Pours a small white head that disappears very quickly. Very pale, clear straw body.
There was a definite skunkiness to the smell. Once the head disappeared it became very difficult to smell much of anything. I have to bury my nose deep in the glass to get a hint of anything. Can't really describe what I do smell. Extremely faint gum smell, with a little chocolate and caramel. But the scent is so hidden that it might as well not be there at all for normal drinking purposes.
Taste has hints of coffee and copper. Not a particularly pleasant beer. Really no complexity at all. Very one dimensional.
Bubbly, sharp mouthfeel. This is the best part about the beer. It's slightly invigorating. Makes me want to punch a Kangaroo.
I won't go out of my way to grab another one of these, but in a pinch I wouldn't turn one down either. If this is Australian for "Beer", then poor, poor Australia. Somehow, I'm sure that's just US marketing though.

2.8/5 rDev +9.8%

Big ol' fluffy white head with stickage atop a pale golden brew. Looks like a nice glass of beer. No complaints here.
Grassy pilsner malts with a sprite hop presence. Surprisingly, pretty clean. Well-lagered. A slight musty Euro malt note that fades. Not bad.
Pretty clean again. Slight minty hop character that doesn't pair too badly with musty grassiness, slight mineral qualities, and watery grain. Finished gruff and spiny with adjunct sweetness hidden behind a note of fair booze.
Lots and lots of carbonation present. The body is weak, but it's a quenching drink. Booze presence is a little annoying.
Fosters is okay. I would order one when fresh, if left to macro options only.
