Swan Draught uses barley sourced exclusively from WA’s world renowned growing fields to produce a golden coloured lager with that famous smooth malty flavour that has made it WA’s No. 1 tap beer. Tasmanian grown hops provide the bitterness to make this a well balanced, smooth and easy drinking draught beer.

KeefOz (1561) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2016
Tasted 4/4/2016. Draught at Caves Hotel, Yallingup, WA. Poured a crystal clear pale amber with 5mm of bright white foam that diminished slowly to a collar that laced well. Carbonation low and coarse. Aroma of pale malt; no obvious hops. Taste of sweetish malt and no real bitterness; goes a bit sour as it warms. Light and thin body. Crisp, smooth and a hint of bitterness on the finish. Typical lager from a macro-brewery.

Goldgelb kaum schaum, Geruch getreidig grasig, Geschmack flach leicht metallisch nicht zu empfehlen in jeder Kneipe gibt es mindestens 1 besseres...

Lager...What more can you say, bland, but goes down easy. Fairly tasty, quenching, slick body, extremely drinkable.

There’s not a lot going for this beer other than to say you’ve tried it. Adjunct characteristics stand out. Little of the cloying sweet side. Bit over carbonated. It’s not good. On the other hand, it is a liquid that won’t kill you, at least not right away. It will give you a minor buzz. Although I can imagine the hangover from this is a mother.

Pretty much the same as Carlton Draught but worse - avoid. Its pretty much defunct now as the old Swan brewery is now nothing more than fancy apartments and fancy commercial business space.

straw gold color, thin bright white head. Visible carbonation. Stale cardboard and sweet corn nose. Sweet corn, cardboard, cabbage and slightly metallic taste. Some hop bitterness in the feel but otherwise highly carbonated and light. Gets sweeter and more metallic as it warms up. Good for a nuclear hot day on the top end but forgettable as heck.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2013 Poured a straw-amber with small loose white head which didnt last. Faint aroma only of malty cardboard. Taste of typical simple, boring pale lager, but thankfully not horrid and actually provided a moderately long clean better finish. Medium bodied, lively carbonation.

Used to smash this beer at uni and that was about it. Still has more character than corona

Hmmm, pretty bad beer. My mate Crano loves this beer and you can always find one in his hand in the back of the car. Weirdo
