2.3/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.
