Bottle. High fluffy but lasting white head leaving nice curtains on the glass. Clear golden body. Sweet malty, grainy aroma but also notes of hops, more than expected actually. Flavor though is sweet malty with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short sweet aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Still an excellent example of a Premium Australian lager. When it was first produced it was a great hit because Australians had little exposure to full flavoured and aromatic beers such as Stella Artois, Pilsneer Urquell etc. and this was a new taste experience. However since then the market in Australia has been flooded with imports and Hahn Premium has tended to disappear off the radar of the increasingly sophisticated Australian drinker.

Bought this from OíNeills off-license in celebration of Australia Day here in Ireland. It says that it is a ípremiumí beer.
Drank this straight out of the bottle so I canít really comment too accurately on the pour, but I donít imagine that I missed much based on the otherís reviews.
Golden yellow color like most macro lagers of this type. Not too much of a smell or aroma really.
A bit of bitterness and chemical sweetness too that would expect from a macro lager-but it isnít too off-putting.
Plenty of carbonation, but not really too full. I tried this along with the VB and I actually do prefer this I think-although I donít really know that I would be able to tell them apart too much in a blind taste test to be honest.
I could see how you could drink plenty of these if you wanted to as they go down easy. I think that I will continue to try and find a decent Aussie beer though instead.
