A sunny afternoon on the strip, looking for a decent patio to enjoy the weather and the sights, and lo and behold, the old standard student pub has morphed into an Aussie-themed pub! The Outback now has competition in the kitschy 'Down Under in the Great White North' booze biz...
I couldn't sit down for the first time in such a place and not have a draft pint of that most famous of Australian potables in this part of the world. The beer arrives at the table, in the appropriately labeled glass, and appears a clear pale golden hue, with a minimum of thin white head, which leaves no lace. It smells of sweet white grain, and mildly skunky herbal hops. The taste is sweet, corn-flakes-like cereal grain, and mild earthy hops, somewhat acrid. The carbonation is moderate, the body kind of weak, and the finish off-dry. For a sunny patio, not a bad choice, but overall, nothing special - I don't think I'd order it again in different circumstances.

Pours with exceptional clarity. Light gold with lots of lager bubbles wafting toward the top to meet a fat soapy head of white foam that had better retention that I thought It might. Nose is crisp with only a slight bit of apple, sweet grain and a bright hops character. A bit of lemon from those pride of ringwood hops as it warms. Taste follows the nose all the way. The malt stays in the background until it warms and brings a light dry cracker. The apple is thin and delicious adding something cheerful and crisp. The carbonation has a small bite and the yeast imparts a bit of sourness to really round out this beer. Even though the middle is quite dry and palate cleansing, this beer finishes off dry and with a bit of sweet lemon and is very delicious. I would have this again.

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.
