1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not too good. Australian joke on Americans. Copy of mass market American beer at import price. Asked a few Australians, all told me this beer is NOT popular there.
On tap. Pours a pale biscuity copper gold with a thin head. Aroma: biscuity malt, mild citrus, cardboard, funky notes. Not a pleasant aroma. Taste: biscuity malt, mild caramel, cardboard, grass flavours. Very thin flavoured. Basically is just carbonated water (with too much carbonation). This is as average as a beer can get. ads135 (5235) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 13, 2018
Not a great lager, but not the worst either. Mild and very light. Light grassy bitterness at the end. Tried for the first time in 2007. Daboch (269) - Gdansk, POLAND - DEC 22, 2017
Jasnozłociste piwo z obfitą pianą która dość długo się utrzymuje. Aromat i smak nijaki lekko słodowy, posmak mokrego kartonu. Żadna rewelacja, typowy lager z browaru koncernowego. Pić można tylko w celu ugaszenia silnego pragnienia nohopspleez (91) - Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2017

no, Im not going to discuss the floral notes and other "advocate" style goofyness.
drink beer, enjoy it and leave the knitting to granny. Bill Becker (2054) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - DEC 7, 2017
From Aug 2008
750ML can "brewed by" Oil Can Breweries Albany GA and Fort Worth TX.
It pours a straw gold with a good head of foam that lasts and there's some good lacing. A decent looking brew in the glass.
The smell has a perfumy nose of corn and sweet malt that also has some bitterness in it. Not too bad.
The taste has notes of corn, sweet malt, and a hop bitterness floating around in the background that offsets the sweetish tones and it works.
Mouthfeel is light but I expect that in a example of the style; carbonation is medium as opposed to heavy for the style and I like that; it finishes with a semi sweetness that makes me want to drink some more. And more I will drink, no problem.
Ok, this isn't the best example of the style out there but it sure is pleasing and easy drinking enough. Though I never reviewed the brew when it was contract brewed in Canada, this US version doesn't stray much from the path if at all. This is an ok, middle of the road brew that shouldn't offend anyone's palate because, frankly, the flavours *aren't* offensive. It is decent and a good alternative if you are taking a break from big, strongly flavoured microbrews. It helps to put things in proper perspective. ;^)

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2017 easy to drink with no fruit / hop aroma but not a very imaginative lager though seem popular in England JefVerstraete (3827) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2017
Dull, easy drinkable, light sweet lager. Nothing wrong but very uninspiring and boring beer. Rhyfelwr (6) - SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2017 does not count
Frequently called "Australian piss" in Scottish pubs. Easy drink watery lager with minimal taste. Hints of bread and metallic tones. Pours medium yellow with heavy carbonation. Widely available on tap for cheap. It's most positive aspect is the price and availability.
