2.33/5 rDev -5.7%
Bottle: standard macro fare. Green 330mL bottle, reasonable label.
Appearance: mid-light straw lager, filmy head of nothing much. Unimpressive.
Aroma: fairly light aroma, mostly metallic funk with some standard lager grain backing.
Taste: poor. Tastes like a poorly made lager designed from Aussie market.
Aftertaste: still poor. Only the metallic funk remains - not overly pleasant.
Mouthfeel: the body is just about right, but the carbonation is a bit too strong - big carbonation bubbles carries the flavours awkwardly.
Overall: it is a cheaper lager, but there are better beers for the same price. Apparently this is a Dutch beer designed for the Australian market. It is reasonably cheap, but the awkwardness of the flavour outweighs the cheapness. Avoid.

Brewed by Bavaria, apparently for the Australian market, or so I hear.
Pours a very clear, slightly insipid pale golden colour, with a filmy head of nothingness that forms nothing more than a bubbly ring around the edge. Extremely light body, slightly scummy and rather unappealing.
Pleasant, if generic Euro green bottle funk to it. Some fragrant skunkiness, a touch of biting metallic twang but mostly light, both in depth and pure aroma.
Taste is bland and thin, with a slight muskiness on the front, and some slightly sharper bitterness on the back, giving a twang of copper pipes of alfoil. There's a thin adjuncty sweetness to it as well. In summary: yep, it's about the most generic Euro lager I've ever had.
Overall, it's not really offensive intrinsically, but it's offensively bland and so generic it hurts. There's really no need for this beer at all: it's just like any other mass-marketed green bottle swill.
