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.

One of the best beers i have ever tasted, by the way, was reading a rating on this beer, this is not a light beer.

when was growing up (in Sydney in the 70s) we only had about a dozen beers to choose from. i didn’t know any better. i remember the first time my Dad brought home a six pack of carlton draught. it was in a white can, with a cerulean symbol and a picture of a glass of golden beer. i remember thinking it was by far the best beer i had ever tasted. now that i know a bit more, i know that i like the "diacetyl" taste that is prominent in this beer. i still find it lively, refreshing and reminiscent of those "heady" days of youth, university, young women, lebanese restaurants (all you could eat for $2) etc.

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.

CUB's best lager beer. Tastes great without the chemical flavour of VB or melbourne. Goes down easy and is smooth and light.

One of the all time great tap beers. Seems to have its critics, although I'm buggered if I know what there is to improve. CUB's best effort.

Not a bad drop, but definitely better from the tap. Served at the AFL so gets plenty of attention and consumption.

Ok, given i’m in Melbourne (Australia), it may just be it’s omnipresence that makes "pot of Carlton thanks" my beer of choice at many a pub. It’s easy to drink, and is completely inoffensive, which means before you know it you’ve had 8 pots and things are getting a little blurry...good basic tap beer.
