Bif (2279) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Pours a hazy straw color with a small head that fades quickly with no real lacing. Aroma of citrus, fruit and musty grain. Taste has a citrus bit with a trace of malt sweetness and grain. Has an acidic bitterness that just seems to linger. Light body and crisp but not well balanced. I suspect this beer is well beyond its "best by" date.

ALLOVATE (3048) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2013
Had the pleasure of trying this one on many and occasion and am still to find a fresh batch. Outdated but marked with a ’bottled on’ doesn’t help, maybe the bottlo’s could get these in the bargain long before its first 6 months on the shelf. Anyways, produces up with all the mannerisms of Deutsche weissbier; towering plume of white foam atop a muddy sandy gold body with highly audible carbonation. Yeasty, pasty, sorghum-esque nose with a forgiving hint of honey and orange marmalade. Honey dominates the palate with again that bready, pasty grain leavened by far too much yeast. Soapy backdrop and slick finish has a buttery diacetyl tinge to it. Honey in the finish. Dirty, washy mouthfeel with foamy carbonation. All esters, malt and hop lost this is just a messy lager if it ever was one. I still want for that fresh sample but, like the end of the rainbow, it is forever just beyond me! (33cL, bottled on 28/09/12, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

Very hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Crisp semi dry palate. Light pale malt. Minerals and a trace of orange hop. Whisper of honey before the crisp finish. Nice palate but the beer is like fresh air!

clear straw yellow with a quick fading bright white head. Metallic hops, malt and lemon Follows nose but with a lemon tartness. Clean and dry with too much carbonation and lemon tartness. Decent but needs work

crabpeople (1) - Mclaren Flat, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2012 does not count
Bland and watery with no apparent aroma or mouth feel. A very ordinary beer from Mclaten Vale.

Not to my taste - unpleasant acidity and aftertaste - but many rave about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml Bottle. A decent lager. Nothing overally special, but drinkable, better than your average lager.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle. Surprisingly not as bad as I thought it was going to be after having their pale a few months back. Just an easy goping lager, nothing out of the ordinary here

Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2012
Pours a very large cloudy yellow frothy white head. Aroma is sweet malt with hints of fruitiness. Taste is about the same. Very light bitterness. Ordinary.

mickmac (488) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2011
Bottle. Pale gold body with a large white head. Aroma:taste-subtle, tropical fruit, bread with a dry barely bitter finish. Light bodied.
