For a pale lager this is not bad at all. Have to admit the current ratings appear to be from people who don’t like this kind of beer in the first place. Difficult to come out top trumps for a summer pale lager if your a critic’s a stout drinker. That said however, have to agree with them in regards to the first few batches of this Micro Brewery beer, as it was a little weak with not much flavour. Am assuming its taken them a few attempts to get this right, which is understandable not being a major manufacturer. Tried this beer a recently during a Bushfire Appeal Event which these guys donated the beer for. Have to say, it went down very well and the tastes certainly has more of the flavours they speak off, not to mention didn’t feel bloated after having a few.... well, maybe more than a few.

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.

From a bottle. Pours a deep clear amber, tiny lasting head, rich hop and malt flavours.

Pyobon (977) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2010
Bottle. Clear straw, very little head. Pleasant but subtle aroma - floral perhaps with a hint of vanilla. Light body and bright carbonation. The flavour is subtle, balanced and pleasant - slight fruity tang balanced with some light malty sweetness with a hint of bitterness in the finish. A pleasant lager, but bland.

Shambles (35) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2009
In my research i have discovered that this easy drinking lager is brewed by an ex fosters master brewer up in Northern Victoria (Mildura). Amarillo hops give off a great fruity aroma and well balanced with the saarz. There is a slight "Corney cheap" - Stew41, there but nowhere near overpowering as some, nice dry, crisp finish, clean easy drinking for summer, i would drink this over pure blonde any day. Great six pack purchase.

What first hits is the lovely aroma from bottle smell. Doesn’t much head at all. Very much on front of tongue. No after-taste. Be good to drink on very hot afternoons. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bif (1563) - 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.
