look: 1.5 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Format: that nice old crownie 375mL brown bottle with a very stylish version of their macro label. A good package.

Appearance: unfortunately a good package doesn't necessarily mean a good appearance. Poured into a schooner glass, it is mid golden-amber in colour with very minimal carbonation. An off-white head jumps to a finger before frittering away to nothing. Not a thin film - nothing. No lacing either - looks like dark apple juice.

Aroma: the aroma is definitely dominated by malts, sweet grains and some adjuncts. Pretty one-dimensional, and quite underwhelming.

Taste: follows the nose - weak and ordinary. Not a good beer at all.

Aftertaste: still the sweet malts and adjuncts. Boring.

Mouth feel: light and watery in body with a lower carbonation. What an ordinary beer.

Overall: this is not a good beer. The aroma and flavour are boring and yet nasty, the flavour is watery and the look is dreadful. To top it off, they want AU$50 for a case of this travesty. No thanks.
