Is there any worse crime in the beer world? Trail blazing craft brewer sells to a major (nothing wrong with that) but fails, progressively, to maintain its rep and instead gets good at churning out bland beer. How about some respect for the brand and reputation? This is styled as a golden but it might as well be a low carb PL. No flavours to speak of, just the faintest nip of honey and Asahi-like dry finish.

Pours light golden with disappearing head. Loads of bitterness but no substance or balance whatsoever. Not sure how this could get past the taste testers. A triumph of marketing over beer makers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sevenlee (1618) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2015
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, some caramel and hints of grass. Taste is pretty average lager. Refreshing on a hot day, that’s about it.

Maybe it was the atmosphere, company or situation, but I found this to be OK, which doesn’t seem to fit with most reviewers. As a lager, it has the usual crisp and clean taste with enough hops and malts to make it more interesting than a lot of mainstream "big brands" beer you find here.

345ml bottle. BB 12/12/14. Pale gold colour; tall, frothy, white head which lasted very well and left some lacing. Very gentle aroma of bread, grass, citrus and a little cardboard. Light to medium sweetness and light to medium bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth texture but there is an unappealing, astringent and medicinal bitterness in the finish that lingers and spoils the whole experience. I realise this bottle was a couple of months past its BB date but I’ve had it a few times before and it’s as I remembered. 6.

Keg. A clear golden amber colour with a small but lasting white to off-white head. Biscuit- and caramel malt-centric with grassy hops, a light earthiness and some grain characters. Light to medium body, medium to full carbonation with a short, soft bitterness in the finish.

TedE (634) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2015
On tap at the Australian hotel. Nice spicy hop nose. Clear golden beer with lots of carbonation. Taste is papery, wishy-washy, bland. Finish is neutral then late slight vegetal hops. Not great.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2014
Pours clear yellow. Minimal head. Sweet honey like aroma. Some tropical fruit. Very watery body. Taste is malt driven, but very bland. The sweet honey flavour is the only thing really saving it at all.
