Austbloke's rating

   AROMA 1/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 5/20
Austbloke (10) - - SEP 1, 2005
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.

CurlyJoe (108) - 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.

jmgreenuk (8428) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle at the Brussels Beer Caf, Jalan P Ramlee, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a thin frothy white head. The aroma is malt, light bitter hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a soft hop bitter, dry malt palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

DuffLover (124) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Had to try this on vacation in Australia since the bottle claimed to contain "Australias Finest" beer. Apparently Fosters is just a decoy. Overall not bad for a typical lager.

Skarecrow (448) - 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.

kermis (12037) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle sampled at Brussels Beer Caf in KL center. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, light toffee, grain and light hops. Flavour is above light sweet and light bitter. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Holyfrog (5) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2016 does not count
Awful. What an embarrassment. This should never be representative of Australian Beer. skunky, soy sauce,

whoisghost (193) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2015
Very clear pale yellow with a thick, cream coloured head. Cheap malt and straw on the nose, very muted. Slight honey, dry malts, very slight floral hop bitterness. Reasonably creamy finish, well carbonated and dry.

danjs5 (116) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2016
Remembered what this was like: refreshing when served super cold. Slight malt and bitterness distinguishing this above other mainstream marketed lagers.

LazyPyro (738) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2016
375ml bottle. Clear pale yellow piss colour with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit chemically but theres 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 Australias "finest beer".

nybol (1666) - DENMARK - OCT 11, 2015
En ikke alt for stor oplevelse. En meget almindelig pilsner der nu smager godt nok, men meget konsumagtig.
