1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled sample from WBC2006. Pours a cleary light amber with a large white head. Light body with medium carbonation. There’s a cardboardy/earthy quality to the nose and the taste.

Alarm bells sound at the mention of that ’p’ word. We all know that this term is used when the brewrs want to be all grown up and loved like Crown lager. Well, if you asked me I would say that said Crownie lovers would be quite at home with this one. As expected, nothing more.

On tap at Oxford. I’m seriously starting to avoid beers with the word Premium attached. Some noble hops in the nose, standard lager appearance. Quite thin with a nothing finish. A bit boring.

Never expect much from something labelled premium, because it's always thin, watery, yellow, lagerish crud. In this particular instance it seems to have been hopped with common garden ivy and cardboard.

Yet again a dumb Aussie swigger. How dumb. Not sure what to say. I'm getting the feeling that going through the brisbane beer festival beers is something like describing different shades of off white.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale yellow in colour. Couldn't taste much at all, pretty watery and lame. Nothing too offensive, just overtly bland.

nfob03. we were running out of things to taste by this stage. reasonable as far as bland lagers go, no pride of ringwood to really ruin things
