More of a pilsener than an american standard, I quite like this one much better than its Tassie counterpart. Short head, gold colour and good bitterness for me,could be a little bit more fuller flavours there but then you can't have everything.

This beer has a light yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a light body.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2003 One of the top 3 beers I have ever encountered. The flavor and aroma are outstanding, with a great aftertaste. A beer that lives up to expectations, and keeps you going back to the fridge for more.

This is like a lot of the other 'premium' beers. Palatable but eminently unremarkable. Some of the comments are really stupid. Fermented at a lower temperature. What is this supposed to mean? The sort of beer that bobs up at work functions, and at least better than the light.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2004 A very good fresh lager with a nice finish. Quite soft underneath the surface, due to the great fruity aroma. Clean beer, packs a nice head, but i wouldnt call it a true lager as it has a more fizzy, softer mouthfeel withuout much grain.

A fantastic Tassy beer. I'm not sure why I like it, I just do. Perhaps its that clean Tasmanian water that brings out the flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 Probably the best mainstream beer in the country. Don’t get me wrong, Grand Ridge, Holgate, Little Creatures, Coopers or Mountain Goat are far better beers but this stuff is very easy to drink. The thing I like about it is you can enjoy stuff in warm weather at a BBQ or grab a six-pack and in front of the fire on a Friday night while watching the footy on the TV during a Melbourne winter.

Bottled. Bright strew yellow colour with shiny head to go with it. Decent malt and hop aroma. Bitter-to-dry finish.

This is the Australian's idea of a quality lager - and it's all down to the pure water from the Esk river. Mmm - just a normal global lager, slightly softer than average, but otherwise unremarkable.

Wonderfully light beer, mild aroma, rolls around your tongue unfortunately sometimes leaving a bit of an oily feeling in your mouth. Beautiful, easy to drink beer.
