A 330ml bottle with a BB of March 2013. Picked up cheap from a local off-licence earlier today. Described on the label as 'triple-hopped'. The bottle neck has an internal vortex design that is presumably there to agitate the beer as you pour. The presence of such a gimmick doesn't bode well...

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear golden-amber colour with good carbonation. Forms a diminuitive head of white foam that lasts for barely a few seconds before dissipating. Vortex notwithstanding, it looks decidedly unimpressive. Aroma of light malt with hints of sweetness and stewed leaves. A twinge of cardboard in the background. Not much going on.

Tastes of light malt with a mild finish. Notes of faint grain and weak stewed leaves. Dry, with a subtle bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and lightly tingly, but thin and insubstantial. Reminiscent of sparkling mineral water. Aftertaste of faint malt - virtually nothing there.

No great shakes - there's not much to say about this lager. Very bland; both aroma and flavour have faint hints of malt and stewed hops. This is what the ghost of a beer must taste like. Both appearance and body are subpar. Nothing offensive about it but it leaves me cold - I like my beer to taste of something. Give it a miss.

2.08/5  rDev -23.8%

1st Beer of a 'Random Beer Evening'.

330ml brown bottle: 3 months out of date when poured into a Duvel glass on 17 Aug 2013.

Looked fine: clear and clean, deep golden body with a full white crown of bubbles on top.

Aroma of wet cardboard with a metallic clunk to it: some sweetness too.

Grainy taste, with added sugar, not nice at all. Tried to get into it, but failed: had to open a packet of crisps to help me finish the glass off.

Worst beer I've had from New Zealand: not that I've had many.
