Very refreshing, solid but unexciting taste. If you're flying Qantas economy class, ask for a can of this - it will be the highlight of your meal.

Bottle from Nannup beer store. Mass market lager, not much else to say, blends with the rest. Thirst quenching ability is saving grace. Can't tel the difference between the "Draught" and the "Premium Lager".

Appearance: Poured with a half finger of head that stuck around and produced lace. The body is a paler gold colour with steady carbonation.

Smell: A slight tinge of skunk, but it is mainly masked by ample grain barley and a touch of lemon. Warming doesn't help or harm its case in any event.

Taste: Nothing wrong with it, it's just rather plain. You have some mild malt to start that builds up a bit with some strawiness and ends with a wet dusting a grassy and earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: I want to say it's crisp, but it has a wetter texture after it ends which doesn't lend itself to the name. The aftertaste is subdued apart from a slight lemon note at the carbonation contributes mildly to the entire beer, so yeah decent.

Drinkability: Very gassy, like the missing head showed up in your gut. Certainly a summer drinker, as it's exceptionally refreshing and light bodied apart from the carbonation. Easy to drink, as a good lager should be.

Final Thoughts: All in all, it's a fairly solid import lager. It knows what it is, and it does it well. There isn't anything here that is going to blow you away, but it certainly makes you scratch your head and ask why can't macro's here do this? It gets a thumb up, but redefining the style it is not.
