This is a domestically (NZ) produced version (by Independent Breweries) which is 4.5% alc/vol and was about medium cost for a domestic dozen. With some trepidation after reading the earlier reviews I am to going to get the can and pour...
It pours a beautiful golden, um. well... liquid effluent colour, with a small head which rapidly dissapates. Tastes fizzy and sweet at first impression. On repeated sips I discover a cloying mouth feel, there is a hint of bitterness 2/3 of the way through the swallow but the aftertaste is short and sweet. As a drink its a relatively innocuous alcoholic beverage which is easy to drink but as a beer it has little to no reedeeming characteristics.

do i feel a headache coming on....

I am going to be harsh on this one, as I worked in selling that beer for years. Taste? tastes like cheap beer, and I am very very very polite here. No aroma, the head doesnt stay at all. Leave it for a time and you will see how the sugar added in that beer will get out. This should not be even called beer, but at its cheap price some "drinkers" will buy it. Cheap price, cheap beer cheap taste. A Horror of beer!

500ml can

Pours with a typical cheap ass macro swill look, straw yellow and very little head, no retention to speak of

Smell, husk, rice and very little else. Skunky aroma

Taste is malty and dry. Overly carbonated and one dimensional flavours

Terrible brew

A disappointing product that leaves you wanting, a medium gold in colour with a very slight crown which quickly becomes a faint memory...speaking of faint, a light musty aroma greets the nose..the body is medium. The taste is well balanced and leaves you dry...
