From a bottle. Pours clear gold with a tinned fruit aroma, watery mouth feel and bland taste.

Bought a cartoon of cans because they were well priced. But this beer has absolutely no aroma & no taste wouldn’t buy it again.

Next to no nose. Nice straw colour with a cleanish finish with a little bight.

Bif (1559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle- Pours a clear golden color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing. Fairly mild aroma of grain with a bit of malt sweetness and just a trace of citrus Taste of some malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, fairly crisp, quite smooth and a bit refreshing. Decent lager that is non-offensive. Good session beer. Goes down easy on a hot day.

Bottle- I’m just updating my records. Great name, but a very boring beer, lacking in any flavours or aromas.

davidm (1943) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 12, 2012
Bottle in Brisbane. Another boring pale lager. Aromas of hay, and hints of citrus. Taste is sweet, and short-lived. Palate is thin and watery. Yellow, with no head.

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2011
375ml bottle. Pours a clear, pallid yellow, with a tiny and rapidly fading white head, thus looking like just another dull pale lager. Looks can be deceiving, but in the case of this beer they are extremely accurate. This is just another dull pale lager. Weak grain notes on the nose, with some wet grass and cardboard. Metallic, stale hops lead into overly acidic lemon, before fading into a finish that is disturbingly reminiscent of a grease-soaked pizza box. Curses to whoever it was left two of these in my fridge - I’ve still got another one to go! As an additional note, whilst I am 100% certain that this is the same beer, my bottles were brewed in Vietnam, not Tasmania.

Jade (416) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2011
Clear golden colour, minimal carbonation and a thin white head. Slightly wheaty and metallic aroma. Rather empty flavour, a bit of wheat. Having said that, not completely unpleasant - just empty. Slight bitter after taste. If its a hot day, and this is whats available i’d drink it.

bottle. mate of mine used to get this as it was so cheap, think it was exclusive to one chain. as others have said, you really do get what you pay for.

Choos (644) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2010
Aroma: light apple with some lightly funky notes. Appearance: aussie lager yellow clear with a white head. Flavour: Typical watery aussie lager notes with pride of ringwood hops destroying any possibility of a decent brew. Overall don’t
