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

Pours pale gold with very strong carbonation, a generous white head that sticks around yet looks a tad listless. Not bad but standard.

Actually smells kind of sweet with toffee characters shining dimly through an otherwise bitter adjunct smell. It's all a bit weak. The only reason I get that toffee at all is there is not a lot of adjunct smell. I think you're in trouble when I'm complaining about the weakness of the adjunct aroma.

Taste is again quite sweet for a lager and therefore could almost pass for pleasant. There is, however, a crescendo of bitterness which starts mid-palate and gets stronger, leaving a hang of nasty bitterness. Has a fair amount of flavour which could almost make me forgive that finish.

Mouthfeel is thin, but quite smooth with nothing offensive about it.

Long, long ago I used to believe this was the best beer around. Not meaning to put it too strongly, I can see where I formed that (misguided) opinion. This is not nearly as nasty as other cheap Australian beers and actually, for all its faults it's fairly pleasant drinking.

I still won't drink it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.
