  2. What Tooheys New is doing in this company is beyond me, unless Tooheys sponsored the event :)
  3. They're kidding, aren't they?
    Ptooeys New tastes like it's been strained through a goat.
  4. Seems a bit odd. Surely theres small premium breweries which can produce a better Lager than Tooheys New :?

    Im sure the judges know a good beer, and the tests would have been done in unmarked glasses. Definatly not to my taste though :) (and my tastes arent too picky, I will take VB over New any day)
