2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle- pours a clear straw color with a small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma has that musty Euro Lager tinge, with some malt sweetness. Taste of malt sweetness and bit of fruit. Tangy bitterness and and a lingering aftertaste that is a bit metallic. Light body, fairly smooth. Just another Pale Lager in an ocean of lager beer

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours sparkling. Small head and clear. No aroma as such. Taste is of a lager (which it is?) rather than an ale. No malts. Slightly citrus. If I was on the beach surrounded by bikini clad girls, then maybe they’d take my mind off this beer and I’d drink it without realizing. As it was raining, and I was at home with the kids - I felt the full force of why Australia is a wine, not a beer country.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a clear golden amber colour with a thin white bubble head. Laced poorly but for the duration of the beer. Low carbonation. Aroma of malt. Tastes slightly of spicy hops. Light body. Short spicy hops finish.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Not a pale ale but a lager, so disappointing from the start, but an ok beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 330ml. Pretty boring. Aromas of citrus, hay, and band-aid. Taste is sweet, with average bitterness, and short length. Palate is thin and watery. Yellow, with a head that doesn’t last.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Another one of the Cascade beers that is only available in Tasmania. Golden body with a small white head. Aroma and flavour is sweet grainy malts with a subtle citrus hop finish. Clean palate with a medium body and carbonation. Better than most Aussie macro lagers but that’s not saying much.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I get torn between whether this beer is great or whether it is simply ordinary. Today I purchased a six pack for the first time in a number of years and yes it went down well but is it a Pale Ale I’m not so sure...
Worth a taste if you are looking for a lagerish style.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours amber with a small quickly fading head.
Nose shows grainy malt with a hint of spicy hops. Very light on.
Flavours show some grainy malt with slight sweetness before a very dry metallic bitter finish (POR?).
Body feels very watery, carbonation is pretty high.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2010 Light, golden coloured (looks much like a lager). Subtle citrus aroma and the flavour is once again citrus with a little hop and malt. Perfectly drinkable and certainly better than the average aussie beer.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s been 15 years since I had this: when young and poor I drank it all the time as it was the same price as VB and other truly awful beers. Then they priced it alongside decent Euro lagers and I stopped. Anyway: Bottle. Pours gold, modest white head. Some lacing. Mild aroma of malt, hay and citrus. Moderately sweet malts with decent bitterness for the style. Dry, vaguely citric finish with some salt. Still better than other Australian macros and still an OK beer on a hot night.
