from Bier-Bienne - translucide and bright golden-amber colour with a poor head retention; notes of glue and caramel in the nose; slightly sticky on the mouth, medium-bodied and with some harsh tartness; short fizzy and caramelish aftertaste

Bottled 375ml. Corny metallic nose. Reminiscence of lemonade, apple and crackers in the taste which is rather metallic. Low bitterness. Unpleasant finish. Very poor.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle. Pleasantly surprised by this one. Clear, sparkling and amber in colour with a nicely compacted head of snow white foam. Aroma of hops and malt with a hint of sudsy water. Crisp taste that zings on the tongue, feels good in the mouth and has a mild bitterness with a nice refeeshing flavour.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2009 Tap @ pub
It is not often that I find myself unable to actually finish drinking a beer; I regretted buying this, luckily it was only a single schooner. It has the generic colour of a pale lager, a thin white head which barely lasts; typical of Australian macro lagers. The aroma of it was somewhat hoppy and fruity, but by no means pleasant. The flavour of it was the worst part however; it is like the aroma, only made much worse.
This is a horrible brew, not worth buying or drinking.

On tap at Cheers in Sydney. (We were watching the Steelers-Ravens game. Go Steelers!) Clear gold, white head. Aroma is hoppy and malty. Flavor is the same with stale grassiness.

...draft. Was a lively, clear golden amber in the glass with a small white head that faded to nothing. On the nose were a good dose of floral hops and malt, with a touch of honey. Flavors were malty, with some hops and a light bodiy. Finished dry, clean with some mild bitterness. Wasn’t that bad really, and kicks VB or any of the other regulars right in the balls.

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.

Not offencsive and basic. Straight foward no-nonsense Australian draught.. Honest, good beer. Aroma is below average and it has a negative aftertast.
