COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Carlton Draught is one of Australia's biggest selling tap beers. This traditional full strength lager, available nationally, is renowned for delivering "brewery fresh" taste. Carlton Draught provides a crisp mid-palate flavour which is balanced with a clean hop bitterness and a slightly dry finish.

This is the beer of choice for white supremacists, rioters and the Bra boys. Goes down very well with the drunken mob, and assists in fueling pent up racial tension. Although the advice is to serve in a dimpled mug, straight out of the bottle is often preferred. See http://network.news.com.au/image/0,10114,5085625 endorsement.

I can’t really think of anything nice to say about this lager except that it has a decent ad campaign. Sweet nutty taste with boring hop bitterness, about as good as any other Aussie macro junk.

ahh carlton draught. Here is a perfect beer for guzzling. It isn’t too sweet, bitter, malty or fizzy, it is semi flat, slightly hopped and served best cold. very few beers allow you to guzzle 20 pots in a night, but this one does. Yes there is cane sugar and nasty Pride of Ringwood hops, but on a 40 degree day in a beer garden, it is amazingly approachable. That said it still gets a crap rating cos it ain’t that special

The old standby for me. If there is nothing else to drink, I’ll have one of these please. Due to it’s cheapness, it is my beer of choice when out on the town. It’s like VB but less... crap. It can be actually very nice and refreshing if you are feeling a bit arid. At home I try to do better than this if I have more than $5 to my name

Clear golden color, short head. Not much aroma, because it is served very cold. Bitter and dry taste. Bit crisp and dry palate.

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. This is my standard review for all "two-star-or-less" piss.

Honestly quite tasty when straight from the brewery, tap, my mouth. Although it is very mono flavoured. It doesnt require a good togue to taste it. Its got the typical ringwood taste too common in CUB however from the tap and its price... its well worth it compared to the others around.... Birrabella lygon $4 a pint!

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2005 Canned. Fizzy deep golden, no head. A light orangey hop aroma over an industrial, fizzy, medim sweet body. Very low bitterness.

Is ok for the mass produced and when you have run out of beers. Best drunk very cold.

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?...I’d love to know how CUB does it). The standard of crap this company puts out never ceases to amaze.
