Not a good lager at all. Thing is you could have 6 of these for 3.50Strl so this became a stand by

Can. This is a really dreadful pale lager. Not one we mourned when it departed.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Used to be the only lager in my local village pub. Had with crisps and chocolate - was a good combination altogether. The lager is pretty standard though.

From the archives: Reminiscing about my summers spent in England, I remember that this was the cheapest available lager. You could by a case of XXXX for 10 quid. Simple pale lager. Go get Tesco cheapest lager - it was very similar. Was a really good value :-)

What the four X’s stand for might sum this lager up, pretty poor bog-standard stuff.

(Sampled in 2004).
Некрепкий лагер, сваренный по австралийской лицензии. В австралийской версии используются два типа местного хмеля – Pride Of Ringwood и Tasmanian Cluster. Не уверен насчет хмеля в лицензионной версии, но его привкус очень слабый, хотя и необычный.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Old rate. On tap in Lincolnshire, England. Pours a pale gold with a small white head. Aroma was stock macro lager and served too cold which might be a blessing in this case. Aroma was slightly adjuncty, grainy and a hoppy, medium dry finish. Not the worst pale lager Iґve had, but barely passable.

(canned) This actually was never that offensive . Its TV comercials relied on the sterotypical unsophsticated Australian life-style that some people in the UK like , and it made this popular for a time. A grainy ,creamy -sweet and lightly hopped beer is what you’ll get with XXXX.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This stuff was frighteningly poor. Weak as anything, too carbonated by far and the only real taste is its brutal aftertaste. Didn’t know it had been withdrawn from the UK market but won’t be missed. Horrible.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Had four cans of this some while back. Yellow with little head to speak of. Only alcoholic and slightly malty taste. Finish was very poor. An offensive lager. Why did I have four cans? It was cheap! I won’t be getting any cans of this again though. But fear not Queenslanders for I have yet to try XXXX in a bottle or better yet on tap and will hopefully be able to do this soon. For now though this was quite horrible.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught. Pours clear yellow, with quickly dissipating white head. Not much on either the nose or the palate, and insubstantial mouthfeel. Typical of bulk-produced fare.
