1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Plowing through rating the CUB products I come across the Australian beer most commonly known across the globe. As most know, though, it is barely drunk here in its homeland. In fact, I can’t really recall if I have actually drunk it before, but tasting it I can tell that even if I haven’t actually from a bottle or can labelled the same, I’ve sure as shit drunk beer that is exactly the same or so close that the difference is indefinable. It’s a typical Australian pale lager, no hops in the aroma, just a bit of sulphur and some thin adjuncty sweetness. Flavour contains some PoR bitterness, and thankfully not as much saccharine sweetness as its stablemate VB. Mostly inoffensive, and as the palate becomes saturated it becomes even more so. The ideal drink for any lager lout wanting to down a dozen pints without actually tasting anything. Better than expected (at least I could finish it!), but it’s still a pretty lame excuse for a beer.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale yellow. Patchy white head. Sweet. Wet old cardboard. Corn. Not good. Mildy offensive. Almost as unpleasant as a malt liquor, but without the bonus alcohol. Overall its fine if you get the urge for some good ol’ swill. Chug it and get it over with quick.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Australia’s most famous lager provide a nice foam when pouring. It smells slightly malty and hoppy and also a delicate aroma of flower. Taste have an appropriate malty fullness and a good long hoppy taste. It leaves no bigger impression than any other good thirst quenching lager would do.

Plechovka 440 ml. Svetlozltá farba, hustá biela pena, slabá nasládlá aróma. Nízka rezkosť, sladkastá chuť, bez náznaku horkosti. Nabudúce jedine v prípade totálnej vyprahnutosti...

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is bland adjunct, sulphur, and honey. Taste follows suit and is pretty bland. Appearance is a clear straw with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the famous 25 OZ oil can into a pint glass. This beer is clear yellow with moderate carbonation. It has a slight lager corn flavor and is better had very cold. I know this is the Australian example of Moosehead Beer to Canadians (a not so popular brand exported to the States). An average AAL style beer.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Dark yellow with a Small head. Light aroma of water and malt. Ends with some light bitterness that helps it’s separate from bad American macros. It’s pricey for what it is.
