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

Good two finger head, malty character, taste a bit of corn syrup, grain then a slightly bitter follow through. Easy on the palate. Overall a solid fullish lager. I quite liked it.

BlackHaddock (6394) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
375ml bottle at the July 2016 Shrewsbury Bottle Share meeting: cheers Mat. Bright, clean and clear golden body with a fast fading white head. Corn led aroma and taste, but not all bad, as it tasted OK, if a little on the sweet side.

330ml bottle from Discount Supermarket, Cardiff. Pours clear gold, white head. Sweetcorn / syrup aroma. Taste isn’t actually that bad, nicely balanced with a mild sweetness, low bitterness and no off-flavours. Would have again.

KeefOz (1563) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2016
BB 13/10/16. Poured a crystal clear golden mid-amber colour with a one- to two-finger bright white frothy head that retained very well and laced well as rings. Aroma of grain and hints of malt; no obvious hops. taste of slightly sweet citrus; no real bitterness; a bit sour as it warms. Light body. Crisp, clean, smooth and refreshing with a moderate length slightly sweet finish. decent enough while cold.

Jow (3520) - New York, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Haven’t had one of these since college down under back around turn of century and since pale lagers go well with Indian food ordered. Norma golden colored. Nose is faint hops and light grains. Tastes of grains, hint of piney hops, touch of malt. No off flavors and refreshing enough for what it is.

Er det værd for HKH Mary at flytte til Danmark, eller er øllene bedre på Tasmanien? Denne øl er frisk i det, mildt humlet, og har en smag er blomster. En lagerøl i den bedre ende. HKH Mary behøver åbenbart ikke rejse hertil for at få godt øl, men der kan være der er andet der trækker. Der gives et halvt point for at man kan dreje kapslen af. godt tænkt!

Bottle on Manly Fast Ferry. Paired with a bag of original thins, which works.Green colour as I am drinking from the bottle. Could be worse for its style. Fairly refreshing, at least some hoppy taste, pleasant carbonation. Ultimately tastes of very little though.

jfb (5578) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2015
(bottle) clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of marzipan, straw and green apple, with some notes of bread dough and lemon peel. flavour is mostly hay and marzipan, slightly meaty, with a hint of powdered sugar and a slightly starchy semi-dry finish. light- to medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Bottle. Clear fizzy yellow body. Grassy notes in the aroma and flavor, fairly clean and no off-flavors. Slight mineral note, and overall inoffensive. I drank like 7 of these sitting on the beach in mid-winter NSW somewhere. It did the job.
