3.45/5 rDev +10.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Bottle: reasonable macro label, decent brown 330mL bottle. Nice.
Appearance: deep amber, funnily enough. 1.5-centimetre decent head. Good retention with some lacing.
Aroma: reasonably thick - some breads and caramel. A touch of citrus too.
Taste: again breads and caramels, they work nicely together. There are other standard lager grains also.
Aftertaste: a touch of citrus hop bitterness, but otherwise disippates rapidly.
Mouth feel: medium- to- high carbonation. A light body doesn't carry the flavours as well as it could be. A medium thickness could bring the hops through better.
Overall: A good quality, easy-drinking amber that went very, very well alongside the steak at the Spanish Club. A good beer for AU$43 a case. Definitely a goer.

Had this at a local Mexican restaurant. Decent and comparable to Yuengling (my favorite mass-produced beer). Here goes:
A: OK, not good or bad. Beer pours a dark brown with a one inch head that quickly dissipates. Very little lacing, too, but not bad.
S: Not that much going on here. Caramel malt is present but it's very light (hardly detectable). No hops or yeast.
T: Good. Presence of burnt caramel malt imparts toasty characteristics. It tastes like a watered-down Yuengling. As I was drinking it I was wishing it was Yuengling instead.
M: Light-bodied; lighter than Yuengling. Slight bready character makes up for the light body somewhat, though. Not bad.
O: OK beer. Would rather have a Yuengling, but not bad.
