3.15/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Bottle: pretty standard macro lager label, with decent 375mL green bottle.

Appearance: pours a clear straw yellow with a fizzy white head that settles to a thin cap over the beer.

Aroma: bready grain and floral hops, reminiscent of hay and grass.

Taste: the flavour has some nuttiness and toasted malt although it is very faint. There is some light bread there as well.

Aftertaste: not bad, would be better if there was a bit more flavour.

Mouth feel: lighter body and medium carbonation makes for an easy-flowing beer - goes down easy and avoids the mistake of over-carbonating as some other Australian lagers do.

Overall: a reasonable macro lager, better quality than the XXXXs and VBs. It is a bit more expensive, but overall worth the extra $5 - $10.

Serving type: bottle
