2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I poured this 25.4 ounce "oil can" of beer into my large weizen glass (32 oz.) and was greeted by a beautiful copper colored beer with a magnificent head that very slowly faded to a light, rocky foam. Thick veins of lace were left at the top of the glass, with moderate lacing appearing while drinking the beer. The aroma was very pleasant, with caramel malt and fruit notes, with a bit of hop spice. As I suck some of this ale through the foam, the taste mimics the aroma, with a clean, sweet caramel maltiness followed by a stronger bitterness. The finish is rather clean, with a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is a bit thin perhaps, but not at all watery.

I like it better than the traditional fosters. Its an ordinary bitter ale there is nothing special about it.

Pours a nice amber with a tall frothy white head. Mostly diminishes with nice lacing. Maybe a little better than standard Fosters but mainly from appearance. Good beer when all other choices are supermarket varieties. But still far from a true "special bitter".

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 Not the worst light beer I’ve tasted by any means. Highly inoffensive. I would drink this stuff agin if I was driving.
RERATED: Tried this again and they have done something to the brewing process. It is swill. Highly offensive garbage. I boguth a six-pack and couldn’t even finish the first bottle. I can’t even give them away. Down the sink they went.

Better than the lager, but still just an ordinary tasting ale. Nice copper color, some fruity characteristics. Smells cheap, and some adjunct taste does carry over into the flavor.

Beautiful appearance which was easily the best thing this beer had going for it...otherwise pretty average. Still, better than regular Fosters.

It's better than "Fosters Lager", but still wimpy for a bitter.

Medium amber color... skunky aroma. Bitter and a long finish. The best part of the taste is that long finish... something still is odd in the taste of the beer... a bit sour and strange.

Actually not all that bad of a beer, almost amber in color, very little head & carbonation, body was pretty well balanced but very light, a bit of a dry taste & aftertaste with minimal bitterness, but a drinkable beer
