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

Strykzone (4897) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2006
This beer looks like a champagne in its color and in its carbonation. It is clear enough to see the carbonation in action. There is a thin white head and an oily lacing. That lacing adds a creaminess to the mouth feel. Flavor here is very muted but is mostly dry malt and corn. There is the slightest taste of apples and a tiny bit of bitterness late, but again, flavor is muted here. This beer is very drinkable and straightforward. Just donít look for much excitement. But then it is a pale lager.

375ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Cheers Ash! Pours clear pale gold, big white head. Aromas of grass and light lemon. Taste has a light malt sweetness, more light lemon. Medium body, slightly astringent finish. OK.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours no head whatsoever on a clear medium straw colored body. The aroma is a weak grain aroma. The taste has a mild sweetness at first but balances out nicely. The texture is crisp and fizzy with a light body. The appearance and smell are wanting but the taste and texture are fine enough.

WheatKing (1287) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle. Straw white head. Nose is malt green apple and anise, strangely. Flavour is pretty austere, which I like, with green apple, which I donít. So for a green apple beer itís good.

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

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. Itís one of the better offerings at most bars, itís well balanced hop and malt flavours make it worth a go.
