2.55/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 2.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Format: a standard green 330mL bottle with a pretty ordinary macro label.

Appearance: pours out a pretty nasty yellow colour with a very thin white head that dissipates almost immediately.

Aroma: a very weak aroma of cheap grains and adjuncts with some florals or vegetal notes.

Taste: again very weak with cheap adjuncts. A nasty fug is evident -which turns out to be vegetal rather than the floral - however is still very light so doesn't impact too much.

Aftertaste: the flavours drop away pretty quickly per the style. Just a throw-down, cheap macro lager.

Mouth feel: quite light in body which comes across as watery. The carbonation somehow is chunky and yet makes the beer feel a bit flat.

Overall: an okay throw-back lager but that's about it. It has been designed for the hottest of hot weather where flavour is not as important as refreshment. You can still find better for under AU$40 a case though.

2.4/5  rDev -8%
look: 2.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

The taste is sweet at first, slightly bland - lacks some bubbles. Balanced body with a tiny amount of bitterness in the finish.
Drinkable,

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Pours a typical clear golden color, topped with an average white foamy head that immediately settles down.
The aroma is easily picked up, some malts and lots of grain.
The taste is sweet at first, slightly bland - lacks some bubbles. Balanced body with a tiny amount of bitterness in the finish.
Drinkable, but that's it.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

330ml bottle poured into pint glass 18/3/14

A pale yellow with lots of big bubbles feeding a finger of foam that's gone in seconds and leaves several patches of random lace

S sweet grains, cardboard, floral hops are faint but there, not skunked but has a chemical thing going on that doesn't work that well, smells like a corona or something similar

T doesn't stray far from the smell, not overly offensive but not exactly pleasant to drink, tastes like cardboard

M thin and watery, bubbles foam it up and its flat in seconds, vegetal aftertaste leaves something to be desired

O not quite awful but undesirable, tastes like so many other crappy warm climate macro lagers I'd pass if given a second chance

I didn't buy this one because I thought it would be good I bought it for the country tic. One of those beers that you could drink on a hot beach if you had to but I'm not on a hot beach in Indo
