375ml can into glass. 4.8% From bottlo in Sorell, Tasmania. Highly carbonated yellow beer with fluffy white head. Nose is tin and cooked vegetables. Sharp zingy mouthfeel. Taste is sweet and tinny. Some malt is noticeable but the finish is pure Aussie macro (i.e. tin & vegetables). These ’Tassie-only’ macro lagers all seem to be much sweeter than their mainland equivalents. drjoeng (1230) - SINGAPORE - DEC 11, 2015
4.4%ABV. Pale Lager
Tapped out gold. 5°SRM.
Nose is just beery good!
Mouthfeel is sudsy. There is a nice thick beery palate of pale malts and wheat. The sourness in palate could be millet or sorghum.
Nice clean finish. I think I would like to put this on the list for the following reasons:
1. I had it on tap as a draught which apparently is available no where else except in Tassie.
2. It represents a Tassie tradition, and although based on taste, may not be the equal of more thoughtful, creative or elevated contemporary brews, is still the workaday local beer on tap for cheap and has been helping generations of working Tasmanians go home with a bit more home after a long day.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2016 Bottle. Clear, golden, minimal head, white foam, lightly bitter, light body, soft carbonation, & abrupt finish. DylansDad (639) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 7, 2015
Lemony grassy water sitting atop an insipid malt, but still, I’d drink this over a Stella. RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 12, 2014
There was an open bottle around so i sampled it. Pretty devoid of flavour, very light bodied, virtually no malt flavour or hop aroma. Blah.

Oh god why did I bother? I dislike commercial lager at the best of times.... This bilge leaves a cloying stale yeasty taste. Nasty. Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2007
Orangy gold with a frothy white head. Medium carbonation and body. Sweet and malty. Drinkable but nothing special. mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
Golden pale colour with a low white head. Clean and crisp. Sweet, but no real defining flavours. Not a memorable lager, but a good standard for the region. jkm (235) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2007
Pale gold in colour with a thin white head. Moderately bitter. Thin bodied and watery. Short dry and slightly metalic finish. Nothing special in the flavour department but a not bad lager. 375ml brown glass bottle. farmboy (218) - Barwon Heads, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Can only get this stuff in Tassie, and usuall only around Hobart. Unremarkable beer that is by no means offensive but by no means a taste sensation either. Was the brewery's most popular beer 10 years ago but since been well overtaken by just about everything else, including Cascade Draught, which is now the brewery's best selling beer in Tasmania.
