2.8/5  rDev +22.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle: clear bottle, rubbish label. Not terribly enticing.

Appearance: light straw yellow with a rasonable lager head, dissipates as expected.

Aroma: again, fairly standard lager aroma - cereal grains, touch of hops and that's it. No metallic off smell.

Taste: follows the nose - fairly standard cereal grains, tiniest touch of grassy hops.

Aftertaste: flavours dissipate quickly, pretty standard for a cheap macro lager.

Mouth feel: again pretty standard - very light body and high carbonation. - perfect for the top end of Queensland.

Overall: for AU$40 a case (2012), this ain't bad at all. The bottle led me astray, but once you get into it, you realise it is a fairly standard lager - cereal grains, touch of hops. No metallic off smell or taste that you may get in most cheap lagers.

Serving type: bottle

Pours gold with a fading head.
Nose shows cooked vegetables, grainy malt, cardboard notes, stale malt and faint spicy hints. Not great.
Sweet plain malt as a flavour first up followed by cardboard notes and stale beer. Finishes with an off-putting weak finish with very low bitterness.
Very watery body.

On tap at Salt in Cairns - from iPhone notes

Hmmmm this is an odd one. Looks the part in the glass, good head, good lace, but sadly all downhill after that.

Sweet!! Can't believe so much malt sweetness it gets cloying.

Called it quits after two schooners trying to support craft beer but let's have a Sav Blanc instead with dinner.

Serving type: on-tap
