A thirst quenching lager with origins from the Pilsener style. Brewed specifically for the Australian palate and the great Aussie BBQ. Crisp, refreshing and surprisingly full bodied light beer. Medal winner in 2012 at the Australian International Beer Awards.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2010
Tap at the White Horse Pub, London. Pours a mostly clear yellow with a fizzy, white head. Faint aroma of malt and grass. Lightly sweet with almost very little bitterness. Light in bodied with fine, fizzy carbonation. Finishes has light sugar and barely perceptible, grassy hops. Overall a bit thin, even for a "light" beer. Unimpressive.

bottle, thanks to my mum’s students for bringing the grand ridge gift pack around, i didn’t realise there would be one in there i hadn’t tried. anyways, simple pale golden; lightly grassy aroma; some soggy, slightly sweaty cereals; not awful for a light beer

mkel07 (5159) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2010
330ml bottle. Very hazy and absolutely no head at all. Musty amber colour that looks terrible. Citrusy aromas struggle through and the flavour really struggles as well. Barely drinkable, nothing almighty about this one.

hawthorne00 (3506) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2011
Bottle. Clear orange with a decent white head. Aroma of butterscotch, honey and lemon. Taste is quite fruity with apricot and pineapple. The flavours in the aroma are there too. Slight bitter finish. First sip is pretty convincingly beery and it’s not as watery as expected. One is more than plenty, but this OK for what it is.

ALLOVATE (2895) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2011
Had this bottle for about a year just lying about, and for a beer of such meagre strength I hope it held up.
A soppy, loose, bubbly off-white crown forms atop its dull and hazy medium gold body. Head is mostly lasting. Very bready, yeasty, sourdough nose with underlying pineapple candy fizz-whizz. Predominantly hoppy palate, mild showing of grain, mid-palate is bready and yeasty like the nose but is drowned out by some very duty, herbal and chewy hops. Pinenut and camphor swallow and linger, good bitterness on and in the swallow with some floury, sourdough and feint pineapple residing in the mouth. Not light in body, it has certainly got a weight to it not quite fitting to its final ABV. A strange light beer, quenching but not altogether refreshing! (33cL, no date stamp, Dan Murphy’s Mandurah)

Davros (2782) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2010
Pours amber with a nice creamy-looking head. Nose shows lots of malt with honey, caramel and butterscotch quite noticeable. Hops are not forgotten, grassy and spicy notes are prominent. Flavours include the above sweet malty characters but without much backbone. More grassy hops. Body is pretty watery.

Bif (2046) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle- pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. mild aroma of citrus, grain and a bit of malt sweetness. Quite clean. Taste has a mild crsipness with a light malt sweetness and a bit of grain. Has an easy bitterness and a dry finish. Light body, crisp and smooth. Has a bit more character than most light beers. Fairly bland but not bad for the style. Not normally a beer I would seek out but came as part of a six pack sampler.

Sevenlee (1762) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is faint malt, grass and some slight hints of fruit. Taste is pretty bland as to be expected. To be honest, it’s not too bad for a low alcohol beer but in the end it’s still a low alcohol beer.

floydian1 (1355) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 26, 2011
330ml bottle. A clean yellow body with a medium-sized short lasting white head that leaves a reasonable lace. Nose is light grainy malts with a light lemony citrus hop presence. Palate is clean and medium-light bodied with an attenuated German pilsner-like taste. For a light beer, at least it has a semblance of dry hop bitterness to the finish. Could do a lot worse.
