0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
BB 100714. (Parallel tasted with Bitter and Bitter 5.0). Poured a clear golden colour with a three- to four-finger white frothy head that retained well but laced poorly. Carbonation virtually nil. Aroma of light sour malt. Taste earthy, very sour and metallic. Light body which is very thin and watery. Very sour finish. Terrible - worse than Bitter and Bitter 5.0.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
A dollar eighty whatever it is and into the basket it went. Like the ghost of EMU Draft in every feature aside the polar opposite colour scheme. Made in the USA, what the fu..? Aroma of plasticine, starchy rice, ghee and soft tofu. Pretty much a parallel universe it surfs on flavour-wise. Starchy, soapy, no-where near beer at all. Good colour; it produces up a deep amber - no head, and little carbonation. Why does it remind me of crafts in kindergarten!? Pretty well owes me a dollar eighty in compensation!

355ml can from Dan Murphy’s. It actually has a bit a bit of colour for a cheap pale lager, amber with a soft head of foam. Not much happening in the aroma, a bit earthy. Flavour is pretty dreadful.
