A good honest beer for it’s style. Reasonable malt, pours a nice color. Pleasant enough on the nose. One of the best mainstream draughts around and a credit to the Tassie brewers. I’ll list it as one of my favorites and rate it ahead of others such as Carlton draught. Good in the bottle but just a pity there’s not a lot of it around on tap on the mainland. A pretty good drop for sure.

Not really that much to say. A well balanced pale lager with moderate malty character.

Deep golden. Bubbly head. Sweetish and a touch of biscuity malts. Clean, simple malty taste with relatively low bitterness.

drjoeng (1484) - SINGAPORE - DEC 10, 2015
4.7%ABV. Pale lager. Tapped out a light amber blonde. 6°SRM. Nose has some light beery very slightly yeasty aromas. Very pleasing. Easy to see why this is the most popular beer in Tassie. Nice laager type nose with clean sweet malt and grain aromas. No ester-like funk in the nose. Its somehow sweeter and cleaner and with less character at the same time. Clearly well-provisioned, just a function of which yeast is doing what to the malty sugars. Mouthfeel is carbonated. Sudsy. Palate is sweet malt. Barley bread with some nice toffee notes. Not too complex, but a very straightforward honest taste experience, much like the people of western Tasmania. No need for elaborate pretentions. Bitter sweet finish with slightly more hop character than expected in a straight lager. Clean finish, very pleasing. Goes on the list for being an honest straight up well-provisioned commercial brew. Goes on Favorites List!

TedE (1591) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2015
750ml bottle into schooner glass. Distant hop nose. Pale yellow beer with diminishing head. High carbonation. Really zingy on the tongue. Some fruity hop notes, a mild malt finish & that’s about it. Inoffensive.
