2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A-- Poured a clear, golden straw color. Lots of small and medium sized carbonation bubbles that stream from the bottom of the glass. half finger of bright white head that almost instantly went to a thin white collar.
S-- Slight grassy and bread notes. Not the heavy metallic smell that VB, Toohey’s New, MB, or XXXX have. Very faint smell and quite clean.
T-- Sweet bread, grass and citrus. Very clean and crisp. Massive improvement over any of the mainland Australia Bitters. Nothing massive by any stretch but in reality a good soda water with some malt and hops.
M-- Clean, crisp, thin, and light. Light bodied and lots of carbonation. More like soda water metallic but that is not a bad thing at all. A little bloating due to the high carbonation but not all that bad.
O-- Suitable replacement for sparkling water. Not much wrong with this and not much that just says have more of me. Leaps and bounds better than the normal Aussie "bitter" beers. Just a clean refreshing beer with not a lot of other stuff.

Another Aussie beer that although inoffensive just doesn’t really have anything to offer. Sweet and ever so slightly malty, tastes alright chilled out of the fridge though.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tried at Cascade Brewery not a lot of difference between the lager. Light golden body, a little sweeter maybe, drinkable and not much else.

Available only in Tasmaina, so I had to try it. Really hard to tease out much difference between this and the lager. Maybe a little maltier, but ultimately its all grainy cereal that’’s been overcooked. As others have stated already, this isn’t a true bitter by a long shot, more of a standard lawnmower beer.

Pale gold in colour with average to high carbonation. Thin and rapidly disapearing white head. Fizzy mouthfeel. Watery. Quite sweet as pale lagers go. Moderately bitter. Nothing special. - 375ml brown glass bottle.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow-Golden in colouring with a small sized medium lasting head. Hints of maltiness and stale hops in the aroma. Not very bitter, but a corny/fruity flavour was evident in this unoffensive blandish drop.

Had quite a few of these in a bar in Kings Cross, Sydney, Australia. Not very good. Tastes like macrobrewed Amerian crap. Not even bitter really. They aimed and missed with this one.
