Stubby. Orange gold with a white head that lasts OK. Grainy aroma with weeds. Watery. Slightly sweet, grainy, husky, dry and weedy at the slightly bitter end. Watered down Melbourne Bitter with slightly more prominent bitterness. Thereís a bit of this about in Melbourne and it has date stamps and everything, so maybe seeing this in better nick than some other things. Itís OK.

Love it already. Stumpy and stout bottle voids unnecessary capsizing and breakages; the labels archaic and reminiscent of some of Australiaís most infamous lagers, and the term bitter leads me to believe there may be a little Aussie Pride in there too. So, without further ado, into a tulip it goes. Big gust of CO2 emanates forth as the cap comes off. Aroma is softly metallic and briny but very much dominated by notes of grass and chaff. It settles as one hell of a sexy beast. A radiant deep gold with minute and intermittent carbonation. Head wanes slowly but retains as a rocky white pad that daubs the glass well. Unexpectedly malty and sweet on the palate. Body is medium light with moderate carbonation. Chilled it is clean and crisp in the finish but cracks start to show as it warms. Becomes gammy and sweet with an astringency that is hard to deny. Chilled though it is, well, the beer I expected it to be. Low bitterness with just a hint of peppery spice and fresh mown grass. Not much here but it minces with the best of the lawn-mower beers. Ok! (37,5cL, BB 01/07/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Drank from bottle, it is slightly sweet. Slightly wheaty grainy aroma taste is similar to the smell. Mediocre.

KeefOz (1072) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2014
Poured a clear golden amber colour with 5mm of white foam that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation high and medium. Aroma typical; lager - malt and grain; no obvious hops. Taste initially sweet malt then has a distinct tangy possibly chemical bitterness. Light body. Crisp, light refreshing (if cold) with a bit of a tangy bitterness lingering on the finish. Best drank cold.

varanid99 (638) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2014
Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Malty aroma, a little bit of metal. Taste is malt, corn, not really mych in the way of bitterness. Fairly typical bland lager, not great but not the worst

375 ml bottle. Pours a clear, pale gold with a medium white head. Faint malt aroma. Sweet flavour of malt with a hint of fruit and a mildly bitter finish. Light body with watery texture and soft carbonation.

Nuffield (3761) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Surprised by this beer. Cool bottle, imprinted with "this bottle always remains the property of Carlton" or something like that. I was expecting a British bitter but yes, it is a pale lager. Yellow pour, small white head. Musty, paper mulch nose, a light metallic edge to the flavor, and a big fizz in the mouth. Not very good. Bottle brought back from Fiji by a friend.

DeanF (1746) - Nunavut, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Breaking up my intense reviews of huge-alcohol barley wines, Iíve got this weird import pale lager found somehow in Edmonton. Comes in a stubby bottle. Pours with a clea golden body with minimal carbonation and can get decent head if coaxed the proper way. Aroma is tin and stale cardboard like a million other nameless pale lagers the world over. Flavour is heavy breadiness, a solid boring lager flavour with a dry finish. It knows what it is at least, and it isnít especially good. But it could be worse, which is about the best you can say for it.
