1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a hazy straw color with a small head that fades quickly with no real lacing. Aroma of citrus, fruit and musty grain. Taste has a citrus bit with a trace of malt sweetness and grain. Has an acidic bitterness that just seems to linger. Light body and crisp but not well balanced. I suspect this beer is well beyond its "best by" date.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had the pleasure of trying this one on many and occasion and am still to find a fresh batch. Outdated but marked with a ’bottled on’ doesn’t help, maybe the bottlo’s could get these in the bargain long before its first 6 months on the shelf. Anyways, produces up with all the mannerisms of Deutsche weissbier; towering plume of white foam atop a muddy sandy gold body with highly audible carbonation. Yeasty, pasty, sorghum-esque nose with a forgiving hint of honey and orange marmalade. Honey dominates the palate with again that bready, pasty grain leavened by far too much yeast. Soapy backdrop and slick finish has a buttery diacetyl tinge to it. Honey in the finish. Dirty, washy mouthfeel with foamy carbonation. All esters, malt and hop lost this is just a messy lager if it ever was one. I still want for that fresh sample but, like the end of the rainbow, it is forever just beyond me!

Very hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Crisp semi dry palate. Light pale malt. Minerals and a trace of orange hop. Whisper of honey before the crisp finish. Nice palate but the beer is like fresh air!

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
clear straw yellow with a quick fading bright white head.
Metallic hops, malt and lemon
Follows nose but with a lemon tartness.
Clean and dry with too much carbonation and lemon tartness.
Decent but needs work

Bland and watery with no apparent aroma or mouth feel.
A very ordinary beer from Mclaten Vale.

Not to my taste - unpleasant acidity and aftertaste - but many rave about it.

330ml Bottle. A decent lager. Nothing overally special, but drinkable, better than your average lager.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Surprisingly not as bad as I thought it was going to be after having their pale a few months back. Just an easy goping lager, nothing out of the ordinary here

Pours a very large cloudy yellow frothy white head. Aroma is sweet malt with hints of fruitiness. Taste is about the same. Very light bitterness. Ordinary.
