This pours a dark amber color with a slight beige head. There is a slightly bitter/yeasty aroma. The taste is malty with a slightly bitter finish. The body was pretty average but the overall taste was pretty good given the rating

Big ass can. Darker clear copper. Thick foamy heads. Not much malt. Not too much to this, other than a cheap corn taste. Not very good. Címon Australia, I expect more from you.

Oil can: Pours dark, coppery amber with a fluffy, thick tan head. Scent is caramel, bready. Taste is slightly bitter and metallic....malty...caramel and grain. A little weak, but superior in every way to regular Fosterís...Iíd have rated it higher except ícaramel colorí is listed in the ingredients.

This dark gold ale has a mild smokey flavor. For $2 from Safeway not a bad deal but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Copper Color, Huge Foamy Had, Nice Lacing. Grainy Aroma. Sweet Malts, Caramel, Light Hop Finish. A little More depth than regular Fosterís, easier to Drink and Enjoy, thirst quencher. Nothing Too good nor too bad. OK for what it is...I never had it in a green can, so I guess nothing too bad is going to happen if someone is going to try it for themselves, either....

The initial smell of grasses is decent, but there is a whiff of rotten eggs present. It is darker than expect in that itís a light amber color. The head is medium bodied. The combination of grasses is okay. Considering that it came out of a can, it okay.

Well, well, we meet again. The big green Foster...Smells like wallaby urine with a side of drop bear breath. MmmHmmm, this is bad. The more I drink this the more it reminds me of a sadder time in my life, wait....I think just realized something. Dammit.

Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Coppery color with a fairly thick white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is bread and sweet corn. Taste is a quick hit of mild bitterness that drops quickly leaving some astringency behind. Not much in the way of actual flavor, it does have a hint of fruitiness that follows the bitter. Light bodied almost to the point of watery. Better than Fosterís lager or most American macros for a similar price.

This is the type of gnarly gnarlington I usually save for tasting, but today I am keeping this beast all to myself. Comes in a can. Pours light amber with a fluffy off white head. Corny and sweet, with hints of cardboard, and day-old wet towel. Pretty brutal, honestly.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: Copper under a lightly off-white head which fades into nothing and swirls with a thin bubbly collar. No lace.
Nose: Caramel corn Ė more caramel than corn. Thin slightly stale bread crust in the back. Ghostly whisper of lemon skin.
Palate: Medium-light weight with a palate that hits quick and fast and dissipates just as quickly. Dries my tongue like paper and lingers with dried lemon peel and apple peel. Mineral water. Acrid metallic finish Ė like licking a new copper penny. Salty along the side.
Final Thoughts: Blech. Thankfully the gargantuan can this beer came in cost me only $1 so I didnít feel guilty dumping the rest of it down the drain.
