’Foster’s: Australian for Croc-piss.’ This standard lager tastes like you are eating the can along with it. It has an unusually bitter aftertaste and leaves a disturbing feeling in your stomach after a few. Not worth the hype.

unimpressive, basically an american macro, at an import price, definetely not worth the money.

For an aussie beer, I’ll take XXXX because it doesn’t ahve that metallic bite that fosters has (out of the tap or not).

Got the bottle instead of the oilcan and am glad I did. Those oilcans always get warm before I’m done with ’em! This is a very ordinary American Standard, but with a weird Aussie taste-twist that I can’t pin down. Not all that great.

This was a basic american style lager. Not much taste, not much color, not much body, not very good.

Australian for piss. In all fairness, I had it in Canada and I don’t think it’s the same as the Australian version but what I had was no better than your run of the mill Bud. I was looking forward to trying it. Maybe I was expecting too much.

Nice beer for the beach, and prepping your self for the giant dipper.
Can is always fun.

Not bad on draft.Tastes like an American Standard with a skunky aroma and bitter aftertaste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Is the alcoholic content different in the UK version? (Perhaps I recall incorrectly, but I thought the can said 4.0%.) The best that can be said of this is that it holds its carbonation a long time, so even a long while later it had a nice palate. Bitter finish. Aroma of wood chips. Gets better after a few sips but otherwise not very nice--typical of the style--perhaps this is better than many other examples in the style, however.

Not bad but nothing I’d drink alone. Regular, American kinda flavor. Smelly skunk flavor. Bitter? Okay...But I like em a bit more bitter than this. Good beer if you’re dreaming about Elle Macpherson and those luscious...Ahh...Not a bad beer overall. Good head!
