2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at Outback Steakhouse - Poured a nice amber in color with a small white head that quickly faded. Aroma was light, but some evidence of hops and a bit more malty sweetness. Flavor pretty much matched the aroma... not strongly flavored. Easy drinking, but so is cold water... not as good as other Aussie beers that I have had.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On tap super cold at the local) I liked the idea that the beer was served at -2C into a well-refrigerated schooner glass! Poured clear with an active head that fell over the outside of the glass before quickly settling to about a consistant half centimeter. The first sip on my way to the table quenched my immediate thirst, and after sitting down I enjoyed watching the foam remnents freeze on the outside of the glass. This beer went down clean and fresh like a lagar should, and I opt for this over the rest of the usual Queensland lagar tap faire.

A fantastic drop best served in a chilled schooner. Watching the beautiful amber liquid pour into the schooner truly wets the appetite for what is to come. As you lift it towards your lips you get a whiff of the sensual aroma permeating from the perfectly formed glass. Finally the liquid gold hits your mouth. It tastes like beer, a flavour second to none.

Sampled out of a bottle. Not bad, it was very nice when it was super cold and it was hot outside. Overall though its not that great of a beer but its decent and crafted well.

11.15 oz bottle- poured transparent light yellow, foamy dissolving head, aroma of light malt. Hits the mouth with a very thin body, ever so slight hop on the finish. Very pale lager, but better than the majority of US macrobrews.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Very light golden body with a quickly fading foamy head. Yup. Look like a pale lager. Nose-smells like every other pale lager that you have smelled, so I wonít bother wasting time describing it. Taste-see smell. Tastes like a normal corny medium sweet pale lager. Wow.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
After its departure from the stubby 300ml bottle, presents a clear gold color with a brilliant white creamy head, that is statuesque, as it dematerializes, the lace forms an encircling sheet. Nose has a delightful malt sweetness, citrus like crispness, start has a decent malt profile, slightly sweet, with a touch of hop bitterness, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish has a perfect acidity, the hops perfect in their spiciness, dry and somewhat sweet till the end. Personally I found this beer quite refreshing and the best macro lager Iíve tasted in a long time, Iím sure not everybodyís glass of beer, but thatís what makes the world go round.

Sampled @ GDBTF. poured a bland yellow with little head. some straw hops, little malt to back it up. A rather undistinguished lager.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not much aroma, looks okay. Head is dry and sickly. The beer itself isnít too bad. A pale lager for sure, but with a certain enough zest that itís drinkable. The finish, in that it isnít downright awful, is what puts it above most lagers.
