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.
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 .
