COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The special light-stable hop extract used in this beer allows it to be packed in clear glass bottles. The unique flavour is due to the Ice Brewing technique which produces a smoother, purer and more refreshing beer.

Pale golden, clear, medium head. I wouldn’t go so far as calling this "foul", but it is pretty boring. Sweet malt is really all you get for flavour (the same as all corn-adjunct, over-processed pale lagers on the market). I wouldn’t choose to drink it again if an alternative were available, but I wouldn’t turn it down if the beerfridge was empty on a Friday night. This is my standard review for all "two-star-or-less" piss.

There’s a reason this is the cheapest of the aussie 4.9% posse.

I had this at a party once, i didn’t really like it, i kept pulling a "whiskey face" after each swig i took. I would only drink this if it was a really hot day and it was free. Are they still making this?

Very ordinary tasting, but perhaps the price is the only good thing about it, if you were a student or on the dole.

Pale amber clear under a smallish moderate lasting white head and some cobweb frothy lacing. Sweetish malt and faint bitter hops aroma. Light watery body with boring to bland palate. Soft bitter and less sweet with hint of wheat beer sour flavours. Faint bitter finish and after taste.

This beer was introduced as a 5.2 % ABV beer in around 1993 and was an excellent drop, brought out as competition to Carlton Cold Filtered beer. At the time it was criticised for its alcoholic volume and accused of encouraging binge drinking in the youth market (in the days before alcopops) For whatever reason it was denatured first to 4.2 and then 4.0 at the beginning of the Century and is now just a tasteless boring mid strength beer. I doubt if much of it is sold anymore.

Um, how do you describe something so tastless and nasty

I wouldn't have had this one if my roomie didn't give me a stubby of it one night. I can't think of much else to say - totally unspectacular.

Looks like beer, almost smells like it too. Terribly fizzy. I don't know if it's the residual effects of my cold but, I can't taste anything here. This must be the Down Under version of Bud Ice. At least it's not offensive as is Tooheys Blue. For Aussie beers, stick with Coopers or Southwark.
