Orange in colour with small white head, mild hop aroma. has big malt flavour that leaves no bitter mouthfeel. Pretty safe beer nothing outstanding. omega (899) - NEW ZEALAND - NOV 21, 2011
A lightly malted lager which is nice and clean. Good length (for a lager). yalnikim (802) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 13, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 Retasted 15/03/2007. Slight haze. Pungent caramel. Quite astringent - hot in the throat on lingering in the mouth. Grain or sparge problems? Everything else similar to below. Dropped from 3 to 2.7. Tasted 13/08/2006. 500ml bottle from Island Bay New World.
Burnished gold, bright, with a lightly lacing white head. Caramel and lemonade on the nose, with a musty background note of mealy red apples. Toasty malt and grassy bitterness dominate the mouth, with a lingering herbal hop note. Carbonic dryness doesn’t allow everything through. A little lacking in malt sweetness and slightly over-hopped but a fairly pleasant easy drinking beer. bozoNZ (781) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 5, 2007
500ml bottle from Halswell New World bb 9/11/07. Dryish malty dusty nose. Nice amber, faintly cloudy. Fair head. Well carbonated which probably takes away some of the initial flavour. Mid hop dryness thru to the finish. Reasonable but a little soda-ish donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 26, 2008

Colour: cloudy golden brown with a tan head
Aroma: Toffee caramel notes and honey. Malty and smooth, very drinkable, slight hoppy aroma. Smooth taste, full flavour. Sits at top of mouth. Plimmer (252) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2008
Dark amber color with and slightly hazy body. Normal size white head. Hops in taste and in the aftertaste. heyden (138) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 25, 2014
Marmite yeasty aroma. Pours cloudy amber with thin lacing. Toffee caramel and marmite malty taste. Very clean and crisp, minimal hops. Very drinkable! OJB (40) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2007
The colour was medium-strong red-orange amber, and there was a fairly strong creamy head. There was strong carbonation. The aroma showed strong toasted malt and light hop bitterness. The taste showed strong toasty malt, light spice, and a bitter hop finish. This was quite a strong, fairly complex style. beerequalizer (22) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 1, 2010
UPDATED: APR 2, 2010 Aaahh, the good old Vienna Lager. I wonder how many people have really tried a true Vienna Lager? This is a nice beer, well made, and would go quite nicely with a bratwurst.
