3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish amber in colour with a bare skim of head and little evident carbonation. Ruby malt aromas with pecan nuttiness. It is restrained, maybe a hint of Fuggles but the star of a show of medium entertainment is the malt. It doesn’t smell bad and it doesn’t smell bad either. Plenty of carbonation in the mouth with caramel and tangy malt coming to the fore. A little bitterness, but not massive, ’nor massively memorable. A session pint which I would be happy to drink but not one I would go out of my way to have again if I’m honest.

Medium brown with a thick head. Very little aroma. Starts of grainy, moving in to a citrusy sort of flavor without being fruity, and ending with nice hoppy notes. Medium bodied.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Clear dark amber color with medium but quickly diminishing off white foam. Aromas, off malt, bit metallic and in general smells like an empty can. Palate, light body with watery texture with very weak malty aftertaste. Tastes of water and bit of malt, if anythign bit on bitter side if you can call it that. Overall, tastes like cheap pale lager just with nicer color, quite awful beer. Also as now half way through and when you take big gulps to finish it quicker you get some light caramel notes on the taste

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
IIRC I last had this at the Queenscliff Hotel in the late 80s - it’s been through _how_ many owners since then? Can. Clear amber with a slice of cream head. Aroma of toffee, flowers, boiled sweets, hints of pepper and mace. Light bodied, moderate carbonation. It’s a little dead feeling but refreshing. Mild grainy taste with some dilute caramel flavour, boiled sweets and firm bitterness. A pleasant surprise.
