1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light golden appearance with a slightly fruity overtone, this beer was an uninspiring selection and I quickly moved on to others.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: lagery and citrus notes. Appearance: pale gold with a large soap bubbly head and large bubbles rising to the surface. Flavour: some maltiness with quite a few hoppy notes. Palate: thin and hoppy aftertaste with quite a bit of carbonation. Actually could be refreshing.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Looks, smells, tastes, and finishes like nothing - itís as if you havenít drunk anything at all. Although there is nothing particularly unpleasant to take away from this beer, it is one of the most boring beers Iíve tried in a very long time.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 A Mes rate:
Spicy hoppy aroma. Very light blonde looks with a crap head. Yeasty flavour with some fairly apparent hoppy bitterness. Strong malt throughout with some slight citrus notes. Thin moutfeel. Cool bottle though.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled: Pours a clear pale straw colour with medium carbonation and a fluffy white head. Lightly fruity hop nose. Body is very thin - as is the flavour, nothing offensive simply because there is nothing much of anything. Mild bitter finish, a lawnmower beer at best. Better still upgrade to the Sassy Red instead. Thanks Beer Legend.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Golden colour with a slim white head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is fairly bland. Not much going on. Thin bodied. Doesnít taste bad, just pretty boring.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden, faint hops on nose and palate, definitely thin in the body, but refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very pale golden colour, no head. Aroma is grainy with some earthy and herbal type of hop that Iíve never tasted before. Flavour is reasonably balanced with both interesting hop flavour and some malty character. Wonít win any prizes, but at least it tries.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Light gold with a white bubbly head. Aromas are grain, corn and metal with soap and some sour fruitiness. Flavours are sweet grain with caramel, biscuit and some fruity sourness. Not too bad in the end. Nice bottle, too. Warning - it has just warmed up, and its not so good. Drink it quick and its OK.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pretty sweet and thin. Reminded me of Cascade Summer Blonde, another of these golden summery, bland lagers which seem to be popular down under. Sweet pale malt, and not much else. In many ways this is a typical Antipodean lager, but perhaps this is a bit cleaner.
