Pours a thin yellow with a small but good looking head. Lots of saltiness in the aftertaste. Not bad.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2007
375 ml bottle - Clear gold with a thin white head. Medium body and carbonation. A bit of sweet malt showing through but really rather dry with a strong PoR hop character and medium bitterness. Quite different to the average Australian Pale Lager and quite enjoyable and refreshing.

Bottle. Pale yellow in colour with a frothy off-white head. Average carbonation and fair lacing. Moderately bitter and thin bodied. Sweet, slightly malty, with a crisp dry finish. A little watery but refreshing and a not bad pale lager.

Sparkling Pale Ale. Bottle. Yellow colour with a short but big nice white head. Aroma of hops and some sweet maltiness. Good fruity flavour with some sweetness. Dry aftertaste. A good pale ale though a little to watery.

(Can, thanks Gnoff) Pours golden/green. Malty aroma with light grassy/herb-ish hops and a tiny fruityness. Malty flavour with a light bitter, unclean finish. Small body. Grainy notes. Soapy aftertaste.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 23, 2006
In the can from a sampler pack at the Sydney Airport Duty free shop. Golden yellow in color with a white head that doesn’t stay around very long. Slightly malty compared to the light version, but still thin in body with little to attact your attention. Hops are only vaguely present.
