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

37.5 cL bottle. Pours clear and pale yellow with a small white head. Smooth malty and slight earthy hops aroma. Smooth hoppy base flavour with a mild fruityness and a light caramel to biscuit malt sweetness. Medium bitterness and light sweetness into the finish. Clean and classic pale lager.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2005 (Bottle 37,5 cl) Another beer that suddenly appeared in Denmark due to the royal wedding when everything tasmanian was talk of the town. Golden, creamy. High malt-sweetness and very subdued bitterness. Very mainstream pale lager. 150205

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2007
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized fluffy white head. Aroma is frshly cut grass with mild herbs along with hops and malts. Flavour is rather sweet malts with some hints of grassyness. Also quite grainy and hayish hoppy. I would say a rather smooth and pleasant pale lager.

omhper (19219) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2002
Pale golden coloured. Fairly light bodied, hint of spices, bitter finish. Nothing special, but surely an acceptable lager.

cgarvieuk (14025) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle at home ... Golden yellow ... very light hop ... soft fruit light malt slightly sweet ... fairly innocuous ... and considering it a lager i could drink it.

MiP (13513) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2009
Bottle, 5.0%. Rough aroma, old hops, some skunk. Clear yellow colour. Small white head. The flavour is quite citric, almost lemony. Other than that slightly grainy and sourish, so the lemon note actually helps hide the other flavours.

harrisoni (13261) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle at The Rake thanks to Duff. Pale clear gold lasting thin white head. Cereal and corn aroma. Its ok some nasty adjunct but not too offensive.
