Drunk overlooking the Forster lake system eating oysters and fried squid. It's tropical and stone fruit flavours without being overly malty, as well as good bitterness for a lager made it perfect for this setting. Muggus69 (2831) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2017
375mL can from Booze Bud. BB 13 APR 17
Dark gold body, thick white head.
Decent aroma - stacks of bread crust & toast with hop notes of melon & stonefruit.
Full body, good weight to it, sort of creamy & chewy.
Sweet malty body - slightly nutty, bread crusty, touch of butterscotch diacetyl in there, ripe stonefruits & melons with a woody spice and a decent hit of bitterness.
Interesting take on the humble lager. DavidAust (276) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2016
can to glass. Lacking in flavour. Looks fine in glass, crystal clear amber fluid and white head. Just disappointing in aroma and taste. Nothing special ALLOVATE (3094) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2016

Produces up a radiant, sunny orange with a surging rocky white foam that peaks at two inches and falls messily to suds. Nose is heated and well spiced with prominent pineapple, mango, peach and fruity white wine with just a hint of pine. I’m getting Polish Lager on the nose and palate. Quite heated just brimming upon fusel alcohol. Rounded toffee and lightly medicinal fruit comes through. Moderate bitterness peaks and fades rapidly in the crisp and warming swallow. Medium body and heavy in the stomach with soft, spritzy carbonation. Residually sweet with a muddled cereal hit and sharp spiciness late. I actually do like it, but it seems to drink like something of 7 or 8% ABV. Not exactly sessionable. One was enough! (37,5cL can, BB 31/08/17, Boozebud)
141216. Can from A Point of Difference Liquor. When I think of lager I think of a pale thin watery beer with barely any flavour at all. This beer may have just changed my perception of lagers. While there is still that grainy straw like aroma to the beer it looks unlike most lagers I have seen before. Sunshine orange colour with a white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. A lot fuller in the body than I am used to as well. All in all there is not a lot lagerish about this beer. Finishes with a musky aftertaste. One of the most enjoyable beers of this stye that I have had for a long time.

Pours a clear, light orange with a fair amount of white head. Relatively mild aroma of melon and alcohol. Very fruity for a lager. High-ish ABV mixes well with the fruits. Remains crispy in the mouth. A lager that’s a little bit different, highly recommended. Davros (3362) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours gold with a small head.
Nose shows soft sweet malt, light vegetal characters, spicy hops, biscuit-like notes, banana.
Flavours include more sweet malt, cardboard notes, honey, spicy hops. hawthorne00 (4237) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2016
Can, 8C. Gold with an inch of white head.Aroma of oranges, apricots, light bread, cantaloupe, some apple (hmm). Overt alcohol kicks in on first sip unfortunately. There’s grainy bread and a slightly spicy bitter finish. The fruit gets a little buried. A bit frustrating. Dredd (981) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2016
Pour from the can is light amber with a clean, ligering white head. Aroma is mostly rockmelon. Flavour is more melon with a boozy alcohol patch before the bitterness kicks in.
It is probably one of the better strong lagers out there, but it does have a decent amount of alcohol heat.
