1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

330ml bottle - it was a bottle, I was on a football bus, it was lager. What more do I need to offer. Rank.

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"

(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.....

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.
