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 thereís nothing good about it. I guess the statement in their promotional material "We treat our beer like beer, itís what beer was before all the tossers tried to treat it like wine." says it all - they donít care what it tastes like, itís 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 itís 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 wasnít much available at the Coles bottle ío 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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 330ml bottle on 6/2/2010. Has a slightly odd aroma, almost a little like white wine. Flavour wise, there isnít too much going on here - has a moderate sweetness with the barest hint of a lemony tang. An unremarkable line and length lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Australian Beer Festival, Sydney.
First brewery I bumped into at the festival, set the bar a bit low unfortunately.
Standard Aussie pale lager really, not a great deal of hop or malt flavour, quite dry, not particularly bitter, bit lean bodied, fizzy, slight metallic bready skunk on the finish.
