Clear golden color, short head. Not much aroma, because it is served very cold. Bitter and dry taste. Bit crisp and dry palate. DuffMan (10429) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 24, 2005
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. xerox51 (11) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2005
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! omhper (25117) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2005
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. PintTester (11) - USA - APR 13, 2005
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. ALLOVATE (3015) - 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, it’s not the worst of the Aussie macro’s!!!

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. Juz (13) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2005
Ok, given i’m in Melbourne (Australia), it may just be it’s omnipresence that makes "pot of Carlton thanks" my beer of choice at many a pub. It’s easy to drink, and is completely inoffensive, which means before you know it you’ve 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.
