2.03/5  rDev -20.4%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Another in my self-imposed torture of reviewing Aussie lagers, when will it end!? (I did buy a bottle of Chimay White which I cannot wait to review). Anyway this one has always been an option when the only other thing on tap is Carlton Draught or VB, and only because the on tap version is -0.4 degrees Celsius, which means you can't even taste how bad it is.

Poured from a 375ml stubbie into a 500ml Pokal.

A: Body on the yellow side of gold, with a cappuccino foam white head that dissolved quicker than a Disprin to leave a "spider web" lacing.

S: Smells of musty grains and skunky vegetables. No detectable hop aroma. There is a hint of the damp sewer rat that was noted in my tasting of the VB, lets hope this doesn't present below.

T: Yep... almost as bad as the VB. There's really not too much betwixt them; annoyingly heavy "bad" malt grains (yes, as opposed to good malt grains, there is a difference), with that bad vegetable flavour and in this one more than VB I noticed something chemical tasting (???). If the hops are there I don't like what they are doing to the flavour profile.

M: Over carbonated to the point of "dreaded bloat" as I like to call it. I couldn't finish more than three of these before I called it a night. It is different on tap, but this is a bottle review, I may do a tap review later. Also watery... again common in Aussie lagers.

D: If I wasn't reviewing it I wouldn't have bought it. Lucky I only bought a single stubbie and I've got something else to drink so I can simply tip the rest down the sink. On another note; it's positive to see craft beers taking off in this country as we have suffered so long under the yolk of macro brewers and I really think Australians deserve a decent beer choice - VIVA CRAFT BEERS!

Food match: The cheapest meat pie you can find... don't forget to completely drench it in tomato sauce to completely drown out the flavour of this brew.

Pretty grim. Looks a lot better than it tastes, but that's not saying much, believe me. Flavor a this beer is adjunct flavored grain with some generic sweet that wont go away. Not good. I feel a headache coming on. Weird body; almost feels like there's glycerin in it. Stay away from this beer. :You'll thank me
