Not much flavor in this one. Light, fruity, and flowery with thin white head and pale yellow body. Tons of carbonation. Best part of this lager is the bottle.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 Bottled. Looks like gnat’s piss according to Clare - she’s so classy! No head at all either. Buttery chemical aroma with a bit of vomit. Grassy hops in the mouth with a creamy texture. A bit sickly throughout but there are far worse pale lagers out there. Score 2.2
Subsequent rating scored 1.2. Average becomes 1.7

From the bottle
I thought this would be a better alternative to many Chinese beers. Instead I find out it is swill from an operation in Australia. Don’t be fooled by the interesting looking bottle. It might be the best aspect of this otherwise forgettable mistake of a beer.
Aroma / Appearance - The pale golden body with white head was the most normal aspect of a beer that otherwise had major flaws throughout. Dull wheat left to dry in the sun is the strongest aspect of what is otherwise generic and grainy.
Flavor / Palate - Liquid wheat puffs give this the taste of sugary breakfast cereal. Weak, generic, and passive it has nothing positive going on. This is a classic example of how not to produce something unless your goal is to mass produce inoffensive products for a public that cannot handle flavorful releases.

Interesting bottle sculpted to look a Buda with oriental characters all over it, but then you find out its brewed in Australia what is strange. Piss gold in color, no just piss really Buda went pee in the bottle LUCKY us. Stinks just like a strong Euro lager, skunky dark malts with grass and hints of lemon. Taste is actually not bad toasted malts, grass, lemon, skunky hops. Not that bad actually but far from good. Awesome bottle.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, sweet bottle. Small to medium sized white fizzy head. Aroma is grain, corn, some hops and a touch sweet. A medium to light bodied pale lager. The malts are grain, bread and cereal. Touch of corn. The hops are mild and a touch spicy, think sazz hops. Mouth feel is a touch thin. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing white head. Clear yellow golden body. Mild weak and sweet barley malt aroma. Low carbonated malty flavor with a bit of grassy notes but little hops bitterness and a short aftertaste. Thin sweet watery and boring.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2010 Bottle bought at ASDA. Golden lager with slight carbonation. Utterly forgetable with no hops evident and some thin malt sweetness. Poor.
