AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2004
pretty average all round. Golden appearance, with light head. Slightly fruity aroma notes, citrus and pear. flavour is a little dissapointing, banana, and apple present with a slight woodyness.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2003
Sweetish aroma, normal lager appearance with short-lived head. Flavour is like dusty cardboard with a short, dry finish. Agimmick beer that is darned ordinary.

rather nice lager, got it just to try it and was surprised at the quality, nothing mind-blowing just better than expected.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2003
Expecting something terrible I was slightly surprised. Head retention was quite good and the beer a clear gold. Slightly light-struck aroma and not much else. Slight sweetness but overall quite drinkable. Ten times better than VB but nothing too exciting.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2003
5/4: I personally found it rather boring. Clear yellow with small white head. Sweet flavour with slightly astringent hop-like taste too. Not much aroma, bit of woody hops. Thin palate, slightly crisp.

dubs (117) - St Peters, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2003
Rolled the Philly Blunt and toked like George Burns on the Late Show as I sipped on one of these. It tasted great to me but I was quite well zooted: Powerade in the opening, hints of Bubble-O Bill in the finish. Nice crisp filter job too if you give a shit. Groovy man.

Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2002
Pretty boring characterless lager, average body, coarse short lived head. I couldnt really discern any flavour to speak of, not very crisp either, despite commercial description.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2002
It isnt as bad as i thought it might be, but it still isnt that good, light brown in colour, fizzy, a bit sugary and tasted a bit damp.

winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2002
Quite a reasonable, hoppy lager, crisp and refreshing. Will try again soon.
