0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This is how beer smells. Well, at least this is how 99.9% of the beer drunk in Australia smells - sweet and full of Pride of Ringwood. Tastes even worse, the sickly sweetness managing to have me pulling a face of disgust without even realising. This can somehow be tolerated if drunk with very small sips, but who the hell does that when drinking a beer under 5% abv. However it comes in a great clear bottle that lets you see exactly how the beer looks. How good is that!

Serve it really, really cold and you can drink this and it will be clean crisp and refreshing. But don’t let you glass stay full for long or it will warm up enough for you to really taste what it is like.
Serve cold, drink quick or choose something else.

I don’t understand all the hate for this beer. Clean, crisp and refreshing... One of my all-time favorites and there perfect for hot Aussie days...

OLD RATING OCT 14, 2003
Really have no idea why people buy this anymore. Watery, horribly skunky, as per most Carlton macro swill. With Carlton Dry out there why does this even exist? Probably the closest thing you’ll ever hear to a compliment to Carlton Dry there...

I had four of these at a backyard in Sydney about ten years ago, felt like I was going to die. I would drink this if I was loving in 1976. No taste, pure horror.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Eine dezente herb-bittere Note legt sich im Antrunk auf den Gaumen, das Bier schmeckt ansonsten fad und meiner Meinung im Antrunk leicht abgestanden. Im Grunde war es das - das Bier hat sonst nichts zu bieten.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden, white fizzy head, lively carbonated. Smell of citrus fruit. Taste of unripe pineapples, sour green apples and lemon peel. Fortunately I shared the 375 ml bottle at the second beer session in Tårnrommet 29.01.09, and didn’t have to drink a lot of it.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
375 ml bottle. Golden straw colour. Medium-sized fine-laced white head that clings to the glass. Sugary malt aroma with notes of wet paper. Smooth texture and a soft carbonation. The body is light and the softness is cut by crisp hop bitterness in the finish. Watery. A beer that has been stripped by most flavours, except for some residual simple sugars. Rather tiring to drink by my palate. I’d rather have something that tastes pleasant.
