Clean, golden appearance, with a white, average foam.
In the smeel some stale cereals, and an impression of quite old hop.
Even worst taste. Wet cardboard, wet cereals.
No.

Fair bit of carbonation. Stong malt aftertaste that lingers. Good flavors up front, but I'm not a fan of the finish.

Poured into a nonic glass. Pours a light straw amber with gold tints with a one finger white head that dissipates to patches. Served too cold at a restaurant. Aroma is light grainy malt with a hint of grassy hops. Flavor is similar, grainy malt and light grassy hops, but has some nice biscuit malt flavors in the finish that redeemed it and made it a nice accompaniment to an Indian restaurant meal. Light bodied. I wasn't expecting much and so this light, slightly grainy lager was fine for dinner. The biscuity finish was more enjoyable than I expected and I would consider this again for a similar meal rather than a sweeter adjunct style lager.

Format: a good 330mL brown bottle with a stylish macro label.

Appearance: a crystal clear pale yellow amber with a finger of white head that drops away pretty quickly to a thin ring.

Aroma: the usual macro grains, but also some herbal hop aromas which is nice.

Taste: follows the nose to the letter. Herbal hops with macro grains - quite nice.

Aftertaste: drops away fairly quickly with a touch of bitterness hanging about.

Mouth feel: light in feel with an okay carbonation. Pretty good - the flavours come through quite nicely.

Overall: whilst this is still just a pretty standard macro lager, it is better than your average. Pretty good for AU$43 a case too.
