2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Actually a pleasant sweet malt aroma of this ’budget’ beer. Light clean taste, relatively inoffensive bitterness, little hop presence. Light mouth-feel and poor head retention. An easy drinker.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow colour with a thin white head, aroma is light malt with some grass, taste is sweet with citrus fruit with a dry finish.

OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003
Actually thought it was European at first. I was played a fool. Very sweet and easy. Smells a bit strange and leaves quite bad after taste in your mouth after way to many. Cheap, but better than the alternatives at the price.

The head is medium, body blond. It smells watery, bit malty, stale. The taste is watery, bit malty, stale, metal. Crap

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
For a cheapy a more aromatic nose, but quite soapy on the palate. Hints of flavour, but more being able to chop quantity than delivering quality.

Haagen is a decent beer and totally worth buying especially when on sale at countdown for 12 for $15

A pleasant and refreshing lager that's easy to drink. It has a crisp taste that would also be enhanced with a slice of lemon or lime.

A turd, but a slightly polished one, in that it has all the usual macro-wank corny, grainy, slightly grassy and sweet aromas and tastes but in *slightly* larger quantities. Funny how all the shit beers claim to be ’finest quality’. A dozen of these will have you talking the finest shit with your mates as you fry your cheap imported steaks to death on the barby. Maaate!

Cold, yellow, mostly odourless. It was touching 30 degrees in the shade when I knocked the top off and so it barely touched the sides. In this respect this beer was ideal but the flavour was barely there to be noticed. Brewed from only the finest natural ingredients? Well it must have gone wrong somewhere along the line.
