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.

Bottled. Golden body with a foaming crusty white head. Easily drunk with more hops then the other beers. Seem to remember it being decent but I drink about a million beers in Sydney in Melbourne these past two weeks an may have got it wrong.

The less said about this the better. Just another pale lager in a market that is saturated. At least the others have the decency to actually call themselves lager. Sort of a dry and dusty aroma that reminds me of scotch, and that’s not a good thing as I’m not a fan of it. Lots of veggie on the taste and metallic POR bitterness. Not the worst pale lager out there, but in a style of few decents beers that isn’t really a big rap. Drink for a rate, preferably shared with others.

This offering from Cascade poured a pale yellow with a soft bubbly head. The nose is weak, not much going on, soft hop smells are followed by a sour veggie presence. The taste is pungent, harsh bitterness that dominats with a processed sugar sweetness that finishes again harsh from the high carbonation.

Bottle, courtesy of my sis. Light gold and clear pour, lingering small head. Smells lightly malty, and a bit sulfury to me - my first thought was they were using German Kolsch yeast. Light and clean, with a touch of a bitter finish. My bottle reminded me more of a Kolsch than a regular lager.
