Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains and a bit of biscuit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light to medium bodied. Finishes pretty clean.

The aroma is very beery and grainy and the appearance is gold and clear. The flavor is basic pale lager and again very beery.

look: 2.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Format: a 375mL brown stubbie with a standard macro label.

Appearance: light yellow in colour with chunky carbonation. Very little to no head. Looks pretty ordinary.

Aroma: light malts with a tiny bit of indistinguishable hops. Pretty boring.

Taste: some off-metal carbonation with earthen characteristics and that's about it.

Aftertaste: really not brilliant - that awkward metallic and earthen fug. I can't even pick up Coopers' normal yeasts in this.

Mouth feel: very light in feel with a lower carbonation. I think it is the lack of carbonation that jurts this lager.

Overall: pretty ordinary tasteless bollocks. Far too low in carbonation to bring the flavours through well. AU$45 a case is too high.

Pours gold with a small fading white head.
Nose shows hay, sweet light malt, vegetal characters and bready notes.
Similar flavours, more hay and sweet light malt with cooked vegetable notes. Needs some hop character.
Carbonation could really be higher.
Not great.

My liquor store in Edmonton recently got a bunch of Australian beers. While I like the idea, the six packs are really, really expensive. I decided to tear them open and sell them as singles and chose to be the first customer of this one here.

The bottle is cool, and the label looks almost a little shiny. It pours a very cool looking shade of yellow with a compelling orange glow to it - this is a shade I don't think I've encountered yet in any pale lager, but it's awesome to say the least. The aroma is faint and has a sweet, malty undertone to it. It's not the sort of smell that makes me say "damn!", but then again very few beers like this do.

The beer proclaims that it is "all malt", a term I don't see used much in Canada, so I googled it and found it means that it is brewed with only malt and hops and no adjuncts. I can tell - it doesn't have those corny tones to it that some lesser brews have. I'm sure "stralya" has its fair share of adjunct lagers crawling around, so it seems I've found a decent one. There is a definite sweetness coming from the grain which is balanced well by a hoppy subtlety on my tongue. There is a little of a bitter aftertaste when you start drinking it, but this goes away after a few sips.

Feel is solid - nicely carbonated and it feels like a cloud going down my throat when I drink it - cool to say the least.

It's a fine beer for sure. I don't know if it warrants a repeat purchase, but it's a decent sip on a hot day.
