Pours straw yellow with a foamy white head. A little citrus on the nose, mostly malt sweetness. Not much going on really. There’s a corn/adjunct flavour that comes through noticeably, which is off-putting. The amarillo saves this slightly, but I wouldn’t seek it out again.

Nice blend of malt and hop aromas. Clear golden colour with excellent head. Nice malty flavour with hops in the finish. Medium to heavy body with low carbonation.

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2014
I don’t know how they do it, but this tastes more like adjuncts than anything else. Plus that sickening sweetness - don’t like it at all. Aroma’s a bit funky. taste is sweet corn/grain- no malt or hop. Nothing out right bad is about the only "good" thing I can say.

KeefOz (966) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2013
Poured a clear amber colour with a three-finger white foamy head that diminished fairly quickly and left a bit of sudsy lacing. High carbonation as seen by lots of small to medium bubbles forming trails. Aroma of sweet citrus malt and musty grain. Taste of sweet malt and normal grain flavours with no bitterness. Light body. Crisp, light, dry with a sweet finish. Much like a macro-brewed lager. Average.

Bif (1559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Pours a golden color with a thick head that fades slowly to bits of lacing. Mild aroma of some citrus malt sweetness and grain. Fairly bland taste of malt sweetness and grain,. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and smooth, not a lot here. Non-offensive Pale Lager on and ocean of lager beers.

jameslol (1) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2013 does not count
i feel like this is a hard beer to rate - i signed up to this site to give it a go. if you’re sitting around being discerning and taking in all the flavours of a beer, you’re likely to be a bit underwhelmed with this one. it’s not meant for that. to me, it’s basically the boutique version of an australian bitter. except with a bit less of the harsh bitter, and just a hint of hop/wheat. drink it very cold. also i don’t think it wants to be poured in to a glass - it tasted a bit flat and got warm too quick when i did that.
