They have stopped making these. Got the last 1 at Catalina Country Club. Wasnt the worst beer ever, probably a good way to get drunk faster while still drinking beer. Overall, tastes like a flat coldy.

OLD NOTES I really don’t know why they bothered, some genius at work in the marketing department there obviously. It doesn’t taste much different from Colds at all, infact, it’s worse! (How is that even possible!?) It is also my belief that a shot of vodka is 1 standard drink, which means this beer should be around 8%. Who are they appealing to!?

Got heaps of free bottles of this rubbish at a uni function... Not much can be said really, its got all the nasty vegetables of carlton cold, as well as a awful cheap wine note that I’ll assume comes from the vodka. Its pale, hardly has any head... nothing good to say about this except that its no longer produced.

Dark Yellow in colouring with a small white head that disappears almost as soon as you pour it. Brew is clear and crisp, but the tasted like a bad decaying flat beer. I love my Vodka - and I suppose there was not enough of in it ... or maybe there was too much of it, which killed the flavour factor. Very disappointing.

Beer AND vodka.. what more could any reasonable alcho want? A fantastic drop, but rather expensive.

I found this one in a small pub in the Dandenongs last weekend and it was not worth anything except the fact that it wont be found again. At least it shows that CUB has feeling. They Knew it was bad all along. No taste, not feel, no palate, no flavour. Why produce it in the first place?

a dry pilsner with a vodka infusion, gimmick all the way, not worth your time or money.

I always thought carlton cold was crap so why did they bother making this one. They ended up giving the stuff away free with a case of carlton cold. Haven't had a decent beer from CUB.

Tastes like beer with vodka, why they ever released this is beyond me. Carlton cold just made worse.
