1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
iím sure most folk at ratebeer have had a moment of slight annoyance when offering a non-beer-person a taste of a good beer. They have stated that it "tastes like beer". Well despite the fact i hate the idea of a generic beer taste, i think i will use it to describe Carlton Draught.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma of weak grainy malt. Taste has slight bitterness and something unpleasantly sweet that is hard to define. I have had worse, but this is not a nice beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Malty aroma with touch of sulfur.
Light amber color with thin head.
Slight bitterness with minor malty palate - an Australian Lion Red clone was the first thing that sprang to mind.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
One time I was out on a pub crawl, and ended up at some place in St. Kilda. This was on tap for $2.50 pots. I had a couple of pots.. and two girls picked me up, took me home to their place. When I got there and sat on their sofa in between them, I started feeling ill and had to leave before I chundered. Dirty lines, maybe.. but have been off this stuff ever since. Typical macro crap, anyhow.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle/stubbie. Poured a crystal clear golden colour with a one-finger bright white foamy head that retained very well and laced OK. Carbonation very high with coarse bubbles giving a coarse mouthfeel. Aroma of metal and a subtle hint of grain; no obvious hops. Taste is bland with a hint of metal, no real bitterness and with a slight acrid tartness. Light, very thin and watery. Crisp, smooth and clean if cold and with a slightly acrid tartness on the finish that becomes more pronounced as it warms. Iím sure itís marginally better on tap.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
375ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a small, lasting white head, a little lacing left behind. Aroma is mildly hoppy, and lightly sweet pale malt. Flavour is slightly sweet malts, grains, the aftertase has a little citric/hoppy bitterness. Not a great lager but at least itís better than Carlton Crown. Got worse as it warmed up so drink it quick.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Went to a really nice heritage pub in the country, and this was the best I could do. Grainy industrial aroma, appley and fusely. Light amber colour. Old school grainy taste... But itís ice cold, right. Sweet and maybe a bit watery in the finish.

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.
