Easy drinking style. Brewed using the best malted barley and soft bittering hops. Has a naturally, crisp, clean finish.

OLD NOTES OCT 14, 2003 The more premium brother of the Cold, heaven forbid. By no means a premium beer. Quite crisp and nothing really to speak of. Maybe just a tad more character and bite than the Cold, but that means nothing.

Pours a boring yellow with a boring white head. Aroma is boring. Taste is boring. Boring finish. Have I mentioned itís boring?

Bottle. Another ordinary beer. Has a slightly crisper finish over Carlton draught. But I wouldn't bother. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled (thanks Kaj!, enjoyed during the 10th anniversary of RB fame 2Pac). Yellowish golden colour with a small head. Aroma is grains, bread, herbs and still quite refreshing. Flavour is sweet malts, grains, bread, herbs, floral notes and mild notes of toast as well. Rating is approved by mulkku.

355ml bottle. Amber honey colour that is clear and mildly carbonated and does not have much of a head, almost flat looking. Hard to detect any aroma, just a hint of malt poking through. Tastes of custard powder and banana and is light and dry in the mouth.

Had this one during my holiday in Australia april/may 2009. Golden, orange colored brew. No aroma. Watery, dry, bitterness, dusty, dull aftertaste.

The essential beer in every macro range these days is the premium dry lager coming in a clear elongated bottle. Carltonís version tastes like most of the other pale lagers in itís repertoire, with the differences so subtle that Iím sure I couldnít pick them in a blind tasting. In fact, I probably couldnít pick them even in a side by side tasting. I canít say that this is a particularly dry beer, but it isnít as sickly sweet and say a VB. Tasted a bit of cleaning product along with a good dose of corn. It really is pretty poor and, from memory, even worse than TED.

I found this beer very boring to drink. The head diminished quickly but never fully disapeared, the carbonation was barely there and it didnít lace the glass at all... It smelt a bit musky and there was a slight taste of hops. Anyway Iím still learning so donít take my rating too seriously.

Bottled. Thirst-quenching and drinkable, nondescipt and pretty tasteless, like a dry should be I suppose. About a hair different from Tooheyís Extra Dry. Well, I guess by CUB standards itís a balltearer.
