Plowing through rating the CUB products I come across the Australian beer most commonly known across the globe. As most know, though, it is barely drunk here in its homeland. In fact, I cant really recall if I have actually drunk it before, but tasting it I can tell that even if I havent actually from a bottle or can labelled the same, Ive sure as shit drunk beer that is exactly the same or so close that the difference is indefinable. Its a typical Australian pale lager, no hops in the aroma, just a bit of sulphur and some thin adjuncty sweetness. Flavour contains some PoR bitterness, and thankfully not as much saccharine sweetness as its stablemate VB. Mostly inoffensive, and as the palate becomes saturated it becomes even more so. The ideal drink for any lager lout wanting to down a dozen pints without actually tasting anything. Better than expected (at least I could finish it!), but its still a pretty lame excuse for a beer.

Skunky aroma. Super aqueous, watered down. A skunky palate. Flat like yellow colored water. This beer gives water a bad name.
