In its catagory as a large commercial beer, this is my second prefered. Loverly colour but not pale or golden as many in here say. Very poor head retention. Perfect mouthfeel. Right amount of bitterness. very flat flavour but better than most of the others. It is not a home brew or a craft brew. Dont expect it to be. It should be judged in its class and if done so, comes out pretty good. Nice experience and refreshing.

can from a liquorland in newcastle. dull pale golden, minimal head but plenty of fizz; industrial aroma, some light cordial fruitiness, tinny bitterness; barely drinkable

330ml can into schooner glass. NOT made by Boags, can says Made in Vietnam for Australian Beer Connoisseurs. Smells of sweet corn and bread. Amber beer with a few bubbles, derisory white head which becomes a film. Light body, quite sweet. Finish is mildly metallic with stale cardboard and distant sugar. Ive had much worse.

From a bottle. Pours clear gold with a tinned fruit aroma, watery mouth feel and bland taste.

Bought a cartoon of cans because they were well priced. But this beer has absolutely no aroma & no taste wouldnt buy it again.

Next to no nose. Nice straw colour with a cleanish finish with a little bight.

Bif (2121) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle- Pours a clear golden color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing. Fairly mild aroma of grain with a bit of malt sweetness and just a trace of citrus Taste of some malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, fairly crisp, quite smooth and a bit refreshing. Decent lager that is non-offensive. Good session beer. Goes down easy on a hot day.

Bottle- Im just updating my records. Great name, but a very boring beer, lacking in any flavours or aromas.

Bottle in Brisbane. Another boring pale lager. Aromas of hay, and hints of citrus. Taste is sweet, and short-lived. Palate is thin and watery. Yellow, with no head.

375ml bottle. Pours a clear, pallid yellow, with a tiny and rapidly fading white head, thus looking like just another dull pale lager. Looks can be deceiving, but in the case of this beer they are extremely accurate. This is just another dull pale lager. Weak grain notes on the nose, with some wet grass and cardboard. Metallic, stale hops lead into overly acidic lemon, before fading into a finish that is disturbingly reminiscent of a grease-soaked pizza box. Curses to whoever it was left two of these in my fridge - Ive still got another one to go! As an additional note, whilst I am 100% certain that this is the same beer, my bottles were brewed in Vietnam, not Tasmania.
