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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from BWS 021215. Even when you know it isn’t going to be good it still doesn’t quite prepare you the horrible taste of this beer. It is so bad that it makes the face contort. While it may look like beer that is about as close as it gets.

Looks the go but smells skunky and oxidised. Flavour boring. Have I written the minimum yet? Good. I can move on to something else. Incidentally, putting this beer in a clear bottle was a dumb idea Carlton.

stevoj (4029) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 7, 2015
Not much here but cold thirst quenching liquid. Faint malt aroma, taste is absent due to temperature coming out of tap. Finish also non-existant. Gods quaff if you’re thirsty

TedE (1015) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2015
700 ml bottle into glass. Slight, slight tinny hop nose. Flat amber beer with lasting sudsy white head. Tastes like rusty nail water. Classic CUB finish, all cooked vegetables. Luckily it doesn’t last forever.

sm89walt (1972) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2014
Keg - The Newport Arms, Newport, Sydney. A clear golden orange with a small but lasting, creamy and lacing white head. Aromas of grain, corn and biscuity malt that follow through onto the palate. Light body, medium to full carbonation finishing with a short, gentle bitterness.

Moebbels (728) - FINLAND - JUL 27, 2014
A clear dark yellow body and specks of white foam that leaves some lacing. Nose is malty with a hint of citrus and some buttery notes. Taste has a sweet malty taste and a crisp, dry finish. Carbonation is soft and lively, mouthfeel a bit thick and cloying. A basic hot day thirst killer.
