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

Pours a spritzy darkish golden colour with frothy white head. Aroma of toasted malt and some herb grass hops. Palate is quite nice and rounded with some typical POR bitterness and flavour characteristics. A finishes quite sweet with evidence of dms.

prawlie (1675) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2017
Bottle. Soft, sweet hop aroma. Crisp, but over sweet, and quite plain. Its not the worst lager, but its certainly not troubling the best. Overall, a bit 'meh'.

jaghana (6283) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 25, 2017
Bottle 375ml, brought back from my sister many thanks. A clear yellow beer with good head. Nose is nutty very lager like, grain notes. Aroma is on grain and wet paper, low body, quite boring, dusty hops, no much more to say.

2.7
emincems (119) - TURKEY - AUG 24, 2017
clear golden color with small head. foam needs more duration, but it leaves very thin cover which is enough to protect. aroma is slight corn and herbal hops. taste is not complex, standart lager. malt sweetness is leading, but finish is more balanced. light body, moderate carbonation. soft on palate. not special, but this is drinkable summer lager.

1.4
MarcoBasile (467) - DENMARK - JUN 15, 2017
Pours golden with a white frothy head. Light aroma. Grain, malts and slightly skunked. (Damn green bottles). Taste is equally as light. This is Australia’s equivalent to Coors Light.

2.9
PapaCanard (177) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 7, 2017
Bière plutôt aqueuse d’un blond assez clair. Se bout facilement. Peu de goût ce qui est dommage. Reste néanmoins une bière agréable à boire après une journée de travail. Rafraîchissante.

2.5
OnTheTrail (583) - 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.
