What demon from hell created this? It has a putrid chemical taste that makes even VB taste good. A sickly claw at the back of your mouth starts the taste followed by a robust lingering taste of vomit. The vomit is complex and swirls around the palate before finishing up as metal shavings. Truely dire.

On tap. Pours gold. Lots of sharp vinegar acidity, little sweet syrup, not much of anything else. It's pretty bad. richcatch (1) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2017 does not count
Brilliant flavour, no bitterness, wonderful after taste, leaving you wanting more. This is ’off-the-wood’ only. Bottle/can not same with can having aluminium taste that’s not favourable. rchung (7) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2017 does not count
Very malty body, caramel notes, intense aroma. Frothy head. Light sweetness

Clear golden with a smallish head. Light malty aroma. Taste is very mild and malty too. Just a very faint touch of hops. Low carbonation. Nothing special, but goes well as a simple thirst quencher like most bulk lagers. (Tap at SYD airport) macca147 (736) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2017
On tap. Pours a straw gold with white head. Aroma: Malts dominate. Not much else. Not particularly aromatic. Taste: Malts dominate. Very mild citrus flavour. Mild earthy/metallic flavour. Moderate to strong carbonation. Bitterness lingers on the palate. Not a pleasant brew in my mind. Over carbonated and watery in texture. Camons (13497) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2017
Draught @ Sydney Airport. Pours pale yellow with an offwhite head. Aroma of light malt, grain, light sweetness, light hay. Flavor is sweet, malt, grain, hay. Thin watery body, lively carbonation. Served way to cold so wasnt that bad to drink. 130317 jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2017
A few drafts and bottles throughout Sydney. Light, crisp mouthfeel with notes of spice, pale malt, crisp grass and vitamins. Eh... CurlyJoe (383) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2016
Tank Beer at Plough Inn, Brisbane. A little smoother than the bottled variety, but not much else to say. Metallic aroma, a touch of bitterness to taste, and lightly carbonated in the mouth.
