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 can’t really recall if I have actually drunk it before, but tasting it I can tell that even if I haven’t actually from a bottle or can labelled the same, I’ve sure as shit drunk beer that is exactly the same or so close that the difference is indefinable. It’s 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 it’s still a pretty lame excuse for a beer.
Pale body with a white frothy head.
Aroma of pale malts, grain and grass.
Taste is malty, sweet corn, tiny bit of hops. Johnsense (1624) - - JUN 13, 2017
Light clear gold pour, large rocky head, some lacing. Fairly sweet aroma, grainy, straw. Grainy up front, light corn sweetness, light bittering hops. Light spritzy body. It’s ok for a macro. Wezzielad (22) - Ilkley, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2017
A 4 percent lager in Britain. Compared to Carlimg it’s quite sickly really. You may get a pint that is nice. Honestly this used to be the stuff that I drink when I was 15/16 at the only pub that would serve me, good times. Don’t think this stuff has been bear Australia for a while ( Brewered In Edinburgh and Manchester). I wouldn’t bother with it. It’s okay for a session but it’s usually more expensive than Carling so I would go for the latter. irish17review (8) - IRELAND - MAY 31, 2017 does not count
Nice lager to sip on in a bar but not great if you’re looking to enjoy a few beers. Augdraught1981 (266) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Silky smooth pale lager with no off tastes, and expected high drinkability. Very good on a Sunday afternoon. 3 out of 100, really?

Fosters; commonly referred to as the ’Stralia Budweiser. I suppose that’s partially true; but it does have more flavor and character than most of the macro lagers brewed in The States. Ritzn (1311) - GERMANY - APR 25, 2017
Can, thanks mum. Clear golden with little white head. Aroma is flour hops and a bit corn. Taste is sweet pale malt with some bitter hoppy fresh sourness. Easy drinkable only a little alcoholic dust in the finish. Not bad. Tezminator (225) - AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2017
Faint aroma of sweet malts. Taste is similar with VB-like flavour from the local hops. It is fine, but nothing too great. alrick (149) - FRANCE - MAR 18, 2017
Bière basique australienne, légère, sans arôme ni relief. peu d’intérêt si ce n’est culturel MikeBeermaster (825) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - MAR 15, 2017
ld review, 500ml can from Tesco in Poland. Faint aroma of maltiness. Clear golden in the glass with frothy head. Taste is sweet with notes of esters and maltiness. Crispy and refreshing, but not bad at all.
