2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Is it a successful marketing strategy to move away from beer labels that provoke a sense of historical esteem to those that are cartoony and "youthfully humourous"? I don’t know and I don’t care. It’s what’s inside that counts. And inside this blokey bottle is pure averageness. I certainly didn’t taste ANY of the qualities listed by the previous rater (and believe me, I tried!). Instead I found a pale lager that was light in colour and just as light in flavour. Aside from a faintly wheaty palate with a very light hop presence, this beer has nowhere near the personality of its label (by some peoples’ stadards, that may actually be a good thing). An average easy-drinking summertime beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pretty bland and easy going beer. Not really bad in any way. I found it had mixed notes of wheat and lager yeast. Was a little bit of an in-between beer. Solid quaffer

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a white head that doesn’t hang around. Aroma is lemony and a bit grainy with obvious wheat. Light bodied. Crackery with little bitterness but a whack of lemon and a dryish finish. A wheat lager, eh? An OK dust cutter for a warm evening.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Well I was not expecting a lot and so I was not disappointed! I wasn’t excited either! Clear pale golden straw body with a good lasting solid white head. Light hops on the nose. Thin taste, some citrus notes and not a lot of anything else.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A little chauvinistic of the Cascade lads to think that a beer with the characteristics of an all round crowd-pleaser to the fairer sex should be named in honour of what most men think of each time they down a few of these. My wife loved this one, stating "Mmm, that’s a girls drink"; after just one sip. Pretty much summed it up really! So if any of that made sense I shall now rate it. Poured into a weissbier glass; clear, yellowish gold body, well charged. Typically Aussie pale lager looking with a huge, albeit certainly artificial, fluffy white crown that left rings down the glass. Fairly light on in the nose. Watermelon and fruit rinds, maybe a little honey. Not at all exciting in the mouth with watered down lemon cordial, passion-fruit and table sugar (Traditional lemonade!?!) making up the thinly soapy palate. Light in body and reasonably soft in carbonation; a slight ’zing’ comes in down the side of the tongue and the finish is dominated by a flavour like ’Passiona’ soft drink. Nothing offensive in this one, it really wasn’t beer in my own opinion, but hey if the chicks dig it..... (375mL, 23/05/06)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours amber with a large, fading head.
Uber-skunky aroma, but also some honey, wheat, citrus and coriander.
Flavours also show a fair whack of citrus and coriander, other just a lot of sweet malt and very soft doughy wheat. Could really use some bitterness!
Very watery body.
