not surprisingly this pale lager comes in a green bottle, but i do want to mention the classy looking "steinlager" script around the neck. not a bad looking label either.
fresh hop aroma which compliments the flavor very well.
good clean mouthfeel, not too heavy or light.
overall a well rounded beer that i wouldnt mind having a few more of.
grabbed another one today after a while. not sure what its like on the mainland, or NZ, but this beer doesnt get much press down here. and really, it should. though i doubt it would make too much difference. its just too different for some people.
nice white head on a clear light golden beer. head is very stable.
fresh, herbal, grassy hay aroma. sort of typical, but fairly refreshing, and deffinitely nothing wrong with it.
crisp taste with a bit of bitterness up front. better than your average macro lager, but nothing to get too excited about.
Serving type: bottle

Poured from 330ml bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a sudsy thick white head which gradually recedes leaving decent lacing. Color is a clear light gold with abundant streaming carbonation.
Aroma: initially a bit of skunk (green bottle), once this dissipated remaining aroma is a combination of pungent grassy hops and sweet bread dough.
Mouthfeel: light and frothy with a drying finish.
Flavor: nice combination of lightly toasted barley, a hint of caramel and toffee, strong grass hop presence as well as some bitter hops in the finish.
Overall: excellent and well done pale lager. Would like to try it from a can or on tap to see if the initial skunk is not present.
