473ml can - a 'Session Lager'. I guess the term 'lite' has fallen out of favour in the brewing industry.

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden straw colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, rocky, and faintly creamy dirty white head, which leaves some decent random cloud form lace around the glass as it slowly seeps out of sight.

It smells of gritty and crackery cereal malt, some mild orange and lemon citrus peel, a bit of estery lager yeastiness, and very tame earthy, musty, and floral green hop bitters. The taste is orange pith, grainy and crackery pale malt, more almost phenolic yeast, and some plain earthy, floral, and grassy hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its structurally sound frothiness, the body a solid medium weight, and generally smooth, with nothing really a cause for concern at this particular point in the game. It finishes off-dry, with a mixed cereal graininess kind of limping in the lingering state.

Overall - this is certainly a few steps up from yer typical fizzy yellow water stereotype, yet still not all that interesting. If ya gotta have a brew, and then need to drive or operate other heavy machinery, then, sure, this one's for you. Otherwise, I shall be looking elsewhere for my fix.

Got the four-pack of cans. Probably the best light beer I've had, but that isn't saying much. Great aroma of lemon square and biscuit. Flavour is more orange. Best served really cold - aroma and taste didn't hold up well over the course of the glass. Overall, good for a light lager.

Light, Crisp, Refreshing. It has a non-overbearing citrus twist, as it is brewed with sweet-orange peel. Its amazing on tap, and still surprisingly refreshing in a can. I served glasses of it paired with fresh fruit at a dinner party, and it was a huge success.

Kind of the little brother of the excellent Potts Pils, this is a canny move (pun intended) for the Moon. Made with a proportion of rice, also some orange peel. Unfiltered, so you get that fresh flavour. Great beer to offer 'fraidycats when you take them to the Moon. Not only them, either - I enjoy it myself when I have to consider driving home. Has just come out in cans for the summer market, don't know if this will be an all year brew or not.
