mcberko (19172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
On tap at Burleigh Brewing, pours a clear pale blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out biscuity malt and light herbal notes. Flavour is along the same lines, but is very stripped down. Biscuity malt and a touch of a herbal quality. Weak and uninspired.

jmgreenuk (10076) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 20, 2017
Bottle from Coles Liqourland, Melbourne. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is cardboard malt, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light cardboard mineral malt, watery light woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nice label but that's where it ends.

mkel07 (6429) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2009
330ml bottle. Pale honey colour with a moderate fluffy white head. Average carbonation and no standout aromas, hard to detect anything at all.. Surprisingly it has some flavour with amild bitterness that is easy on the tatse buds.

Davros (3309) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2011
Pours gold with a very small white head.
Nose is massively skunky. Underneath is... nothing.
Flavours show sweet vegetal notes at first before transitioning to cardboard characters. No bitterness.
Carbonation is a bit over the top, body is watery.
I’m somewhat confused as to why Burleigh brewed this?

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2010
Clear pale golden body with short head. Touch of malt and hops on the aroma and the taste with not much else, wasn’t really disappointed as I wasn’t expecting too much.

ALLOVATE (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2012
Love the label.
Admittedly this wasn’t as bad as I had expected but then I did epxect very little. Lively pour produces a bright, thin and translucent pale gold beer with a shortlived, fluffy and loose white head. Pale grains, dried, mown grass, eggy fart and salty crackers sum up the aroma. Soapy, watery thin and well charged in the mouth. Overall it’s very dry with a shallow vegetal sweetness upfront. Light malt, cardboard, grassy, spicy and dry hop note late and into the crisp, short swallow. Nothing but blandness here but a reasonable beer considering the taste has been lagere out of it! (33cL, BB 30/10/12, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

Muggus69 (2748) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2009
330ml bottle.
Golden body, short lived white foam.
Mild malty aroma, hint of floral hop.
Reasonably full body, moderate carbonation, somewhat flabby texture.
Sweet corny malts, hint of apple. I’m thinking diacetyl by the bucket load, as the body ends with a chalky dryness and moderate bitter note.
Seems a bit poorly made, almost had promise.

StevieT (2039) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2015
From a bottle. Pours clear with minimal head, not too bad, pretty smooth, I’d drink it again.

KeefOz (1923) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2016
Poured a clear golden colour with 5mm of white foamy head that retained OK but laced poorly. Carbonation moderate to high with coarse bubbles. Aroma of grainy malt and no obvious hops. Taste sour and tart then grainy; no hops bitterness. Light body, bordering on watery.
Crisp and smooth if drunk cold with a bland finish.
