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 canít really recall if I have actually drunk it before, but tasting it I can tell that even if I havenít actually from a bottle or can labelled the same, Iíve sure as shit drunk beer that is exactly the same or so close that the difference is indefinable. Itís 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 itís still a pretty lame excuse for a beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: clear pale gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing rapidly to a thin cap, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: adjunct corn syrup, grass, light vegetal. (4/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, low bitter. (3/10) Light body, lively carbonation, sweet medium duration finish. (2/5)
Very much a SABMiller product. Any character this might once have had has been pretty firmly stamped out - if not by the SABMiller ownership, than by the fact that this is brewed in the US under license. Hey, I knew it was gonna be shit going in, so Iím not disappointed. I was thirsty, now Iím not, so thatís kind of a win, right? And letís be honest, the big-ass oilcan is fun. Cheap garbage, at a cheap price. (8/20)

I take this opportunity to reiterate my point from a previous rating of the premium ale in that If you are going to smash macro beer then there is no better than the oil can! The lager is a little more friendly being lighter bodied and slightly cleaner in taste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Draught at Hotel Vivanta By Taj, Gurgaon, India, 5 August 2016) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with bread, grain, hay and boiled vegetables. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of bread, grain, corn, grass and typical macro notes. Medium body, fairly dry. Bland and boring.

Somewhat watery lager. And I thought that it lost even more in the taste when served chilled. Quite boring, and nowadays I rather go with Karjala from my local store even though you get Foster for 1Ä as well.

Bottle - Clear pale yellow colour, small white head. weak malty aromas with some sweetish corn and some weak hops. Taste is quite blank, and a bit too sweetish. Light body, average carbonation, watery mouthfeel and dry finish. Not recommended.

Token bad beer, not much else to say. Worse than every mass produced american lager, by quite a bit.

En tynd omgang the (eller Ýl), har lidt smag af humle, men ellers ikke noget der smager af andet end "festival-Ýl".
