2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a pale golden color with a fair head. Mild aroma with a bit of citrus, malt sweetness and grian. Taste is similar to the aroma mild and fairly bland. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light body, touch of crispness and a bit too sweet . Another run-of-the-mill lager.

375ml bottle. Golden orange colour, thin white head which fades away very quickly. Light aroma of grain, hops. Taste is a little bland, some malts and hops and a little metallic bitterness. I mean it’s not bad but there’s not much good to write about either. Disappointing.

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.

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.

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.
