Pours a dark golden yellow with a small short lived white head. Aroma and taste is of grains, cereal, grassy and light fruity notes. A medium body palate, crisp with good carbonation. Finish is grains, grass and fruity. Overall a very non descript mass produced brew, but still an ok brew for summer drinking.

Pours no head whatsoever on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a weak grain aroma.
The taste has a mild sweetness at first but balances out nicely.
The texture is crisp and fizzy with a light body.
The appearance and smell are wanting but the taste and texture are fine enough.

In the world of lagers I really like this one.
I saw this in the cold beer section and noticed it was from Tasmania, very cool.
I never had a Tasmanian beer before so I had to buy it.

Crisp and clean enough for this hot florida weather.
I enjoyed it with some steak and onions and it went really well.
The flavor was strong enough to know you were drinking a beer and did not linger around too long.

In a time that is dominated by powerful IPAs and unique tastings brews, this was like a visit from an old friend.
