look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

A - like flat ginger ale, absolutely no head even with an aggressive pour, the carbonation is gone within seconds and zero lacing at all

S - that very artificial beery smell without intricacies, as if based on a 'beer' flavoured jelly bean or ice cream

T - citrus and corn, very typical of the chemical macro Aussie beer

M - like water

O - the only thing going for it is it's cheap. Absolutely has to be served ice cold to be drinkable, if so - it does serve it's purpose after some hard yakka in the sun - you can really slam them down fast if you dont have to taste them. less horrible on tap.

A: Clear gold, thick head with disappears very quickly leaving some large soapy-like bubbles. Moderate carbonation.

S: Hoppy and very metallic.

T: Hoppy and metallic taste also in taste profile, with a hint of Vegemite/yeast.

M: A bit thin and watery, but ok.

O: This is my preferred go to beer if where ever I am drinking at doesn't have much on offer, will drink this over most mainstream Australian beers anyday. It's definitely a beer to enjoy ice cold on hot summer days. Very simple in flavour but that isn't a bad thing at all.

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

A - Pours a pale yellow with a decent 1 finger fluffy white head. Very little retention however

S - Not much aromas. Smells grainy and yeasty

T - More flavor than most American Adjunts, but still not very flavorful. Mainly malts/grains

M - Very light beer. Feels slick in the mouth.

O - Nothing special. Doesn have more flavor than a light beer. Similar to Budweiser in my opinoin. Not a bad beer, just nothing to write home about

Yellow, clear look. Drunk straight from a can so you can get the best of both worlds: zero taste and extra-bloating carbonation. What a treat! I avoid this beer in my haughty beer-snobbery, not because I’m a New South Welshman and loyal to Toohey’s New (because I avoid that too). This is a good beer to enjoy at a family BBQ, when you want to ‘fit in’ with normal folk who have convinced themselves that a good beer is characterised by a strong marketing campaign.
