Dry (of course) slightly nutty, other than that rather plain, that said, it's a very drinkable beer, it won the best dry lager section at the world beer cup in 98, so it can't be that bad.
good session beer.

A: Flashy golden filtered texture, half a finger of white head, little carbonation. Beautiful to look at.

S: Malts, sort of an acrid scent much like animal offal. Surprisingly not much skunk for the clear bottle. Film developers fluid.

T: Malty, somewhat standard AA Lager like, little floral, not much skunk, a nice yeast in the aftertaste.

M: Light body, medium carbonation.

O: Beautiful beer I was not expecting much from. Not really getting any skunk to my delight. Taste like an average smooth AA Lager, with nothing to really complain about regarding it. Could match any number of foods.

From my souvenirs, I try this one during a game of card. This is the dry version of Tooheys family; taste good, easy to drink. But its not a beer od fine degustation. the apparence is very light yellow. mid carbonation. I didtn notice the smell to be honest, probably light, but it taste alright, quit easy to drink and, yeah thats it..Tooheys dry..it said it all. not bad..

Poured a light copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a clean malt aroma and a subtle hop.

The taste was light and balanced with a dry and clean finish.

The mouthfeel was clean and dry.

Overall a very drinkable lager if served ice cold. A good summer lawnmower beer.

Nothing impressive about it, but it's easy to drink. It's good for a hot day because you can slam them down. Pours a light caramel colour. Tight head that faded away but left some lace. Not much in the way of smell or flavour in it at all, but no smell or flavour is better than bad smell or flavour.

weak tastes, hints of wateryness, unimpressive appearence, virtually no smell. Drinkable due to price and inoffensiveness. Clear bottle attractive but stupid. Would drink if free but would never pay for it. Certainaly a more good australian beer, but thats not saying much.

Pours pale gold with very strong carbonation, a generous white head that sticks around yet looks a tad listless. Not bad but standard.

Actually smells kind of sweet with toffee characters shining dimly through an otherwise bitter adjunct smell. It's all a bit weak. The only reason I get that toffee at all is there is not a lot of adjunct smell. I think you're in trouble when I'm complaining about the weakness of the adjunct aroma.

Taste is again quite sweet for a lager and therefore could almost pass for pleasant. There is, however, a crescendo of bitterness which starts mid-palate and gets stronger, leaving a hang of nasty bitterness. Has a fair amount of flavour which could almost make me forgive that finish.

Mouthfeel is thin, but quite smooth with nothing offensive about it.

Long, long ago I used to believe this was the best beer around. Not meaning to put it too strongly, I can see where I formed that (misguided) opinion. This is not nearly as nasty as other cheap Australian beers and actually, for all its faults it's fairly pleasant drinking.

I still won't drink it.

Well what can i say about this beer but this beer in australia is what u would call a session beer produced by a big company in australia,it basically looks like a pilsner/lager and is based around the main staple of beer what australians drink,on smelling its just a faint hop smell but nothing else and the taste is pretty bland but easy to drink even if your not a big fan of beer it has a thin mouth feel and is well carbonated but definately not a beer for the beer expert.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - 3.5
Poured a finger of bubbly, barely off-white head that reduced steadily leaving decent lacing. The colour is a clear light orange/gold, and it looks to be highly carbonated.

Smell - 2.5
Very little smell whatsoever, and what there is is a pretty generic, but not unappealing macro smell of corn, stale grains and a little hops. Despite the clear bottle there is no skunk, so I'm betting this is pretty fresh.

Taste - 2.0
Very little in the way of taste. It's refreshing cold, and has flavours of grains, corn sweetness, cheap bread, and a little hops in the dry finish. Quite crisp, and very little aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - 2.5
Slightly more carbonated than average for its style, feels light in the mouth and becomes a bit watery as it warms.

Drinkability - 4.0
This is a pretty easy drinking beer, and is quite refreshing on a hot day, and only 4.2% ABV. No nasty tastes to put you off, but no nice tastes to keep it interesting either.

OVERALL - 2.65
This is actually very similar to Corona, and a LOT cheaper, so my advice to those who like Corona is to make a change to TED for the benefit of your wallet. Nothing too distasteful about this beer, it's refreshing, but it's really little more than fizzy, dry, corny water.

345ml (?) clear as day bottle, at 6 bucks a pop on the patio of an Aussie-themed pub on Whyte Ave? Why the hell not.

This beer pours a crystal clear, pale golden yellow hue, with one finger of weakly puffy, wanly foamy dirty white head, which leaves some iceberg-like lace around the glass as it duly dissipates.

It smells of semi-sweet, grainy pale malt, a certain corn-syrup 'sweetness', a stale apple and citrus fruitiness, and a reserved skanky, morning after kitchen countertop, dead bodies' weedy hoppiness. The taste is quite in line with my just recovering nose - grainy, husky rice pudding malt, some further musty corniness, a rather innocuous orchard fruitiness, one bled dry of any character and/or sweetness, and mildly sour, scorched earth hops.

The carbonation is surprisingly on the soft side, the body surely light in weight, with a more than pithy smoothness - my tongue is still trying to figure how to come to terms with this. It finishes off-dry, and clean, in the manner of your favorite unkempt single friend's pad.

A somewhat easy enough to drink, even mildly refreshing foreign-ass tipple, in the straight-up macro vein. Agreeable only, apparently, when your attention/wallet is duly distracted by the sunny afternoon's activities, inside and out.
