a nice, easy drinking draught for when you want something a bit different to XXXX bitter but want to stick with XXXX... Bribieboy (11) - Bribie Island Queensland, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2008
Easy drinking, lightly carbonated beer which is particularly refreshing in the winter. Not recommended for afficianados of European style Pilsners as it has dark and earthy characteristics that were common in Australian beers such as Tooheys from the 1950s and 1960s.
Unfortunately the strength has been reduced from 4.8% ABV to 4.5%. Not available outside Queensland as far as I know.
By the way, this beer is not XXXX bitter, it is a different beer, with a red and yellow label and is quite different to any XXXX beers brewed overseas on licence. Beerveteran (1) - Caloundra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2008 does not count
No nonsense earthy beer with pleasant after taste, especially good on a hot day after hard work or play. Gone out of production (for now) but still some around.
