Tooheys New

Well, it is what it is. Keep expectations low and you’ll not be disappointed IMO.
Purchased as a single from Total Wine in Kennesaw, GA, USA. $1.99 I think.
375 mL bottle, semi-stubbie appearance. I like the label and colors.
Drank a lot of Tooheys (amongst others) on my visit to Australia back in the early 90’s and this is really a nostalgia purchase for me.
Appearance is good with a nice head, decent retention and surprisingly good lace. Mid-level carbonation and golden clarity; good looker.
Sweet, corny nose but not offensive. Above average for the style I would say.
Tastes are pretty sweet, malt based and largely without hop presence except for a tiny bitterness waaaay back in the finish. Not much, but about standard for the style.
Easy drinking, simple macro style offering that in Australian (or Georgian) heat would do the job. Expect little and you’ll be happy, it took me back and I enjoyed the experience.
