Bottle from a Coles Liqourland, Melbourne. Poured a clear straw colour with a short-lived fizzy white head and plenty of bubbles. The aroma is skunky cardboard malt, light woody hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry crisp, woody, light floral hop bitter palate and a lingering dry bitter finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. ruigo (3088) - PORTUGAL - SEP 26, 2017
375ml bottle. Hazy golden with a small white head. Malty, caramel, herbal and fruity. Zlotta (3728) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2017
0.375 l bottle from 'Bier & Beer', best before June 2018. Slightly hazy, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, floral and a little fruity aroma of grains, lychee, some honey and a touch of yeast. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter, floral, grassy and a little fruity taste of lots of grains, straw, some honey and a touch of citrus, followed by a short, moderately bitter, grassy-dry finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice! ads135 (4923) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 16, 2017
Okay golden ale. Dry and a little grassy. Has an earthy, strangely empty finish. Tried for the first time back in 2009.

Bottle @ Drover's Dog (1, East). Deep golden color, just slightlt hazy. White head, not much and short retention. Aroma's: herbal hops, light malts, light spice. Retronasal it's malty, grainish, light fruit and light bitter. Flavor is light caramel sweet , a bit fruity, light bitter. Light medium bodied. Mild bitter finish. Bottle could have been a bit fresher (just days from the bb date), but I still liked it, as I did when I occasionally had this in the late 80's.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2017 Bottle at home. Pours cloudy, trying to get as much out without disturbing the pellet. Golden red in colour with bubbles but poor head retention. Smells like my early failed attempts at brewing from a kit. Yeasty with a fruity undertone. I love this beer! Nothing complicated. Marmite flavour maltyness, nicely balanced, too 'sparkling' maybe a hint of earthy bitterness. Lovely simple quirky beer that I wish pubs sold for the session. sebsky (260) - ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2017

Copper,cloudy. Aroma of caramel malt and flowers.
Taste is malty with some fruit. Marcoeloco (1) - - JUL 24, 2017 does not count
This is a very simple honest tasting beer. Basically a pumped up pale ale and for me it ticks all the boxes including price. It shows what can be done with one one hop some good malt and a good yeast. Its been around for a long while and still stands tall as a a great beer.

This is what I always thought beer should taste like, plain and simple. The beer, though, is neither plain nor simple, but full of taste and malty as a good glass of ale should be. No BS to give about aromas or nose. Just good, consistent flavor and satisfaction.
