Available only in Tasmaina, so I had to try it. Really hard to tease out much difference between this and the lager. Maybe a little maltier, but ultimately its all grainy cereal thats been overcooked. As others have stated already, this isnt a true bitter by a long shot, more of a standard lawnmower beer.

Tried at Cascade Brewery not a lot of difference between the lager. Light golden body, a little sweeter maybe, drinkable and not much else.

A-- Poured a clear, golden straw color. Lots of small and medium sized carbonation bubbles that stream from the bottom of the glass. half finger of bright white head that almost instantly went to a thin white collar. S-- Slight grassy and bread notes. Not the heavy metallic smell that VB, Tooheys New, MB, or XXXX have. Very faint smell and quite clean. T-- Sweet bread, grass and citrus. Very clean and crisp. Massive improvement over any of the mainland Australia Bitters. Nothing massive by any stretch but in reality a good soda water with some malt and hops. M-- Clean, crisp, thin, and light. Light bodied and lots of carbonation. More like soda water metallic but that is not a bad thing at all. A little bloating due to the high carbonation but not all that bad. O-- Suitable replacement for sparkling water. Not much wrong with this and not much that just says have more of me. Leaps and bounds better than the normal Aussie "bitter" beers. Just a clean refreshing beer with not a lot of other stuff.

Oh wow, I get to be the first to review this. What an honour, I can be the first to discuss its body, hop aroma, balance of malt to bitterness and all those other words that I need to include to make sure that ratebeer lets me make a valid assessment. The only bugger is that none of these qualities apply to this beer. Who drinks it? If this is a family beer perhaps half of Tasmania, but not me. Fiji Bitter and a Carlton Sterling blend spring to mind.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2003
MGC under a medium small medium lasting snowy white head. Faint cornmeal malt and stale hops aroma. Thinnish light fizzy body. Light bitter hops and corn flavoured adjuncts. You can't normally get this in Western Australian and twas brought all the way across the country by my better half, Greater love hath no wife than to hunt for crap unrated beers while on her holidays in Tassie.

drjoeng (1057) - SINGAPORE - DEC 11, 2015
4.9%ABV. Pale Lager. Tapped out a rich clear gold. 6 SRM. Mouthfeel was sudsy and smooth. Quite light. Palate had nice pale malt sweetness that was pronounced but a little jaggedly balanced by hop bitterness which was a little two dimensional for me to be very interesting. Finish is brief clean plant-like. Quite a pleasant and easily quaffable beer. Approachable.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUN 25, 2004
Had quite a few of these in a bar in Kings Cross, Sydney, Australia. Not very good. Tastes like macrobrewed Amerian crap. Not even bitter really. They aimed and missed with this one.

Orange/gold with thin white head. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet, malty with a little more bitterness than the cascade lager. Another average Australian lager.

Pale gold in colour with average to high carbonation. Thin and rapidly disapearing white head. Fizzy mouthfeel. Watery. Quite sweet as pale lagers go. Moderately bitter. Nothing special. - 375ml brown glass bottle.
