had this during a fairly large dinner and i wasnt left with a bloated feeling that can happen when drinking beer with lots of food. fairly easy to drink beer. not an excessive amount of hop aroma or taste. finishes very clean with no aftertaste (bad or otherwise).

overall, an average to good beer although i would be more inclined to experiment on something different before trying this again.

Crystal clear with a deep gold sheen. The head is limited, dissipating quickly but leaving a thin, whispy layer of off-white around the edge of the glass. The aroma is pretty basic malt & hops; not impressive, but there are some hops here. The body is light and gives a somewhat thin mouthfeel. The flavor starts with a lightly "bready" malt, followed by some limited hop flavor, and finishes with a short dry hop aftertaste. Crisp, refreshing, slightly dry lager. Although this bottle doesn't show any signs of age (oxidation, etc.) I suspect it's lost a lot of it's character. Probably much better on draft.

Standard Aussie lager, not much flavour to speak of, but quite smooth and crisp, sadly i don't think this will imporve now that San Miguel has moved in.
