Kurtos (103) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2014
Quite mild and refreshing as a lager should be, and delivers a bit more flavour then alot of locally produced macro lagers, good for a few.

mattyhennessy (342) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2014
Golden yellow pour. Thick white head that dissipates to a firm lacing. Sweet malty and grassy aroma. Far greater malt character than most macro lagers. Initial clean bitterness and crisp finish, with the grassy and citrus aromas carrying through to the flavour. Slightly over carbonated. Light bodied.and better than the standard lager. But nothing jumps out as overly impressive.

Pours clear pale orange, with a tiny, quick disappearing head, a chemical hops taste and smell. Not that flash.

omhper (19945) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2014
Keg at James Squire Brewhouse @ Waterfront City, Melbourne, Victoria. Clear golden, small head. Neutral nose. Sweetish with light-medium body and clean mouthfeel. Low-medium bitterness. Little flavour, and shallow hard malt character.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2013
Pale amber with fast dissipating frothy white head. Grassy, lime zest and DMS aromas. Lime and fresh cut green vegetable flavours, malt doesn’t make much of an appearance in the flavour. light, watery, mildly carbonated body with a dry mouthfeel. Over all not a great beer, but might be Australia’s best macro lager? It certainly has more to offer than most of the macro swill out there and it never fails to impress my macro drinking friends.

gnoff (7976) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2013
Draught as part of a tasting paddle, at James Squire Brewhouse at the Portland Hotel, Melbourne, on July 30, 2013.
Clear straw yellow color, white head. Sweet, light, malty taste. Grainy aftertaste. Thin fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sweet, malty scent.

KeefOz (966) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2013
Poured a clear pale golden amber colour with a one-finger white foamy head that diminished fairly quickly and laced OK. Moderate carbonation seen by medium sized bubbles forming trails. Aroma of mild sweet malt, a trace of hops and a trace of yeast. Taste initially of sweet malt followed by a hint of mild sourish yeast then mild bitterness. Light body. Smooth and soft with a clean crisp finish. OK.
