KeefOz (1719) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle/stubbie. Poured a crystal clear golden colour with a one-finger bright white foamy head that retained very well and laced OK. Carbonation very high with coarse bubbles giving a coarse mouthfeel. Aroma of metal and a subtle hint of grain; no obvious hops. Taste is bland with a hint of metal, no real bitterness and with a slight acrid tartness. Light, very thin and watery. Crisp, smooth and clean if cold and with a slightly acrid tartness on the finish that becomes more pronounced as it warms. Im sure its marginally better on tap.

LazyPyro (836) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a small, lasting white head, a little lacing left behind. Aroma is mildly hoppy, and lightly sweet pale malt. Flavour is slightly sweet malts, grains, the aftertase has a little citric/hoppy bitterness. Not a great lager but at least its better than Carlton Crown. Got worse as it warmed up so drink it quick.

Went to a really nice heritage pub in the country, and this was the best I could do. Grainy industrial aroma, appley and fusely. Light amber colour. Old school grainy taste... But its ice cold, right. Sweet and maybe a bit watery in the finish.

(Stubbie bottle) Brought to us from the fine gents @ Carlton United - who gave the world the awesome and iconic VB . Oh sure , the chemicals , vomit and pissy notes that I love in Victoria Bitter were evident but maybe just lacking the gross uniting sweetness that makes VB good , this was more sour an lactic that I like in easy drinking piss swill . I drank this while sadly watching the Aussies knock England outta the rugby World Cup .

ladnewton (1879) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2015
On tap at Alexandra Hotel, Leura, Blue Mountains NSW on 14th September 2015. Gold with lasting shallow white foam and no lacing. Sweet toffee aroma. light citrus and sweet grape flavour in-mouth. Lightly floral and fruity finish. Light mouthfeel and insubstantial body, however I found the ale refreshing after a walk in the Blue Mountains.

A horror beer. If its the only option make sure this piss is cold to get it down. Be prepared for a headache the next day.

Often the only option. Tinny taste, best part is the questions under the cap.

anstei (1718) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Tap. Pours clear golden with a small head. Canny aroma and taste. Slight hints of lager characteristics if you look carefully, but mostly it?s water with bubbles and alcohol.
