoiding. gripweed57 (3049) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2017
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.

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. thebeerpundit (3) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 1, 2017 does not count
Very crisp taste, make sure you have out of super cold glass to experience the full bodied flavour of New Zealands finest lager. boza8 (4) - Rangiora, NEW ZEALAND - APR 13, 2017 does not count
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! Rubin77 (2876) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 1, 2017
