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.

madquacker (1026) - Canberra ACT, - 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.

floydian1 (898) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 9, 2014
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.

M_Sack (341) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2014
Tap. Looks like clear beer. Tastes like stale yeast and metal. Very very ordinary

Kita (973) - 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...

Muggus69 (1132) - 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 (36) - ECUADOR - OCT 17, 2013
UPDATED: APR 30, 2014 one of the best commercial aussie beers of its type and price, but still a fairly boring lager.
