A traditional Australian lager with a clean, crisp taste and a satisfying after-bitterness. XXXX Bitter’s delicate aroma comes from the blending of two hop varieties and a sweeter, fruity tang from the yeast. High drinkability in warm climates.

Once undisputed king of beers here in Queensland it is rarely promoted nowadays, Lion Nathan seem to be intent on replacing it with Toohey’s New. Over the last 5 years the flood of imported and ’licenced’ brands such as Stella Artois, Heineken, Becks and Bavaria has eaten into the XXXX market. It is no longer available on tap in North Queensland although the XXXX Gold mid strength brand is still being promoted heavily.

Probably my favourite XXXX brew. Good mix of bitterness and sweet malt. Still light and refreshing. Get’s a bad wrap, but there are far worse. Beers out there.

375ml Dose. Goldenes Bier mit cremigem Schaum. Getreidiger bitterer Duft. Etwas süsse im Geschmack. Wenig Kohlensäure. Bitteres Finish.

Bottle. Gold, low carbonation, low head. Pleasant enough, a tad sulphur bittering hops take us alone a medium light straw like body to a quick finish with a light grainy and grassy aftertaste. In Queensland spring temperatures I really cannot fault this for being a easy quaffable brew, commercial deScription checks out.

On tap at XXXX Alehouse, Brisbane on 9th September 2015. Amber with thinning white foam and scant lacing. Sweet toffee malt aroma. Malty in-mouth with leafy herbiness. Bittersweet finish. Clean. Zingy mouthfeel and medium body. Not too bad at all.

On Holiday gold-blond colored body with a white head with a fruity hop aroma and a sweet fruity hop dry bitter taste with a bitter finish

Pot at Breakfast Creek. Vague sweet aroma. Highly carbonated, like soft drink! Sharp metallic taste, slightly bitter aftertaste. Acceptable if served ice cold.

czlowiekwiadro (977) - POLAND - JUL 21, 2014
lekki, słodowo biszkoptowy zapach z niewielką sugestią ziół. całkiem przyjemny. złoty, przejrzysty kolor, piana skąpa ale dość trwała. w smaku przypomina bittera, półpełny, biszkoptowy z wyraźną, ziołową, ale nie mocną goryczką. wysycenie średnie. dość przyjemne piwko na upał.
