COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A European style lager brewed from the finest quality pilsner malts. This beer is fermented at a lower temperature than most Australian lagers, and employs an extended maturation period. These combine together with a mixture of kettle and late hopping to yield a crisp pale lager

Davhgbrew (928) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2014
Malty yet nicely crisp and hopped. Medium bodied and slightly creamy smooth texture. Skunky aroma. Clean and easy drinking. Surprisingly nice lager. Carbonation is moderate and there are no lingering displeasing flavors.

OLD NOTES MAR 4, 2004 A very crisp, sweet flavoured beer. Quite light but as far as macro Aussie lager/pilsner style beers there’s not too many better.

Kita (986) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle, 0.375l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grainy, grassy, vegetably and bready. Taste starts with light sweet and sour grainy malt, follows by mild citric and yeasty acidity, crisp and dry mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Classic lager taste without any premium features...

MRMedellin (209) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - JAN 24, 2014
The aroma is quite good, the flavor is ok, but the body is quite watery, and the end is smooth, good for a sunny day, but not for something else.

Poured cold here in my hotel room in Tasmania. Interesting aroma of skunk, corn. appearance isn’t bad: clear yellow, bubble trails, some head that lasts, lace. Flavor’s like nose. Body’s thin. Finish is meh. Barely fills a need.

SamP01 (543) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Pours a dark golden yellow with a small short lived white head. Aroma and taste is of grains, cereal, grassy and light fruity notes. A medium body palate, crisp with good carbonation. Finish is grains, grass and fruity. Overall a very non descript mass produced brew, but still an ok brew for summer drinking.
