1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Suppose to be one of the flagship premium beers in Australia. How it ever got any rating as a premium beer is beyond me.
The battle is lost even before you get this stuff in to your mouth. An off rotting type smell that does nothing to help the palate. Still it does have a good clear golden look with a nice gold label.
All in All probably the worst beer in Australia other then Tooheys Red and its close relation VB.
There is no other Beer on the market which goes any where near it in every respect.
All the so called modern beers are nothing more than fruit drinks which you can buy at the Milk Bar. jann3 (385) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2017
Pours clear straw colour with a small head. Sweetish and malty aroma. Taste is malty too but finishes with some moderate crispy flavour. Medium carbonation. Nothing special but a decent bulk lager anyway. (375ml bottle at the hotel lobby bar in Sydney) sccp1910 (251) - BRAZIL - MAR 8, 2017
Uma lager suave e de sabor marcante. Amarela e de pouca espuma. Cerveja refrescante. R4N5H (1187) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2017
375ml bottle at the SilverKris Lounge, Sydney on 23-Feb-2017. Clear pale amber colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of grain and sweet malt. Light body and heavily carbonated. Taste of malt, bread and herbal spices. Creamy mouthfeel. A drinkable pale lager (if you like that kind of thing). Rubin77 (2133) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 2, 2017

Remembered what this was like: refreshing when served super cold. Slight malt and bitterness distinguishing this above other mainstream marketed lagers. CurlyJoe (243) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2016 Malt and sweet, not a whole lot to it. Very average but a staple at many events. Normally opt for something more interesting. Skarecrow (749) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 24, 2016
375ml bottle BB 6/1/17
Slight grainy aroma.
Light straw color with OK head.
Mild bitterness with thin finish and not much else. Another generic Macro lager.
Ho hum. Holyfrog (5) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2016 does not count
Awful. What an embarrassment.
This should never be representative of Australian Beer.
skunky, soy sauce, LazyPyro (1214) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2016
375ml bottle. Clear pale yellow piss colour with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit chemically but there’s a slightly sweet malty hop aroma there. Taste is much the same slightly sweet malts but with a chemical aftertaste left in the mouth. Watery feel. Average lager really, far from Australia’s "finest beer".
