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

Fresh, light tasting lager for a hot summer's day. Not bad but nothing special. Rated by BrewTom

Australian lager, brewed with water ’sourced’ from the Esk River in Tasmania, which probably means they pumped it out of it. Compared to most Australian beers, it actually tastes like they put some effort into it. Pretty flat, though. The Esk River, or so I imagine, bubbles lustily over its rapids on the label, sort of cute.

Had this beer quite a few times, never really got around to rating it properly. Probably my least favourite out of the premium pale lagers out there, always find it has a bit of an off-grassy aroma and taste. Definitely would not recommend.

Bottled 375 ml at a gaming place, Devonport (Tasmania), on August 4, 2013.
Devonport closed early this night.
BB 29/01/14.
Clear pale golden color, lasting bubbly white head. Malty, sweet, some vegetable taste. Grainy, dry, overcooked vegetables aftertaste. Mainly vegetables and some rotten hay scent. Medium mouthfeel, a bit fizzy, low bitterness.
Not pleasant, no not at all.

jmgreenuk (4600) - 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!

Rob_D_UK (806) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2013
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 (1214) - 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.
