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

jmgreenuk (4112) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle shared with friends. Poured a crystal clear amber with a thin white head and lots of carbonation. The aroma is stale malt leading to a weak bitter, weak hoppy flavour and a watery palate. Pretty awful really. If I picked up a bottle in the Sahara after not drinking for a week I’d now think twice about opening it!

Slight grassy aroma, not much other then that. Maybe a slight step above most pale lagers, but essentially the same thing. this one is fairly smooth and drinkable, but taste is a sweet grassy, slight hint of citrus.

danlo (1093) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
375ml bottle. Pale golden yellow colour, foam white head that leaves some lacing and aroma of malt, hay, straw, abit grassy. Taste is malty, sweet sourish, with grassy bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. OK lager.

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2013
bottle. Golden with small head. Not the most exciting beer ever, but a nice lawnmower beer. Lager with hoppy bite.

Imaena (1811) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. This was another Vanuatu drink that may have been better given the circumstances. which means this is probably truly awful in the light of day.

garthicus (2658) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 12, 2013
Blast from the past. I used to drink this in Oz back in the day. First time drinking one in around 13 years. Appearance: bright yellow, tiny white head. Aroma: wet cardboard, grass, plastic. Flavour. Wet cardboard, wet grass, plastic too. Long bitter harsh finish. Yikes.

Beergeek23322 (2190) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2013
April 2011. Bottle. Grain, malt and grassy aromas. Clear pale yellow color with a white head. Flavors are light on hops and malts. Somewhat diluted.

Bierkrug (2133) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2013
330 ml bottle from Giraffe in Dubai. Pours a nice amber color with a soft long lasting white head. Aroma is sweet malt citrus and fruit, but very weak. taste is more intensive but stil the same. Palate is nice. just below average.

jkwood04 (3804) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 17, 2013
375ml bottle. Looks light. Aroma of pale malts and light floral hops. Flavor about the same. Light texture. Old bottle, but I don’t think it’d make much of a difference.
