Stats off ok while ice cold. Poured to a goldenish colour with almost no smell at all. Had a respectable frothy head and decent lacing that stuck around. Mild palate and a sweetish taste with little bitterness. Nothing great, but not terrible as an aussie mid strength.

Starts of great. Ends tolerable. Is at its best while ice cold. Mild palate feel that will hang around. Sweetish taste with very slight bitterness. Not a great beer, but bad as a mid strength either.

It is one of the most popular beer in Australia. When I went there I drank sometimes this one with the hot sun of Brisbane and region. It is a clasical lager, yellow body, average carbonation, white foam, the taste is watery, malty, few hop. A beer when you are thirsty.

Typical lager served in Australia, not a lot of flavor, good or bad. Goes down smooth if youíre thirsty, but thatís about it.

I ordered a sunday roast and they gave me 4 of those fuckers. Oh Well Better rate them. Golden, white head. No aroma. Hayish malt, medium light body, light sticky on the palate, a hint cheap hops in the finish. Uninspired macro swill.

A truly satisfying beer experience. From the first sip to the last, this is a true-blue thirst quencher. Itís got none of that queer hop flavours. Just straight up good beer. Best served cold as the arctic on a hot summer day between the Barbie and a couple-a-babes.

(Can) Clear golden yellow with big white head. Aroma has light malt and hints of grassy hops. Light bodied and fizzy. A tart foretaste has some sugary hints to balance, which quickly collapsed to a watery mid-palate and finish. Bad but drinkable if desperate. (Tasted on airplane - lower pressure may affect taste and perception of carbonation)

On tap at XXXX Alehouse, Brisbane on 9th September 2015. Clear gold with off white head and lacing. Lightly hoppy aroma. Grassy and herby in-mouth by small measure with cooked veg. Lemon citrus kick and finish. Light-bodied with a zingy mouthfeel. Was pleasantly surprised, although what beer isnít at its best at the brewhouse?

Made me feel sick after a few of them. Itís more or less on par with goon as far as wine is concerned.
