Bottle - 15/1/11. Golden coloured. Barley and dry grass in the nose. Quite sweet tasting with perhaps a hint of honey. OK beer but not brilliant.

Clean, crisp. A little bit of hop, a little bit of malt - pretty easy going offering really.

Can first, then a bottle: pours as it promises on the label (golden!), with a decently persistent white head. Fruity on the nose and palate, with light caramel notes. Decent ale.

pours golden with a white head (no surprise there), taste is sweet malt with some fruity hop presence, sweet fruity aroma. overall a nice beer on tap, a step up from the standard aussie lager.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2010 pours golden (surprise!) with a nice frothy white head. packed full of tropical aromas, this beer is nice to chill out on, although drinking all night is not recommended as the fruitiness can be sickly after a while.

Can on a Qantasflight. At least it’s the best beer I’ve ever had on a flight. Golden color indeed and white a nice frothy head. Tropical fruits, bready maltiness and some caramel.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2010 I am finding this to be the go-to-beer in most pubs around sydney due to it increasingly being available. Easy drinking. Suttle aromas of flowers. Bit of a hop presence.

Bottle at Cloisters tasting ... Thanks to Barry for this one ... copper ... sweet toffee and ligth orange nose ... light sweet fruits ... soft and easy again a tiny orange hint.

Just a little extra above the mass of mainstream beers in Oz.. Nothing here to make me buy any more.

Tap (Barney Allen’s). Orange, tight white head. When really cold - as it was served - it’s pretty much like any vaguely decent Australian lager. There’s a bit more body from well-defined malt and upon a bit of warming, there’s some earthy and citrus hops on the nose. If you look at it as an alternative to VB it’s good (and I guess that’s what they were going for) but this is nothing much.
