This is a very average beer. However, if you are on a tight budget is very good value for money - how many beers do you see for less than AU$25 per carton??

330ml bottle. Poured a very thin pale yellow with absolutely no head at all. There was very little aroma to speak of and the taste was watery and thin - no substance to this beer at all.

Awful corn fired watery mess with a nasty metallic aftertaste. Not even a proper kick due to low ABV. Cheap and grainy. Bad.

...bottle. Didn’t realize this was a mid-strenther, but couldn’t really tell. Watery, light bodied mouthfeel, with hints of malt. Other than that, nothing, it was cheap, but still not really worth it because it has no alcohol, there are other better choices if you just want to get ripped.

Sorry Sully from Stanmore. This beer is very ordinary but I’m reasonably sure that it is not mid-strength. I’m drinking one at the moment (oh dear!) and it says 5% alc. vol.

bottled. standard yellow, fizzy stuff. light body, cardboard, a hint of bitterness, that’s all

Mid strength beers are the lost soul of the beer world. They meander from pub to pub trying to ply their wares to those drinkers who can’t choose between full strength and light. At this ABV you are getting one standard drink which means that the allure for designated drivers is not there either. In keeping with the XXXX style of midstrength this one is called gold, because it is valuable or desirable? No, more likely that it is metallic and would appeal to sheilas.

This beer is the midstrength version of the Haagens regular malt lager, and I COULDN’T PICK OUT A DIFFERENCE! Pale golden, clear, medium head. Pretty boring. Sweet malt is really all you get for flavour (the same as all corn-adjunct, over-processed pale lagers on the market). I wouldn’t choose to drink it again if an alternative were available, but I wouldn’t turn it down if the beerfridge was empty on a Friday night. This is my standard review for all "two-star-or-less" piss. Surprising, given this is supposed to be from an "independent brewer"-- it doesn’t taste much different from the macro brewers lagers.
