2.83/5  rDev +20.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Can: a very macro-orientated yellow 375mL can.

Appearance: pours a strong yellow colour with plenty of lumpy carbonation. A fluffy white head dissipates quickly to a sparse cap. Looks a bit ordinary.

Aroma: plenty of grain and some malt - sweet barley and husk. That ol' XXXX smell. Some metallic since it's in a can (the only way to have it in Queensland).

Taste: pretty much follows the nose. XXXX is as XXXX does - a pretty simple mid-range lager.

Aftertaste: the flavours disappear pretty quickly as expected for a mid-range throw-down lager.

Mouth feel: a light mouth feel and plenty of carbonation. Easy to put back in a hot climate, which is kind of the idea.

Overall: XXXX Gold is extremely popular in Queensland due to its refreshing drinkability. A great price too, but all told I'd probably rather a Hahn 3.5 or Carlton Mid from this bracket.

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

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.
