Evangelion2014 (13) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Smell is faint aroma of hops and typical ’macro smell’. Color is a deep orangish gold with a semi permanant soapy head and moderate bubbles from carbonation. Taste is of some faint cooked veggies, some pale malts and a finish of a twang of metal and a reasonable ammount of hop bite. Much better than I was expecting it to be and better than the regular fosters with a much heftier body. It’s not going to be rated best pale ale any time soon, but the extreme hate for this reeks of snobbishness, for what it is and the price point it’s a decent choice.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Stubby 24oz can from Big Save split with Matt (and the plughole) at the house in Kaua’i, 27/08/12.. Copper with a slim but lacing off-white cap. Aroma of crusty, sundried, sea-soaked swimming shorts...something unspeakably nasty, cooked mussel meat and candlewax. Rusty, sweet breakfast cereal, slimy, shredded wheat flavour. Tesco bitter? Truly horrendous.

Oil can to pint (from notes). Looks fine; a transparent dark gold with white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and Tastes like regular Fosters, only a little richer and maltier (which is a good thing). Average on the palate. A major improvement from regular Fosters, and good for what it is.

Really not that bad, better than regular Fosters. Nice hint of caramel on the backside.

stevoj (1972) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Pours a dark gold with short lasting foamy head. Decent malty flavor, a little richer than their normal lager. Slight lingering aftertaste stays on the tongue. Very pleased with this brew.

Minderbinder (1671) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2012
Can 25.4 oz. Pours clear brown with high creamy white head. Aroma is of grain, malt. Taste is of grain, malt, caramel. Overall: Not very good. Ligth body. Caramel colorant is listed into ingredients. Jeez.

luttonm (2138) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUL 31, 2012
The big can, from a Queens bodega. Darker yellow pour, metallic grain and some hops. hugely macro but it is at least an ale with some character. Grassy bittering finish, metallic funk. eh

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 28, 2012
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 Foster’s...

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Transparent pale copper. Thin fading white head. Slightly metallic biscuity aroma with a touch of pale grains and toffee. Flavor was bland and the same; some metallic biscuit, and a touch of earthy pale grains and a whiff of toffee.

25.4 oz "oil can". Pours a really nice copper color along the lines of a microbrewed pale ale. I was going to rate this higher in appearance until I saw the words "caramel color added" on the side of the can. Kinda like cheating IMHO. I’m not getting much of an aroma at all on this brew, but there is some rather lively carbonation. First sip brings a sharp metallic bitterness, almost Saaz hops like, with a mild malty backbone, and a strong bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is decent, not heavy or watery. Overall, for a mass produced beer, this is well...decent. Not up to the standards of SNPA or Dale’s Pale Ale, but I could see myself being quite content being at a cookout & washing down some grilled food with these.
