1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Above average Aussie macro lager, with a fair bit less cardboard than most, really not too dirty at all. Probably as good a beer as the Premium, really - but a damn sight cheaper.

Tastes like an okay allround aussie basic lager, nothing inoffensive, reminds me of Duff

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml bottle with screwed crown cap bought at TASTE in Olympian City, Tai Kok Tsui.
Light amber golden colour; One-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Near zero sticky lacing with notable small carbonation; Slightly pungent and sweet smell of malt, with grains, light caramel, strong corn syrup, bread, faint lemon and faint grass; Light sweet taste of light malt, with light roastyness, strong grains with traces of rice, light wet cardboard, band-aid, soda water, light bread, shades of lemon and low bitter grassy hops; Light body. Watery palate; Mouth feel is better-made Asian macro Pale, with bits of caramel-roastyness in the mix. Otherwise itís Macro thin maltyness loaded with grains and rice. No sweetness, but there are light wet paper and some small amount of band-aid (yuck!). Slightly bready and low hops. No!... Hoppiness is faint lemon low grass in nose and taste. Macro low-fi bitterness for watery finish; Wet after taste. Easy to mouth.
Comments: Slight oxidation aside, this is just not a good macro lager: Poor sweet aroma with lots of adjuncts, and the small showing of amber malt canít save this one. Not worth a second chance.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale gold pour with almost non-existent white head. Grainy, malty aroma. Sweet, grainy, malty taste, there is a little bitterness at the end. Itís actually not that bad for the style - one of the better macro lagers in Australia.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a bottle. Pours a clear amber with thick coarse bubbled white head, a little over carbonated, watery and not overly flavoursome. Itís OK at best.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, 0.375l. Clear deep golden color with medium frothy white head, fair lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of grains, yeast, grassy hops and some citrus notes. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt, follows refreshing grassy and mild fruity with moderate bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Slightly better than other Aussie lagers...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
OLD NOTES OCT 6, 2004
Yeasty, malty nose with a sharp citrusy hop hit to it. Pours a standard sort of gold body with foamy head. Crisp malt body with a decent serve of floral hops and yeasty flavours. For what itís worth itís very drinkable. Certainly knocks pretty much every Aussie macro "draft" beer out of the water.
