Not really bitter at all... just bland macro swill. Not much aroma at all, and the flavors range from slightly floral to chemical and cardboard. One to avoid. Nemo (100) - Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2004
Pale Golden In Colouring with a thick frosty decent sized head which lasts most of the beer through. Bitter, malty aromas are evident. A chemical, bitter, rustic taste of beer, which is also Crisp and Clear and drinkable when desperate. JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUN 20, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2004 Had out of many cans and bottles, a true Australian classic. Bitter taste and finish. Not bad when considered against American macrobrews. Still, far from special. I’m not sure if this will show as an update or not but I must note that United Airlines 747’s are stocked with this on flights traversing the Pacific Ocean from U.S. to Auz. Killed these like there was no tomorrow. Anytime a stewerdess looked at me, she knew she better god damn have a can of this in her hand. I shoved a few of the empty ones in my buddy Phil’s hoodie. I drank a 40oz of this in the streets of melbourne, paper baggy and all. I had it on tap. I had it in a little green bottle while dining at the Sydney Opera House. This beer is a staple of ’down under’ Do not deny it! haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - JUN 15, 2004
I had way too many of these on the flight over. haha. Well, kind of bitter. Very popular in Australia. I guess it’s like Bud Light over here. Kind of bitter taste. Some malt in the aroma. But aside from that just bland. But it was a different feel from the Bud products!! Lunkie (1965) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2004
Malt aroma with clear golden colour and little head. Bitter flavour with flat palate.

Its not a fancy pants beer - with strong textures and flavours. Its a beer for drinkers, clean crisp taste, bitter. Great for whittling away a thirst. madquacker (1176) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2004
UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 Horses for courses. This is by any estimate a chemical based bad beer. However, sometimes its so bad its good... on a warm day at a BBQ when drunk freezing cold. Are worse at this price on the Aust mkt. Brings back memories of getting drunk at Uni. whiterabbit (28) - AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2004
Not pleasant, from the first smell after twisting the top off to the foul after taste. I agree with alphaone, how doies this beer sell so well in Australia. Maybe its got something to do with the Criminal heritage. A drink for bogans and people with no taste buds only. AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2004
this beer is vile, the smell and taste is rancid, a couple of years ago i was able to tolerate it but now it is rendered totally undrinkable. how is this rubbish the highest selling beer in Australia? i'd drink XXXX over this...
