2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap an the Grand hotel in Bowral. Arrived a pale golden yellow, with a dense frothy head which was average lasting. Aroma was of lemon, lime, hints of honey and light grain notes in the back. Flavor was a fair bitter for a pale larger, with some sweet honey, light lemon citrus and some faint grassy hops. Light bodied with a watery texture and short crisp finish.

Light mainstream lager with lime and corn meal. Refreshing and smooth, but little else.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bland looking, pale golden body with an ordinary white head. Medium hop aroma, average taste that is not too sweet and just enough saaz hops to make it somewhat drinkable.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An unexceptional but reasanbly drinkable beer that is more of a pils than a Pale Lager for me.
It is a bit one dimensional and needs a malt boost to hype it up

reasonable beer, the aroma is a bit ho hum with some straw/cardboard, but the appearance and flavors are quite good and as well. The upfront is a bit sweet, but finishes with good bitterness. Definately passes as a summer session lager.

Bottle. A pleasant enough drop, if perhaps a tad cordial-like in nature. It’s no Zatec, but the character of the hops comes through. Better than the usual Australian attempts at pilsener.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Fairly ordinary beer. A clumsy mismatch of crappy cheap malts with buttery sweetness with only marginally better hop finish. At least there’s some faint spiceness to finish but has a muted, cardboard-lke staleness as well. Pass.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, at the Australian Hotel, Sydney Australia.
Bright golden larger, with an energetic head. Sharp bitter flavour, with a snappiness about it. Moderate length on the palate. Just one of the several thousand beers had with the old-man and younger bro. April 2006.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with foamy white head. Nice mild malt aroma slight hoppiness . Mouth feel is lively, lots of carbonation. Flavor is fresh with good overtones of sweetness. Lingering bitterness and slightly sour aftertaste. Tastes like a beer that a microbrewery might make in an effort to appeal to a larger market. Overall, quite good for the style, so I’ll give it a high rating. A great lager/pilsner for everyday drinking.
