Nothing special about this. The smell was very pleasing or distinctive. The taste was well over powering with carbonation and a bit of a metallic aftertaste and this was from a draft.

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.

On tap at shit pub. Medium gold with residing bubbles and foam. Scent is scentless. Taste is nice, lightly fruity Pilsen. Finish a little harsh, a little cereal malt. Good.

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.

camay1997 (75) - patton, California, USA - AUG 11, 2017
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.

Common aroma and taste of lagers, pale malts, a litte hops, nothing special.
