Golden color. Simple aroma, almost stinking. Very simple body and watery final. Drinkable, useless.

Bottle. Kinda creamy and flavoursome, like inhaling snot on a warm summer's day.

well, this just gets worse with age. This is a cheap beer that is brewed with what I can assume is way too much cane sugar/sucrose which produces bad mouthfeel. There is a bit of variance with batches where some produce reasonable head to no head. If drunk at a temperature above 1 degree C, it is almost undrinkable, and more than 6 WILL guarantee a hangover. Absolutely no redeeming features apart from the fact you can guzzle it without feeling too bloated. Oh, the colour is close to a normal beer, so the appearence is OK.

Yellow and not much head. Not much going on either in aroma or flavor. I think it's ok if it's cold and you need something cold and neutrally tasting.

Aroma of wet socks - wait, socks that you treked through a swamp with and didn't wash for 3 months. Pours a light yellow, flat and no head. A palate in the nano measurement scale. Bitter? The only one who's bitter is Tipsy at Presario for subjecting me to another classic.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very little aroma. Clean, slightly dark yellow. Average white head. Bitter, in a bad way, thin, with a taste reminiscent of gas fumes. I thought this was a famous beer and all I can say is I'm glad I didn't buy a 6-pack.

Mmmm, a faint trace of aroma. Looks like a flat lager. Oh, I see - its not a bitter its a "bitter lager". Gassy and with the character of soda water this is thin and poor.

NondeScript watery cantaloups run away with the very timid hops...Only fizz is left with the dumbfoundedness of why they actually call this "bitter...

This is one of the brews that made me apathetic to Australian brewing. Very bitter bit not in a nice Pilsner style and doesn't (taste to me) like it actually contains malt.

Why do so many people drink this! Although it seems to have an appeal to true Aussie blokes, I still don't get it. The morning after, if you so desire, the lingering smell of a pee-trough, and the winds of only something the devil could produce shall be your reward.
