wimpyjoe (2950) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Bottle. A slight improvement on normal Fosters, but mainly a drab effort. Golden with a medium sweetness and easy to drink.

tommann (2485) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2011
300ml bottle. Pours gold with a large head. Aroma is corn and a weird metallic lemon. Metallic twang is there too. Taste is quite like lemon shandy. Short finish. Nothing smart about this.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2012
300ml bottle. A clear, pale gold colour with a fine ring of loose white foam on the pour. An all-round grain, corn and sweet pale malt profile. Very little bitter presence finishing soft & sweet. Crisp, soft to medium carbonation, light in body & refreshing on the palate but relatively characterless.

SarkyNorthener (1414) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle. Yellow beer with medium fright head. Sweet malts and corn. Not good.

dynamiteninja (1389) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle. Pale gold body. White head. Lager malts, grassy hops. Smells more premium than regular Foster’s, but not as premium as say Becks or Cobra. Light bitter taste. Dry finish.

undercurrent25 (1331) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2011
Thin, watery, slight metallic taste, slightly unpleasant on the palate, I suppose this is meant to be drunk straight from the bottle, but I don’t see how this is a "premium beer"

Gary (1288) - (originally London),, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2012
(Bottled) This shit is ok "ice cold swill ".... sometimes I wanna drop the pretense ,note pad and goblet and slum it . Corona is my swill of choice but the fact that this isn’t as sweet as normal Fosters ,with a long bitter dryness , makes this ok ....like once a month only.....

swooper (1243) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2011
0,33l bottle not bad light hoppy aroma, why is caled gold if it is yellow pale...frothy, white foam, medium bitterness, light sweetness, a bit sharp bitterness, not very smooth, medium body, average carbonation, I dont know, strange flavour, nothing exiting

jamesie1857 (1225) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
330ml bottle - it was a bottle, I was on a football bus, it was lager. What more do I need to offer. Rank.

kwik-lime (1157) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2013
Corny but relatively clean tasting lager with a sweet finish. Just about bearable if hardly worthy of its premium marketing tag.
