I was kinda excited about this brew til I discovered the 2.8% ABV. Oh well. Beer pours up nice cooper color with big white fluffy head. Brew is a bit on the carbonated side. Aroma is mostly non-existant with a very light hop, floral scent. Flavor is OK. Initial flavor is lighly sweet and the finish is lightly bitter. Not the worst, but with the very low ABV, what's the point?

The other Oil Can is better than his brother. Some mild flavor and nicer looking beer. Drinkable.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2012 Amber body with pure white, quickly dissipating head. Rather shitty overall. Slight bitterness on middle on tongue on initial swallow. Slight metallic grassy hop finish. Watery body.

white head with a nice amber body. A nice malty aroma. Had a watered down hoppy taste with a sweet subtleness to it.

Ernest (7123) - 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
