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

Strykzone's rating

Strykzone (7193) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2006
This beer looks like a champagne in its color and in its carbonation. It is clear enough to see the carbonation in action. There is a thin white head and an oily lacing. That lacing adds a creaminess to the mouth feel. Flavor here is very muted but is mostly dry malt and corn. There is the slightest taste of apples and a tiny bit of bitterness late, but again, flavor is muted here. This beer is very drinkable and straightforward. Just dont look for much excitement. But then it is a pale lager.

OnTheTrail (469) - Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2017
Pours clear very light yellow, slight whit head. + is malt, slight sour apple, typical pale lager. Flavor is lightly malty, touch of hops. Light mouthfeel. Typical for the style, nothing special, sessionable enough, quenching after a hot bike ride.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Aroma - spicy hops and cereal malt. Appearance - the body is a clean pale, with some nucleation. The head is white, and around 2/3". The head fades into a foam. Some decent lacing. Taste - has a cereal like malt. Hops are spicy. Palate - light body, smooth texture, the carbonation is average, the finish is crisp and dry.

Steffan (71) - WALES - JUL 29, 2016
Good two finger head, malty character, taste a bit of corn syrup, grain then a slightly bitter follow through. Easy on the palate. Overall a solid fullish lager. I quite liked it.

BlackHaddock (6986) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
375ml bottle at the July 2016 Shrewsbury Bottle Share meeting: cheers Mat. Bright, clean and clear golden body with a fast fading white head. Corn led aroma and taste, but not all bad, as it tasted OK, if a little on the sweet side.

minutemat (5146) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
330ml bottle from Discount Supermarket, Cardiff. Pours clear gold, white head. Sweetcorn / syrup aroma. Taste isnt actually that bad, nicely balanced with a mild sweetness, low bitterness and no off-flavours. Would have again.

KeefOz (1786) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2016
BB 13/10/16. Poured a crystal clear golden mid-amber colour with a one- to two-finger bright white frothy head that retained very well and laced well as rings. Aroma of grain and hints of malt; no obvious hops. taste of slightly sweet citrus; no real bitterness; a bit sour as it warms. Light body. Crisp, clean, smooth and refreshing with a moderate length slightly sweet finish. decent enough while cold.

Jow (3824) - New York, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Havent had one of these since college down under back around turn of century and since pale lagers go well with Indian food ordered. Norma golden colored. Nose is faint hops and light grains. Tastes of grains, hint of piney hops, touch of malt. No off flavors and refreshing enough for what it is.
