2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear pale gold; good fluffy yellowish-white head. Vegetable, very grassy nose, hay, greenmalt. Mainly sweet pilsnermalt taste, again a bit grassy, very grainy. Finishes bit tart-metallic, even harsh. Quite refreshing, light bodied, fizzy MF. WTH is this relabled pilsner doing in Australia?

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Labelling suggested this was a trappist beer but was more like a sweetish cornish malty lager brew of a sort difficult to categorise. Was bizarre. Very chewy and grainy and not watery. Plenty of floaters added to its strangeness. A beer from another dimension. Something different but not great. Not sure would buy another.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Humdrum lager from a real hit-and-miss Belgian brewer. Lager gold colour, with some sedimentation and a short head. The nose has some citric hops. The palate is thin and quenching. Some sweetness and then nutty bitterness in the finish. Passable lager but unremarkable. (Bottle)

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2009 Very pale in colour and quite cloudy (in the bits floating in it kind of way)
Tastes a little like its stuck between styles lager/Trappist Ale, and failed on both.
Too sweet for a lager and not challenging enough for a Trappist.
Definately quite watery, but the sweetness there was of a very faint bitter orange and honey.
A little too dry on the end.

clear pale golden colour, fine head, modest herbal hoppiness, sweet, light to medium body, the finish is slightly dry and mostly tasteless - unspectacular

7 May 2004 - AIBA 2004 - Suphur sweet malt, clear yellow, easy drinking hop flavour, a bit thin and dissapointing.

Pale golden colour, particles floating and a poor lasting head. Plain hop aroma and a boring chewable taste with a faint touch of bitterness.

Poured clear very light gold with a medium lasting white head. Medium carb. Skunky hop aroma, nothing else really. Thin watery body. Sweet bland taste. Boring!
