Pours a nice light gold colour with light fluffy head. But it smelled slightly light struck with no other smells whatsoever. The clear bottle probably had something to do with that. The flavour is pretty much the same, just light struck with no other flavour, but it is a dry beer. Mouthfeel wasn't so bad, light and creamy, but all in all it's not a real drinkable beer.

Really really BORING. So easy to drink because there is absolutely no flavour, shares a similarity to others from CUB, which isn't a good thing.

carlton must have this idea of seeing how many different labels they can throw on essentially the same beer and see if we will notice anything. another brew of pure evil from CUB that is merely going to show the overall ignorance of the australian beer market.

there is nothing to say about this beer that i havent said about all their others. it is almost impossible to discern between them. this one also tastes like bodily waste.

aaargh! they are beer nazis, trying to fill us all with putrid beer propaganda! along with tooheys, they have completely brainwashed %99 of aussies as to what a beer should actually be. oh man if only they knew. if there was a brewery in orwells classic novel '1984' it would have been CUB.

An ordinary darkish gold coloured beer Clear and had a sudsy head that quickly disappeared,
The only smell was a vague maltiness
The taste was deplorable,being a chemically malty sloshthat ends with some semblence of a balance between sweet and bitter.It tastes like crappy Euro Lager to me.
It is well carbonated but sour in the mouth.
This is a beer to avoid.CUB is the biggest brewer in this state , for which the Wine Industry must be eternally grateful

Pretty darn boring beer, looks ok and forms a decent head with some lacing, smell is non existent so I cant even mark it. Literaly the only smell is skunked hops. Taste isnt much better, thin mouthfeel. Tastes like dry water with some hops.

Easy as to drink and no flavour.
