2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Why, oh why would you want to brew something that was similar to all the other pale lagers out there. Not a bogan beer thats for sure because of the price, maybe a bojan euro style! anyway below average!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On draught @ The Norfolk Hotel, Fremantle.
Medium gold and just shy of bright with limited effervescence and a steadfast, silky compact crown of white. Good lacework is left and the head adds a little creaminess to the texture. Bready, doughy nose with a hint of lemon, rust and grassy hops. Yeasty, bready palate that is soapy in the tail. A continuation of the nose. Bland and flaccid; very Australian macro in its make-up. Lacking the clean lines of a German or Czech lager. I concur on the lasting head part though - Heading liquid perhaps!?

Tap. It’s funny that I can compare this, a fresh draft, to an import bottle of German beer later in the night and this tastes weak, macro and indistinguishable from most pale lagers. For shame Burleigh, for shame.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: Pours a bright gold with a medium white fleeting head. Malty grassy-hop nose. Light malty citrusy body, lightly carbonated with a good level of bitterness. Clean hoppy finish. Pretty good, wish it was on tap more often. Great match with prawns by the way.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with a thin head. Aroma of sweet malt, grass and light citrus notes. The flavour is biscuit malt and citrus - lemon particularly.Soft carbonation with a clean and crisp mouthfeel. Light hoppy finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Pale and dull gold in colour with barely a head of bubbles that skim over the top of the beer before vanishing. Malty, earthy aroma with a fresh and clean feel in the mouth and mild bitterness level. Mild flavour that doesn’t really grab you.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow beer with a loose dissipating white head. Lemony citrus notes on the the nose. Palate is tart and thickish with flavours of lemons and grainy sweet malts. Crisp refreshing dry bitter finish. Goes down easily. Substantially exceeded expectations.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was very relieved when I first tried this beer to find that it wasn’t a bland macro style lager. Instead it is a lager with appropriate bready malt flavours and a lovely refreshing smack of bitterness. Went down an absolute treat with some fish and chips by the water. One of the best Aussie made German lagers that I have ever had.
