Well, i don’t know about this one, i don’t think its a bitter as the it says above, lagers probably the better word. sweet start,sweetish, slightly bitter finish, wit a crappy chemical finish, horrible.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright clear gold colour with a medium-size fully lasting head. Hoppy aroma with a smooth flavour that is nothing too exciting but easily quaffable.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Plain old gold beer with an average white head that stuck to my glass quite well. Got a good whiff of tasty fresh citrusy hops and the smallest hint of malt. The hops dominate what exists for flavour. Those same hops crinkled my tongue and left a nice bitter finish. Drank in under 5 minuites - sucker went down with amazing ease.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Another thin-bodied lager in Boags’ drab line-up. It poured the colour of Sunday morning piss, with slightly more head. Lots of citric hops and little else in the aroma. A skinny quenching palate and the faintest of dry finishes. So bland I’m struggling to keep my eyes open. (Bottle)

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Always a worry when you see something on special that hasn’t actually been in the shops for a long time here. Probably the rep said this was a good deal and thought it was worth an unload here. The description says it is a pale lager. It is. Beertalk synonyms for pale in my mind are bland, fleeting. lifeless and unexceptional. Put this in a blind tasting and it would truly be confused with a number of average Aussie lagers

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
MGC under a medium size medium lasting head. Faintly stale bitter hops aroma. Medium fizzy bitter flavours, with hints of floral character on warming. Blander soda watery finish. Medium-low lawnmower factor.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
An all round inoffensive blandish beer. Doesn’t suffer form the chemical nastiness of most standard Aust lagers. Probbaly a good reguler quaffer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
More bitter than the Classic but I can’t imagine anyone really enjoying this.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice gold colour with good head retention and lacing. Very clean aroma, pretty much nothing going on, which is an advantage over most of its contemporaries. Flavour of crystal malt, pretty light on otherwise and not as bitter as I recall. Quite drinkable and without any real flaws but doesn’t really have anything all that great about it either really.
