Pours a light amber colour, very clear in appearance. No head. Slight bead. I like the colour, I dislike the lack of head.

Honey character on the nose, maybe mild hops towards the back, very little to it though. Smells almost like mead, only not as interesting.

Taste is alright. Mild honey character throughout most of it, even on the finish. No real chemical flavour although bitterness is harsh. Slight bite from the mouthfeel, but mostly smooth. Lightly drinkable, with a somewhat sweet edge. Has more flavour than your cheap Australian lagers, but still lacking. Would be alright if you really needed a drink.

This was best described as the "step-up" from their Bintara lager. The guy at Bintara told me it was called "Australian" specifically because it used Australian Pride of Ringwood hops. He also said this was known as their "premium" lager... whatever that happens to mean.

It has a light golden body, medium carbonation and a filmy loose head.

Very uninspiring nose... A little sugar sweetness, no fragrance, no maltiness. Not a great nose at all.

The taste is not much better. It's probably better than their standard "Lager", but not by much. It has more character, a bit more puckery bitterness, and the extra alcohol helps it a little. Mouthfeel a little lifted, not bad.

It's drinkable. Not great, but drinkable.
