3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light yellow, slightly cloudy. Timy white head. Nice skunky aroma. Awesomely balanced, bitter flavor. This beer does not suck. I guess it is amazing because I was expecting a suck beer, but actually this beer kicks ass. And if there is other crap on the shelf and you are not drinking this genius Tasmanian creation, all I can say is God help you.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle. Golden body with a white head. Aroma is malt and grain with a hint of citric hops. Flavor is light malt, apple fruity and a bit too sweet, almost like sweet cider kind of sweetness. Not much bitter, thin body and short finish. Fooled by the name.

Bottle @ Home
Tried this in 2008, but thought I’d rate it anyway. As far as pale lagers can go, this is certainly one of the best. Lacks the offensive metallic/chemical characteristics of cheaper brews, and is actually drinkable. The aroma and flavour lacks any real sophistication, and is fairly thin. Passable, though.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours gold with a small sudsy head.
Aroma is faint with grainy malt and subtle grassy hops. Grainy malt is quite dirty really.
Flavours include a fair bit of malt surprisingly, slight grainy, somewhat bready. Faint grassy hops also show, finishing with a restrained bitterness.
Too much carbonation. Much too much. Ridiculous.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pale golden with scant head. Aroma and flavors are dry, herbal with cilantro and grassy. Thin but nice. The flavors have some mild grapefruit in the finish that make this one worth drinking.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Just your standard lager. Grainy, grassy nose, basic flavours. Although this lager seems less sugary than other mainstream ones, and a little fruitier, too.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light yellow. The aroma is appley and maybe with a hint of bread. Bready taste. Light spicy hops - no bad balance for a macro. Sure it’s sweet and bland, but it’s balanced and drinkable.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle 375ml. Boring. Aroma has straw, and cardboard. Flavour is sweet, with some bitterness at the end. Palate is thin and watery, with a dry finish. Yellow colour, the head is frothy, but it doesn’t last.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
375ml bottle. Pours pale gold, two fingers of white head. Aroma is of mild sweet malts. Medium bodied and quite bubblegum sweet. A little skunky at the end. There’s not that much wrong with this, it’s just dull. I seem to recall this being quite a bit better, but there you go.
