COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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

Pale golden, clear, medium head. I wouldn’t go so far as calling this "foul", but it is pretty boring. Sweet malt is really all you get for flavour (the same as all corn-adjunct, over-processed pale lagers on the market). I wouldn’t choose to drink it again if an alternative were available, but I wouldn’t turn it down if the beerfridge was empty on a Friday night.
