One of my more bogan friends conned me into trying this, otherwise I would have probably avoided it. Drank it straight out of the bottle, bogan style. Wasnt expecting anything good from something with the VB logo on it, but holy shit, the aroma of this is EXACTLY like Steinlager, very fresh, lots of greenery and citrus. Have we stumbled upon something decent? Took a sip, and the flavour was once again reminiscent of Steinlager but sadly quite a bit more watery, although on a stinking hot day that would be nice. I was starting to doubt that CUB were responsible for this beer at all, until I swallowed it. The palate was pure Carlton Draught, dry, moderately bitter and very rust esque, although not as strong as the aforementioned. This one is nothing remotely special, it may seem as if Ive rated it a bit highly but considering the abominations CUB bombard us with on a regular basis, this is like a shining nugget of gold. Far better then youd imagine.

355ml bottle. A very bland and boring beer. Just another beer to join the low carb fade.

The funky, unpleasant aroma that is common to many CUB beers hits as soon as the bottle is opened. Not pleasant. Slightly cloudy amber appearance, reasonably high carbonation. Tart, light flavour; not terrible - perhaps a bit watery.

Pale yellow color with white foamy head, dough aroma, slighly bitter hops taste, abrupt finish. Generic beer but not bad.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2011
375ml bottle, 4.6% a/v. Pours a slightly dark lager colour, with a mediocre white head. Aroma is very average lager fair, nothing worth noting at all. Taste is also very average however well balanced, and a good every day brew. Aftertaste is very normal and nothing worth commentig on. Overall.. pretty average.

Kinda lke Carlton Draft off the tap (think lifeless slightly stale malt character). Nose isnt too bad with a mild hoppy note. Notwithstanding the crap flavours there is an attractive crispness in the structure.
