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.

Bov (10933) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 28, 2009
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

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 1, 2009
Bottled 375ml. Corny metallic nose. Reminiscence of lemonade, apple and crackers in the taste which is rather metallic. Low bitterness. Unpleasant finish. Very poor.

mkel07 (4541) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2009
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.

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.

Draught. Grainy malt aroma. Thin but unoffensive. Malt palate with a mild hop bitterness.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2008
...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.

Surferdude (8) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2008 does not count
Not offencsive and basic. Straight foward no-nonsense Australian draught.. Honest, good beer. Aroma is below average and it has a negative aftertast.
