Kurtos' rating

Kurtos (108) - 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.

TedE (226) - 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.

martin00sr (1065) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Clear golden, small white head. Sweet malt, cereal aroma. Light, watery and malty flavour. Sweet, sticky finish.

MiP (13912) - 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 (3659) - 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 (286) - 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

hank37 (140) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2014
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.

Capa (2084) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 18, 2014
Nothing special. Slightly creamy texture. A bit sweet and fruity in the finish with light hop crispness.

ATulloch (127) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle at home. Poured a light golden with little to no head. Not really any aroma and very weak water taste. Not nice

The gold label tries to convey that this is a good quality beer, but don’t be fooled. Just more boring piss from Carlton breweries

JaKeAFC (638) - ITALY - JUL 20, 2014
37.5 cl bottle from Wellcome, in Hong Kong, 4.9%. Pale gold color, short white head. Lagery and hoppy in the nose. Aroma is focuses on bittering elements, with a noticeable amount of hops, then metallic and a bit soapy. Malts profile is under cover. Taste is bitter, crisp, dry bitter finish, watery texture. Actually this seems close to a pilsener, Quite clean.
