Pours pale yellow with a thin white head. Smells of crisp pilsner malt and some stray hops. Tastes watery but refreshing. Good for what it is.

The last time I drank this was in 1974 it was cheap but everybody liked it,a lot sweeter than xxxx bitter,aroma was is sugary,malty.Flavour well sweet,a bit of a pick up taste,there was another one,in a different bottle not as good.This one sugary,malt,slight tang at the end and sweet finish,bitter was not high.Yes it was a fairly well accepted drink,quenched the thirst.Medium head to start back to lace,fair carbonation,light gold colour.

330ml bottle. Middle of the road pale lager. Clear and straw in colour with a white head and good carbonation. Aroma of hops - not too bad. Didn’t realise this brew was still around.

I prefer export but if you are in Port Moresby and this is all you can get tuck in and stay inside. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

floydian1 (898) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 16, 2009
330ml bottle (4.5% ABV). It is a bland run-of-the mill tropical lager and I wasn’t expecting it to be anything else. Pours clear straw yellow with a negligible white head. Aroma of very sweet honey lager malts and little else. Tastes syrupy sweet with a medium-bodied fizzy palate. No hop presence to speak of. May be just about passable if accompanied by spicy Asian foods.

KeefOz (837) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2012
Poured a light golden amber colour with a thin white bubbly head that retained OK and laced OK. Aroma of sweet malt. Bland sweet taste. Light body. Aroma, taste and palate comparable with other large commercial brewery lagers.

Momentum is everything for this type of beer. But even in a hot, muggy day, under the traditional ceiling fans, I could not take a second bottle that was offered to me. Grassy, straw and caramel. Bitter, but not nice.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2007
Fits the regular pale lager mould with no surprises. Mildly sweet, no hop flavour to speak of, nothing nasty at all really. It’s fresh tasting enough and really quite drinkable. The best part about it is that you can win your school fees! Good to see a brewery taking an interest in kids education!

Thanks to my old man for bringing me this random new country tick. Pour clear light yellow, with no head. Aroma of straw, slight floral, grass. A little bit more fresh than your traditional lager. The taste is a little sweet upfront, with a bitter lingering finish. Watery body, with a slightly fizzy carbonation. Guess this would be better on a hot summer day.

From a bottle. Aroma is not that flash, pours a clear pale yellow with almost no head. Tastes quite bland, is smooth though, I doubt I’ll drink it again.
