Trogdor (196) - Cairns, - 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.

sm89walt (1837) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2015
345ml bottle. Pale lemon yellow; fine, facing white head. Clean and fresh but a little dull. Lemony citrus and slightly juicier red apple and grassy hop characters. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a short, soft intensity finish. The bitterness is low but the pale malts fine so as not to appear watery - just lacks oomph.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2015 345ml bottle into glass. Sweet malt nose. Clear yellow/amber with solid white head. Light carbonation. Mineral water mouthfeel. Slight bitter finish with late touch of malt. You could drink this all day. S’alright.

Hop_Hedonist (370) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2015
A fair lager when you’re as thirsty as I was! Easy drinking lemony brew - inoffensive and kinda boring but more drinking pleasure than a lot of macro lagers.

Kurtos (137) - 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 (376) - 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.
