1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
It’s just no good. Did taste a bit better out of the tin in Tasie, that probably had something to do with the fact that we hadn’t had a beer in 24 hours. Just weak and dull. Why do most Aussie beers try and make themselves so boring? Its like them are not trying to offend anyone. This beer is a good case in point.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewery. Blonde, thin head. A bit cidery/industrial there’s a little bit of body, but overall it’s a fancy pale lager/ golden ale sort of thing that lets me down a bit.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Cascade Vistors centre. Dark golden with minimal head. A little richer than their lagers, but not much. Hops are in there but not super-prominent. it is a very old recipe, so perhaps it lacks the structure of contemporary pales, but it was still pretty decent.

Bottle. Acidic smell, that doesn’t show on the taste. A clean, Lager like ale, with some more maltiness. Nothing interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tapped out clear blonde Amber. 6°SRM.
Nose has some clean beery aromas. Lager like in the nose with pale malt and some cider sourness.
Mouthfeel is watery. Some sourness in the palate that is cidery, this vanishes after a brief time almost abruptly and the the medium finish.
Finish is malt sweet and nicely drawn out medium balanced with some thin hoppy herbaceousness.
Very much like a lager. Actually is a lager.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
I rather liked this. For a mainstream beer this has a gorgeous golden colour and white head, an aroma of gooseberry and grapefruit hoppiness that comes through well in the flavour. This is a beer I could happily reach for several times.

375ml bottle into glass. Nose is acidic, almost vegetal. Pale amber colour with two finger white head. Tiny carbonation. Nice mineral water character. Clean light-bodied beer with metallic hop finish. Those CUB cooked vegetables are lurking in the background. Not a pale ale.

From bottle in Sydney. Got mislead by the name, was expecting some lightly aromatic hops as in a pale ale, but got instead a decent lager for refreshment. My mistake

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2015 Comes in a 375ml bottle, not much aroma, crisp and fresh compared to most mainstream aussie macro lager but not much good compared to something decent coz it has some funkiness and mineral water compromise

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Clear pale golden with short-lived thin head. Not much aroma: hints of damp cardboard, iron and maybe stone-fruit. Light body, rather fizzy. Unusual taste, but not unpleasant, quite crisp and uncomplicated. There’s a nice balance of fruitiness and subtle sweetness and some crisp but slightly metallic bitterness in the finish. I didn’t enjoy the first taste, but then it started to grow on me, however after a while it seemed rather artificial. Drinkable, refreshing, but a bit odd.
