I was actually surprised by this one. I figured it would be Australian for wallabee piss but shone above fosters other beers. Not very bitter, but not bad. Looks really good with a nice head, goes down easy but doesn’t leave much of a lasting impression.

This medium-bodied ale pours with a deep honey color and produces a thick pillowy head that will lace up your glass. It features a soft, fruity nose with some hop aroma. Despite its name, this ale is not very bitter. There is a little initial fruit sweetness in the mouth, and the beer finishes to a somewhat dry, bitter finish. I found this beer to be quite delicious, and I definitely enjoy this Special Bitter ale and find it to be a superior beverage when compared to the blue-label Foster’s Lager. Compare in flavor to Bass Pale Ale, only think of something a little less fruity and a little more bitter.

They have stoped making this beer, what a loss to the world of beer.

An easy to drink beer with a nice head. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have as much flavor as I would like.

Not a bad ale from down under as the malt was kept in check by the bitterness. It did seem a little overcarbonated and that played games with its smoothness.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2002
Re-Rate 01/20/02: Pours a nice deep amber, generous head and nice lace. Nose is malt, hints of citrus?, start is malt, the middle is light to medium, and the finish is nicely hopped, acidic and moderate to high carbonation. Clean and fresh, personally, I kind of like this beer, no not a world beater, but good none the less.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2003 amber with a pretty big head that lasts. There's nothing really special about it and its not bitter either. But its not bad either
