1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2010 Cloudy copper color with huge rocky egg-shell head. Light aroma and flavor, very grainy sweet with an astringent finish. Not so good.

Definetely better than orginal Foster's, but still not much to speak of. Seems a bit stale and watery. Not bad though.

Had this one in the 25 ounce can. Tasty at first, deep amber color, thick head. I was sick of it by the end of the can. Not a complete waste of money.

Dark amber with a taller white head. Light malt and mild floral aroma. Light in flavor and only slightly better than the regular Fosters.

The only thing it has going for it is the full bodied taste. I normally enjoy beers with a low alcohol content and full flavour, but this is one beer that failed the test.

Much better than its sister Lager. Nice Amber coloring, a little skunky and mildly hoppy. I liked the flavor. A decent Bitter from a can.
