High speed drink.. get it down ya throat an then get onto sommit else. Watery, bland, with the viscosity of hot water. Not the worst, but nowhere near the best. But then, it is just Lager. (Sorry all you Aussies out there, I should explain: - Lager is a particular type of Beer, or in Australia it is the only type of Beer. OK?)

Nothing special here. Just a bland skunky lager.

a sickly sweet aroma that fades quikly after the bottle is opened. the rest of the beer is very similiar to american brews such as budweiser, but maybe with a little care in the brewing processes.

Let me preface my comments by stating that I drank a pint of this immediately following a pint of Newcaste Brown Ale. This tastes like watered down Budweiser. Don’t pay the extra $$$ when Bud is so much cheaper and tastes better.

Along with Carling this drink is amongst the worst I have tasted. A metallic lager with a definite chemical aftertaste. And I live in Scotland. This beer is regarded here as ’the poor mans drink’ or ’the alcoholics drink’ due to its low price and, frankly, awful taste. Nasty. And it’s rapidly losing pump space to Stella and Kronengbourg 1664-thank God. McAwan’s went the same way 5 yrs ago. Scotish lager is CRAP.

Rerate#3. Sweet honeyish delight. Slightly grassy, and pumpernickel bread tones with strong leather dubbin in the finish. Too smooth for a garage beer, but enough funk to pass flavour test. Fast becoming fave lager too quickly. Brillo!
