Not a very popular beer, and I can see why. Unremarkable is an understatement.

Pours typical gold colour of xxxx brew good carbonation fair head too.Aroma slightly weaker on hops and more thin grain aroma.Flavour is thin and that low carbohydrate flavour,of diet drinks crisp it,s not dry it is and an annoying taste.

How come I’d never seen this before? Bought from local bottle shop expecting the worse, but was not as bad as I would have thought. Poured the usual dire piss yellow with no head. Corny sweet and nasty taste. Drink cold.. very cold.

Bright gold colour with big white head. Lots of corn, everywhere, on the nose in the taste. Typical Queensland recycled water that numbs the tounge!!

Mullet’s late night-Lane Cove-fire sale-clear backpack space for the plane-tasting, with sushi: Very grassy aroma, perhaps even some hop!! Diacetyl, double cream and fresh caramel. Tiny bit of malt flavour, orange cordial with a light metallic bitterness. Surprising creamy mouthfeel. Good swill! And I’d never even heard of it before!

Great, I get to be the 10th reviewer so it gains a percentile. Not that it will be much good mind you, but anyway......Being a DL means that it is thin and dry, with poor hop aroma, flavour and balance. This stands for Don't Like.

Ugh! Why do they bother. Lifeless beer with no flavour and very dull look. Quite a disappointment really.

dry and flavourless at first, maybe slightly grainy, then you get hit with simultaneous bitterness and nasty australian lager chemicals. at least it's got some bitterness.
