Earthy hops with some caramel and a slight aroma of baking bread followed by the meatiness of the classic Australian draught lager. A flavour that makes many people recall coming-of-age in Tasmania, while others might call it an old-school draught beer and drink for a little of the retro-cool factor.

Available only in Tasmania, as are the bitter and the lager. This is by far the best of the three, and one of the best bottled draught selections I’ve yet tried. Standard brassy gold with a foamy white head. Clean grainy aroma with a hint of fruit. The grainy palate has a faintly roasty quality, but a surprisingly refreshing fruitiness to the finish that is almost quenching (it made me think of quince). A pleasant surprise.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2007 Yellowish amber with a white head which rapidly dissipates. Very thin bodied and overly carbonated, A metallic bitterness, otherwise rather tasteless.

Standard appearance for the style. Toasty malt aroma, a bit sweet and steamy, tin cans. Typical nutty urine malt flavour which stops very short and becomes a bit watery, then a pretty strong and quite metallic bitterness. I kinda enjoyed it - seemed very fresh at least. Competition for Boags Draught on the mainland now?

One of Australia’s greatest mainstream beers. Nothing special just tastes good every time no matter how many you drink. Miles better than boags draught.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2003 I have a soft spot for this beer, it has drunk me through my teenage years a treat and therefore gets my approval. It has no great amazing feat that will blow you away, but thats it strength. Its easy going, a great sessional beer, you can drink long into the night on this baby. cheers

I'm probably biased, being a local, but this is a fine drop. Great tap beer and just as good in the stubbie or long neck. Not out of place on the dinner table, at the bbq, at the footy, or wherever. Definitely a good one that never lets you down.

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2003 A fair beer but lacks consistency batch to batch. Can be quite nice but unfotunately often tastes musky or watery. This beer also does not have a palate, allowing for one to slide down after another. Not bad though, good footy deals with it at 9/11
