Decent taste, a little flat. Looks good with an amber and is fairly smooth to drink.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Hints of basement aromas and bready malts, but faint.
Appearance: Dark gold, light caramel color with a rocky white head that dissipates quickly.
Taste: Medium sweetness throughout. Not cloying, but not balanced, either.
Palate: Thin body, watery texture, flat carbonation, minimal finish.
Overall: Meh...it’s drinkable, but not really worth it.

Pours a caramel color. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is bitter, some hops, not very flavorful. Overall a mediocre beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Originally reviewed: 7/25/09. Saw a can of this at the grocery store for a little over $2, so I thought, why not? Pours a crystal clear dark amber/orange with a huge billowy white head on top. Retention is alright, but there is little lacing. Smells like a cheap American lager. Some slight grains, sweet malts, and a slight mineral twang. Smells weak.
The mouth is thin and watery. Hints of caramel, but very subtle. Finishes bitter and drying. Not a whole lot in the flavor department. Pretty average beer that I will most likely never get again.

Big damn can. I was desperately looking for a new tick- here I go! Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. A sweet nose of grains and honey. A sweet fairly clean flavor, some light ripeness, caramel, light bitterness. Very smooth. Decent.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml can. Pours a clear copper color with generous white head. Sweetish aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet and just a little bitter. Creamy sweet finish. Better than regular Fosters.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A decent bitter. Good overall flavor. Texture is a bit thin, aroma is okay. A little bit whimpier than I like my bitters, but a good overall beer with consistent taste that is just a tad metallic

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice cheap beer for swilling back on those hot days like today. I don’t think anyone (other than your average Budweiser drinker) would ever accuse it of being special, but it’s nice on occasion and the oil can does have a certain appeal to it. Worth a go but probably bottom rung compared to what I susally drink.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It is St. Patrick’s day so I went for something green in the fridge. Not quite Irish, but neither am I. I was not expecting anything fantastic, having a relationship with Foster’s from way back. Never had this one though. It was nothing fantastic, but I had no problem drinking it and found some enjoyment with it. From a glass, but still had a touch of can taste. A bit fizzy on the lip, maybe due to a slow pour.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can from Ralph’s supermarket. Transparent amber pour. Two inch plus off white head. I don’t really know how to describe the aroma. Taste is a weird mix of bitter, sweet, and alcohol. Maybe a little cardboard in there. Thin body. Medium carbonation.
