crazyvin (1939) - New York, USA - JUN 6, 2003
white head with a nice amber body. A nice malty aroma. Had a watered down hoppy taste with a sweet subtleness to it.

Ernest (6218) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2006 Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of DMS and plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Nearly undrinkable...horribly unclean aftertaste. Worse than I remember.

I guess you could call it "special", 'cause it does come in an oil can. Other than that, Fosters has managed to bring big beer production to a style that is better off wihtout the attention. This is a passable, average beer. Their attempt at a tasty bitter falls well short of the mark.

Norton (329) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2003
Love the big fat can! Makes me feel like Mini-Me holding a regular beer! Semi-orangy color, surprisingly decent head forms, but not creamy. Nice bite, but very drinkable. I have not been unknown to throw down a few of these at parties just to try to look cool.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - MAY 1, 2003
Another big disappointment from Fosters. Had it in the oil can, 25 oz. size. It's a nasty as it's big, blue cousin. Pours out thin and watery, horse-piss yellow, with no head to speak of. Had the aroma of old gym socks steeped in peppermint tea. Cheesy tasting hops leave your mouth feeling fuzzy and tasting nasty. I'd stay away from this one too, gang. Save your money. Bitter in a can? An outrage, if you ask me.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2003
The only good thing about this beer is it comes in a really big can and probably won't kill you(right away).Bad corny old swillwaukee flavor. Yuk!

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2003
Peachy orange with a foamy head and moderate carbonation. Some tangy hops in the aroma as well as some flat malting. The flavor was dank, musty, and rather skunky with flat malting, but possibly deserves better than I have rated it. More flavorful than 85% of macros.

PhillyBeer2112 (2525) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2010 Cloudy copper color with huge rocky egg-shell head. Light aroma and flavor, very grainy sweet with an astringent finish. Not so good.

Definetely better than orginal Foster's, but still not much to speak of. Seems a bit stale and watery. Not bad though.

gws57 (1274) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2003
Had this one in the 25 ounce can. Tasty at first, deep amber color, thick head. I was sick of it by the end of the can. Not a complete waste of money.
