Sampled in Adelaide. A pretty solid lager that has a good flavor of malts and goes well with a well cooked meal. Overall one of the betters.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not offencsive and basic. Straight foward no-nonsense Australian draught.. Honest, good beer. Aroma is below average and it has a negative aftertast.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
375 ml bottle - Golden/amber colour. White, mostly lasting head. Medium carbonation. Sweet malt with a slight honey flavour in the background. Mildly bitter leaving the finish slightly on the sweet side. One of the better Australian macro lagers.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange/amber in colour with a thin white head which rapidly dissapates. Medium bodied with average to high carbonation. Bitter mouthfeel with a slightly metalic aftertaste. Crisp dry finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brilliant draught beer, not done justice outside of northern Tasmania due to only being sold bottled. By far one of the best in the country on tap.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle -- Pours a nice amber colour with quite a decent white head that lasts well and leaves fair lacing. Aroma is gentle with a touch of hops and, perhaps, honey. Pleasant flavour although a bit of a metallic mouthfeel. Definitely better than most macro lagers and thoroughly drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not bad, very similar to VB, nothing to get excited about, a good everyday beer that gets the job done.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pretty poor, a very mainstream Australian lager taste. Surely just an elaborate marketing ploy to make the premium boags seem a whole lot more premium.
