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

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.

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 its servicable. Ginger Man, NYC.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Yellow body. A smooth beer that had a good fruity taste to it. Drank in Melbourne, Australia.

This has to be one of the worst Aussie beers Ive had. Aroma was really off and smelled of creamed corm. Appearance was nice with a deep gold with good head. Mouthfeel was a watery grave mess. Flavors were also a mess with an awfule malt sourness that seemed....rancid? Not sure if that was right, but it was pretty bad. Not that we have to worry about it here in the states, but around the world perhaps its a bit better.

Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes.

Little head and no lacing. No hops evident, the color is a nice gold. Kind of a nasty aftertaste on the palate. The flavor is cool and refreshing right up to the point it leaves the mouth open to the air, then it gets metallic.

Bottle: Smelled yeasty and of plis malts but no hops. Golden with small white head that lasted. Bubbling. Flavor was yeasty and a bit sour. Made me cringe. Not much else to the flavor. Tastes like Budweiser. I could not finish it. Light bodied. Thin. Lively carbination. Overall, like Bud, but smells a little better.
