375ml pull-tab can from Bottle Mart, Port Douglas, Australia.

Insipid with a cheap malt taste at its core (6-row would be my guess) and some odd vague breadiness/doughiness towards the finish. In short, it's pretty bad, but it isn't syrupy or watery so I suppose it's drinkable. In any case, I reckon going off memory it's the worst Australian beer I've tried to date.

Terrible but a bit less terrible than Crown Lager. Not much else to really say. It's mega dry and seems to have been pasteurized for at least 1 year, maybe more

Tooheys New. The pride of New South Wales. ANother mainstream Aussie adjunct lager, it's a NSW icon, much like VB is to Victoria, XXXX Queensland, Emu Export to WA and West End to SA. It's not something i've had in a while, as previously I found it too sweet for my liking. But let's give it a fair crack...

Look: Standard Aussie Macro lager. Deep Golden Straw, filtered, highly carbonated. Head was non existent and has faded to a thin foam on top. Lots of cascading bubbles rising to the top. Standard stuff.

Smell: Wet grassy hops, from the standard Pride of Ringwood hops, which also gives a slight sour lemon/citrus nose, pale malt sweetness. Smells like an Aussie adjunct lager

Taste: Heavy biscuit malt and grain flavour throughout the sip, a tiny fizz of bitterness towards the end with a slight citrus twang. Pretty clean and smooth. Carbonation is heavy, and takes over the flavour of the beer quickly.

Feel: Highly carbonated, so refreshing when drunk ice cold. It's clean, easy drinking especially if you're just after something to drink without thinking about complex flavours.

Overall: it's better than what I remember from my young adult days of drinking this stuff because it was one of the cheaper options on the market, but it's pretty bland to be honest. There's not a lot going on flavour profile wise, and the heavy carbonation does not assist in keeping the flavours around. Having said that, you need to drink this ice cold - much like VB as once it warms up it starts to turn proper funky. A decent enough lager to quaff quickly on a hot summers day,

Pours pale golden with plenty of carbonation rising. Decent 1 finger head that has good lasting power.

Aroma of corn, light malt and slightly bready.

Taste is of light malt, corn, and somewhat grassy. Rather sweet. Tastes better than expected (expectations were low).

Mouthfeel is light body and lightly cleansing. Somewhat dry in the mouth.

Overall, a decent hot weather beer. Maybe slightly better for the style than most. Still, nothing to get too excited about.

Gold in color with a half inch of off white covering the top. The aroma is of corn and that’s it. I’m tasting some corn and light malt. There’s a trace of grassy hops. The mouth is highly quaffable and thin.

From can, pours Amber with thin white head which fades away very quickly. Aroma of grain, hops. Taste is some malts and a little hop bitterness. Not to bad.
