Dry (of course) slightly nutty, other than that rather plain, that said, it's a very drinkable beer, it won the best dry lager section at the world beer cup in 98, so it can't be that bad.
good session beer.

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.

From my souvenirs, I try this one during a game of card. This is the dry version of Tooheys family; taste good, easy to drink. But its not a beer od fine degustation. the apparence is very light yellow. mid carbonation. I didtn notice the smell to be honest, probably light, but it taste alright, quit easy to drink and, yeah thats it..Tooheys dry..it said it all. not bad..

Poured a light copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a clean malt aroma and a subtle hop.

The taste was light and balanced with a dry and clean finish.

The mouthfeel was clean and dry.

Overall a very drinkable lager if served ice cold. A good summer lawnmower beer.

Its crisp, dry finish is achieved by an extended fermentation, ensuring minimal residual fermentable sugars. Wonderful fruity, malty notes accompany a mellow middle palate, leaving a clean aftertaste.

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.

Nothing impressive about it, but it's easy to drink. It's good for a hot day because you can slam them down. Pours a light caramel colour. Tight head that faded away but left some lace. Not much in the way of smell or flavour in it at all, but no smell or flavour is better than bad smell or flavour.

weak tastes, hints of wateryness, unimpressive appearence, virtually no smell. Drinkable due to price and inoffensiveness. Clear bottle attractive but stupid. Would drink if free but would never pay for it. Certainaly a more good australian beer, but thats not saying much.

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.
