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.

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 wasn’t 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 (4103) - 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.

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!

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2004
Draught, at the Paddington Inn, Sydney.
Pale yellow colour with bright white head. Bitter sweet aroma. Bitter flavour to begin with but then a long sweet aftertaste lingers on the palate. Drinking at extreme pace with some old mates, I haven’t yet made up my mind on this beer. All I do know is that the marketing of the stuff has gone crazy since I was last here.

like a VB but more refreshing and more hoppy, but of course, CUB does brew one big batch then ferments it separately according to each beer, so not really surprised.
