Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2003
Deep orange coppery colour like a true bitter, unfortunately the beer tastes disgusting. Off sickly taste, weird palate, tastes mouldy or somethimg. Funny, grainy, dirty aftertaste. Reminds me of average home brew. Special it aint.

Nice golden amber color. Thin cream colored head. There is a slight bitterness in the smell. A little malty. Nothing great. It has a bitterness to the flavor but nothing else. Its quite watery, but much better than normal Fosters which really does suck. This isn't half bad. Would probably be better on tap.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Bright copper color and thick soapy white head. Aroma of malt, cut grass, cardboard and metal. Weak flavor and watery palate. Bland and boring overall.

Nothing too special here at all really. It is a bit better than normal fosters because it has some flavour but it still isn't anything tasty. A little hint of hops and a slightly darker colour make it better than some but still not great.

Well, I don't know exactly what to say. This is superior to the regular Foster's Lager for sure. I taste a touch of malt and a little hops and this beer finishes dry and clean. This is not "special" in any way other than it is ten times better than the standard Foster's crap.

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.

Foster's - Australian for THIS CAN IS FRICKIN' HUGE! The beer itself isn't that bad, I guess.

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.
