Can as shown. Pours a orange gold with thick frothy white head that last awhile. The aroma is wheat and corn malt. Similar flavor to the aroma with a skunky finish. A decent English pale ale from Fosters.

Brouwerij (914) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Big can. Pours a golden straw color with a finger of rocky white head. The beer is darker than I expected. Head settles quickly with minimal lacing. Smells mild, bitter, bread, grain, mild malt. Flavor is bitter malt up front, fades into mildly bitter, wheat/grain, and malt aftertaste. Mild throughout. Moderate carbonation, light body, watery texture. Wasnít expecting much, but it seems a tad better than standard Fosters. At the very least it has more flavor. Not a good beer, but not a bad deal.

Golden with a white head that faded fast, leaving little lace. Aroma isnít anything like what Iíd hope to find in an ESB, or any other beer for that matter. Funky and carpet like, with some alcohol and slightly moldy deer-corn. Taste is close to a drainpour, even for a canned after work at your construction job type of beer. Just bitter funky corn, stale grains, some metallic flavors. Body isnít that great either. Kinda like fosters lager, but without the flavor or willingness to finish the whole can. Iíll pass on having this one again.

Can: Slight malty presence, far from an EPA. Drinkable. Food Pairing: Enchiladas bien picantes!

Aroma has some hop and a kind of "twang". Appearance is acceptable (but what does caramel color added mean?). It is overcarbed, thin and dry. The hop bitterness is passable. It is a doable beer for the pricepoint, but "premium" might be a stretch.

bigrond (1459) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2012
This semi sweet light beer is smooth. Hard to believe this is an English pale ale. Tastes more like a simple pale lager to me. Some one else reviewed this beer as tasting like ícold urineí. Iím wondering why he/she knows what that tastes like?? Anywho, this beer lived up to my expectations, which were small.

Poured into English pint. Looks like apple juice with thick foamy head. Smells sweet like apples. Has a funky taste of hay.

Itís kinda hard to rate this one because for a pale ale itís pretty lacking in body and way over-carbonated. With that said, I think it tastes like a pretty interesting Euro-lager rather than an insipid pale ale. The nose does have a bit of biscuit and apple that reminds me of an English pale ale, but other than that its pretty clean and malty with a nice dose of bittering hops. From a glass (as a pale ale) it gets a 2/5 maybe, but drinking it cold from a can is pretty good so I split the difference with the rating.

Iím surprised at the style. This seemed so much like a cheap lager that it tasted like cooled urine. Not a fan.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 25.4 oz can. Clear orange-amber pour with a slightly spotty white head. Aroma and taste are light yeast, grain, and mild caramel. Far from good, but not offensive either.
