Maris (1000) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 6/10/2013. Pours a slightly cloudy orange golden with a small head. Has a modest aroma featuring fruit and malt. In the mouth this has a lot of typical English bitter to it (should be classed a bitter not a pale lager imo). It’s very malty (bread and toffee), with some fruity notes, and quite a dry, lingering medium bitterness. Has a medium body and carbonation. Pretty solid brew.

Sevenlee (1351) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours a golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, caramel and woody notes. Taste is medium sweet leading to a dry-ish finish. Meh.

Bottle. Pours hazed near clear yellow straw gold with small light white head and some smallish lace. Aromas of grain, light herbs, some malt sweetness. light medium body, tasty, finishes a touch sweet and puckering. Herbal grainy finish.

Bif (1502) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle- Pours a bronze color with a small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of malt sweetness with a bit of citrus and grain.Taste of caramel sweetness abd a bit of grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly moderate body, smooth with moderate carbonation. Decent beer that goes down easy. Reminds me of an English Bitter.

Dredd (700) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2012
Nice aroma on this, almost citrusy. Flavor is initially light citrus then moves on to some stone fruit. Finish is a nice medium bitterness. Would make a good session beer with a lot more going on than your average macro affair.

floydian1 (1005) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle (330ml). A hazy dark golden pour with a minimal white head. Nose is strong sweet honey malts and little else (perhaps some bready notes). Flavour is malty and syrupy sweet with a light hop bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with an oily texture and average carbonation. It is certainly maltier than your average Aussie "premium lager" but not to my taste (eg. too sweet, lacks a dry hop presence, strangely unrefreshing).

EdKing (1907) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2011
On tap White Horse, Parson’s Green. Strangely for a ’bitter’ it looks cloudy dark amber. Appetising. Pine and citrous hops in the nose. Taste is more like a pale ale. Sweet malty flavour giving way to hop bitterness.

hawthorne00 (2474) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle. Slightly hazy light amber with an inch of white head. Aroma has biscuits, pine, honey and some butterscotch. Quite substantial in the mouth with a round fruitiness that’s unusual in an Australian lager. There’s a real house malt profile that works well for the ales but is less obviously suited here and is a little reminiscent of Butter Menthols. Piney bitterness. Robust and refreshing.

Bottle. Appearance is golden amber with slight cloudiness. Aroma of hops wth a hint of honey. Very bitter to the taste.
