2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Once undisputed king of beers here in Queensland it is rarely promoted nowadays, Lion Nathan seem to be intent on replacing it with Toohey’s New. Over the last 5 years the flood of imported and ’licenced’ brands such as Stella Artois, Heineken, Becks and Bavaria has eaten into the XXXX market. It is no longer available on tap in North Queensland although the XXXX Gold mid strength brand is still being promoted heavily.

Pot at Breakfast Creek. Vague sweet aroma. Highly carbonated, like soft drink! Sharp metallic taste, slightly bitter aftertaste. Acceptable if served ice cold.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
lekki, słodowo biszkoptowy zapach z niewielką sugestią ziół. całkiem przyjemny. złoty, przejrzysty kolor, piana skąpa ale dość trwała. w smaku przypomina bittera, półpełny, biszkoptowy z wyraźną, ziołową, ale nie mocną goryczką. wysycenie średnie. dość przyjemne piwko na upał.

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.
There’s 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 I’ll 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...
