0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
...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.

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.

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.
