DuffMan (8000) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
Pale golden, clear, medium head. I wouldn’t go so far as calling this "foul", but it is pretty boring. Sweet malt is really all you get for flavour (the same as all corn-adjunct, over-processed pale lagers on the market). I wouldn’t choose to drink it again if an alternative were available, but I wouldn’t turn it down if the beerfridge was empty on a Friday night. This is my standard review for all "two-star-or-less" piss.

dial90 (5) - CARLISLE, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2005 does not count
Very pale color and heavily carbonated with large bubbles, reminescent of soda water. Aroma so light it is difficult to detect. Virtually no head retention. Taste is slightly sugary reminiscent of sweet soda with little hop bitternes. Mouthfeel is like drinking soda water. Little aftertaste. This beer leaves you wondering if you would be better off drinking soda water. and represents a new low reached by the major Australian breweries.

gondorspit (4) - California, USA - DEC 15, 2004 does not count
An imminiently drinkable if somewhat bland macrobrew. As stated, the head dissapates rapidly and it is best to be consumed quickly as it then rapidly heads to flat. It is a light beer, very refreshing, a slightly bitter aftertaste, nothing to travel in search of.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2004
It’s drinkable, but is one of those beers that you want to drink as cold as possible to mute any questionable flavors. Has a distinct grainy flavor that I can’t quite pin down, but it definitely reminds me of breakfast cereal. Only the slightest bitterness.

jgb9348 (5098) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Bright golden coloured body, similar to the colours on the label with a very fast dying white head. Aroma of corn, light malt and nothing else exciting. Light to Medium-bodied; Macrobrew flavour with not good malt, no hops and some gross corn flavours. Aftertaste has just plain malt tastes with some light sugars roaming in the palate. Overall, not a great beer, but nice to try while in Australia! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle in Melbourne, Australia.

RichardGretton (4424) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2004
Pale looking standard lager with a light musty aroma and a mildly dry flavour. Overall quite a plain lager.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUL 24, 2004
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.

haddon90 (1561) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - JUN 15, 2004
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 (3067) - 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.
