UPDATED: AUG 5, 2015 440ml can into shaker. Can says brewed by Pinnacle Liquor, Sydney. Skunky nose settles down to distant sewer. Not good. Pale golden beer with solid lasting two finger head. High carbonation. Watery body. Mineral water spritz. Finish is stale cardboard and bubblegum and cabbage and tin. Really really horrible.

Poured from a clear 300ml stubbie. Poured a clear golden amber colour with a thin white foamy head that diminished quickly but laced well. Moderate carbonation. Aroma for me had hints of sour malt. Taste was initally tingly on the tongue but this softened a bit to a slight bitterness. Light body. Feels crips, tingly and clean in the mouth. Very short crisp, clean, slightly bitter finish. Refreshing.

A quaffer for the Summer months I’ve been known to imbibe on in bulk simply because it is beer and it is cheap, and for no other reason than to replace water when it’s 40°C in the shade, oh and the better half loves it so it has its positives.
Odd shaped bubbles cling to the walls of the glass; the head a lathered up but quick to come down, soapy white mess. A translucent, watery thin medium gold otherwise. Tinny, sweaty sock nose, vegetal and oddly salty, mineral-like. A carbonic acid bite plucks at the taste buds to start with a finish as rough as hessian underpants making one embarrassingly gassy. To fill the void it has a corn-like adjunct riddled sweetness, a chemical dryness to balance and metallic hop void for a finish. Well I didn’t say it was good. But it does the job it set out to do......, s’pose! (33cL, BB 13/02/13, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

At the Sail & Anchor, Fremantle April 2012. The cheapest beer of my Australian (at 7 Dollars). Utterly inoffensive, and certainly a slight improvement on the likes of Hahn.

From a 330ml bottle on 27/12/2010. Has that unmistakable and horrible grainy, stale smell of a macro lager.Taste wise, there is little up front but a metallic sweetness, followed by a reasonably assertive dry bitter finish. A fairly unpleasant, below average premium lager.

Appalling attempt at something that wants to be called a "Premium Lager", if there were ever such a thing from an Australian brewery. Light in colour and flavour, too much carbonation and absolutely no taste. Distributed through Woolworths in AUS and not even worth the discount price.

355mL clear bottle. Not a good sign. Pour is clear yellow with a fizzy white head that leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is lemon, creme, candy corn. Taste is cloyingly sweet, lots of old trash, newspaper, metal filings, candy corn, corn syrup. Really vehemently offensive.
