From a 375ml can. Bought it by mistake at a festival, surprisingly OK for a light, even from a can which is a good sign. Quite smooth and with a pleasant aftertaste it’s the best light I’ve had.

Lacks flavour, if you like the taste of water then you will like this beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 0.375l. Clear deep golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy malt, grass and notes of citrus. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt, but still bland, following is fresh grainy and grassy, mouthfeel is crisp and dry, while finish is very light bitter. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Not that bad for low alcohol macro beer...

OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003
For a light macro beer it does quite well, not that that says anything at all. Probably a touch more malt and hop character than say Hahn, but you’re working with next to nothing there. But seriously, why?

Pretty crap this one.

Clear golden color, white head. Malty, bland taste. Weak, malty aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel, low bitterness. Weak malty scent.
Hmm, guess I liked it equally little draught at the brewery as on bottle...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
375ml bottle. Pours a deep golden amber colour, very thin white head that dissipates away and aroma of malt & grain. Taste is malt with some light grassy earthy bitterness. Watery mouth feel, light bodied, high carbonation. OK considering the low ABV.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A quick search of Aussie macro’s I’d yet to try revealed this bothersome gem I remember seeing middle-aged men down with great haste when given the task of being designated driver. My youth wasted on full strength lagers too afraid to be seen grasping a ’light’ anywhere other than in the confines of one’s own kitchen. So, with my man-card revoked here goes. Looks good in its own glass. Medium gold, much deeper than expected with a lasting, satiny sheened pad of white atop. Aroma of fresh mown grass, kelp, confectioner’s sugar and hay. Gassy, highly carbonated and very light in body. Moderate, grassy and metallic bitterness though it finishes short and crisp. A touch of toasted malt, bready and just a little sweet gives it something other light beers lack in. Clean as a whistle aside the PofR hopping. Balanced and sessionable once the carbonation drops down. I can’t really fault this aside its apparent effeminacy. Not bad!! (375mL, BB 28/10/13, Thirsty Camel Butler)

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Bright golden body with a nice and solid head. Settled down slowly, and left a thin but attractive lacing down the glass.
Aroma: A waft of malt sweetness, and hints of generic hops. A little bit of ’tonic water smell’ as well.
Taste: Slightly more malty and smooth than most macro lagers, although still left wanting. Some slight grain character, with low bitterness, and noticeable hops.
Mouthfeel: High carbonation, and with a bit fuller body than expected from a light beer.
Drinkability: Definitely one of the better macro light beers (not that hard)and was much more complex than I was expecting. Let down by typical macro faults, however.
