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

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a pilsen glass. A: Pours an absolutely clear and very pale yellow color forming a nice medium and bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of lacings left in the glass S: Strong sweet malts in the nose. Very bready. Light notes of aromatic and grassy hops T: Follows the nose. Strong notes of malts. Quite crispy and bread. Light hops bitterness in the end M: Very light body and medium carbonation. Crispy malty aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Standard Euro Lager, nothing special [ BA Review @ 5/9/2014 ]

Bottle from Continental Food Store, Wakefield. Pale golden, not much of a head. Decent tasting lager with lots of tasty grainy malt and a pilsner character.

One of the better widely available (in the UK) Australian beers, but considering the others that not saying much.

Nearly left Australiana without a taste of this lager- for shame. It slaked my thirst in the first leg of our 26 hour journey home. Clean flavor with light grain and a bit of cleansing hops. A bit if a bitter bite in the finish. Nothing much here but it’s a step above most similar brews.

Fatehunter (1948) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours no head whatsoever on a clear medium straw colored body. The aroma is a weak grain aroma. The taste has a mild sweetness at first but balances out nicely. The texture is crisp and fizzy with a light body. The appearance and smell are wanting but the taste and texture are fine enough.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle. Straw white head. Nose is malt green apple and anise, strangely. Flavour is pretty austere, which I like, with green apple, which I don’t. So for a green apple beer it’s good.
