UPDATED: AUG 7, 2013 If youíre dying of thirst its worth a punt - tasteless, horrendous excuse for a beer. Itís worse than Carlton Draught, which is something I didnít believe was possible. Have some mouthwash handy.

750ml bottle into glass. Has that chemical vegetable smell most CUB beers have. Reminds me a little of chlorine. Yellow/amber with thin white head. Highly carbonated. Taste is sweet then WHAM! full on tinny vegetable aftertaste. Iíve always wondered what the difference between this and VB was, now I know. This is slightly less gag-inducing.

Can, pours golden with frothy head that disappears. Light carbonation. Honeycomb aroma. Very easy drinking sweet drop with dry malty aftertaste. Visitor to Melbourne so had to try...

Somehow this piece of vomit became the hipster/musician beer in Melbourne, maybe because you get it as a rider when playing in an unknown indie band in some hole on Smith st. I could make a better homebrew than this using a black and gold ringwood ale kit and a kilo of white sugar. Utter rubbish.

Stale aroma with some malt. Clear golden colour with good head. Bitter flavor throughout but mostly stale. Light to medium body with medium carbonation.

Dogbrick (8950) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2014
This beer pours a clear copper color with a thin white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Light-bodied with a slightly metallic character and flavors of overripe fruit and caramel. The finish is stale malt and fruit. Not good.

375ml bottle. Pretty insipid stuff. Tastes grainy, slightly metallica with subtle fruit characters trying to come through. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and finishes with an unfortunately length grainy, pithy bitterness.

Pours a horrible pale lager. Aroma is pale lager and taste is pale lager. What else do you need to know? Itís horrid! Avoid!!
