Well, this is pretty screwed up. Taste like they chucked in as much adjuncts as possible, they might have an awesome climate up there in queensland, but this beer is one good reason not to move there.

I've heard that recently the beer has lost its bitterness. These were stated as complaints, but I think it may do the beer good. A bitter beer has got to have balance with a full flavor and this beer didn't balance at all. The flavor was thin and bitter and the rest of the beer was typical.
