look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Bottle: reasonable label, decent green 330mL bottle. Kind of classy.

Appearance: light yellow colour with big and fluffy head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma: the aroma is a little off putting, smelled of sweet corn and some grain.

Taste: thin, watery and without much flavour, a little sweet corn and grains.

Aftertaste: with the limited flavours, that lager metallic fug is definitely dominant in the aftertaste. Not terribly pleasant.

Mouth feel: light- to- medium bodied, with a medium carbonation.

Overall: thin, watery and without much flavour, a little sweet corn and grains. Nice on a hot day when you don't need flavour so much as you do refreshment. I still say that there are better beers even in this price range (AU$43 a case in 2012).
