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.

Bottle - Pours amber with nice head. Tastes of grain and slight hops with a bitter finish. It has a rough texture and medium body compared to say boags premium which tastes watery. A good staple beer for a casual night in.

Tap. Another boring pale lager. Very little in the aroma, just some malt. Flavour is sweet, with light bitter finish. Thin and watery in the palate. Yellow colour, with a frothy white head.

This is the beer I grew up on and in my humble opinion still one of the better standard aussie lagers out there. Pours pale amber with slight caramel malt aroma. Virtually no hop aroma but clean bitterness and light-med malt flavour. A good lawnmower beer.

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 (2843) - 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 (5226) - 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.
