jdpeebs (687) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2012
355ml bottle. A very bland and boring beer. Just another beer to join the low carb fade.

Bottle.... 375 ml... It pours clear yellow with a small white head.... The aroma is malt, light hops.... The flavor is malt, grain, sweet, some hops.... Light bitter finish.... nice everyday beer...

Jade (406) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2011
The funky, unpleasant aroma that is common to many CUB beers hits as soon as the bottle is opened. Not pleasant. Slightly cloudy amber appearance, reasonably high carbonation. Tart, light flavour; not terrible - perhaps a bit watery.

stouby (3686) - Holbćk, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma moderate malty (caramel), light hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet and bitter. Medium body. OK.

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - JUL 4, 2011
Pale yellow color with white foamy head, dough aroma, slighly bitter hops taste, abrupt finish. Generic beer but not bad.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2011
375ml bottle, 4.6% a/v. Pours a slightly dark lager colour, with a mediocre white head. Aroma is very average lager fair, nothing worth noting at all. Taste is also very average however well balanced, and a good every day brew. Aftertaste is very normal and nothing worth commentig on. Overall.. pretty average.

Stew41 (1724) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2011
Kinda lke Carlton Draft off the tap (think lifeless slightly stale malt character). Nose isn’t too bad with a mild hoppy note. Notwithstanding the crap flavours there is an attractive crispness in the structure.

ALLOVATE (2336) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2011
Bottle into its own glass. Doesn’t appear bright, there is a mild haze (chill haze?) to it. Forced carbonation plays with the soda-pop bubbles evident in its medium gold body. A thin lather of white tops it off but is short lived. Herbal, peppery and weedy nose, very clean. Mildly sweet, biscuity malt start, dries out from then on, the body quite light and carbonation adequate and spritzy. Lime-like sourness down the sides, peppery back-end with a short bitter bite on the swallow. Ends crisp, clean and vacant. It has flavour, merited, a lot better than its woeful green big brother. Can’t complain on this one! (35,5cL, BB 05/06/11, Thirsty Camel Butler)
