Can from Dan Murphy’s 260714. Huge fluffy head of soft foam with a clear amber beer beneath. Wet straw and grain aroma with a flavour that is best not discussed. Pretty ordinary really.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from can. Can’t really detect much of an aroma, maybe a bit floral. Pours clear and pale. The slightest hint of bitterness. Light and thin, with average carbonation. Overall, not that great, but still somewhat refreshing on a hot day.

Bland lager. I don’t know why it’s in the Premium Lager style. (Except for its name...)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, 0.50l, courtesy of Maurizio & can 0.55l, courtesy of Miha. Clear pale golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, hay and paper. Taste starts with light sweet grainy malt, follows by grassy sour and chalky notes with crisp and dry mouthfeel and medium bitter finish. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Not so premium for my taste, I would rather call it Lech Poor...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks good, in fact it looks brilliant in the glass. Big, tumultuous snow-white crown that is lasting and weaves a messy lace. Yellow gold and sparkling with a fine bead. Aroma is soft and subtle hinting at fresh mown grass and chaff. Similar in flavour but soft and drabby in mouthfeel. Soapy in the finish. Lemony sour tail end with a soft bitterness of old hops. Still boring half way through the pint, and by the end it is just as sessionable as soda water. One dimensional! (50cL, BB 06/09/14, Dan Murphy’s, Currambine)

Bottle sample at my 5555th rating tasting at Sar HaMashkaot Ramat Gan. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of hay, graininess and a bit of corn. Sweetish flavor, grainy and corny, with faint bitterness. Light-bodied.
