On tap. Sparkly, but that feeling goes away too quickly. A bit rounder than many other pale lagers, but in general too much influenced by the characteristics of industrial beers.

300ml bottle. Pretty standard mas market offering but I have tasted worse. A bit too smooth but quite tasty for the genre.

Clear golden color with strong white foam. Aromas of are sweet of rum and sugar snaps with a little light spice of cinamon mixed with lager malt. Palate, medium/light body with thin texture and surprisangly flat! leaving light sweet, with developing dryness finish. Tastes flat and sweet with notes of spice and water (very watery) Overall, surprisable drinkable without off flavours or off aromas.

Okay . Drunk after some efes and this had more of the skunky aftertaste. Ok and better than some cheaper lagers.

emartell (339) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - SEP 11, 2012
Aroma casi nulo con ligeros toques florales. En cuanto a la apariencia, color amarillo pálido, corona de espuma ligera pero de larga retención, carbonatación alta. En cuanto a boca, las primeras notas identificadas son ligeramente amargas y refrescantes. Al paladar lo refrescante se hace notar. Al principio destacan ligeros sabores amargos, mismos que posteriomente dejan sabores dulces al paso por la garganta. El final es ligero y frutal. En general una cerveza refrescante y diferente, aun que para nada de las mejores Pale lager que existen.

660ml Bottle. Bought because it was on offer. Pours a medium white head over a light golden body. Aroma is lager malts and a slight citrus hint. Tastes like a standard mass produced lager with a sweet fizzy finish. Unremarkable mass produced standard lager. Nowt wrong with it but nothing to go crazy over either.

Thin, sweet, lightly carbonated. Nice colour. Smells like an empty sweetcorn tin. Very Very bland, but ok to drink Ice cold in a big 20-pack. Quaffable swill I think is the right expression, cheap too. Virtually no hop flavour at all, like corona, miller, sweet golden lagers in clear bottles, meant to be drunk from the bottle. Lager for people who don’t like lager, or for people like me who can drink a hell of a lot in one sitting and need a constant supply of faintly beery tasting liquid.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2015 This doesn?t have the same distinctive taste of the regular Foster?s, but I prefer it. A decent after work grab out the fridge beer but it won?t win any prizes. Perhaps a little sweet.

A decent standard lager. The aroma is faint hops and cooked vegetable with a dark yellow appearance. The taste is typical for the style - easy drinking and refreshing with a hint of caramel. The mouth feel is thicker than the standard Fosters but not as carbonated and the taste is also slightly improved. Overall nothing bad about this but certainly not exceptional.

Poor beer, it’s something you would drink at a party when all the good beer has gone. Great colour but lacks depth, favour and punch.
