3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Botled. Golden colour, clear, brief head. Grassy aroma with a whiff of grapefruity hops. Sweet and firmly malty with clean mouthfeel and a fair amount of hops, resulting in an orangey flavour and a pleasantly bitter finish. Nothing spectacular, but a solid, well made lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale golden, clear, medium head. Above average for the Aussie premium lager market, but still pretty boring. Is it worth paying the extra over, say, VB or Castlemaine XXXX Gold? It sepends on how discriminating you are, but I’m not sure that it’s a big enough difference. I’d probably just spend the extra and buy a solid european lager.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 Another 'premium' on the aussie market, i was a bit hesitant to try it, and rightly so. A bland, boring, fizzy little concoction. I'd rather drink VB, coz at least its not trying to be something its not. This beer is a joke.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is more of a pilsener than a lager, it hads a grassy hoppy aroma, a harsh bitterness and a metallic finish. Not good.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yellow gold, bright, watery and almost still with no head. Not exactly screaming at me right now. Weedy and grassy nose with a hint of salty brine and cardboard. Hmm.... Gassy, carbonic, watery thin and lagered of all life. Really close to soda water. It could be the first beer I’d admit a lemon wedge would actually enhance. Very little here at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
OLD NOTES JAN 17, 2004
Has a corny malt aroma. A few hop notes, as well as a few light sweet caramel malty kind of flavours came through. Nothing special, but not bad for your average lager. Easy and decent price.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Pours a light golden yellow with a medium white head. Mildly skunky aroma. A hint of coffee. Mild malt flavor but it has a slight vegetal flavor also. Kind of strange but not bad.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Keg - Edison’s, Mona Vale. Poured a clear, lively golden yellow with a small, slowly fading white head. Aromas of grain, corn, grass and lemony hops . Light to medium body, medium to full carbonation, firm mouthfeel and a short, soft intensity bitterness in the finish. Crisp and refreshing with some malt sweetness to balance.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.
