From bottle, Clear pale gold, no head and flat looking. Aroma mixes wet cardboard with grainy malt. Light body and lightly fizzy. Worth a try on a hot day.

This beer is a no carb beer. It is very weak in colour, reminding me of your standard American beer rather than an Australian beer. However the taste is not totally watery. I would still rather drink this than Budweiser!

Bottle: has a child with an enormous head on it. Enough said.

Appearance: considering this is a 'no-carb' beer, not too bad. That said, it looks a bit weak and flat, with a bubbling head that dissipates too quickly.

Aroma: very little in the way of aroma. What vague whiff is apparent is standard grains. Quite dull.

Taste: I don't really see the point of beers like this. Breweries have to understand that if a beer has almost no flavour, the only flavour that will come through is an awful, skunky off-metal grain. Mighty unimpressive.

Aftertaste: disappears quickly, thank God. Still, that's half the problem - there isn't that much flavour to begin with.

Mouth feel: thin and watery, with limited carbonation. Just keeps getting better...

Overall: a pointless and hatefully awful beer from a brewer that ought to know better. With their range of fantastic beers, this is a truly awful deviation from the norm. Add to that the fact that it is the price of standard full-strength, it is actually quite insulting. If you want a beer, buy one. If you really want a decent boutique light, get a Rogers Beer. If you just want a reasonable light lager, go for your standard macro White Stag, XXXX Gold, Cascade Light, etc. I can assure you they are much, much better value, and taste a whole lot better. Rant over.
