UPDATED: OCT 19, 2003 Well when I first tasted this it didnt seem that bad. But a couple of sessions later and I couldnt stand the stuff. Its aroma puts you off to start with, it has no body (which isnt always bad), then comes the big hit of syrupy -sickness - try drinking a real beer then drinking this - its just not kool. cheers

I think I marginally prefer VB (out of a stubbie at least.) I know I couldn't pick the difference between New/VB/Draught in a blind tasting so I can't really say why, but I just do. The words metallic, fizzy, cidery and chemical come to mind.

CUB's best lager beer. Tastes great without the chemical flavour of VB or melbourne. Goes down easy and is smooth and light.

This beer has a light yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a light body.

One of the all time great tap beers. Seems to have its critics, although I'm buggered if I know what there is to improve. CUB's best effort.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2003 Carlton draught is missing something. Im not sure what it is though. A decent beer, that could be great with a little tweaking by the brewer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2003 A little bit too sweet for a beer and has an aftertaste of honey. A little bit sickly after a while but a full bodied beer that is nothing to write home about. Buy it if you live in Melbourne.

I would rather drink a bottle of cat's urine than this muck. How anyone in their right mind would pay $2.80 for a pot of this shite is beyond me. This stuff should be illegal.

This is a footy beer. Nothing more but strangely nothing better. Also grows in stature when served out of the plastic 425ml cup. Lets face it, this is when it has a similarity to the Belgian beers. Here it is presented beautifully in its own customised vessel. Not like Kwak of course, because it would fall over when perched between your feet back there in Row Q.
