I remember liking this beer. Only had it once, and drank so much of it (and became so hungover after) that I can't bear to try it again.

A little more kick than regular Fosters. It has the bite of an ESB but beyond that not much else.

Iím not a huge fan of dark beers, but I like fosterís, so I gave this one a try. It wasnt too bad, and wasnt great either... I drank it with a meal though (steak as I recall) and found it to be pretty complimentary, so maybe if you just want something malty to sip on, this is a good choice, but again, I cant see attempting to get hammered on this.

I used to drink these in grad school because i thought they were
better than the lager. I got a big surprise on this one. The appearance
is actually nice when not viewed through the opening in the top of
a can wrapped in a paper bag. Nice lacey head. Had a nice floral
hop aroma, and tastes really good. Nice citrous and pine flavors intermingled
with a lovely malted flavor. I doubt seriously that the one I consumed
had only 2.8 ABV--maybe thatís what it is in Utah or something. I was
really surprised with how good this beer was. I may even keep the next one i buy
wrapped in the paper bag just for old timeís sake.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2008 Rerate Too much foam; funky stale fruit aroma; worn out bitter taste - similar to sucking on copper pennies. Original 2.9 Better than regular Fosterís - which is not saying a whole lot. Nice fluffy head with good lacing - a bit of a wet towel aroma to it. I like the copper color to it. Good balance of hops and malts. Overall not bad - does not stand up to British bitters of course - but a good solid effort by a macro brewer down under.

Not a beer that stands out in my mind, but a drinkable brew on a hot day.
