3.13/5 rDev +22.7%
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.

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.
