madquacker (1112) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2006
Gold colour with no head. No aroma identifiable. Lots of malt predominates with a bit of sweetness. Pretty bland but not too bad. Best of Bintara I’ve had so far.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2006
Clear orangey golden body with a poor head. Aroma is caramel and butter. Taste is boring, mainly the taste of malt comes through without much hops helping out.

Stew41 (1933) - Phuket, THAILAND - JAN 13, 2006
Pissy head…off to a bad start. Ultra clear amber. Sweet malty nose, boiled lollies, smells a bit cheap and nasty. Sweet flavours don’t really kick in on the palate, quite subdued and to be honest a bit lifeless. Carbonation levels are quite appropriate and the beer delivers a crisp, thirst quenching hit. Perhaps the best of the brewery but these guys need to do more.

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2006
Bottled. Clear golden, no head. Buttery malt aroma. Malt driven and very carefully hopped with clean rounded mouthfeel and low bitterness. A beer that doesn’t stick out in any direction, but still is well crafted.

highlandlad (1470) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2005
Mediocre naturally carbonated lager from the heartland of the Australian fortified wine industry. Poured an intense gold with a fat rocky head and busy carbonation. Middling head retention. Really liked the aroma from this one and can’t improve on Aarleks’ "honeyed" description. It’s sweet and very malty, with big honey notes. Ah, if only the flavour followed through. Instead you get a pale imitation of the aroma, thin in body and taste. It’s all sugary malt, with only the faintest late bitterness in the swallow. The natural carbonation here is a little too soda-like and burp inducing. (330ml bottle, thanks to Bridge for this one)

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2005
Bottle (RB Sydney XMASG ’05): Clear darkish gold. Honeyed, golden syrup malt aromas (lots of honey) with some slight grainy notes. This really lacked in the mouth; honey and slight watery grain. That’s it. Nice enough but falls over itself.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2005
Ah, the beer in the style from those brewed in the Marzin region of Germany ;-) Poured golden orange with not much of a head. A light aroma that was dominated by caramel malt. Light bitterness, and quite well balanced. A little too much carbonation on top of the light body. One of the brewery’s best - but that’s not saying much. (tap at brewery)
