drpimento (3376) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Poured at a good temperature with a mammoth, thick, foamy, frothy, billowy, off-white head (suspect foaming agents) and lots of lace. Color is a clear yellow. Aroma reminds me of a common lager with a bit o hop. Flavors like nose, bitter, sweet, and tang are actually fairly balanced, adjuncts are present, as are off flavs, body/carbonation are soft. Finish is like flavor. I just want to get it over.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2013
A slightly sweeter brew than most pale lagers. There is a little fruitiness in the aroma and taste. A pale light brown colour with an off white head. Better than the average Australian draught, but still a mass produced brew

22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Poured straight from a can, a medium-golden yellowish hue, very little head, very clear. Although they call it a bitter, its truly a pale australian lager in style. Theres a definite fruity yeasty aroma that comes forth, a little grassy, some light cracker. Flavor is pretty straightforward, slightly malty, a little light biscuit, no distinguishing hop flavors or aroma. Somewhat of a watery finish, a fair bit of bitterness rounds out whatever sweetness there is. An average pale lager at best, and definitely better than a few other mass produced lagers from Oz.

Pours clear amber with a small white head. Smells of malt and hay and tastes pretty similar.

danlo (2856) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2013
375ml bottle. Clear amber colour, foam white head leaving alittle lacing and aroma of malt, grain, abit metallic. Taste is malt, grain, corn, sweetish & slightly fruity with earthy, cardboard notes and a lingering light bitterness. Light bodied, high carbonation, dry bitter finish. Standard bland pale lager.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2013 If youre dying of thirst its worth a punt - tasteless, horrendous excuse for a beer. Its worse than Carlton Draught, which is something I didnt believe was possible. Have some mouthwash handy.

StuffWine (157) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2013
Poured orange and needed vigorous encouragement to form a loose white head that dissapated quickly. Aroma wheet, cardboard, and something unpleasantly sour. Tast bready and simple, nothing else. Palate water, thin, little carbonation, almost no finish. Will not drink again.

As much as it sucks I personally believe it's the best beer CUB produce. As watery as it is I like its balance and love to just drain 1 or 2 on a hot day or after work ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle- Pours a dark yellow color with a small head that fades to no real lacing. Aromais musty. Blend of yeast and hops with a bit of sweetness in the background. Has that old stale beer smell. Taste is not much better, sort of funky with yeast and malt sweetness. Coarse bitterness and a sticky finish. Light body, has a lot of rough edges and high carbonation. Not a decent drinker, but then you cant expect too much from a poor step sister of Victoria Bitter.
