On par with things like Budweiser, Miller etc, no taste. Designed so it goes down fast, so you buy more. Bland, boring and offensive.

why would you want to make a beer like tooheys new even dryer? thats essentially what this is.

CUB and tooheys beers have a dryness that to me is the equivalent of having shattered glass in there, and this is like someone smashed a whole window in it. so incredibly cloying and raspy in its mouthfeel, its like the bitterness is trying to scrape the already unaccpetable flavor from the lining of your throat. what annoys me too is t hey make it like this is a step up in quality. what a joke!

the ad here for this beer has a guys tongue leaving his mouth and going walkabout looking for a bottle of this. all i can say is if i woke to find my tongue could get its own beer, and it had brought me a tooheys dry, id be seriously thinking about gagging myself, introducing it to a razor blade or telling it.to piss off till it brought me a decent brew. unforgettable in its mediocrity.

Bought a 6 of this, comes in clear bottles with a green label, 5% listed as the import abv. Inspiring little nuggets of advice to be found under the caps such as:
-"Get a hot band to play at your favorite bar"
-"Go diving with sharks on the barrier reef"
-"Grab your boardies and your mates and go on a surfing safari"
And then the enigmatic "$25,000 in a day - How good is that!"
Charming. So I would take it that the ad campaigns for this in Australia would pander to the mindless troglodyte masses, akin to the Bud and Molsen commercials here in N. America.

Still, this stuff isn't quite as bad as I thought it would be. Pours out a clear light gold, a decent amount of head on it for a lager of questionable origins and unknown adjuncts. There's a light sweet bready malt to it before it gets overwhelmed by a flat blandness that tries its damndest to mask out the cooked veggie aroma of cheap ingredients. The flavour is quite dry, grains up front, and what I would assume resembles some sort of bitter herbally hops on the finish. After a while the aftertaste becomes oppressive and rank, like day-old boiled cabbage. Okay, I take it back, this stuff is as bad as I thought it would be. The mouthfeel is smooth enough for a lager that is intended to be chugged back. And chugged back ice cold from the bottle I would assume. The enigmatic $25,000 in a day becomes more clear when I read the back of the label through the bottle advertising Toohey's Big Day Out contest. Yeah, you're definitely going to need incentive like that to get people to buy this sort of stuff on a regular basis. If you see this stuff on the shelves as an import, pass it by. As for the Aussies, they already know how bad this stuff is.

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

A - Light yellow straw with a decent macro white head. Clear body, a few strands of lace.

S - Not much going on here, typical macro lager smell, like a pub in the morning.

T - Pretty flavourless with the most prominent characteristic being old coins.

M - Light, thin and fizzy.

O - Pass.

Not a good beer; nothing special. It is over carbonated and a lack of body, metallic - egg smell, and citrus aroma with a very very vague malt flavor,. The strong metallic twang seems to alter the mouthfeel. Pretty bad if I have to be honest.
I would not order or buy another.

whoa, new depths. somehow this brew reminds me in smell and taste of burnt fireworks. Cant exactly pin it down except to say that's what comes to mind. To go much further is pointless. Now here's where the requirements to write more are redundant. Nobody wants to read it, there's nothing more that adds to the story, hopefully this doesn't aggrandize the narrative.

When I came to write a review I read Kulrak of Townsville and he had already written what I was going to say.
It is a nice golden colour ,but what colour should an extra dry be ?
Label 3/10
It is bland but in offensive and has thirst qhenching qualities only

Drank from my Duvel Tulip

A - Pours a clear golden colour with a decent white head that hangs around.

S - A little metallic aroma, but nothing else.

T - Crisp and bitter witha little citrus malt and I mean a little. Pretty bad really.

M - Over carbonated and light to medium body.

D - I can see why this appeals to the average beer punter in OZ. It's overcarbonated and tastless. Perfect for the 18 year old with a V8 ute.

Pours golden amber with a large head that slowly fades.
Nose shows cooked vegetables with hints of banana and some grainy malt.
Very similar flavours with the addition of stale cereal-like malt. Not too offensive.
Body is quite watery, moderate carbonation.
