First off this beer is decent compared to most other bitters. The appearance is exactly as one would expect for a bitter. The beer pours very average and bland. The aroma is not as sour as other bitters and the taste is a bit sweet, which is a surprise. Not the worst beer in the world , but a nice pleasant surprise.

Orange pour, small pour head.
Smell of faint grains, sweet malts and low hops.
Sweet malty taste, corn syrup, bit of zest, cut off by mildly bitter hops, skunk and a bit of metal.
Light bodied, medium fizz.
Drinkable, but the usual kinda bad adjunct macrolager. Apparently the most easy to come by in the land down under.
