Bottle. What a pleasant surprise this was.Lovely bitter flavour that is subtle yet quite tasteful. Far better than I expected. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2016
375 mL bottle. Gold in color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of malt, light fruit esters, noble hops, and biscuits. Taste is of malt, light brown sugar, herbal notes, caramel. Erzengel (8874) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2016
Many thanks to Martin bringing this 375ml-bottle back! Grainy nose. The beer starts smooth and nice malty dry. Not the typical "Bitter Ale" Flavour, but round and crisp. Easy to drink with a smooth and slightly malty body. Not much bitterness, caramel, nice malts. Quite long refreshing and malty-caramelly-dry aromatic aftertaste. minutemat (5662) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2016
Sample @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, June 16, brought by myself, many thanks to Erzengel. Pours clear gold, small white head. Aroma is pale malt, light sweetcorn. Was expecting a Bitter until it was pointed out that in this part of the world bitters are basically lagers. And this is a lager. Not unpleasant, quite smooth with a low bitterness. Needs hot weather to improve the taste tho.

Cerveja refrescante e de sabor um tanto adistrigente. Aroma discreto e cor amarelada e espuma branca. Bamsen78 (5452) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle, carried all the way from Fiji by my former student. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeats, with notes of malt and some light hoppy touches. Bitter flavour of hops, wit heavy estery notes and touches of malt. Bitter aftertaste with estery notes. Well, not a Bitter but a bitter Pale Lager. Thank you, Michelle! fatharey (12) - USA - MAY 13, 2006
i love the little stubbie....great for beach in fiji, helped with the ladies, but everyone was drinking it, not bad taste, try it....lata ALLOVATE (3030) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2015
Love it already. Stumpy and stout bottle voids unnecessary capsizing and breakages; the labels archaic and reminiscent of some of Australia’s most infamous lagers, and the term bitter leads me to believe there may be a little Aussie Pride in there too. So, without further ado, into a tulip it goes. Big gust of CO2 emanates forth as the cap comes off. Aroma is softly metallic and briny but very much dominated by notes of grass and chaff. It settles as one hell of a sexy beast. A radiant deep gold with minute and intermittent carbonation. Head wanes slowly but retains as a rocky white pad that daubs the glass well. Unexpectedly malty and sweet on the palate. Body is medium light with moderate carbonation. Chilled it is clean and crisp in the finish but cracks start to show as it warms. Becomes gammy and sweet with an astringency that is hard to deny. Chilled though it is, well, the beer I expected it to be. Low bitterness with just a hint of peppery spice and fresh mown grass. Not much here but it minces with the best of the lawn-mower beers. Ok! (37,5cL, BB 01/07/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot) BlackHaddock (7410) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Cheers Mat and Erzengel for a chance to try this: Mat and I shared a small (150ml?) sample bottle on 14th June 2016 to help us in our quest to drink around the world. Golden pour with a white topping: light malts rule both the nose and taste. Not a bad Lager at all, good country tick too. Would have prefered to drink it on it’s home turf rather than on a wet evening in Shrewsbury.
