2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very good lager. My rating is low because lager isnít one of my favorite styles of beer. But if I had to choose a lager, this would be in my top 10. Nothing special, but nothing offensive either.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can 4.5% as XXXX Export Lager, said it was Brewed and Canned by South Australian Brewing Co. Picked up at Horiba, 240 yen. It pours your typical gold with a white head that is midway between fizz and foam. Some lacing and malty aroma with less sweetness in the aroma than I usually get from a macro-lager. Medium bodied and it has a somewhat slick mouthfeel. The taste is not so bad, malty, a bit sugary, some graininess but also a bit of soapiness. The sweetness grows as you drink it. Eh, more soda than beer like. Sub-par but not terrible.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a decent white frothy head that quickly disappears.
The aroma is malty and grainy, mild but still easy to pick up.
Thereís not much to the taste. Sweet beginning, balanced body and a bit more bitterness in the finish.
A decent lager.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from local Yamaya stoe. Slightly harsh grainy nose, honey, and crushed weeds. Pale straw color. Extract-like malty initial / thin stale sweetness in mid / final has sugary trickles and a light astringency (which does not belong there). Thin-medium body. A bit hard to drink.

Bland, tasteless, blah, I hope to never drink it again but sadly I know Iíll probably have too and that hurts.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can, 0.375l. Clear golden color with rocky white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy malt, grassy hops and some vegetable notes. Taste starts with light sweet grainy maltiness, follows by grassy and maybe really some fruity notes, but still with crisp and dry mouthfeel and a bit more bitter finish then Gold edition. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Slightly better thant Gold, but still far away from more than a thirst killer...

It has been a while since I last tasted this, but I remember it being a very mild beer, good for drinking on hot days. It has some malt flavor with a little touch of hop. It is not much, but probably great in the Outback.

Fra fat og boks mange ganger under studietiden i England, da Aussie-bÝlgen slo inn. "Letís suck a few tinneis, mate". Vi som trodde vi visste litt mer forlangte gjerne Castlemaine i stedet for Fosterís, men uten at det ble mer suksess av den grunn. Som alle andre lagere, dÝll.
