Too similar to Victoria Bitter, although perhaps slightly more drinkable (not a big statement).

I find this a refreshing beer with a taste of the malts and little hops. But it works for ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not as good as Victoria Bitter but have been sinking a few of these lately. Longnecks. Best served very cold. Not overly popular or marketed.

If you like punching a durry, punching your Mrs OR both, then THIS is the beer for you. Best served ice cold in a glass stubbie/long neck which can conveniently be used as a semi deadly weapon at the drop of a hat. Bitter by name, bitter by taste, bitter disappointment.

KeefOz (1697) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle/stubbie. Poured a crystal clear golden amber colour with a one-finger bright white foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation high with coarse bubbles giving a coarse mouthfeel. Aroma subtly of malt, hint of grain and metal; no obvious hops. Taste is slightly sweet with a hint of metal, no real bitterness but has an acrid tartness. Light, thin and watery. Crisp, smooth and clean if cold and with a slightly acrid tartness on the finish.

375 ml Dose. Goldgelbes Bier, kaum Schaum. Getreidiger ssser Duft. Wenig herber Geschmack. Malz, kaum Hopfen. Das ist kein Bitter!

stevoj (4440) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 7, 2015
Pours out clear golden with high fluffy head. Musty cardboard aroma, tastes like white school paste. At least a hint of bitterness at the finish, but a tough drink to get down.

TedE (1143) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2015
750ml bottle into glass. Has that chemical vegetable smell most CUB beers have. Reminds me a little of chlorine. Yellow/amber with thin white head. Highly carbonated. Taste is sweet then WHAM! full on tinny vegetable aftertaste. Ive always wondered what the difference between this and VB was, now I know. This is slightly less gag-inducing.
