Not a good beer; nothing special. It is over carbonated and a lack of body, metallic - egg smell, and citrus aroma with a very very vague malt flavor,. The strong metallic twang seems to alter the mouthfeel. Pretty bad if I have to be honest.
I would not order or buy another.

A: Served a light golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma is quite mild. Light citrus aroma with a bit of grain.

T: Taste is pretty bland with just a trace of malt sweetness. There is not real bitterness and a dry finish.

F: Light body, mild crispness and not much else. Quite boring really.

O: This makes for a good entry level beer. Best served ice cold on a hot day.

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

A - Light yellow straw with a decent macro white head. Clear body, a few strands of lace.

S - Not much going on here, typical macro lager smell, like a pub in the morning.

T - Pretty flavourless with the most prominent characteristic being old coins.

M - Light, thin and fizzy.

O - Pass.

One of those days where I find myself at a cafe where the 'special' - i.e. the only affordable item - comes with a bundled bottle of joy - Tooheys Extra Dry.

Now - I have drunk tons of this stuff at the Big Day Out, and it's served at around 0.5 degrees and it's ok at that given it is the music, not the beer, that I go for.... however, in a glass how will it fair?

Pours a one finger white head, light golden colour. Nothing wrong so far.

Smells of, really, not a lot. Faint sweet malt maybe?

Taste - hmm, bland, light, sweet, mainstream, to start with, but after half the beer, a definite, and most unwelcome metallic taste appears. No discernible hop presence at all. I suspect my 17 year old would love it.

One for a 40 deg day, straight from the ice-filled esky only, and then I suspect, still quite sessionable.

Drank from my Duvel Tulip

A - Pours a clear golden colour with a decent white head that hangs around.

S - A little metallic aroma, but nothing else.

T - Crisp and bitter witha little citrus malt and I mean a little. Pretty bad really.

M - Over carbonated and light to medium body.

D - I can see why this appeals to the average beer punter in OZ. It's overcarbonated and tastless. Perfect for the 18 year old with a V8 ute.

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.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours golden amber with a large head that slowly fades.
Nose shows cooked vegetables with hints of banana and some grainy malt.
Very similar flavours with the addition of stale cereal-like malt. Not too offensive.
Body is quite watery, moderate carbonation.

A glaring omission from my reviewing history. Let's give it the treatment.

Pours a very clear golden yellow colour, with an initially thick head of white foam, that lays itself down to a robust film, sticking to the edges of the glass with excellent lacing. Small beads of fine carbonation stream to the top. I mean, seriously, all things considered it's a pretty good looking lager.

Almost nothing on the nose. No fragrance, no sweetness, maybe a little whiff of raw meat or copper, but almost nothing. It probably doesn't help that I served it ice cold, but I'm almost positive that's optimal serving temperature.

Clean entry with a light sharp bitterness, before a huge welling of yeast, sweaty grain and pride of ringwood bursts out to overwhelm the palate with its insidious masquerade. After the initial sip, though, the palate is dulled, leaving the rest of the glass as a bucket of bland, empty pathos. Mouthfeel is crisp, suits the style, but it's having a hard time lending anything to it. All up, it really is just bland, not offensive.

Odd. A long, long time ago, longer than I'd care to remember, this was my beer of choice. Before I'd opened my eyes and seen the wide world of beer, I thought there was nothing better than cracking open a cold Extra Dry after a long day at work. Since then, I've spurned it as the devil's drink - a vestige of my "unenlightened" days. But I can genuinely see why people (myself included) would like this - it's bland, clean, dry and, against all reason, refreshing.

No, it's not a good beer. But neither, considering its aim, is it a particularly bad one.

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.
