From 660ml bottle. A pleasant surprise! Caramel flavour which gives way to a refreshing, smooth lager. If you’re looking for a an easy drinking lager with more taste than your average lagers, this could be the one for you.

The_Osprey (3031) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2015
After a long search, I’ve finally harpooned this whale. 300ml clear bottle, 4.8%, BB June 2015. Pale orange, clear, sparkling, small foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is light, corny, some pencil shavings. Body is light, foamy, tingly carbonation. Taste is very light - so light that I can taste the booze. A little dusty. Dry and refreshing finish. Watery and plain, but no bad flavours at all. A fine pale lager, better than expected. Can see why people would like it.

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.

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.

660ml bottle from Tesco. Pours clear gold, thick white head. Aromas of cooked vegetables and metal. Taste is sweet, mineral notes. Thin, pissy finish.

Bottles usually seem really flat with little bubbles, on the other hand it’s easy on the stomach and not too fizzy

Bottle. A slight improvement on normal Fosters, but mainly a drab effort. Golden with a medium sweetness and easy to drink.

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

dreadful awful dreck. This manages the feat of being even worse than the 4.0% Fosters we are subjected to here in the UK.
