I thought Foster’s was Australian. The "oil can" I consumed was brewed in and imported from Canuckistan. Sonofa....this is MOLSON. I knew I tasted a beaver. Effing Canuck piss beer masquerading as Australian piss beer. Goddammit, I want my money back, Canuck communist ratstards.

Huge can. Pours light yellow, with white head. Aroma and taste are uninteresting and watered down.

Pale yellow. Patchy white head. Sweet. Wet old cardboard. Corn. Not good. Mildy offensive. Almost as unpleasant as a malt liquor, but without the bonus alcohol. Overall its fine if you get the urge for some good ol’ swill. Chug it and get it over with quick.

Australia’s most famous lager provide a nice foam when pouring. It smells slightly malty and hoppy and also a delicate aroma of flower. Taste have an appropriate malty fullness and a good long hoppy taste. It leaves no bigger impression than any other good thirst quenching lager would do.

Plechovka 440 ml. Svetlozltá farba, hustá biela pena, slabá nasládlá aróma. Nízka rezkosť, sladkastá chuť, bez náznaku horkosti. Nabudúce jedine v prípade totálnej vyprahnutosti...

Aroma is bland adjunct, sulphur, and honey. Taste follows suit and is pretty bland. Appearance is a clear straw with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Draught 50 CL. Golden color with minimal head. Notes of malts, corn. Yet another pretty tasteless bulk lager. Can be drinken while cold.

ordybill (701) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Poured from the famous 25 OZ oil can into a pint glass. This beer is clear yellow with moderate carbonation. It has a slight lager corn flavor and is better had very cold. I know this is the Australian example of Moosehead Beer to Canadians (a not so popular brand exported to the States). An average AAL style beer.

Awful piss water that is so bad it has to be served nearly frozen to be able to drink it.

Lagerboy (1579) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
750 ml can, 5% ABV. Clear golden yellow, thin white foam. Muted grainy malty aroma. Sweet grainy lager malt taste, a bit buttery, some citrus. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Austrailian industrial swill brewed in the States. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
