Can. Aroma horribly fruity and corny, hint of sharp alcohol. Not so bad in flavour - slightly minerally, otherwise completely watery. Drinkable.

DavidAust (261) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2015
Quite a surprising package. Nice simple lager with minimal bitterness. This is not a beer to sit and savour, this is simply a nice drink on a hot day to quench the thirst and refresh. No lingering finish - just a clean crisp lager finish. Definitely at its best when fresh in PNG. Appearance is just what you expect from a mass produced lager - yellow and minimal head - if you were expecting something else you didnt read the label. But the flavour is nice with no chemical aftertaste - just simple lager beer done reasonably well. Safer than the water too.

From bottle in shaker. Pale golden with lively CO2. Theres a bit of European influence in this lager but it falls a bit short.

Bottle from Dan Murphys in Australia, brought to UK by Vinnie. Country #102. Pours a pale gold colour with a thin white head. Sweet malt aroma, sweet taste. Very light body. Medium carbonation. No aftertaste, just a bit too sweet.
