1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Looks quite good with a Ppale gold clear brew under a large white foamy lasting head and some light irregular lace as well. Faint sharp sappy woody hops aroma. Medium to light body. Mild metallic, slightly stale bitter and fizzy soda water textured start. Lighter corn malt sweet after that. Marginally better than their ice rubbish.

Available at Trader Joeís in case anyone is loking for it. Nice summer beer. Gold color, large head. A light bodied lager. Bright and fresh tasting. Light malts and bright hops. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly bitter. A nice refreshing beer.

This beer has a very unusual flavour of something ot other in it. My sister reckons that it makes your burps smell like youíve just had a joint. Anyway, thereís something about it I canít help liking. Oh, and it gets you more pissed than a beer of its strength should.

Bland golden drek. OK, decently made and all, itís not the lack of brewing skill that makes it suck, just the lack of flavour, aroma and colour.

Big fluffy white foam, lightly perfumey aroma, fairly bitter, more Hallertauer, otherwise another fizzy yellow beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
My first tasting of this old favorite since pre-ratebeer times, and what a dissapointment! Very mild aroma, of something I canít pick because itís barely there. Head looks like itís the result of some kind of additive, not from being a real beer. Flavour, mainly of water but I must admit I found some malt in there along with halleratau hops but I am talking parts per million here. I can see a re-rate is in order for a number of other thin Aussie beers. (I wonít be so merciful the next time I cross a VB!).

Artificial in looks and taste. Must be Australian for Coors. Sorry mates, this isnít one to be proud of. I will give it a sympathy point because I drank this after an Aventinus, most evrything pales by comparison after that.

i tried this after much anticipation, because Hahn Premium Light tasted so good. i thought this would be better but it tastes and looks like grassy horse piss. drink Hahn Ice instead, itís cheaper. slightly better from the tap though.
