On tap at Cascade. Clear golden with a short-lived head. Clean, somewhat metallic taste. Not a premium beer by many peoples standards, but a perfectly drinkable standby. lrkmilani (125) - BRAZIL - JAN 5, 2016
Easy drinkability. Very light beer. It is noticeable an industrialized beer.

5.2%ABV. Pale Lager.
This tapped out a deep gold. 6°SRM.
Nose had some clean beery aromas, lager-like with pale malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel was watery. Palate had some pleasant smokiness with pale malt sweetness and a faint bitterness of raw peanut skins.
Finish is clean, light and abbreviated with some faint herbal notes.
A good and proud lager with more than an interesting backstory.

Pours golden with small white head that quickly vanish. Aromas of grain and some spices. Light body, medium carbonation. Short sweet finish. Nothing to talk about here. TedE (1392) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2015
375ml bottle into schooner glass. Light caramel nose. Amber beer with diminished head. A few bubbles. Watery mouthfeel with abrupt sour malt finish. The blurb on the bottle is describing a completely different beer to what I’m drinking, something wrong here. Blurb or beer?

Tasted 9/9/2014 Alice Springs Airport. BB 17 Jun 14. Poured a clear amber with a few millimetres of white bubbles that diminished quickly to nothing. Nil lacing. Carbonation low and coarse. Aroma subtly of sweetish malt and possible citrus; malt intensifies as beer warms. Taste with moderate level of spicy hops and malt sweetness; malt intensifies as beer warms. Light body. Clean, crisp, smooth with lingering low level bitterness. Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2014

Pours golden with a big fluffy head. Sweet hop aroma. Nice crisp body with a sweet apple cider like sweetness. Quite a dry bitter hop bite at the end.
