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.

Muggus69 (1198) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003 The "other alternative" to New and VB...for the blind macro swilling masses. Find this one particularly offensive, more skunky than VB. Not sure how that’s possible being practically the same beer afterall...

Flat, watery, no body, highly yeasty with no other flavour but yeast. Don’t get any.

22415brewery (371) - redmond, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Pours from the bottle a medium golden with a slight amber shadow, minimal white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is neutral, slightly dusty, and a little grainy, no noticeable hop notes. Tastes very plain, no distinct malt flavors or esters. Hop presence is equally nil. There really is nothing distinguishing about this beer other than a slight metallic taste in the finish. There has got to be a better alternative In Australia where a bottle of beer will run you $4+ at the grocery store.

Morboso (52) - ECUADOR - OCT 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 one of the best commercial aussie beers of its type and price, but still a fairly boring lager.

Rob_D_UK (782) - Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Only cost me $2 so who can complain? This beer has a light yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a light body.

mattyhennessy (311) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
Clear yellow beer with a white head that dissipates quickly. No flavours that stand out. Reminds me of budweiser. Very little to say about this.

danlo (1160) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle. Golden amber colour, thin white head leaving some lacing and malty, earthy aroma. Taste is malt, biscuit, abit metallic bitterness. Slightly creamy mouth feel, light bodied, medium carbonation. Another bland lager.
