Different to our lovely Fosterís in a can, this premium lager has been brewed to 4.8% and chill filtered to deliver a clean, crisp taste for maximum refreshment.

A plain regular basic lager with not much to say than it is a good refreshment in summer.

(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 isnít as sweet as normal Fosters ,with a long bitter dryness , makes this ok ....like once a month only.....

Thin, watery, slight metallic taste, slightly unpleasant on the palate, I suppose this is meant to be drunk straight from the bottle, but I donít see how this is a "premium beer"

dynamiteninja (1694) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle. Pale gold body. White head. Lager malts, grassy hops. Smells more premium than regular Fosterís, but not as premium as say Becks or Cobra. Light bitter taste. Dry finish.

Corny but relatively clean tasting lager with a sweet finish. Just about bearable if hardly worthy of its premium marketing tag.

Clear, light golden straw colour with a two-finger sized, bubbly white head that quickly halves in size and finally settles as a thin, soapy lacing.
Almost no noticeable aroma from this one other than a slight hint of corn and a background skunky bitterness.
There is a little corn that matches the nose and what initially comes across as citrus quickly turns out to be a skunky, bitter finish. Iím not too impressed with this one, although to be fair I wasnít expecting much.
Thin & light bodied but not quite watery, there is a slight tang to the beer as well with a dry finish.

This one is a pretty basic, mass-produced pale lager that I would rate as about average for the style. It doesnít have much of a smell or taste really although itís not quite as bland as some others I have tried & it is drinkable if not enjoyable. Skunky at the end though.

swooper (1247) - 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

Bottled version. Pale gold with a thickish big bubbled white head. Stale aroma, someone mentioned cardboard, itís there! Medium bodied with a hint of malt and some citrus hops in there somewhere. Had worse, thats about the best I can say, maybe with a BBQ on a hot day.....dont think Iíll buy again.

Awful piss water that is so bad it has to be served nearly frozen to be able to drink it.
