This product displays the fullness and balance of CUB's traditional lagers. The fruity/yeasty aroma and increased bitterness produces a tasty drop.

ComradeK (922) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2010
Glass from 750ml bottle. What’s to say, really? Pours a fairly standard clear lager gold, with a decent enough head for a beer of such low calibre. Nothing much discernible on the nose, but there is perhaps some stale bread and a slight metallic note. The taste is in typical pale lager territory, being extremely bland. Some dough in the mid-section and a slight, artificial-feeling, hops taste at the end. The palate is exceptionally watery. Yet another dull macro pale lager.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - NOV 16, 2010
355mL thanks to Brev. Rating #100 for this beer! Pour is clear copper with good white lace. Aroma of sugar, toast, caramel, clean malt. Taste is sweet, some caramel fullness. Actually not bad at all. No brewing flaws. Unoffensive.

Maris (914) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2010
From a 375ml bottle on 23/10/2010. It’s not uncommon to hear people arguing about whether this is better than VB. Which is kinda funny because they’re both equally shite. Has a very slight stale smell. In the mouth, it’s all metallic chemicals, a bit of sweetness, followed by a short, sharp though not altogether pleasant bitterness at the end. Yet another shocker from CUB.

Jade (401) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2010
Clear amber, looks like coloured water. Head vanishes almost immediately. Unpleasant, yeasty aroma. Bitter to the taste, very metallic. No discernable qualities.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2010
Pale gold pour with a small head. Dirty aroma of stale beer, grainy malt and cardboard. Cooked corn and cardboard make up the flavours. Pretty high carbonation.
