Bierdimpfe (630) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2016
Clear straw color with a good amount of activity. Slightly foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 2-5 minutes, with decent legs. Flavors of corn, barley sweet grains, metal music, and noble spices. Slick full body with crispy carbonation. Soft biscuit and cereal feel. Light finish, lingering corn syrup feel, slightly skunky, with a dash of leafy noble spices. Too sweet and syrupy. Okay freshness. Quite bland, nothing special here. Poorly flavored and overly accessible. Overall mediocre quality craft. Not very rocking, nor having much bust.

milewide (2187) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Decent pale lager. No aroma, but grainy hop flavor. Im too old to feel that AC DC Rock or Bust adds to its image...or will impress my friends.

llcooldave (1207) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Pours crystal clear golden in the glass. Slight floral aroma with a touch of the macro lager nose of cereal and alcohol. Crisp flavor with some citrus and a hint of toast and pizza crust. Overall a nice drinking beer but not too exceptional.

Tezminator (169) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2016
Mild German pale lager. Aroma of grainy malts and hay. Weak taste of grass and moderate bitterness from the hops. Some sweetness and mild metallic, (but not too unpleasant) after taste. Nothing wrong with it.

JanEric (1211) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2016
Can in Benidorm. Metallic, no aroma or taste. Unpleasant bitter. No balance. One of the most awful lagers i have tasted.

rikstar (2555) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2016
0,5l blik onderweg naar Borefts gedeeld. erg grassig en moutig pils bier. totaal geen toegevoegde waarde in de smaakbeleving. Alleen voor de echte fans.

ChadPolenz (1784) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 2A International Pale Lager

AROMA: Sweet grainy malt with slight lemony scent. Clean fermentation profile. Appears to be slightly oxidized. More neutral than bad smelling. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Crystal clear gold; very effervescent. Large white froth with tight bubbles. Decent lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: Moderate amount of grainy sweet blonde/pale malt. Low graham cracker/bready flaovr as well. Quite sweet for the style, though this is probably due to the age of the can as whatever hop character it may have had seems to have faded. There is slight spicy sensation in the background; otherwise bitterness is very low. Lemony sherry taste on the finish. No DMS, diacetyl or acetaldehyde. 14/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium-high CO2 at first but becomes a bit dull after a short time. Aftertaste is fairly clean, but the beer is not refreshing per se. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: For a generic pale lager this is actually pretty good and very drinkable. Can seems to be rather old, but it has endured well. Not sure why AC/DC didnt opt for an Australian-style brew, though. 6/10
