3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4.4%ABV. Pale Lager
Tapped out gold. 5°SRM.
Nose is just beery good!
Mouthfeel is sudsy. There is a nice thick beery palate of pale malts and wheat. The sourness in palate could be millet or sorghum.
Nice clean finish. I think I would like to put this on the list for the following reasons:
1. I had it on tap as a draught which apparently is available no where else except in Tassie.
2. It represents a Tassie tradition, and although based on taste, may not be the equal of more thoughtful, creative or elevated contemporary brews, is still the workaday local beer on tap for cheap and has been helping generations of working Tasmanians go home with a bit more home after a long day.
Goes on Favorites List!

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
There was an open bottle around so i sampled it. Pretty devoid of flavour, very light bodied, virtually no malt flavour or hop aroma. Blah.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lemony grassy water sitting atop an insipid malt, but still, I’d drink this over a Stella.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Orangy gold with a frothy white head. Medium carbonation and body. Sweet and malty. Drinkable but nothing special.

Oh god why did I bother? I dislike commercial lager at the best of times.... This bilge leaves a cloying stale yeasty taste. Nasty.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden pale colour with a low white head. Clean and crisp. Sweet, but no real defining flavours. Not a memorable lager, but a good standard for the region.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale gold in colour with a thin white head. Moderately bitter. Thin bodied and watery. Short dry and slightly metalic finish. Nothing special in the flavour department but a not bad lager. 375ml brown glass bottle.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Can only get this stuff in Tassie, and usuall only around Hobart. Unremarkable beer that is by no means offensive but by no means a taste sensation either. Was the brewery's most popular beer 10 years ago but since been well overtaken by just about everything else, including Cascade Draught, which is now the brewery's best selling beer in Tasmania.

Hard to rate this beer as it has little going for it really (other than it’s price). Not offensive in any way really just lacking in any real flavour. Alright if you’re after something cheap to stick in the fridge for a BBQ.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2004 This is a classic, vintage cascade beer. Not widely consumed these days, but still an old stallion. Goes down well mosttimes. No standout but just the right balance of hoppyness and maltiness. Best looking stubby in the world in my opinion.
