Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine May 2007.

Crown Lager touts itself as being the best of Australian beer since 1919. Personally, we highly doubt that, but let's give the beer the benefit of the doubt and try it.

Pale golden, lively carbonation and an ultra-tight and creamy head with a stick to the glass that puts many Double IPAs to shame--very appealing. Musty aroma, with some cereal grain and soft metallic notes. Thin-bodied and watery in the mouth. The carbonation showcased in the glass is barely noticeable on the palate--meaning the expected crispness is not present. No real hop bitterness to speak of, but there's something resembling a watery sourness that tastes a bit forced and contrived. Quite sweet--actually, it's too sweet. It's more of a corn-based sweetness that tastes processed. Mouthful of straw in the finish, drying and unpleasant.

Brewed by the Foster's Group, Crown Lager is merely a fizzy, yellow, bland beer with nothing going on other than looking pretty in a Pils glass. It doesn't even come close to standing up to other beers within its genre. One of the worst beers we've ever had from Oz.

Poured from the 375mL bottle into a pint glass.

The beer is a nice pure golden color with lots of carbonation coming through. Head dissipated almost immediately and was foamy and offwhite. Typical.

S: The smell coming off of this one is noticeable right upon opening and that's not entirely a good thing. Typical grainy smell but also some sort of sour and vegetal note. Not skunky, but not very natural or pleasant either.

T: Watery and very light on flavor but what is there isn't even your normal beery flavor. There's a sour note in the middle with a light bitterness covered up by an unnatural sweetness. Not undrinkable, just not that good.

This reminds me of a second rate Euro Pale Lager and seems like that's what they are going for as those are hugely popular. Even so, I've had better even for the style. Not even very refreshing due to the weird flavors in the beer.

Just go for a Bud or Fosters.

2.03/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2

375ml bottle poured into pint glass 15/3/14

A clear straw yellow with plenty of bubbles but just a short lived finger of foam that leaves a partial ring and a few random patches

S sweet grains and some wet cardboard, very little going on, a little hay maybe

T tastes much worse, chemicals and pennies, not quite skunky but a little musky, some cooked veggies, and soggy cereal

M thin and watery, soft carbonation, about what I expect from a macro but the aftertaste is awful and lingers

O not horrible until you taste it, doesn't really improve after that

this ones a wolf in sheep's clothing, looks good before you open and drink it, well and truly overpriced avoid this one boys and girls
