3.13/5 rDev +23.2%
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.
Serving type: can

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.

2.59/5 rDev +2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Poured from a 12oz bottle
Appearance: Light golden, clear wheat in color, clean white head that holds well, fair lacing, good carbonation
Smell: Nothing real exciting or strong, but malty grains and slight fruit show up if you try hard enough
Taste: Flavor is on the light side, slight hints of malts, earthy fruit, very light hops
Feel: Fresh, lively carbonation, surprisingly heavier than expected
Overall: Not much to stand out from most cheap lagers
Not completely unimpressed, but I don't plan on buying any soon. A decent recommendation for a session beer or summer post-chore refreshment, however.
