COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A European style lager brewed from the finest quality pilsner malts. This beer is fermented at a lower temperature than most Australian lagers, and employs an extended maturation period. These combine together with a mixture of kettle and late hopping to yield a crisp pale lager

The aroma is sweet malt and light grassy hops. The appearance is light pale gold with a nice head. The flavor is corn malt and moderate hop bitterness. The palate is better than most macro lagers but not great. I think this is a pretty average beer.

Goddamn this is good one of my favorite beers indeed.Too bad its so expensive save drinking this for a special occasion, one of the few occasions you see it on tap in SA.

Pour is a clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is grassy and corny. Flavor is typical lager with some malts and wet paper taste. Watery lager is all it is.

Bottle. This beer is what it is. Poured a medium sized white fizzy head that mostly diminished, very little lacing, fizzy carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Nose was corn, some malt and some hops. Flavor was somewhat sweet, malty and slightly bitter. Tingly mouthfeel and light body. Like I said earlier, this beer is what it is.

Served cold in a lager glass. Standard watered down urine colour with a light, fluffy 1 1/2-2 inch white head. O.K. grassy flavour with a bit of fruit in the background but altogether too watery.

Light yellow colored, medium sized white head. Fruity, sweet and slightly estery aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is also slightly boring: fruits, sweetness and some esters. Aftertaste has mild dryness with hops.

Always get stuck drinking this rubbish at Randwick race days, sponsored by San Miguel and thats the only two choices. Still, it manages to stop me getting too out of it because I can’t stand to drink too much. Smells off, looks like urine and lacking distinctive taste.

Not bad, nice clean taste but not as good as the cheaper Boags Draught. Better than Cascade Premium.

slight grassy aroma, not much other then that. maybe a slight step above most pale lagers, but essentially the same thing. this one is fairly smooth and drinkable, but taste is a sweet grassy, slight hint of citrus.

Aurelius (5496) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Stinky, maizy, very lightly floral aroma. Green twistoff, pale yellow beer earns low AP marks. plain malty flavor, lightly bitter, fairly sweet. Suprised me because I thought it was going to suck badly. Lightly bitter, quick finish. Drink it cold and it’s servicable. Ginger Man, NYC.
