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

Bottle from House of Fraser, Birmingham. Pours clear amber, fizzy with just a halo of head. Aroma is strongly hoppy for a lager, with Marmite. Watery mouthfeel and disappointing flavour - initial bitterness and diluted Marmite but a short finish. Poor.

375 cl bottle in Hong Kong, 14 HK$. Yellow color, clear, big white head, skunky nose. Aroma is grassy, straw, mild grains. Taste is crisp, watery body, dry finish, moderately bitter. Average.

Mass market lager, not much else really needs to be said. Hahn premium lager is miles better than this.

M_Sack (342) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. It's macro lager crap, but it's probably the best macro lager crap in Australia. I'm not going to bother intellectualising it.

From a bottle. It’s one of the better offerings at most bars, it’s well balanced hop and malt flavours make it worth a go.

MarkoNm (409) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 10, 2014
Another lager that pours a clear golden color and a couple of fingers of white head quickly settling down. Malty and grainy aroma is followed by light taste, sweet start and hardly any bitterness in the taste. Not bad, but nothing special.

Davhgbrew (927) - 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.

Beerhunter111 (6776) - Hasborn, GERMANY - APR 1, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, muffig, getreidig. Geschmack wässrig malzig, getreidig.

Muggus69 (1132) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
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.
