1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
- Iíve cleaned up the review I had that was filled with curses and negativity...so I removed the cursing.
Iíve yet to have a bottle of this stuff that didnít pour out a bunch of unwanted moldy looking floaties. Yellow gold beer with a good rocky white cap, messy lacing and decent retention. The smell smells. Only on occasion has my beer not stunk like the entrance to Ratís Nest Cave near Canmore. The last time was so horrid that I downed it in one shot just to be rid of it. Iíve added bready malts to a long list of beer insults that Iíve removed (words like eye watering, paint, pungent brutal... ect.... oops). The taste is up and down. The hop flavour doesnít work for me at all. Theres also a good amount of old grass and some bready malts. Mouth feel was less than acceptable with chemicals and persistant bad breath. Highly overpriced ass beer.

Had this one during my holiday in Australia april/may 2009. Golden colored brew. Sweet aroma. Sweet, grainy, malty, soft flavour, crisp finish, a bit too sweet.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a reasonable beer, pale gold and well-carbonated, with a large head. However, it is not as flavoursome as other quality Australian beers, and is not quite worth the price.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very simple appearance. A golden yellow colour with a medium pure white head which dissipates. Light to medium carbonation. The aroma is of medium hops. Overall a great beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
A classy European style lager. Proves that the oldest brewery in Australia is still one of the best.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Pours a clear golden with a white head. Lightly sweet malt aroma with a whiff of aroma hops. Medium body with sweet malts and a touch of cardboard. Lightly hoppy finish. Getting a bit nostalgic here as this was my favourite brew when I visited Tasmania in 1988. But either my palate or the beer has changed since then - probably both. 210108
