Empty, almost no flavour, bit of washing detergent thrown in. I havent yet had a good midstrength. Light and horrible.

A hint of hop aroma. Beer pours a nice golden colour, carbonation is almost non-existent, and there is no head. There is a hint of hop flavour, and the use of sugar in the brew shows through quite strongly with a slightly metallic, slightly sweet taste. Very thin on the palate, and thoroughly unsatisfying. Though it is reasonably priced, I would rather spend twice as much for a beer that i will enjoy.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2003
Poured clear golden with medium rocky off white head. Good retention and lacing. Overcarbonated though. Aroma of stale hops, and burning metal. Bit of corn there too. Thin watery mouthfeel. Stale bitter start with a bit of corn sugar sweetness. An even staler bitter finish. Disguisting astringent aftertaste with traces of metal. "Looks alright, tastes shit".

It´s probably better than water when you get stuck in a desert, but to classify it as a beer is a bit difficult.

For some reason its almost better than normal XXXX. Its easy to drink anyway but still could have a bit more flavour.

This beer has a light yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a light body.

Winchester (75) - Struggle Town NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2003 A nice drop. Goes down very well on hot tropical days, sitting on the deck, over looking the pool. But I dont live in Queensland, and I dont have a pool.

farmboy (218) - Barwon Heads, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2003 Really, I had to actually check the alcohol volume to see for myself that this was really beer. I still didn't believe the label when it read 3.5%. I drank ¾ of the bottle before I'd had my intelligence insulted enough. This beer did not deserve to be finished.
