2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I tasted this out of a bottle that might have had some age on it - over a year old at least. Not much nose at all, if any. Little or no head retention. Reminded me of an American megabrew in that regard. Taste wasn't ay all unpleasant. I enjoyed it more the farther along we went. An Aussie lawnmower beer maybe? I did like the flavor.

Very malty and also some nice sweetness from this cloudy offering. Very nice overall with some fruity flavour and nice hops.
I found that it was hard to drink more than a couple at a time because I found it a tad heavy. Still, overall very nice.

Amber coloured. Lots of chunks in it. Quite thin and boring. Too much carbonation.

Nearly no head... Very fruity aroma... Pretty much a standard beer... Easy to enjoy on a hot summers day

Bloody lovely, If someone wants to know what Australian beer tastes like, give them one of these, but not too cold. Naturally cloudy with tasty yeast surprises at the bottom, it's hearty without the associated pain.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2003 bottle. Appearance of a chilled chardonnay; hazy, pale golden-yellow with some light green tinges. Medium sized white head. Smells of light, mildly sour hops, light lemon-orange, touch of ripe pear and a bit of yeast. Begins very dry and papery tasting. No sweetness whatsoever. I was beginning to give up, but as I let it warm, there was a chewy, fruity sweetness, slightly fuzzy on the palate. Flavor blossomed in to chewy dry barley flavor and sour/bitter hops. Medium-light bodied. Lively carbonation. Rated against other styles: not so good. Rated against other blondes: top tier.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber body with white, foamy head. Unimpressive citrus aroma. Drinkable with food but not anything I'd sit and savor alone.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2004 Honey colored fizzy body with vast quantities of dark particulates and a soft, clean white head. Aroma of tonic water, apples, and mild bready yeast. Really not very aromatic. Mild organic flavor and honey sweetness. Fizzy palate. A very delicate beer.

Cloudy golden hue with visible yeast particles and a foamy white head. Fruity nose, full of banana and pear with a malty background. The palate is lively and refreshing with a mild sweet maltiness and a clean, dry finish.

clear straw color (the yeast clouds it somewhat). inviting hoppy nose, and a nice fruity tang in the body. somewhat fizzy, and finishes a little dry. overall pretty good.
