2.68/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Format: returning to this beer for the first time in years, as I have decided to try every beer I can find (whether I want to or not). A 375mL can with an okay macro label that just hasn't been updated since the 70s.

Appearance: pours a fairly dark copper in colour with a frothing white head that drops away pretty quickly. Pretty much as expected.

Aroma: not really very much aroma - light grains with a slightest touch of citrus. Very light indeed.

Taste: nothing much there. Very weak. I assume it is a bit of grain with some metallic from the can and the carbonation. Really much ado about absolutely nothing.

Aftertaste: not much here either. No bitterness, just a complete throw-down beer.

Mouth feel: light without being watery, with a higher carbonation. Made for hot weather for sure.

Overall: not very much to this one - hardly any flavour at all, just a very light throw-down for a very hot day. Also very, very cheap at $38 for a 30 block of cans. Still, not my sort of beer.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

A: Pours a dark honey color with a creamy head that fades to so me lacing.

S: Aroma is quite muted with a trace of citrus, malt sweetness and grain.

T: Taste is just a bit of malt sweetness and grain, really quite bland. Has a weak bitterness and fairly clean finish.

F: Light body, a bit watery and short on any flavor.

O: This beer is not really worth the effort.

This pours a clear dark amber colour with a fluffy half finger of head that doesn't want to stick around.

Some sweet malts on the nose but that's about it. Too scared to let it warm up anymore.

Clean inoffensive taste of nothing really. A little sweetness that really needs a bit more bitterness to even out as it is the taste sensation that sticks around.

Very high carbonation.

Inoffensive, clean boring light lager.

This is not to be confused with the Tooheys Blue Ice
It is very dark copper red in colour , and a decent head if you pour from a decent height There is a smallamount ofeffervescence.
The smell is distinctly honey malt, whilst not being strong it is there and it is pleasant.
The honey malt comes through the palateand is balanced with a bitter finish , that is not quite bitter enough.
The taste overall is just a little too suppressed , but it at least has flavours that are pleasant and have the beginnings of complexity.
I think this is a very different light beer and actually has flavour.
It is a Light that I would drink again .
