I'll admit I like picking this up time to time. $2.15 for a big oil can, only reason I get it. Very little aroma or taste, can says "Ale with Carmel color added". T think that says it all. It is not a good beer but I like the novelty of it so I get one occasionally. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Aroma: Wet cardboard, lightly grassy, salvage store bread. Appearance: Actually looks nice enough; nearly transparent copper body with a thick tan head. Flavor: Pretty sweet and watery; some light caramel or maybe bread; finishes with a slightly grassy tang. Brings the apple juice as it warms. Palate: Light body, thick texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: Now I know what a bad English Pale Ale mixed with a Malt Liquor tastes like. Not utterly deplorable.

Doesnít rock my world but has a nice sweet aftertaste. Itís much better than the reviewers give it credit for.

Not bad for a mass produced beer. Taste is mostly of cheap grain, a decent amount bitterness a little too sour. Grain aftertaste and lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

This pours a dark amber color with a slight beige head. There is a slightly bitter/yeasty aroma. The taste is malty with a slightly bitter finish. The body was pretty average but the overall taste was pretty good given the rating

Big ass can. Darker clear copper. Thick foamy heads. Not much malt. Not too much to this, other than a cheap corn taste. Not very good. Címon Australia, I expect more from you.

Oil can: Pours dark, coppery amber with a fluffy, thick tan head. Scent is caramel, bready. Taste is slightly bitter and metallic....malty...caramel and grain. A little weak, but superior in every way to regular Fosterís...Iíd have rated it higher except ícaramel colorí is listed in the ingredients.

This dark gold ale has a mild smokey flavor. For $2 from Safeway not a bad deal but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Copper Color, Huge Foamy Had, Nice Lacing. Grainy Aroma. Sweet Malts, Caramel, Light Hop Finish. A little More depth than regular Fosterís, easier to Drink and Enjoy, thirst quencher. Nothing Too good nor too bad. OK for what it is...I never had it in a green can, so I guess nothing too bad is going to happen if someone is going to try it for themselves, either....
