Another generic, bland lager. This was about all you could find in the bush country. Nothing special here, worse than average pale lager. Watery, musty, grainy. Give this on a pass.

2.5/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Format: that nice old crownie 375mL brown bottle with a classy macro label. Always thought it looks pretty decent.

Appearance: poured into a tulip glass - mid-yellow in colour with limited visible carbonation. A very thin white head breaks up to a thin film and ring almost immediately.

Aroma: a sweet aroma of yeasts, grain and some sugar. A bit awkward at best.

Taste: and even more awkward here. Very skunky with a vegetal fug and some cheap adjuncts. I remember Crownies being better.

Aftertaste: some metallic flavours with a touch of grain. Still not brilliant, but at least the vegetal fug backs off.

Mouth feel: quite light in feel - almost watery - with a moderate carbonation.

Overall: an okay Australian macro lager, but really not up to scratch compared to others - even the standard macros. It is only AU$41 a case, but there are better around.

A: pours a somewhat golden color color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing.

S: Fairly mild aroma of malt sweetness with a bit of grain and trace of citrus.

T: Taste of a bit of citrus with malt sweetness and some grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Light body, bit of crispness and quite smooth. kind of boring.

O: Starndard lager that is non-offensive. Quite bland.
