1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A crisp dry lager that tastes slightly better and is more refreshing than the regular Carlton draught. There is a slight sweetness to the initial taste and disappointing there is no hop flavour or aroma. Very watery mouthfeel that is typical of lower carbon beers. A cheap man’s afternoon beer

Comes out amber with a bubbly head. Aroma is pretty boring and bland as is the taste with a hint of sweetness in the finish.

Bottle. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is yeasty and dry, and the flavour is bitter, yeasty and dry. Overall an average lager, much better than the current average scores suggest.

A favourite of my partners so as I see it I will always have this over her - something that can be brought up in the heat of an argument just to get a flare-up, haha. 30% less carbohydrates just means lagered to the point of being a shy cousin to ol’ H20 and probably one to come-off second best. It produces up a medium gold, bright and thinly looking with the expected force carbonation lather of soap atop. Manky, cheesy, sweaty socks, burnt toast and vegetal, boiled cabbage nose that I feared was not the worst it could get. Metallic, rusted swarf bin and carbonic acid are a tricky combo to get right and these guys nailed it. Soapy, slick finish where the carbonation dies off completely. Dry, got that right too - low cardboard malts and vegetal notes of the aroma. Sits heavy in the stomach. Don’t know whether ’session’ is the appropriate word to use here. Just can’t do it. On a par with the woeful blue labelled brother Premium Dry. Not beer at all. (355mL, BB 24/01/14, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

Had by the crate in Cairns. A bog standard pale lager with nothing much going for it. If you chill it enough it goes down better than water.

Straight from the can at stereosonic. Has nothing going for it doesn't touch the sides. No flavour and just a mildy bitter piece of crap.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 30/10/2012. Draught at Lions @ Springwood, Brisbane. Poured a clear amber colour with a thin white bubble head that laced poorly. Moderate carbonation. Bland aroma. Taste much the same with a hint of sweetness. Light body. Aroma, taste and palate comparable with other large commercial brewery lagers.
01/02/2013. From bottle. Poured a clear light golden amber with a white, thin, bubbly head that diminished quickly to leave a patchy cover over the beer. Laced while the head remained. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is sweet and bland. Light body (watery). Very much like a number of other CUB beers.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On Tap- Served a light yellow color with a small head that fades quickly to no lacing. Faint aroma of malt sweetness and nothing else. No real flavor, just a bit of sweetness, no real bitterness, but yes it is very dry.
Light body, weak with no backbone. Real waste of time and effort on this beer.

Bottle 330ml. As expected, like making love in a canoe. Light aroma of straw. Taste is sweet and short-lived. Palate is thin and watery. Yellow, with a thin head.
