Austbloke (10) - - SEP 1, 2005
Suppose to be one of the flagship premium beers in Australia. How it ever got any rating as a premium beer is beyond me. The battle is lost even before you get this stuff in to your mouth. An off rotting type smell that does nothing to help the palate. Still it does have a good clear golden look with a nice gold label. All in All probably the worst beer in Australia other then Tooheys Red and its close relation VB.

Bottle at home. Poured a light golden with little to no head. Not really any aroma and very weak water taste. Not nice

The gold label tries to convey that this is a good quality beer, but don’t be fooled. Just more boring piss from Carlton breweries

JaKeAFC (498) - ITALY - JUL 20, 2014
37.5 cl bottle from Wellcome, in Hong Kong, 4.9%. Pale gold color, short white head. Lagery and hoppy in the nose. Aroma is focuses on bittering elements, with a noticeable amount of hops, then metallic and a bit soapy. Malts profile is under cover. Taste is bitter, crisp, dry bitter finish, watery texture. Actually this seems close to a pilsener, Quite clean.

Little to no aroma. Clear golden colour with good head. Little to no flavor and no aftertaste. Light body with little to no carbonation.

Holmen1 (2315) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Flaske fra Gml. Strand øllager, i Kongens have juli-14: selv ikke den freske storbandmusikken fra scenen kan hjelpe denne. Ikke stol på bryggeriets selvskryt, dette er boring, boring and utterly boring.

Iphonephan (3066) - McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2014
From a 375 ml bottle in Tasmania. Pours a clear pale gold with an off white head. Aroma of corn bread. Run of the mill pale lager flavor. Crisp finish with a slight bitterness

If held at gun point, I can sip one of these with minimal complaints. At least there are some real ingredients to taste. Certainly better than most of the mass produced pale lagers of Australia but still not terribly great.

Kita (1000) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle, 0.375l. Clear deep golden color with medium frothy white head and fair lacing. Aroma is grainy, bready, mild caramelly and grassy. Taste starts with moderate sweet grainy malt, follows by mild fruity sourness with some vegetable notes and medium bitter finish. Light to medium body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Average lager with very nice bottle...
