highlandlad (1434) - 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 brewer’s better beers. (Bottle)

ALLOVATE (2625) - 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 I’ve put the bottle down. Big bubbles don’t look promising. Strong corn syrup and vegetal aroma has me checking the best before date. I’ve still got until September according to that. No malt OR hop flavour or aroma. I can’t believe I used o think this was Monteiths best effort.

Better alternative to Export Gold, smells and tates so much nicer. Easy to drink and everyone’s happy.

quite cloudy, tastes and smells to much like honey. too fizzy. a bit thin and bland.

Stew41 (1805) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2004
Pours a nice clean head. Good colour depth, gold tending to brown. No descript nose with some faint sweet notes. Refreshing palate, good fizz, but I’m battling to find any defining flavour notes. Finishes a fraction thin. Edit: some ok malty notes appeared later and filled the berr out a bit...I'll bang on another point for the development.

bluevegie (3067) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2004
Orange straw colour with a white fluffy head that lasted most of the distance and left some lacing. Slight malt aroma which took a while to come through. Not a lot of taste, a balance of malt and hops, slightly soapy on the finish and almost oily texture. Thirst quenching beer and nothing more.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2004
Somewhat pilsnerish, but not really quite there, not enough hop aroma or bitterness for that. I swear that I could taste the use of sugar in this brew, but the bar-wench told me I was dreaming.
