0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2013 I find it unbelievable that many Aussies continue to drink this by choice, especially now that we have so many good / craft beers to choose from. Tasteless on the best of days, putrid flat pond water on most others. Please don’t judge our beers on this mass market garbage. Warning-more than one of these induces a really bad headache, carry some Nurofen if you’re planning to drink it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Stubbie bottle) Brought to us from the fine gents @ Carlton United - who gave the world the awesome and iconic VB . Oh sure , the chemicals , vomit and pissy notes that I love in Victoria Bitter were evident but maybe just lacking the gross uniting sweetness that makes VB good , this was more sour an lactic that I like in easy drinking piss swill . I drank this while sadly watching the Aussies knock England outta the rugby World Cup .

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Alexandra Hotel, Leura, Blue Mountains NSW on 14th September 2015. Gold with lasting shallow white foam and no lacing. Sweet toffee aroma. light citrus and sweet grape flavour in-mouth. Lightly floral and fruity finish. Light mouthfeel and insubstantial body, however I found the ale refreshing after a walk in the Blue Mountains.

A horror beer. If it’s the only option make sure this piss is cold to get it down. Be prepared for a headache the next day.

Tap - pours gold white head, bit sweet, bit bland. Not a great deal to say.

Often the only option. Tinny taste, best part is the questions under the cap.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tap. Pours clear golden with a small head. Canny aroma and taste. Slight hints of lager characteristics if you look carefully, but mostly it?s water with bubbles and alcohol.

well, my Dad likes it... you’ll have to ask him why. If you drink it cold enough, maybe you can get away with it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Whacko the diddle-o! Another hugely popular offering from CUB. Smell from bottle is all chemicals but glass is better, slight sweetness/spice. Light amber with bubbly head. Tastes of very little actually. And the palate is nowhere near as offensive as VB. Hardly any cooked vegetables (still some) and a tiny hop bitterness. Not as bad as I feared.

More old Aussie pale lager crap from CUB. Years ago I drank this and got shocking hangovers, it is utterly disgusting and drank by an ocean of idiots. Avoid.
