bluevegie (3053) - 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

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2003
Empty, almost no flavour, bit of washing detergent thrown in. I havent yet had a good midstrength. Light and horrible.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2003
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.
