COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Carlton Draught is one of Australia's biggest selling tap beers. This traditional full strength lager, available nationally, is renowned for delivering "brewery fresh" taste. Carlton Draught provides a crisp mid-palate flavour which is balanced with a clean hop bitterness and a slightly dry finish.

Ok, given iím in Melbourne (Australia), it may just be itís omnipresence that makes "pot of Carlton thanks" my beer of choice at many a pub. Itís easy to drink, and is completely inoffensive, which means before you know it youíve had 8 pots and things are getting a little blurry...good basic tap beer.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2004
Nice clear beer, pale gold in colour. Small white, tight head which dissappears quickly, light, coarse carbonation. Aroma of dried apples and and sweet malt. Apple-like flavour masking anything else from my tastebuds. Thin and watery. Remarkably similar to VB which is also crap.

Very active lager with a light hopped aroma and a fairly weak and generally sweet flavour. Overall a weak rating lager.

Not bad actually, I was quite impressed with it. I wasnít too keen on CUB beers especially after I had the putrid VB...Very drinkable.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2004
Tap: Run of the mill mass produced alcohol that happens to be beer. Not much aroma, not really any flavour. Poor.

Nemo (100) - Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2004
Pale Yellow Amber in colouring with a small white long lasting head. Bitter sweet, metallic, chemical aroma. Clean, crisp and bitter in taste. Reliable, unoffensive, cheap beer that does the job well when you after a heavy night on the grog. Good for a standard beer.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUN 25, 2004
Standard pub lager. Sampled on draught at Di Biers in Melbourne, Australia. Very low key beer. Gold body with white head. Smells or rice, skunky malts and hops. Taste is carbonated water and malt. Aftertaste is more pleasant than most cheap beer.

Geiserich (4122) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 20, 2004
Aroma is inconspicuously, relatively tasteless. If the finish would not be, it would be a normal average beer. Peculiar Sherry aftertaste, which remains sticking on the tongue.

madquacker (1112) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2004
What demon from hell created this? It has a putrid chemical taste that makes even VB taste good. A sickly claw at the back of your mouth starts the taste followed by a robust lingering taste of vomit. The vomit is complex and swirls around the palate before finishing up as metal shavings. Truely dire.

Typically CUB - Clean crisp and bitter. Best drunk in large quantities. Easier on the palette than most of its brewery bedfellows. Great price!
