This beer had a dark yellow color and a wonderful fine head. The lacing lasted to the bottom of the glass. Otherwise this beer was uninteresting. Attemps to discern any characteristics were difficult as this was an extremely restrained beer. I brought down the tast and mouthfeel due to the name of this beer. A beer named XXXX Bitter should in my opinion be a bitter beer. I have had ice cream that was more bitter than this. Between this beer and a glass of water, I would choose the water.

Well, this is pretty screwed up. Taste like they chucked in as much adjuncts as possible, they might have an awesome climate up there in queensland, but this beer is one good reason not to move there.

I've heard that recently the beer has lost its bitterness. These were stated as complaints, but I think it may do the beer good. A bitter beer has got to have balance with a full flavor and this beer didn't balance at all. The flavor was thin and bitter and the rest of the beer was typical.
