3.13/5 rDev +23.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 25.4 oz can with no description of the beer and no freshness date.
Appearance: Pale sunny clear golden colour, good frothing of a white head when first poured. Yields a rocky and slowly dissipating two fingered head that soon enough is virtually gone.
Smell: Hint of malted grain, traces of cooked veggies and husky undertones make up the aroma which is relatively clean.
Taste: Crisp and grainy with a slightly refreshing smoothness. Light to moderate body. Sweet grain leans towards husky with light biscuity and powdery flavours. Even hop bitterness that couples well with the fresh graininess. Vague astringent flavours are mild and hard to trace back to their grain and hop origins. Husky finish that gradually dries.
Notes: A pretty drinkable lager, nothing to go “beer crazy” over. A good beer to wash down a working man’s meat and potatoes meal.

It looks and smells like an aright lager, but one taste from its oil can container and it becomes this beergod awful beverage from down under (hell?). Sure the adverts in the US are funny, but it hardly helps to mask its hard to swallow taste. Thanks, but I'll pass on this one.

3.49/5 rDev +37.9%

From the infamous oil can. Brewed in Fort Worth Texas. Best by date Dec 1. 2014. So quite fresh.
Pours clear gold with two fingers of long lived white head. Lacings were spectacular and some head remained to the bottom of the nonic pint glass.
Smell was mostly white bread. Some herbal or grassy hops also.
Taste is mostly malts white bread or biscuit. The hops are mostly noticed in the dry finish.
Mouthfeel is good. Carbonation is bold and the body is light to medium.
Overall a suprisingly good beer for the style. Served as cold as possible. As the beer warmed it still tasted alright with no off tastes.
