2.15/5 rDev -0.5%
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.

Pale, high carbonation, soft drink like appearance.
Smells of faint off grain. Straw and little hops
Very dull and plain. No hop flavour to speak of asside from a dull and artificial bitterness. A straw like malt flavour which contributes little to the body of the beer.

Golden amber pour, thing head.
Lots of grainy malt on the aroma, no noticeable hops (they probably use isohops...). Shows a distinct "old dirty pub" smell.
Sweet grainy malt upon tasting, some caramel. Not much else to say really! Seriously weak bitterness.
Not as watery as you'd expect for a mainstream cheap lager, but the carbonation is over the top, as per usual!

This pours a golden colour. Clear. Not a lot of head to speak of and it disappeared quick. Looks dead.
I don't know how I can rate its aroma when it doesn't have one. Not even a bad one.
The lack of anything continues to the palate. A touch of malts perhaps.
Oh just so bland all round. Why do they bother? It is just an alcohol delivery device.

This is a really average beer. But not that bad. The color is a bit amber, smells , nothing really to say and the taste is average.
I not taking note while I drankthose beer but , theres nothing to say about it. Its just a ordinary beer in Australia.
