2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tried straight from the tap at the brewery after doing the tour and it was drinkable, Golden yellow body with short lasting head. Slightly grainy in aroma and taste and not as sweet as the bitter.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Seems to be the staple tap offering for pubs in Tasmania’s south. Quite similar to the forgettable lager model although the malt weight has been stepped up a notch. I thought the tap version was average but this sample, straight from the bottle, showed the same crappy industrial malts but slivers of sweetness and genuine bitterness made this beer acceptable (just!).

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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
