Bottle purchased in South Africa, muled back to Australia by my mum, isn't that nice?
Pours a very pale golden colour, with significant haze and a significant amount of sediment. Head is a very fine but very minimal white. Light body, and no lace at all. Overall, I'm not overly impressed.
Nose is weak and slightly sweet, with a slightly grassy overtone and a butterscotchy, unfermented wort character. Perhaps German in genesis, but it's a pretty amateurish example.
Taste is sharp and slightly keroseney, with a fusel-like solvent astringency, above a buttery but thin sweetness. Some eucalyptus or something fragrant but unpleasant at the same time on the back. Some floury, or yeasty notes finish it off. Blech.
Yeah, this isn't very good. It's not awful, but it's just got nothing but awful flavours—fortunately, nothing is too strong to overpower it, and it just feels pretty bland overall.

Pours a pale gold colour, bit of sediment. Head is listless and small. Lace is thin. Yeah pretty bland-looking.
Smells grainy and bland. Generic herbal hop bitterness is subtle and, otherwise, all light cereal with a touch of honey and puffed rice. Fairly bland and generic; not badly handled.
Taste is horribly sweet and syrupy upfront, big honey note with touch of vanilla-cinnamon and puffed rice. Bitterness comes through, giving it a cough syrup mediciney flavour. All over kind of malt liquory, not so heavy but jut a big rocket fuel kind of sweetness and excess for the point of excess.
Decent texture but a bit thick and gloopy, could use more cut through.
Not a fan. Unnuanced, too sweet, weird by-product flavours and unpleasant.
