1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tap: Usual lager stuff. Gold, not much aroma, although some herbs and dog. Sugar and POR flavour, but not much. Crap and boring.

Along the same veins as VB.
Really rubbish mass produced beer here in Australia. Some old timers have a sentimental attachment to it because they have been getting drunk on it for the last 40 years. Doesn’t seem have the same level of loyal following as VB but some people keep drinking because that is what they have always been drinking.
You can drink it if you have to but personally I wouldn’t recommend it.
It is light on the palate with only an unpleasant yeasty mildly bitter taste.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Typical of mainstream Australian mass produced beer. Mild and inoffensive if served super cold to keep away the nasty flavours. Will quench your thirst after mowing the lawn, or cheap enough (comparing to other Australian home produced beer only) to mix with lemonade to make a shandy / radler. But be gentle with the lemonade as there isn’t much flavour in the beer - so you will drown it out if you put in more than a quarter of the volume. If you are a beer connoisseur or simply used to stronger brews - avoid this one. Only drink at about 1-2 degrees Celsius and drink quickly.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark yellow colour, strong and bitter flavours throughout. Very ’hoppy’ with subtle yet rich barley flavours. 6/10 bitterness with a slight sweet aftertaste. Strong honest beer.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 On tap. Pours pale golden. No aroma to speak of. Taste is watery bitter, a bit of corny hops. Nothing outstanding, but better than other Australian ?standard? pub beers.

250 ml (!) bottle into glass. Slight aroma. Big head fading, light body, thin feel, average carbonation. Not much lacing. Not as metallic as XXXX, nor as vomitous as VB but still not very pleasant.

What can I say, its a Pale Ale. It looks like one, it smells like one and it tastes like one. But in a warm Dubai that is OK, and it comes from far away, so who cares. (Dubai 201409)

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
What you’d expect of a light lager from Australia. Corn sweetness, very watery, very crisp with high carbonation.
