Lives up to its Red name with a weird reddish look. Has a very week hops smell with an almost sweet after tone. The type of beer that turns up in your fridge after a party and remains there for ever.

Kita (996) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 10, 2014
Can, 0.375l. Clear pale golden color with large frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma is malty, grassy, grainy and vegetably. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt, fresh grainy sour and metallic following, dry mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Oh my deer, nothing special...

KeefOz (852) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2013
Poured a clear pale amber colour with a thin white bubbly head that diminished quickly and developed moderate lacing. Moderate carbonation with medium sized bubbles forming trails. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste slightly sweet followed by a very mild, almost nil, hops bitterness. Light body bordering on watery. A weak flavoured nothing beer that is not really bitter.

Jade (407) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2012
You look at the can, and just know its gonna be bad. Pours a celar gold, moderate carbonation and a frothy white head. Bready, malty aroma, a bit funky. Empty, watery flavour and texture. Slight bitter after taste.

oh6gdx (20244) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2012
Bottled (thanks to my cousin Kaj!). No matter what the name says about red, this beer pours a golden colour with a white small head. Aroma is bready malts, some slight floral and herbal notes as well. Flavour is malts, some mild grassy and herbal notes along with mild bitterness. So atleast the "bitter" part is true in the name, even though to the style it is a pale lager. Better than expected.

If heavily chilled then I actually donít mind this one all that much. Sweet and slightly malty itís certainly a better drink than Tooheys extra dry in my opinion, and itís cheaper.

Maris (967) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2010
From a 375ml bottle on 13/6/2010. A nostalgic trip back to the days when I was a young man and would buy cases of Tooheyís Red because it was nearly always on special. Iím pretty sure it used to be more than 4%. So how does it scrub up now that I know what a really good beer tastes like? Itís actually not quite as bad as I thought it would be. It does actually have a discernible sweet, malty, grassy aroma. In the mouth, itís sweet, a touch metallic, with a very slight hint of hops. There is worse out there, but my case buying days are over.

mkel07 (3117) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2009
375ml can. Honey colour with a deep dense white foam blanket. Aroma of soap suds and dish water. Light and sweet flavour with nothing that really comes through. Very basic and boring.

bookman10 (626) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2009
One of the best bitters I tried during my recent Australian trip. Fresh, malty aroma and pours with a medium body. Some metallic aftertaste, but not quite as heavy as in other Australian pale lagers.

jgb9348 (4659) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Light amber coloured body with a large soapy white head. Aroma of fresh malt, hops and a bit of metal - not too pleasant. Medium-bodied; Full of carbonation - a lot of malt and a mild sweetness comes up front. Aftertaste shows mild tastes throughout - some alcohol, a lot of malt and a little sugars and hops. Overall, a very mild and refreshing beer. I sampled this 375 mL (odd size) can purchased from the Duty Free section of the airport - near the United gates, in Sydney, Australia in Sydney, NSW on 27-July-2008, sampled on 13-September-2008 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
