Beer of the week

A new beer from NZ's Steinlager has just been released. Dubbed 'Pure', it has a flashy ad campaign that caught my eye and tempted me to pick up a 12er.
I like the original Steinlager Premium, so with this new brew having only water, yeast, barley and hops in it, I expected a nice refreshing drop. In fact it's a bit bland, almost watery. There's not much evidence of hops at all, and as you know I love my hops! Not an offensive beer, but not one that makes you want to buy it again either. Easy to drink, maybe a little too easy, and with 5% alcohol it can creep up on you a bit... at least I think it can, I could be wrong, as I was very, very drunk.
