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

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 Oil can: Clear orange color with a frothy white head, earthy grain aroma with some flowers, starts sweet and ends a little bitter. Watery texture, mild carbonation with a clean ending.

I was planning on getting Foster's because i haven't had anything from Australia yet, so i was like "ok, if i'm going to have a potentially crappy beer, i'm going to have the 'special' beer." i poured some into my glass and took a deep breath...and was rewarded with it's pungent aroma. yukko. i looked at it in the light and it actually looks nice with a deep coppery color. i winced as i started to drink it, but it wasn't that bad. somewhat fizzy with some light malty characteristics. you can definately taste the water in it. much better than i had thought it would be.
