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.

Another boring mainstream Aussie lager. The bland flavour, soft carbonation, and subtle candy like sweetness makes this beer exceptionally unpleasant.

MarkoNm (1207) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 14, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with slight orange undertone. White head tops is semi-resistant. There is a malty aroma, slightly smelly and some soury feel to it. The taste is malty, sweet and light. A little bitterness in the finish. Not what I expected, but drinkable.

Stale aroma, slight hint of honey and fruit. Clear golden colour with poor head. Honey malt flavor with poor aftertaste. Light body with low carbonation.

Even the unpasteurised freshly brewed version of this beer (available on tap at Beer Deluxe in Melbourne) is still pretty awful. Negligible nose and taste of sweetcorn malts and a touch of hay. Bland.

Tap. Looks like clear beer. Tastes like stale yeast and metal. Very very ordinary

Kita (1372) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle, 0.375l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy malt, hay, dust and mild grassy hops. Clean and bland lager taste with grainy and vegetably notes, crisp and dry mouthfeel with light bitter finish. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Bottle looks nice, beer tastes poor...

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 (379) - 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.
