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.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2005 I had this again and looked at my original rating. It makes me laugh but it a sad way. Anyway, itís decent enough for what it is. Iím still giving bonus points for the megacan but not a five. Oh--by the way, I had it rated a 3.8.

Original: Iíve drank this quite a few times and I would have given this a 5 in appearance just because of the huge oil can it comes in. Tonight, I finally poured it in a glass and Iím still giving it a 5. Deep rich brownish amber color. Great head that leaves big chunks of lace on the side of the glass. Very mild flavor and aroma with just a hint of ale-fruityness.

People bag on Fosterís all the time, but I think the bitter is really good. I wish it came bottled, but I was pleased nonetheless. (The can is pretty cool, though.) Exactly how a bitter should taste. Fruity nose, medium body, enough malt presence to balance the hops, and of course, a hoppy finish. I liked this stuff, and Iíd buy it again. Oh. One more thing. 2.8% abv means you can drink a ton of these! Rock on!!!

Not much to say. The color was darker than I thought it would be. Pretty weak otherwise though.
