Too fizzy, with a lack of flavour I was expecting from this style of beer. I am not an expert in rating qualities of beer, but I can’t workout what temperature this should be served at. The bottle was cold, but the beer was really gassy and metallic. Maybe it should be served warmer to help improve what little flavour it had. I think I was ripped off at $21 for a six pack. If I had known that Fosters had a hand in it I would have surely passed.

macca147 (190) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2017
On tap at Prince Hotel, Kirrawee. Pours a bronze gold with a lingering white head. Aroma: Biscuity malt, pine, caramel, grass, mild citrus notes. Taste: Biscuity malts dominate the flavour balance. Mild caramel and citrus flavours. Nice flavour balance, smooth consistency. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A lingering bitterness dominates the back end of the beer. Slight watery texture at the back end. Easy drinking, and definitely sessionable, but not particularly interesting or unique. Would order this over the other mainstream Australian pale ales, but there are definitely many more interesting Australian pale ales out there.

jmgreenuk (9459) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 31, 2017
Tap at the Birmingham Hotel, Melbourne. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is grainy malt, light woody hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light, watery, skunky malt, light dry floral hop bitter palate and a lingering somewhat unpleasant bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. Not the most pleasant drinking experience I’ve had and one that I won’t repeat any time ever! The lingering bitterness in the finish simply prolonged the agony.

bonfirestation (3) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2017 does not count
Clear golden appearance with large string carbonation. Nice floral hops aroma. Upfront hops taste with balanced bitterness, short lived tho and left with little aftertaste and a watery mouth feel. Smells better then it tastes but still a good beer.

nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2017
The aroma is mild with just plain hops and malt. The appearance is Amber gold. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall drinkable but not much character.

Session beer for the casual beer drinker, lacking style and substance with a watery finish but one can drink it fast and enjoy their night ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GuideDogSaint (1502) - Xiamen, CHINA - APR 14, 2017
345ml bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours clear golden amber with a white head. Initially had a nice floral aroma but it faded. Some malt and hops. Bitter finish. Thin. Remember having this on tap in Sydney a few years ago and being disappointed then.

2.3
Samtzu (450) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - APR 1, 2017
Tap pour. Pours a solid gold with no head. Slight yeastie nose. Small hint of bitterness with a crisp taste. Almost seems more like a lager.

Appearance: crisp light amber with decent head Aroma: citrus, pine, hops, fresh Mouthfeel: medium mouthfeel and carbonation Taste: citurs, pine fruits. Low malt flavours. Clean bitterness on after taste
