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.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - NOV 20, 2002
Nose of flowers, caskwood, resin, caramel and just a hint of dried fruit. Pours a clear flat orange. The huge off-white fluffy head is mostly lasting with good lacing. The flavor though balanced is way to shallow for this style. The middle is flowery and soapy with a very average finish. The medium oily body is fizzy and finishes metallic. A poor representative of an excellent style.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Thin, thin thin thin; tasted of tin. the light bitterness was thin. the malts were thin. Palate - thin. The best thing about this was the big fizzy head and the gorgeous sheets of lace that totally covered the glass. Otherwise, THIN.

Smells like piss. Good head. Nice amber color. Not that bitter, but for a macro it is. OK, and better than reg, fosterís.

Aurelius (4561) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2002
I should have become worried when I saw the words íUnion Madeí on the label. The version that I had was from Canada. This was easily the worst bitter that Iíve ever had. Tasted like the lager with a bit more sugar thrown in. But it came in an oilcan which could easily be smuggled onto Amtrak. Clingy, thin palate. Buy the lager instead.

Nice light malt flavor, strawberry blond hue, very easy drinking. Doesnít resemble a lot of English Bitters. Very smooth!
