COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Carlton Draught provides a crisp mid-palate flavour which is balanced with a clean hop bitterness and a slightly dry finish.

Yep - CUB pale larger to a tee. Pours a decent head but disappears quickly. Some unappealing, dry lacing remains. Copper in colour, very clear and darker than I would typically associate with the style. Nose has some industrial malt sweetness and house style notes. More off putting stale note (malts?...Id love to know how CUB does it). The standard of crap this company puts out never ceases to amaze.

ALLOVATE (2958) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2005
Tasted on Draught and virtually thrown into your face at nearly every pub in Australia. Typical translucent lemon-gold body, with a green tinge. No head passed the soapy kegged gas charge, and little lace. Aroma of a car wreckers lot, oxidised metal, and dank liquor freshly pumped from the Yarra. In the mouth, it had that cheap home brew kit lager flavour, that thin watery unbalanced concoction brewed in a mates back shed. Typical Aussie lager metallic hop feel across the tongue, unconverted malt starch and a sharp carbonic bite in front. Sadly, its not the worst of the Aussie macros!!!

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2005 sampled under the name N.T. Draught - I had this beer many years ago at one time when I was only giving ratings to the beers but was too lazy and stupid to write down my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again.

Ok, given im in Melbourne (Australia), it may just be its omnipresence that makes "pot of Carlton thanks" my beer of choice at many a pub. Its easy to drink, and is completely inoffensive, which means before you know it youve had 8 pots and things are getting a little blurry...good basic tap beer.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2004
Nice clear beer, pale gold in colour. Small white, tight head which dissappears quickly, light, coarse carbonation. Aroma of dried apples and and sweet malt. Apple-like flavour masking anything else from my tastebuds. Thin and watery. Remarkably similar to VB which is also crap.

RichardGretton (4698) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2004
Very active lager with a light hopped aroma and a fairly weak and generally sweet flavour. Overall a weak rating lager.

Not bad actually, I was quite impressed with it. I wasnt too keen on CUB beers especially after I had the putrid VB...Very drinkable.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2004
Tap: Run of the mill mass produced alcohol that happens to be beer. Not much aroma, not really any flavour. Poor.

Nemo (100) - Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2004
Pale Yellow Amber in colouring with a small white long lasting head. Bitter sweet, metallic, chemical aroma. Clean, crisp and bitter in taste. Reliable, unoffensive, cheap beer that does the job well when you after a heavy night on the grog. Good for a standard beer.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUN 25, 2004
Standard pub lager. Sampled on draught at Di Biers in Melbourne, Australia. Very low key beer. Gold body with white head. Smells or rice, skunky malts and hops. Taste is carbonated water and malt. Aftertaste is more pleasant than most cheap beer.
