Not that great, not that bad. The first time I tasted it I was told it was somewhat like a Fosters. I would put it on the same level as Foster’s but it tastes more like a staple European lager with not much aroma like Maartens or Stella Artois.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 Draft at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a large creamy head. Good head retention. Aroma of pale malts and grassy hops. The taste is pale malts, grassy hops, green apple. Medium bodied. 200th pale lager.

Beerathon (1284) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2013
This beer is very much like any of the macro lagers out there. Nothing distinct about it.

BeerandBlues2 (10074) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Tap. Pours clear dark gold with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is Pils and grain malt with corn notes and light spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and medium bitterness, and a clean lager character with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Pale gold pour with off-white head. Nose was hopcitrus and some tart fruit, with a flavor of crisp lemongrassy grainy pale malt and hoppy fruitiness.

anders37 (17536) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2011
Draft @ the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty grainy aroma with weak hoppy hints. Fruity malty grainy flavor. Has a sweetish malty fruity grainy finish.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Malty, funky vanillaish flavor. A little grassy on the aroma. Very standard pale ale looking.

arventresca (566) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Golden. Taste is bitter. Nothing really stands out in this brew. But I do give them props for trying an Australian style beer.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2009
a touch darker than the kolsch... pale golden with a tiny bit of sluggish lacing. sweet grainy aroma with hints of diacetyl. the palate is a touch sweet with some grassiness, grain and a slightly bittered finish. diacetyl doesn’t really show up here oddly. light bodied, crisp, meh. 5/3/5/3/9/2.5

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 Draft at the brewpub. Australian-style Lager. Mildly sweet, with a touch of nuttiness. Nothing extraordinary, relatively balanced. A little sourness in the finish. Decent session beer, nothing more.
