Poured a mid-amber with a decent head. Aroma was slightly sweet with malts predominating. Taste was primarily malty upfront with slight twinge of grains with a mild malt finish. Mouth was decent/acceptable. Overall, this brew was not as bad as I had anticipated being brewed by a macro-brewer (i.e. Miller).

Pours dark amber with a thick foamy head. Smells kinda sweet. Taste is like cheap malt and grass.

Big can in US, FL April 2012. Simple pale lager, rather flat and good with pizza. What else do you want after driving 400 miles? (note: no point in drinking sophisticated beers when you are tired)

It pours amber with a lot of foamy head. The aroma is a little better than your average corn based beer. So is the flavor. There is a slightly bready quality. This beer is generally better than I expected it to be. My curiosity is satisfied.

I'll admit I like picking this up time to time. $2.15 for a big oil can, only reason I get it. Very little aroma or taste, can says "Ale with Carmel color added". T think that says it all. It is not a good beer but I like the novelty of it so I get one occasionally. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ContemplateBeer (1436) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 8, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Aroma: Wet cardboard, lightly grassy, salvage store bread. Appearance: Actually looks nice enough; nearly transparent copper body with a thick tan head. Flavor: Pretty sweet and watery; some light caramel or maybe bread; finishes with a slightly grassy tang. Brings the apple juice as it warms. Palate: Light body, thick texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: Now I know what a bad English Pale Ale mixed with a Malt Liquor tastes like. Not utterly deplorable.

Doesnít rock my world but has a nice sweet aftertaste. Itís much better than the reviewers give it credit for.

Can: Poured an amber in color with a white foamy head. Sweet grassy nose. Taste is sweet malt and grain.

Not bad for a mass produced beer. Taste is mostly of cheap grain, a decent amount bitterness a little too sour. Grain aftertaste and lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

This pours a dark amber color with a slight beige head. There is a slightly bitter/yeasty aroma. The taste is malty with a slightly bitter finish. The body was pretty average but the overall taste was pretty good given the rating

Big ass can. Darker clear copper. Thick foamy heads. Not much malt. Not too much to this, other than a cheap corn taste. Not very good. Címon Australia, I expect more from you.
