Ok, this not a great beer but when I compare it to light beers from NA this is not bad. A decent hop level propels the finish to be clean and crisp. I could drink quite a few of these and not get that nasty mouthfeel that corn brings. worth a try if light is your thing.

Pale amber, some bead. Good solid white froth head. subsides to a thin head layer, some lace. A nice appearance.
Pale malty nose, with some almost tea-like notes. Otherwise not much hop aroma.
A better body than it's direct competitor (Boag's)... some hint of crystal/cara to give it a bit of body and character. Falls away a bit, but the malt is there.
As far as light beers go, this is fair to middling. I would like some more body, but then again I would like some more alcohol, so I would look elsewhere. However, if you're the designated driver, have a few of these, and you won't feel too left out.

there was a time all i drank were lagers (well, mostly). this is a typical example of, probably, why i stick with ales a bit more now.

pretty well an average beer, not a lot in the way of flavor or aroma. and as for mouthfeel, i guess its what you would expect from a light beer.

Probably the most drinkable of the Aussie lights, slightly more flavour than most. I don't see the point of the beer though (except if your driving home).
