look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
A 500ml can with a BB of Nov 2011. The exterior states that the ABV is 4%, and that this was brewed in Edinburgh by Heineken UK (so much for Australia's amber nectar).
Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A clear golden-amber colour with considerable carbonation. Yields a frothy head of white foam that disappears after a minute or two. Aroma of light malt with a funk of stewed leaves and a hint of sulfur. Not particularly good.
Tastes of light malt with a faint hint of grain. Mild bitterness and a slight stewed hop flavour in the background. No hoppy aroma to be found. Mouthfeel is crisp and tingly with some astringency. Weak aftertaste of light malt.
Not exemplary; particularly given that this tends to represent 'Australian beer' to most people. Although I have it on authority (from an Ozzie) that it isn't really sold in Australia - so it's just for export. Bland and pretty flavourless, with an unpleasant note to the aroma. If you must drink it, keep it cold....

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.
