Pours a dark golden color with faint white head that seems to melt away in seconds. The smell is slightly metallic and slightly yeasty. The taste is a little better, a little sweetness, some bitterness, no real malt/hop flavor though. Mouthfeel is watery, very watery. As for drinkability, I suppose if you were looking for something that didn't taste much like anything, this would be your beer. That's not what I'm looking for, however.

I just don't get it, all tooheys beers taste the same, this is just really bland and once again really chemically, i won't be visiting the brewery anytime soon.

I will have to give props to Tooheys for saying that they have really good quality control for making each and every beer taste exactly the same (with the exception of Tooheys Old). Chemical taste, plastic, etc etc. Once again please don't drink this.

This pours a light golden colour with a big fluffy white head that disappears quickly.

Sweet & metallic mostly but there is a whiff of something like rotten egg in there too. Horrible.

On the palate it's the metallic sharpness that dominates for me. Not as sweet as I expected. Totally devoid of any flavour that you would like to find in beer.

Thin at best.

Horrible beer.

Obviously I enjoyed this more than the previous reviewers.
It is dark gold in colour and looks faily standard , plain and ordinary.
The smell is minimal is watery and inoffensive.
The taste is what surprised me .It doesnt actually have a lot of flavour but what thee is seems principly hop in derivation.They add bitterness and some grassy root vegetable tones (albeit very much in the background)
The pleasing aspect is it gives this beer some individuality asthere is no maltiness that I could taste.
It is a pleasing difference.
The mouthfeel is watery and probably overcarbonated.
This beer has a position in beer drinking for me.
For a quick guzzle on a hot day when you still have more work to do it seems that this would be more than adequate

375ml can. Clear amber colour with a thick white head and mild carbonation. Aroma of wet cardboard and straw. Unpleasant and inviting. Not a bad taste for a midstrength. Dry in the mouth with a good mouthfeel. More flavour than some midstrength beers.
