Golden with foamy white head. Nice mild malt aroma slight hoppiness . Mouth feel is lively, lots of carbonation. Flavor is fresh with good overtones of sweetness. Lingering bitterness and slightly sour aftertaste. Tastes like a beer that a microbrewery might make in an effort to appeal to a larger market. Overall, quite good for the style, so I’ll give it a high rating. A great lager/pilsner for everyday drinking. Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2006
Surprisingly clean and fresh for a small time bottled lager. I had this in comparison with two german pils’ and this really stood up well. Nice acid balance, soft palate, a mild hop presence, just seemed surprisingly well rounded. Slightly on the sweet side but otherwise pretty good. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 22, 2006
Another bottle from Poperinge’s mysterious sources. Fluffy head. Light gold colour. Noticeable light grass and cookie aroma. Doesn’t have the bite I like with a Pilsener. A lightly sweet finish but not an overuse of malt. highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2006
Above-average thirst quencher, not far off being a decent drop. Had a slight haze to it despite being filtered. Pale gold, moderate head, reasonable retention. Rather a shy aroma, soft and soapy. Has some Saaz dustiness and heavily watered lime cordial. Has a bit of body for the style. Very rounded and softly fruity - grapefruit and lime, with a hint of spice buzz in the finish. Quenching palate. Could imagine seeing a few of these off in summer. The more I drank, the more I liked it.

An unexceptional but reasanbly drinkable beer that is more of a pils than a Pale Lager for me.
It is a bit one dimensional and needs a malt boost to hype it up

Strength of hops in the aftertaste is very distinct. The barley is pretty distinct too. Thought pilsners are not quite my thing Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2007
Bottled, at the Australian Hotel, Sydney Australia. mkel07 (6212) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2008
Bright golden larger, with an energetic head. Sharp bitter flavour, with a snappiness about it. Moderate length on the palate. Just one of the several thousand beers had with the old-man and younger bro. April 2006.
330ml bottle. An okay lager with a large white frothy head and pleaseant aftertaste. Tastes better the more you drink out of the glass. Medium bodied and amber in colour. ALLOVATE (3048) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2012
Tried back in September 2010.
An odd amount of proteins in suspension once it settled in the glass, held there by the finest, most minute carbonation I have ever seen. A sunny, yellow straw and just shy of bright with a snow-white, sudsy white cap that is well retained. Grainbed nose with hints of damp chaff and fresh mown grass. Pleasant vanillin, doughy sweet front in the mouth with a malty mid-palate sprinkled with lemon-pepper. Medium-light in body, not as delicate as a Pilsner should be yet the spritzy carbonation has it bouncing across the tongue with haste. Dusty, herbal finish, subtle bitterness with a crisp edge and only a short waft of hop and malt to linger. This isn’t in the best of form showing signs of deterioration, but still goes down a treat. Fresh it might just be a cracker. (33cL, BB 25/05/10, Dan Murphy’s Balcatta)
