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.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2013 I find it unbelievable that many Aussies continue to drink this by choice, especially now that we have so many good / craft beers to choose from. Tasteless on the best of days, putrid flat pond water on most others. Please dont judge our beers on this mass market garbage. Warning-more than one of these induces a really bad headache, carry some Nurofen if youre planning to drink it.

Tank Beer at Plough Inn, Brisbane. A little smoother than the bottled variety, but not much else to say. Metallic aroma, a touch of bitterness to taste, and lightly carbonated in the mouth.

This is unpleasant and should be avoided. There is really no reason to drink this at any point of your life except at a wedding where it is the only beer on tap. And even then, you should go for the wine. Unpleasant urinal aftertaste. Beer can only take so much punishment before it becomes a broken husk of a beverage, and the poor Carlton Draught has reached that point and then some. Light, fizzy body. An unfortunate display all round.

Grzesiek79 (4164) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 12, 2016
Nuda, nuda, nuda. Nieciekawe piwo. Typowy przemyslowy koncerniak. Lager masowy zero aromatow uchwytnych, pianka niewielka, nawet nie zdazy czlowiek sie jej przyjzec a juz znika. Kolor jasny, o odcieniu wiedenskiego lagera. Smak jakby syropu ktory jest w puszkach kukurydzy, troche nieswiezego koncentratu pomidorowego, dziwnie mi sie kojarzylo, na zakonczenie po przelknieciu zupa pomidorowa ze spora dawka ryzu. Kompletne kiepskie piwo.

Aroma of weak grainy malt. Taste has slight bitterness and something unpleasantly sweet that is hard to define. I have had worse, but this is not a nice beer.

Skarecrow (495) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 24, 2016
375ml bottle. Malty aroma with touch of sulfur. Light amber color with thin head. Slight bitterness with minor malty palate - an Australian Lion Red clone was the first thing that sprang to mind.

One time I was out on a pub crawl, and ended up at some place in St. Kilda. This was on tap for $2.50 pots. I had a couple of pots.. and two girls picked me up, took me home to their place. When I got there and sat on their sofa in between them, I started feeling ill and had to leave before I chundered. Dirty lines, maybe.. but have been off this stuff ever since. Typical macro crap, anyhow.

Probada en botella de 375 ml. Clásica Lager industrial. Sirve para acompañar una pizza, no mucho más. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (1696) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle/stubbie. Poured a crystal clear golden colour with a one-finger bright white foamy head that retained very well and laced OK. Carbonation very high with coarse bubbles giving a coarse mouthfeel. Aroma of metal and a subtle hint of grain; no obvious hops. Taste is bland with a hint of metal, no real bitterness and with a slight acrid tartness. Light, very thin and watery. Crisp, smooth and clean if cold and with a slightly acrid tartness on the finish that becomes more pronounced as it warms. Im sure its marginally better on tap.

LazyPyro (784) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a small, lasting white head, a little lacing left behind. Aroma is mildly hoppy, and lightly sweet pale malt. Flavour is slightly sweet malts, grains, the aftertase has a little citric/hoppy bitterness. Not a great lager but at least its better than Carlton Crown. Got worse as it warmed up so drink it quick.
