Oh boy where does one start? It’s like this, take a crappy pale lager, halve the strength, halve the flavour and you’ll find you’re making love in a canoe.

Rated from memory, drank in the Summer of 2003 in Sydney -- Poured from a pitcher into a pint glass. Very pretty golden beer, foamy white head. Really reminded me of a sweeter version of Coors Light.

Keg - Poured a clear, effervescent golden colour with a fluffy lasting, lacing one-finger white head. Pretty non-descript across the board with very subtle, inoffensive grain, light malts and metallic characters. Light in body, medium carbonation and a soft, short-length bitterness in the finish that’s barely there.

Can on the flight to Wellington. Golden with a white head. Grainy aroma with light hops. Similar flavor, though it is quite muted. No finish to speak of.

fletchfighters (1133) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2014
375 ML bottle at the Qantas club in Melbourne Clear yellow straw color. White ring of lacing. Some carbonation bubbles Nose is....... Appalling. Corn, cream of corn, stewed lettuce, stewed corn and cabbage. Highly metallic. Taste is equally bad. Corn, metal, and stewed vegetables. Light and flavorless really. Medium carbonation and light feel. Unmemorable beer.

kustie (211) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle at Aussie Bar. Pale color, small head. Minimal aroma. Taste is refreshing but thin. Bulk.

gyllenbock (5017) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle in Brisbane. Clear golden with a medium white head. Thin with cardboard, some grass and butter. Boring and not a fun one to drink.

tsurkan_sergey (42) - Novosibirsk, RUSSIA - APR 14, 2014
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.
