bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2005
Poured clear golden (surprise) orange with a small and short lived head. Malt and honey in the aroma, and some low hoppiness. A fairly neutral flavour with a bit of bitterness. The palate is pretty weak, but Iíd have this over many of the other lagers I can get my hands on around here.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
330 ml bottle. Rich golden colour and a thin white head. Ver faint aromas of pale malt and honey. Flavour is a little bit floral with notes of sweet malt and honey. OK, but not great.

imdownthepub (10646) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2005
Bottled, Pasteurised. Golden beer with carbonated head. Delicious aroma, citric, orangey, but a disapointing following flavour. Somewhat cardboardy with low hops and a flay flavour. Loosely malty and a little soapy. Good start but quickly declining.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2005
This seems to get crapped on a fair bit in the ratings, but I liked it. Maybe Iíve had too many bad lagers lately. Standard pour of a clear gold colour with a decent head. Definitely something sweet in the aroma in addition to the malt presence, and the palate is gently malty with a crisp finish. Beats all the macro pale lagers Iíve tried lately.

ashbeero (51) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2005
Bright Golden Coloured beer with a white head that slowly fades to a thick ring. Some Lacing. Farly strong carbonation. aroma of pale malts and gentle hop notes. Some nice, but fast fading malt flavours. A fairly dry, fast finish. Mild bitterness, but well balanced, Overall a bit plain, jsut another generic lager, still better that most megaswill.

can8ianben (1343) - Souderton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2005
My sister brought this one back from New Zealand. Nice sweet aroma with faint hops. Good citrus character. Fairly normal pour, with quickly disappearing head and golden colour. The flavour is nice, not exceptional but a good citrus hop flavour followed by some good bitterness. This is a great dinner beer, or for watching rugby. I like it.

madquacker (1051) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2005
Good but reasonably dull. NOt sure what was os golden or Munich about it. Nothing out of the ordinary.

highlandlad (1418) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2005
Above-average antipodean lager. Gold colour, brief short head. Aroma has some sweet caramel notes and fresh hops. Malt is the dominant flavour, with some unusual Macadamia nut characters. Subtle but distinctive flavour profile. One of the brewerís better beers. (Bottle)

ALLOVATE (2467) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2005
Tasted from the bottle, the initial waft of tangerine citrus and sweet lively aromas hit dead on, but failed immensely inside the mouth. Honey malt in the front (look hard!!!), soapy and chalky palate, up starred by a minimal spicy bite and a short mildly sweet, dry swallow. Lovely scent, pity about the prey!!

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 6, 2005
Tasted 05/02/2005. Standard stubbie from Seatoun Four Square. Darkish golden colour with lightweight airy head that is gone by the time Iíve put the bottle down. Big bubbles donít look promising. Strong corn syrup and vegetal aroma has me checking the best before date. Iíve still got until September according to that. No malt OR hop flavour or aroma. I canít believe I used o think this was Monteiths best effort.
