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

Nice cheap beer for swilling back on those hot days like today. I donít think anyone (other than your average Budweiser drinker) would ever accuse it of being special, but itís 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.

It is St. Patrickís 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 Fosterís 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 Ralphís supermarket. Transparent amber pour. Two inch plus off white head. I donít 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.

A cheap ale that is rather chemical tasting. Yes it has bitterness, but thatís about it. The oil can is kinda cool, though. The regular Fosterís is a little (but not much) better.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(King Can 25.4 oz.) Reddish amber color. Faint malt aroma. Soapy head that fades quick. A quick bitter start but then on to a clean finish before you know it. Can feel a mild sour taste with a hint malty sweetness. Every characteristic seems to be on the thin side without much standing out. Drinkable but not very exciting.

Picked up this puppy at one of the "Beers of the World" in Rochester New York. King can truly for a king. Pours a bubbly amber/ straw colour with a massive fluffy white head and lacing. Smells much like regular Fosterís, grains, even a little corn like. Tastes bitter and mucho grainy. Does the job.

This is nice and crisp, not too weak tasting and has good carbonation. Thick malts with a nice dry hop finish. This comes in a BIG can which is hard to hold unless you have big hands, so better pour it is a glass.

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my favorite beers. The aroma isnít much upon opening, contrary to how it describes itself..but itís a bit different if you are expecting an American style lager. But it is a good combination of taste and how well it umm, hits me. For itís strength, it has some sessionability, which is lacking in other beers of this type.

From the Oil Can, US production. It doesnít offer much aroma wise - only a hint of malt and some metallic notes. Dark copper color, though this is achieved by additive. Tastes like a malty lager or a low end bitter depending on your perspective. Light bodied, good deck beer. I canít objectively rate this highly, but most people will know what it is when they buy it, myself included.
