Creamy & smooth with an average pale lager type aroma & taste.

Format: a tall, yellow can that is half-way decent. Okay I guess, just very macro. A bit cheap-looking.

Appearance: a clear yellow colour with limited visible carbonation. A half-finger of creamy white sits on top and lasts the distance. Decent.

Aroma: a fairly light aroma of fruit, florals and some sweet malts.

Taste: some more of those buttery sweet malts with floral and fruits. A nice flavour profile but very flat.

Aftertaste: the malts and some florals on the aftertaste, but still quite flat.

Mouth feel: medium in body with a lower carbonation. Needs more carbonation, as many British beers seem to do.

Overall: an okay English Bitter, but certainly too flat in feel for my liking. I'd really enjoy trying this one on tap instead of from the bottle. Nonetheless, decent for AU$83 for a 24 x 440mL case.

I seem to keep coming back to this one. Definitely better draft than in the can. Smooth taste and very creamy head. Easy to knock lots of these back at the pub.

Smooth style and very light. Easy on the taste and easy to drink. Cool and refreshing for a quick "light and easy" party beer or summer refresher on the pond!

Better than Hen's Tooth...still not as good as New Castle.
