COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional full flavoured draught beer, master brewed using a blend of crystal malts and a unique brewing method, which impart a rich, malty character to balance the hop bitterness.

varanid99 (472) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2014
Pale gold pour with almost non-existent white head. Grainy, malty aroma. Sweet, grainy, malty taste, there is a little bitterness at the end. Itís actually not that bad for the style - one of the better macro lagers in Australia.

StevieT (538) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2014
From a bottle. Pours a clear amber with thick coarse bubbled white head, a little over carbonated, watery and not overly flavoursome. Itís OK at best.

Kita (988) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 27, 2014
Can, 0.375l. Clear deep golden color with medium frothy white head, fair lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of grains, yeast, grassy hops and some citrus notes. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt, follows refreshing grassy and mild fruity with moderate bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Slightly better than other Aussie lagers...

Muggus69 (1139) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
OLD NOTES OCT 6, 2004 Yeasty, malty nose with a sharp citrusy hop hit to it. Pours a standard sort of gold body with foamy head. Crisp malt body with a decent serve of floral hops and yeasty flavours. For what itís worth itís very drinkable. Certainly knocks pretty much every Aussie macro "draft" beer out of the water.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2013
Tipical lager, but some more dept in the flavour and some more punch too it. Typical hay, and grass in the aroma, flavour not that sour that many other lagers. Good for itís style.

mattyhennessy (269) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2013
Not the worst, but not great. A mass produced pale lager. Good carbonation with a foamy white head. Subtle sweetness with mild hops

22415brewery (371) - redmond, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Not terrible. A below-average go-to Australian style pale lager draught in bottle form. Lager-like yeast characteristics rise out of the glass, slight sulfur, lightly toasty, and a little corny aroma. Tastes like your average macro-brew lager, unoffensive yet underwhelming. Slight tinny/metallic flavor in the finish. Thin in flavor overall but it at least does not display a sugary or fake sweetness. Middle of the road at best.
