No, no, no, no, no! Carlton draugh is the worst beer on planet. Dark yellow coulor, wih rotten eggs smell. Taste like aluminum even on tap and glass bottle. Hangover after drinking just a pint, worst hangover of my life. I definetly will not buy anymore in my life. again

Appearance: Poured a pale amber with a very weak head that disappeared almost immediately. Lacing down the glass was almost non-existent.

Aroma: Not a lot going on here. Smells like very faint 'beer', and no more specific than that.

Taste: Some pale malt and a bit of bitterness. A bit of grains in the background, but nothing that stand out.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, low body, again... nothing that stands out.

Drinkability: Sure, you can drink it, but with many other options out there that are infinitely better, why bother?

A: Served a golden color with a small head that fades quickly to bits of lacing.

S: Aroma of sweet malt and coarse grain. Has a stale beer scent.

T: taste on malt sweetness with just a wee bit of citrus. Faint bitterness and a fairly clean finish.

F: Light body and fairly smooth. Not a lot to work with here.

O: Basic lager in an ocean of beer. Nothing to see here, move along.

On tap at local RSL.

Oh dear, the Carlton Draught vs VB taste-off.

It looks like beer and has a head and lace, but I can safely say I have never been assaulted by such an immediate hit of metal. Serious Metal on the tongue.

This beer has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

Why do so many people drink it?

On tap at Northcote Social Club. From notes.

A - Poured golden straw and bright. Medium carbonation, half finger of white soapy head and good lace with a film of retention.

S - Virtually nothing. Some corny grain.

T - Corny, grain, nasty flavours, We grain maybe. Vegetal, creamed corn. Not good.

M - Medium carbonation, light and watery body, lingering flavours of unpleasantness.

O/D - Beers with no flavour are far superior to this. No idea why people keep this guys in business by buying this in mass quantities. Brutal.
