Served on tap (need to re-rate once buy bottle) - pours with a thin white head, fruity aroma, moderate carbonation, light bitter aftertaste - not much to say about this fairly ordinary lager - not as nice as most other beers in the James Squire line up.
Pours slightly hazy yellow with a smallish head. Sweetish and fruity aroma. Taste is rather similar. Light and fruity sweetness but some crispy citrus and pine flavours too. Slightly watery overall impression. (373ml bottle, from a random liquor store in Sydney) craftyrocker (28) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2017 Score: 3/2/4/1/8. 330mL can from Dan Murphy’s, BB Dec 2017. Also previously had many jugs of this on tap.
Appearance: Like a yellow fizzy lager that cannot maintain a head after pouring. Some lacing.
Aroma: Light citrus and malt. Not much going on.
Taste: Tiny citrus hops. Mostly sweet breadish malt. No passionfruit that the label advertises.
Palate: Watery thin body. Overcarbonation.
Overall: Poor industrial tasting macro beer. It would not help convert any macro drinkers to craft beer. The can is 15mL smaller than the bottle. Have some bread instead. jmgreenuk (9312) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 23, 2017

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2017 On tap at Torquay Hotel. Pours cloudy straw. Fruity nose. Tastes light fruity citris. No bitterness, malt or real hops taste. Just quite pleasant easy, light and fresh drinking. Pretty non-offensive. Better draught than in a can or a bottle, seems more fruity. dnicolaescu (2520) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 2, 2016
CAN 33 CL. Hazy golden, white head. Barely any aroma, just a hint of canned fruit. Dry husky corny malts, with bit of corn syrup sugars behind and a lot of carbonic acid on top. Nasty. Tezminator (225) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2016
Aroma is notes of grain and straw. Mild citrus notes with some pine notes and sweet malts. It is not bad.
