This beer is either great or horrible depending on the time that you get it. I have had both so it's hard to rate it. If skunked it is swill, if not it is quite good, but not great. Slight bitter aftertaste. So so.

Cool bottle is probably the strongest part of this beer. Not horrible swill by any means, but its just a better than average lager (which isnt saying much as lagers are weak).

I have to start by saying that the best thing about this beer is the bottle. Golden-yellow with moderate white head that left good lacing. Typical lager aroma, slightly skunky. Bold malts with piney hops and tart, bitter finish. Medium-light body, nice carbonation and easy drinking.

Hoppy? Malty? Oh, skunky. Another green bottle european beer that you don't need to waste your time with. For what it's worth, it's every bit as good as Heineken. Maybe even better!

It's good for a middle-of-the-road lager, with a slight bitterness and a clean finish, but there are better beers.

Should have put more work in to the beer and less in to the bottle. a Nutty forgetable brew. Im sure tha bottle makes them tons of money. sad really.

A nice golden head and a good head. Sweet aroma, sweet taste and then some pepper in the aroma. A good tasting beer...

Love the flip top, this beer has a crisp flavor, but the after taste is what always turned me off. Nice if you can afford it but I do say this is a beer that you shoudlk try if you have not.

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2003
UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 Interesting bottle design, genourous size. Very yellow colour, minerally aftertaste, lingering palate with bitterness and slight dryness. Distinctive flavour. Plenty of character. Quality
