The aroma is lightly sweet, crisp, and soft in the nose. The. Lager pours pure clear straw with a decent bubbly head. The flavor is uncommonly smooth, no bitter bite and not crisp but good to drink under the right circumstances. Maybe a summer day in PA, or an afternoon in Tasmania.

A very mild lager. I thought it was alright and actually pretty interesting because it had practically no aftertaste. The reason I am writing this review, however, is that my wife LOVES this beer. In fact, this is the only beer she actually enjoys. She usually only drinks red wine and hasn’t had more than a sip of any beer since college. But when I brought home 6 of the Pure she finished two bottles. She said she could drink it because it wasn’t bitter and didn’t have the aftertaste. Just something to keep in mind......

Uma lager envolvente, sabor um tanto adistrigente. Cor amarela e espuma branca...

Light hoppy aroma, slightly stale. Clear pale golden colour with ok head. Very bland taste, with little to no finish. Light body with high carbonation.

Bottle 33 cl at Boag’s Brewery and Centre For Beer Lovers, Launceston, Tas. Sampled on August 5, 2013.
Clear golden color, white head. Malty, crisp, clean taste. Malty aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Sweet, malty scent.

So I’m only the third person is the US to rate this. Cool. Pours a clear light golden color with a little amber present and a thick white head. Aroma is of your typical main stream imported lager. Has a skunked malt and hop aroma with some carn. Flavor is that skunked malt taste and a little hop bite. Bringing up the back end is aluminum and grain. Has an aluminum malt and hop finish. I must admit; I was expecting a little worse but this one is better than, say, Carlsberg.

Dredd (932) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2009
Well, this is reactionary marketing at best, this is packaged to take on VB Raw Lager (which was made to take on Kirin First Press & Backs). Anyway, aroma is a bit skunky, pour is light amber with white head. Flavour is a light slight citrus with a slight bitterness to the finish. To demonstrate how similar this is to the VB raw lager, side by side, they look and almost taste the same. If it weren’t for the slight skunk to the Pure, i would have sworn they were from the same brewery. Would I buy this? Well since the VB is considerably cheaper and is a larger bottle no. Me too marketing at it’s finest.

Abit like a bad Steinlager. Pale yellow and straw with lots of fizz. Not the best but ok. Grain tastes a bit on the cheap corn side.

muffel (150) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2011
Bottle 0.33L. Clear pale golden color with big head that disappears quickly. Some carbonation. Sweet malts, grain, some bitterness, but overall rather mild taste. Surprisingly almost no aftertaste. Very different from other lagers I’ve had, but can’t say it’s something I need to try again.
