crispi (106) - - JAN 6, 2013
Pale Amber/yellow with quickly dissipating white head, no lacing at all to speak of. Weak aroma of honey, but with a metallic taste, maybe a slight hint of caramel, floral hops. clear, slightly sparkling. Slightly sweet, with balanced bitterness, light bodied with thin texture. abrubt finish. Not good/not bad. 4.7% ABV.

blackbock (112) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2014
(bottle) Aroma did not match expectations but was unusual. Amber colour. Poor head despite the claims on the label. Taste was...well, flat and boring. No malt highlights, bog standard Australian hops. I am wondering how the makers can claim this is an "Oktoberfest inspired lager". It tastes like Crown Lager relabelled. Disappointing.

pale gold pour, 1cm white head. Malty, sweet aroma. Taste is sweet, a bit of malt, very light bitterness. Ok, nothing special.

motelpogo (6968) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 17, 2014
bottle, picked up in some bottle-o in newcastle. pale amber; hints of nutty munich malt character mixed with chlorine in the aroma; light grassy bitterness. not a whole lot happening, as befits the style, but at the same time not as clean as the better examples in bavaria

Rangi (605) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2013
Nice poor with minimal head that quickly receds. Nothing to really write home about this one. Felt like there was just something missing. Easly drinkable on the hot days.

Bif (1559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Pours a bright copper color with a head that fades quickly with no real lacing. Aroma of malt, bit of honey and a bit herbal. Tatse of malt with a bit of honey. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body and quite smooth. Drinkable beer good for a couple.

KeefOz (966) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2013
Poured a clear light golden amber colour with a thin white bubbly head that didn’t retain and laced poorly. Low carbonation. Aroma strongly of malt. Taste initially of sweet malt followed by a pretty bland dry aftertaste. Light body (watery). Finish short, soft, bit tingly on the tongue.

DeliriumT (367) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2012
Pours quite pale with dissipating white head. The aroma is honey, lemon and fresh grass. The flavour is more subtle on the honey with a pronounced hot spiciness. Unfortunately the beer has been lagered so the flavour lets down the aroma

330ml bottle- Lovely subtle malt aromas. Nice sweet malt initial taste, with a pleasing subtle hop bitterness.
