Well, it was the free crystal glasses that 'forced' me to buy this beer. Cost about 2 bucks, so don't know where the other Aussies where buying from. It is yet another premium example of Australian mainstream quality beer, ie. pretty crappy. It definitely has a stale bitterness to it. Bland, boring, but harmless and easily disposed of. I have tasted a lot worse, but when you are hooked with the 'Single Malt' guff, you expect something better.

The brewer of this beer was famous for winning home brew competitions. He then moved from that to commercial brewing, working at Scharers at a time when they had 'problems' with their brews. Well, has he taken this curse to stockade. I just don't get the premium crap. It is a beer that is like other beers of its style. Nothing more. Certainly not worth the $3.50 I paid either.

vanvenlo (1153) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2004
9 June 2003 - Light malt aroma. Big head with good retention. Flavour is quite clean with a fair bit of hop. Bland, non-fulfilling the promise of its creatively priced (rip off) $4-20, not sure how much it is these days. Lacks originality, malt, hops, need I go on......... so I won’t.

I thought that this was ok for a small producer, it had spark, bite as well as a good colour and head when poured. It tastes something like the "Chopper Heavy" they put out also, but I find the Chopper a better buzz for your buck!

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2003
This is more of a pilsener than a lager, it hads a grassy hoppy aroma, a harsh bitterness and a metallic finish. Not good.

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2003
Stella artois try hard. Skunky. Too rich. Nothing apart from sweetness and mild malt palate. Head dissolved like a fruit tingle in water. Would be a good sessoinal beer if it wasnt so rich and sweet i wont be going back for the free glass with a 6 pack.

Pretty average sort of beer. Like CQC i got free crystals glasses with a beer that was already pretty cheap. I got what i payed for. One dimensional average australian mainstream 'premium' beer. cheers

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2003
This stuff ain't so bad. It's pretty boring, but it's clean and nice and far better than the beer it's ripping off (Stella). Pours with a pretty big, nice head and decent retention. Minus appearance points for biting Stella Artois' label. Aroma is lightly malty and a bit of grassy hop. Flavour is quite clean with a fair bit of hop, which tastes like NZ Saaz. It's not brilliant but it's better than a 1.86 beer!

Winchester (75) - Struggle Town NSW, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2003 This was on special, a 4 pack for $6. It was quite good considering how cheap it was, but I wont be buying it again.
