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.

Format: a mid-brown 375mL stubby with the age-old Tooheys New macro label.

Appearance: a solid amber in colour with plenty of chunky macro lager carbonation. A finger of white head drops to a thick cap. Sporadic lacing.

Aroma: an aroma of proper grain (rather than cheap grain and adjuncts). Better than most macro lagers.

Taste: again a touch better with those same flavours - Tooheys New surprises me a little whenever I have it (which is rare). There is a reason why this and VB are two of the most-bought macro lagers in the country.

Aftertaste: more grains and husk here with the slightest touch of hop bitterness. Some sweetness too from indistinct origins.

Mouth feel: moderate in feel with a higher carbonation to bring through that fantastically refreshing crispness.

Overall: Tooheys New continues to surprise me when I occasionally drink it. It is one of the standard Aussie macro lagers, but there is a reason it is one of the mainstays in Australian pubs. It is a definite cut above most standard cheap macro lagers, and decent at AU$45 for a case of 24 x 375mL stubbies. Most importantly, one of my favourite pub beers wouldn't be an option without New (a 50/50 - or Black n Tan for you Americans - with half Tooheys Old and half Tooheys New).
