Dacrza (1008) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Date tasted: July 11, 2013... Glassware: 22oz. pilsner... Occasion: SHARKNADO....Appearance: clear golden orange body with sporadic effervescence; white head is uneven, rocky and thin--as my wife notes, though, the oil can it emanates from is attractive in the holder’s hand ... Aroma: metallic corn ping; otherwise, adjunct vapors... Palate: oily smooth body--easy drinking with gassy deposits--ugh... Taste: toasted oats and lager malts make a rather empty dry tasting flavor; could be made in an American macro factory for all we the consumer know... Overall: the can instructs one to play Aussie bocce--this alone says much about the beer’s intended patronage and its intentions; befitting Sharknado, this beer goes down smoothly yet predictably, like the Aussie who is gnawed upon only to be sucked away at the film’s end by the impending tornado....I can live with this beer and its "imported" novelty....

25-oz can pour into shaker pint glass from Signal Variety for Australian tick. Appearance is clear pale golden yellow with fair sparkle, finger-width fizzy white head with fair retention and no lacing. Aroma is pilsner malt with light floral yeast. Taste is thin cracker malt with mild white-wine-like yeastiness; slightly metallic. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thick texture, soft-to-average carbonation with crisp, dry finish as taste. Overall, not much to it but very drinkable and thirst-quenching. Less harsh than American domestic macros.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2017 Weak thin head on top of a clear yellow body. There's a slight nutty aroma, more aromatic than most pale lagers. There's virtually no flavor, but it's kind of harsh on the palette. probably tasted better when it was made in Australia. Definitely better when it was made in Canada.

Biggie can pours a pale golden with a large white head. Musky saw dust aroma, malt, grassy hops, and lager yeast. Lightly sweet malt, lager yeast, and light hop. Inoffensive and drinkable.

loscovar (600) - Trieste, ITALY, Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUL 5, 2017
Common aroma and taste of lagers, pale malts, a litte hops, nothing special.

MarcoBasile (451) - DENMARK - JUN 14, 2017
Pale body with a white frothy head. Aroma of pale malts, grain and grass. Taste is malty, sweet corn, tiny bit of hops.

Johnsense (1711) - - JUN 13, 2017
Light clear gold pour, large rocky head, some lacing. Fairly sweet aroma, grainy, straw. Grainy up front, light corn sweetness, light bittering hops. Light spritzy body. It’s ok for a macro.

Wezzielad (42) - Ilkley, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2017
A 4 percent lager in Britain. Compared to Carlimg it’s quite sickly really. You may get a pint that is nice. Honestly this used to be the stuff that I drink when I was 15/16 at the only pub that would serve me, good times. Don’t think this stuff has been bear Australia for a while ( Brewered In Edinburgh and Manchester). I wouldn’t bother with it. It’s okay for a session but it’s usually more expensive than Carling so I would go for the latter.
