A glaring omission from my reviewing history. Let's give it the treatment.

Pours a very clear golden yellow colour, with an initially thick head of white foam, that lays itself down to a robust film, sticking to the edges of the glass with excellent lacing. Small beads of fine carbonation stream to the top. I mean, seriously, all things considered it's a pretty good looking lager.

Almost nothing on the nose. No fragrance, no sweetness, maybe a little whiff of raw meat or copper, but almost nothing. It probably doesn't help that I served it ice cold, but I'm almost positive that's optimal serving temperature.

Clean entry with a light sharp bitterness, before a huge welling of yeast, sweaty grain and pride of ringwood bursts out to overwhelm the palate with its insidious masquerade. After the initial sip, though, the palate is dulled, leaving the rest of the glass as a bucket of bland, empty pathos. Mouthfeel is crisp, suits the style, but it's having a hard time lending anything to it. All up, it really is just bland, not offensive.

Odd. A long, long time ago, longer than I'd care to remember, this was my beer of choice. Before I'd opened my eyes and seen the wide world of beer, I thought there was nothing better than cracking open a cold Extra Dry after a long day at work. Since then, I've spurned it as the devil's drink - a vestige of my "unenlightened" days. But I can genuinely see why people (myself included) would like this - it's bland, clean, dry and, against all reason, refreshing.

No, it's not a good beer. But neither, considering its aim, is it a particularly bad one.

A: Flashy golden filtered texture, half a finger of white head, little carbonation. Beautiful to look at.

S: Malts, sort of an acrid scent much like animal offal. Surprisingly not much skunk for the clear bottle. Film developers fluid.

T: Malty, somewhat standard AA Lager like, little floral, not much skunk, a nice yeast in the aftertaste.

M: Light body, medium carbonation.

O: Beautiful beer I was not expecting much from. Not really getting any skunk to my delight. Taste like an average smooth AA Lager, with nothing to really complain about regarding it. Could match any number of foods.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Format: a clear 345mL bottle with a transluscent label. Looks okay.

Appearance: pours an amber-golden colour with bubbling carbonation. A thin half-finger of head drops to a thin film and ring. Limited lacing.

Aroma: pretty typical lager, with light hops and light cereal adjunct grains. Okay.

Taste: pretty much follows the nose. This comes across as being a beer that is designed to be put away quickly without thinking about it too much.

Aftertaste: light cereal grains here again, without much bitterness.

Mouth feel: light in feel with medium to higher carbonation. Clean and crisp.

Overall: an okay macro lager, but there are better even at this price range at AU$40 a case.

Not a good beer; nothing special. It is over carbonated and a lack of body, metallic - egg smell, and citrus aroma with a very very vague malt flavor,. The strong metallic twang seems to alter the mouthfeel. Pretty bad if I have to be honest.
I would not order or buy another.
