2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. This brewhouse has recently been relocated and is now brewing several beers that had been retired, this being one of them. Not as pale and watery looking as some pilseners although it does carry that familiar thin white head and clear orange colour. Some faint grass and grain aromas and the flavour is light and musky and misses the mark.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 330ml bottle on 15/1/2011. Please note that I’m not 100% sure this is the right entry for the beer I had (will move this if I see a more up to date entry). Mine is labelled StarLager Classic Pilsener, is 5%, and is from Brisbane, but the bottle says it’s brewed by Brisbane Brewing Co. And this one’s clearly not retired! Doesn’t have much in the way of aroma, just a little grassiness. Not too bad when it hits the mouth. It’s sweet up front, with some honey and citrus fruit notes, and is nicely hopped. Unspectacular but decent.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught @ The Brewhouse, Brisbane. Rough notes from April 08. Poured a pale yellow colour with white head. Aroma was grainy with some hop notes. Flavour was strangely sweet for a lager and lacked any bitterness. Poorly balanced with a watery finish.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Sampler at the brewpub. Not recommended. Watery looking and tastes of corn and some astringent malt. Thin palate.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Hard to fully describe this beer, as of the 150ml sampler I could only drink about 1/3 of it. It smelt corny and tasted like a mouthfull of copper coins. Urghh!
