Kurtos (113) - Sydney, - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pale straw colour. Aroma. Faint citrus aroma. Flavour. Nothing that jumps out to me, and nothing that is really obvious, but has sweet grain flavours and slight hoppy bitterness. Overall. This beer is easy drinking and has characteristics of typical mass produced lagers, better then your vb or tooheys, but not much better, and in my opinion isn’t as bad as people say and isn’t as good as some other people say.

This is what I drank when I believed the marketing and didn’t know what beer could taste like. That was 20 years ago between the ages of 18 -24. Just the same as most other mass produced Australian Lager. I often wonder if Fosters and Crown are the same product in different packaging so a premium can be charged for Crown. If you do have one, have it very, very cold and on a hot day where you are thirsty enough for anything to taste good. (i.e. take out of fridge and place in freezer, go mow the lawn for 30 minutes, then drink.) To my mind that is the only way you will appreciate it.

sm89walt (1792) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle. A dull but inoffensive lager with grain, corn, lemon and vegetal characters across both nose and palate. Light to Mellon body, medium carbonation with a short, moderate intensity pithy hop finish.

stevoj (2663) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 1, 2015
Nothing special here, worse than average pale lager. Watery, musty, grainy. Give this on a pass.

Fisler (131) - GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
Bernsteinfarben, Schaum hält sich gut. Aber bei mir zeigte sich ein eigenartiger, orangener Fleck im Schaum - Farbstoff? In der Nase Malz, im Geschmack Malzbier, süß werdend, leicht bitter im Abgang. Sehr süffig.

TedE (368) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2015
On tap @ club central Hurstville. Sweet sweet nose. Small head. Little carbonation. Little lacing. Taste is full on bubblegum Sweetness followed by a little hops & then the usual CUB mixture of rubber, metals & vegetables in the finish. Funnily enough this tastes better than the bottled version. Overpriced, overhyped.

Clear golden, small white head. Sweet malt, cereal aroma. Light, watery and malty flavour. Sweet, sticky finish.

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle, 4.9%. Caramelly aroma. Clear golden colour. Small white head. Bready flavour, also caramelly. Not very bitter, but has a little paper in the finish.

Bamsen78 (3955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with small white head. Sweetish aroma of malt and yeast. Sweetish malty and estery aroma with faint hoppy notes. Sweetish afteraste. Just drinkable.

waiake (343) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 2, 2014
semi-sweet slight malty aroma, mild taste is crisp & fresh, finish is dry & lightly bitter, overall an average unexciting mainstream drinkable lager

from the outside; it looks like something that was given as a gift from the beer gods, something one would save/hide money from their significant other in order to buy, like a kid saving 5c coins for the royal show or whatever. The truth is is that this beer is a gigantic piece of shit with an armani suit on. No discernible aroma, typical of aussie lagers, an over-carbed mouth and tastes of piss-weak POR hopping with a dry finish.
