Guam SwillFest 2004: pours a clear yellow with a smallish white head.Light hop aroma with a little fruit. Taste is mildly fruity with the apple (or grape) I have come to expect in Australian lagers. Finish is slightly cardboardish with more hints of apple. Refreshing if nothing else.

Not very good. I forgot where I had this, but it has a pale golden color. Soft, kind of skunky, and some hops. Crisp taste, but soapy. Kind of like Bud Light. Not that great of a beer.

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2004
Clear golden/orange colour with a medium sized medium lasting white head. Some soft bitterness, a little soapy, some shortbread biscuit taste and also some good lacing. Easy enough to drink and very similar to the full strength version.

Not a very nice drop. I was left wondering if I was better to have a softdrink. It was watery, very metalic after taste, reminded me of a Bud!

Golden color with a white head. The taste is watery with malty notes and a slight hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Another Queeensland attempt at mid-strength beers as opposed to the <3% brews in the southern states. Having said that it still tastes like a mid-strength beer which means it is never going to be good.

watered down cheap lager, why would you bother really? if you cant drink a decent beer why subject yourself to drinking this shite just because it's midstrength?

Give me a midstrength that I would actually buy again, give me a nice premo ligyt over this soapy average brew. Although I do like the ads. cheers

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