beer4eternity (225) - Tauranga, - JAN 17, 2011
330ml bottle. White small bubbly fully quickly diminishing head on light golden body. Light honey hay grass corn grain stale malt cardboard box, usual NZ macro lager aromas. Tastes light to moderate bitter, moderate sweet. Light medium body, creamy watery texture, average carbonation, long dry finish which I found a bit harsh and unpleasant. What am I missing that the bestowers of accolades for this beer found?

LazyPyro (662) - Cheltenham, 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 wasnt skunked. Medium carbonation, light body, thin texture, dryish finish. Yeah, not a bad lager at all.

Originally rated on 7/18/08. Curse of the green bottle strikes again! As soon as i opened this one i was hit by the skunkiest smell ever from a beer. Upon pouring a standard looking lager, medium carbonation with a small head. Flavor was rather bland, i wont buy one of these again.

How can anyone who takes beer seriously put it in a green bottle when they KNOW it will skunk as soon as it sees the light of day. Especially a lightly flavoured beer like a lager. Should be a criminal offence. Anyway - I remembered this much more fondly than I do now after tasting again. Simple lager with clean crisp finish when it hasnt gone off in the bottle. Too hit and miss and too simple to waste time on having again. Lawn mowing beer at best.

rosenbergh (10895) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2015
750 ml bottle. Maybe bottled on 27/05/15. From a store at the hotel lobby. Honolulu, HI.
Clear golden color with a small white head. Earthy and somewhat dark malty aroma. The flavor is malt, earth, mild grassy dryness and rice. This is like a tropical country lager. Worse than the Miller Lite I just had.

eduardovl (1372) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 4, 2015
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a pale yellow color forming a big and light creamy white head with good retention and tons of lingering and soapy lacings left in the glass. Strong notes of sweet pale malts in the nose. Grassy and citrus hops. Cardboard. Slightly sweet upfront mouth. Again, very malty, biscuity and crispy. Medium hops bitterness. Grassy and citrus hops profile. Hints of cardboard and resin. Light body and medium carbonation. Grassy aftertaste. Average drinkability.

blipp (8399) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Can on my Air NZ flight. Pours fizzy gold with a white head. Clean and light pale malts, very little sweetness, low bitterness, relatively clean finish for a mass produced lager. Decent.

Aquilo (630) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Ultra clear yellow with a middling white head. Aroma is rotting leaves and unclean armpits, with a hint of nutmeg. Flavor is rather bland, there is a hint of something fruity in the finish, but I cant quite put my finger on it. Overall, this is a boring beer trying to be a Heineken replacement. Its drinkable, but Ill avoid it in the future.

Beerringer (4) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2015 does not count
Give me a reason not to love this beer, its the best beer in the world, my fridge would be fully stocked if it wasnt so expensive. The smell right off the top is so pleasant.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2015 Im rating this for old times sake, as I drank a fair few kegs worth of this as a young and naive man. Slightly more interesting that the usual generic international lagers, but only slightly. Definitely sessionable, if you are still young and naive and can afford to waste half of the following day, then this is as good as any. A touch of grass and a taste of bread and hay
