3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
2015 BJCP Category: 2A International Pale Lager
AROMA: Lightly sweet malt, but no hop presence. No flaws, either. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Crystal clear gold hue. Bubbly at first, but becomes calm. Large white foam mostly dissipates. Trace lacing. 3/3
FLAVOR: Low grainy malt flavor. Clean fermentation. Lightly sweet. Palette is mild but not boring. Hops have faded. Hint of oxidation. 13/20
MOUTHFEEL: Light/medium body. Consistently crisp and clean finish. Refreshing. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Nothing to dislike, but nothing to truly savor. Easy drinkability from the 500ml can and cheap cost make it appealing. 5/10
TOTAL SCORE: 32/50

smell of yeast and lemon. taste of lemon, a long and quite bitter sourness, with some malt and grains at the crest of the taste if you will. Pour is a abstract yellow with a ring of head

Pour from a 1 pint can. Clear golden brew with nice compact white head. Pleasant aroma dominated by sweet malty notes. Taste is sweet light malt up front with a modest hops towards the finish. Overall sweet from start to finish but a clean light caramel sweetness that is enjoyable. Nice lager.

330ml bottle. Poured into a Pilsner glass. Nice lager. Not the biggest fan of lager, so a 3+ is a high rating. Simple crisp flavour which is not complex but quite nice. Moderate sweetness (I had tried a sweeter lager just prior) and a light hop flavour. Small white head typical of the style and for me there was no lacing. Overall a decent drop and for Oz this was really well priced. Would have again.

Not a bad lager at all! Doesn’t have the big alcohol grain flavour which is nice. Mild corn and wheat flavours. Easy to drink.

330ml bottle into glass. Slightly smoky nose. Rapidly dissipating head leaving a scummy white film on light golden beer. Watery with cardboard notes. Tinny/vegetal finish. Quite unpleasant.

Can pours a clear pale golden with a large off-white head. Aroma of dry grassy hops and malt. Pleasent simple malt with some hops. Yeah I could drink a lot of these, very drinkable.

Oh Henninger, I remember you from my salad days in the suburban nightmare of my youth. 12 packs drunk in cemeteries & at pit parties & at the beach as the sun came up. You were never anything special, just an upgrade from Molson Canadian or Black Label. I’m surprised at how pretty you pour today, with a nice one finger mushy cap that you don’t see too often in these pale lagers. Your not very tasty: a cross between mushy corn flakes & soda water steeped with hay. While there’s really not much going on & i will probably never drink you again, you bring me memories of those lost crazy times & for that I say cheers.
