1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I found this beer very boring to drink. The head diminished quickly but never fully disapeared, the carbonation was barely there and it didn’t lace the glass at all... It smelt a bit musky and there was a slight taste of hops. Anyway I’m still learning so don’t take my rating too seriously.
OLD NOTES OCT 14, 2003
The more premium brother of the Cold, heaven forbid. By no means a premium beer. Quite crisp and nothing really to speak of. Maybe just a tad more character and bite than the Cold, but that means nothing. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2013
Pours a boring yellow with a boring white head. Aroma is boring. Taste is boring. Boring finish. Have I mentioned it’s boring? jdpeebs (698) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle. Another ordinary beer. Has a slightly crisper finish over Carlton draught. But I wouldn't bother.

Was drinking this when I stepped up from Toohey’s when I was 16-17. Can’t find it anywhere now thankfully oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2012
Bottled (thanks Kaj!, enjoyed during the 10th anniversary of RB fame 2Pac). Yellowish golden colour with a small head. Aroma is grains, bread, herbs and still quite refreshing. Flavour is sweet malts, grains, bread, herbs, floral notes and mild notes of toast as well. Rating is approved by mulkku.

355ml bottle. Amber honey colour that is clear and mildly carbonated and does not have much of a head, almost flat looking. Hard to detect any aroma, just a hint of malt poking through. Tastes of custard powder and banana and is light and dry in the mouth. NoiZe (2394) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2009
Had this one during my holiday in Australia april/may 2009. Golden, orange colored brew. No aroma. Watery, dry, bitterness, dusty, dull aftertaste. bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2007
The essential beer in every macro range these days is the premium dry lager coming in a clear elongated bottle. Carlton’s version tastes like most of the other pale lagers in it’s repertoire, with the differences so subtle that I’m sure I couldn’t pick them in a blind tasting. In fact, I probably couldn’t pick them even in a side by side tasting. I can’t say that this is a particularly dry beer, but it isn’t as sickly sweet and say a VB. Tasted a bit of cleaning product along with a good dose of corn. It really is pretty poor and, from memory, even worse than TED. DrunkenCumquat (86) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2005
Bottled. Thirst-quenching and drinkable, nondescipt and pretty tasteless, like a dry should be I suppose. About a hair different from Toohey’s Extra Dry. Well, I guess by CUB standards it’s a balltearer.
