Color - really golden - clean , clear. Foam - white, medium-grained , medium profusion , but not very stable . Although sticky to the walls of the glass. Fragrance - fun, fruity-floral , sweet . Carbonation moderate , below average . Taste - pale, dry, sharp bitterness immediately (coarse , uninteresting ) in the finish catches light sweetness generally flat taste, not very interesting . If we compare with the Russian beer - then Australian sample favorably clean nonacidic taste. However , it is quite far from the classical ( German , Czech ) lagers . Small containers ( 0,375 ) - it is even a plus. Because barely finished his bank - the last sips the taste already tired .

So, so bad, it’s bland and dreadful, only to be drunk when there is absolutely nothing else on offer.

Kita (1000) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 21, 2014
Can, 0.375l. Clear golden color with small frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy malt, hay and vegetables. Plain lager taste with grainy maltiness, vegetable following, crisp and dry mouthfeel with light bitter. finish. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Consumed in the red centre of Australia...

God awful shit, tastes like cats piss. Only drinkable when its stinking hot and there isn’t anything else, also midstrength

This is easily the worst beer i have ever tried. i mean... this isnt even beer. its mouldy yeast water found in the drainholes of pubs. How queenslanders pride themselves on this rubbish is beyond me. I personally believe that this shouldn’t even be classed as beer, class it as gullible fools water or something. disgustingly horrible. i only wish i could give this beer a 0.

Something wrong with this beer for me. I like the taste of almost any other beer in the World more than this but I’ve no idea why. Apologies for not having the skills to know why. The best I can say is that Its pretty clean and doesn’t hurt but it could explain why Australians are giving up on beer and switching to wine.

Bottle. I'll drink it if it's ice cold and I'm in the sun watching cricket. Otherwise it tastes like watered down cats pee.

Sweet malty and extremely thin, not a great pale lager at all. Lacking the body a higher ABV pale lager provides.
