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

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 doesnít last forever.

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 (412) - 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.

Draught. A pretty crap pale lager with minimal aromas and taste. Pours clear dark yellow with no head. I get wet cardboard on the nose and faint sweet corn malts on the tongue. No hop presence to speak of. Wet watery mouthfeel with light body. Nothing "dry" about it.

Itís not the worst beer Iíve ever had but it gave the title a red hot go. If Iím lucky Iíll never have to drink it again.

StuffWine (137) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2014
Poured clear yellow (and oddly green tinged) with coarse-grained head that left quickly. Aroma skunky vegetation, one dimensional. Taste minimal but with an odd corn and candy sweetness which should not be there in a dry brew. Lively carbonated, thin bodied but does have a moderately long dry finish. Never again.

Another in the line of really unspectacular pale lagers by CUB. Not much to say but "avoid".

Bottle format Clear darker straw color. Thin white head. Very fizzy looking. Nose is biscuit malt , caramel, sweetness and cooked vegetables. Obviously far better cold than warm. Taste is a lot of biscuit and caramel. Slightly sweet and no bitterness. Slightly thin and watery but serves its purpose well. A decent low carb beer with some hints of flavor. Better than expected.
