2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellowish in colouring with a small white cloudy head. Tinnie, malty sort of aroma. Bland in flavour with a hint of fruity, almost bittery taste. Although the beer is Crisp and clean, its got nothing much else to offer.

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 it’s boring?

Bottle. Another ordinary beer. Has a slightly crisper finish over Carlton draught. But I wouldn't bother.

Was drinking this when I stepped up from Toohey’s when I was 16-17. Can’t find it anywhere now thankfully

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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
The essential beer in every macro range these days is the premium dry lager coming in a clear elongated bottle. Carlton’s version tastes like most of the other pale lagers in it’s repertoire, with the differences so subtle that I’m sure I couldn’t pick them in a blind tasting. In fact, I probably couldn’t pick them even in a side by side tasting. I can’t say that this is a particularly dry beer, but it isn’t 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.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I found this beer very boring to drink. The head diminished quickly but never fully disapeared, the carbonation was barely there and it didn’t lace the glass at all... It smelt a bit musky and there was a slight taste of hops. Anyway I’m still learning so don’t take my rating too seriously.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Thirst-quenching and drinkable, nondescipt and pretty tasteless, like a dry should be I suppose. About a hair different from Toohey’s Extra Dry. Well, I guess by CUB standards it’s a balltearer.
