(Australia) Pale Yellow color with Sm-white Head. Smooth with sweet Malt taste!!! The Palate was watery.. Not the best from Down Under, But not bad. bhensonb (15760) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Bottle that states it was brewed in Australia. Aromas of light fruit and pale malt. Darkish gold color with a decent white head. It is very fruity [for a lager] with not a great deal of bitter. Must be floral hop. One heck of a nice lager that finishes mildly fruity and slightly bitter. It’s even somewhat astringent. A lager that is tastier than some ales.

Can’t work out the provenance of this one. Label states that it is brewed in Germany on behalf of the ‘Australian Brewing Corporation’. Anyway , fairly standard interpretation of a lager. Not too bad. Excellent lift off the nose for the style; albeit the aromas are fairly mundane malt and adjuncts, with some sweetness. Dumb but has a certain appeal. Line and length in the mouth; industrial malt action, a sliver of corny sweetness, and a cut of bitterness on the finish. I hope it’s cheap as it might provide a halfway decent alternative to local industrial beers. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Pale yellow color, aroma and flavor of ainly maly, with a hint of hops, better than American Macro, but not good RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Pours a clear orange into the lager glass with a good deal of head and sticky lacing. The scent was mild hops and floral scents. A thin palate and rather unexciting beer.

bottle. tastes like a lager with honey flavor lightly added. not too bad. It does taste and smell somewhat high quality. FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 I am not much of a lager fan but my one Aussie friend had been wanting me to try this one and bought me a couple of bottles for Christmas. Sampled from a rather cool looking 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brownish-gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was sweet, tangy and a bit yeasty. The flavor was sweet, tangy and lightly fruity with a yeasty undertone. There was a tangy finish. A nice example of a sweeter lager but still not my style. patrick767 (4190) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2007
bottle - Pours dark yellow with a thin white head. It has a light malt aroma and a sweet, malt flavor. There’s little hops to be had in this lightly carbonated, smooth drinking beer. It was as horrible as I thought it might be. cheap (6089) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2007 Pretty cool bottle. Purchased at JR’s beer in rochy, PA. Cost was 42 cents per bottle. I was cruizen the import section and saw this. $10/case. I never had it and it said from australia. Cheapest import on the floor. Not quite pale yellow but it is nothing more than a typical american beer. Has a slight hard industrial liqour smell and flavor as if the alky was added after brewing. Not too bitter, but it does have a flavor that is different than the rest and it lingers on the finish. I think Fosters is much cleaner in taste. This brew is not too good a representative of the economy lager style.

Sweet malty aroma. Sweet malty and slightly spicy flavor. Appearance was the typical pale yellow. What I would call a hot weather beer. Not bad.
