3.21/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pale yellow/gold in colour. Pours a rocky white head, with some large bubbles. Leaves a nice lace.
Smells of typical macro Aussie lager. Metallic POR hops, some subtle sulfur.
Fairly innocuous taste... grain and some nuttiness that may be Munich or somesuch, nice late burst of hop flavour.
Creamier front mouthfeel than Aussie macros, although it finishes crisp & dry.
I'd drink this over Carlton/Lion bulk beers anyday, but I think there are other Premium labels that have more character & interest.
A singlel bottle at Dan Murphy only cost $2 AUD, so it's good value IMHO.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Quite pale in colour , only slightly effervescentand a thin indeterminate head.
Unfortunately it has the almost obligatory metallic smell of most Australian Lagers , however there is a malt/grain background that diminishes the nastiness to the smell.
The taste to me is somewhat of a cross betwen a typical Euro Pale Lager (that has sweet malt predominance 0 and an American Macro Lager (that is bittere tastlessness)
So we end up with a rounded sweet tasting beer that finishes bitter and very dry.
It is a cut above most regular Australian Lagers and whilst not achieving any complex heights seems to be a drinkable session Lager
