3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very pleasent beer to have if you want to indulge and drink more than one. While my pals are binging with busch light I would break out a stella. Nice ale, not filling, and even bolder on tap. A fine commercial beer to proudly hold.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma: Nothing, absolutely nothing. Appearance: Doesn’t get a whole lot better than that I guess, but really shows that you can’t judge a book by its cover, or in this case you can’t polish a turd I guess. Taste: Skunk, this beer is the king of skunk, it’s so skunky that I feel like a need a tomato bath afterwards. Other than that the carbonation turns it into a mess of bubbles before you can even swallow. Best kept for washing out the taste of bad food. Palate: Fine initially, but that bubble storm I mentioned earlier ends any pleasure you might have had extraordinarily quickly. Overall: Really bad, don’t drink it unless you absolutely have nothing better, and frankly that’s a rather large category.

Thin, pale pour. Not very smooth to drink, but mostly enjoyable. It""s easy to find better, tho.

Bottle. Fancy advertisements and good with roasts. Expensive compared to other beers that are just as good or even better.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Overrated. Looks good enough, with a clear gold finish and full head. Bitter taste isn’t too bad, but the aftertaste leaves me reaching for a glass of water afterward. Overall, nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden lager with a bright white, averaged life head. Aroma dominated by light malts and some noble hops. Malty flavour, with some doughy characters and apparent late hopping with nobles. Medium bitterness with a nice clean finish. One of the better ’Premium’ Lagers but a bit overrated as i dont think it is very different to many of the others on the market, just has classier reputation here in Aus.

A good lager to have if your having more than one. Many folks drink it with a top, but I think that makes it a bit too sweet.

Unexciting very slightly skunky beer. Better than a lot of other pales out there though. High ABV!
