For me this is the best of the mainstream Aussie lagers. Does not pretend to be anything fancy, but a perfect session beer. Just an easy drinking all round Aussie lager that is just a bit better than the big names. I bought most of them and then compared them, this one was the best. Price is slightly higher and only 330ml but worth it in my opinion. Not too much carbonation makes it easier to throwback. Excellent for the type of beer this is.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A cheap, mass produced Australian lager. Nothing special, but thirst quenching on a hot day. Little hip aroma or flavour. Pretty typical of the region

330ml Bottle- An easy drinking beer. Nothing special but drinkable on a hot day.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle- Pours a clear light yellow color with a small head and no real lacing. Aroma of some malt sweetness and bit of citrus and not much else. Taste of malt sweetness and bit of fruit. Mild bitterness and a bit of a lingering sweetness. Light body, smooth and pretty bland. Another run-of-the-mill lager, pretty boring really.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle) Clear pale amber with no head. Fairly indistinct aroma: insipid sweetness. Light body, fairly well carbonated. Very little flavour. Maybe a hint of bread with a hint of citrusy fruit at start. The very slightest bitterness in finish and that has a metallic edge. Overall, its drinkable, but there’s nothing good about it. I guess the statement in their promotional material "We treat our beer like beer, it’s what beer was before all the tossers tried to treat it like wine." says it all - they don’t care what it tastes like, it’s just a quick and easy way to get drunk.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yep it’s a pale lager but sure is a better alternative to the macro stuff. Bit part ginger beer, radler and golden all. Good use of subtle spices helps distract from the realities of the style. There wasn’t much available at the Coles bottle ’o in Merimbula so this was a mild surprise on the upside.

Reminded me of better version of VB. Chemically and watery with some draught notes. Bland though.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle. Clear bright golden colour with a flat even layer of foam. Not a lot going on with the aroma, hard to detect anything. Flavour is basic but okay.
