2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
300ml bottle. Pretty standard mas market offering but I have tasted worse. A bit too smooth but quite tasty for the genre.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
When originally released this was a pleasant enough upgrade over the original fosters, adding more strength at 4.8% abv and more depth and body to the taste. However it has been diluted to 4.5% and then again to 4.3% since itís release and the beer now has a taste\palate far more in common with normal fosters than the original Fosters Gold. Seems bizarre to me they have brought it more inline with fosters as such undermining this supposed premium beer against its rivals.

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a nice white head. A sweet cereally aroma with sweetcorn. tastes similar. Boiled sweetcorn the dominant impression. A short bitter finish. Mass produced nonsense. Watery.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 donít 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.

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.

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