Used to be a fantastic beer. On tap is still okish but in bottle the chemical/metallic after taste ruins it. Never buying again.

Somewhat refreshing and mildly attractive, but the strong chemical taste, feel and smell ruin this lager.

I love Carlton Draught, it is one of the best beers in the world. The look, smell, taste and feel are comparable with any beer in the world. I could, and do, drink this beer all day.
Why is Carlton Draught called an American Adjunct Lager?
If there is such a thing as heaven and if I do make it there one day I imagine breasting the bar having a Carlton Draught with God while watching the Carlton Football Club win a Premiership.

By far one of the best original Draught styles available. Full bodied and full flavoured this draught beer offers mild bitterness and value for your money.

Format: standard light brown 375mL bottle with a macro label.

Appearance: a dark golden-amber colour with a fluffy white head that drops away quickly. Pretty disappointing.

Aroma: not very much on the nose, just some corn adjuncts and cheap grain. Okay at best.

Taste: not very much again. The cheap grains are joined by a vegetal note. Not particularly offensive, but quite boring.

Aftertaste: the flavours drop away quite quickly. A pretty basic adjunct lager.

Mouth feel: light in body with a medium to higher carbonation. Reasonable.

Overall: I'm really not sold on Carlton Draught. Even their very funny ads aren't enough to make me realise that their other beer VB is cheaper and much better. Carlton Draught is not worth the AU$46 a case.
