bhensonb (11381) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Brewed and canned in Canada (25.4 oz). Light grassy, hoppy aroma. Clear amber color with a creamy off-white head. Starts with a malty flavor that is somewhat balanced towards the finish by hop. Better than any mass produced common American products.

Tmoney99 (10971) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Big can. Poured dark amber with an average frothy white head that lasted. Moderate malty resin aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor with a medium finish. Drinkable brew.

Ratman197 (10094) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Oil can poured a clear amber with a small l,asting ivory head. Aromas of carmel and fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel and light fruitiness with a crisp lightly sweet finish. Decent session beer. Iwas pleasently surprised.

BeerandBlues2 (9997) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Amber colored ale with a foamy white head. Hoppy and malty aromas. Sweetly bitter and buttery flavors. Clean and smooth palate. This ale is much better than Fosters Lager.

daknole (9416) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Big ass can. Apricot colored with a white head. A roma is very malty and a bit odd...chemical in a way. Flavor is pretty bland...some light malts and light hops. Damn am I glad I didnít have to drink the whole can.

hopscotch (9382) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Can... Clear golden ale with a small, fluffy, white head. Long lasting tight retention. Minerally, metallic nose. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Metallic bitterness hardly buffers intense corn and cereal grain sweetness. Sweet finish.

Drake (8766) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2008
750 mL "oil can." Fuck, these oil cans make the initial pour difficult. Um... well... the initial pour is clear amber with 3/4 of the glass being head. Decent head retention and nice lacing. Corny aroma with some sublte leafy hop notes. Taste is bitter hops, caramel and lots of corn. A very nice effort from Foster’s, but it still has that macro thing going on. It is better than Bud American Ale, so, it has that going for it.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2006
750 ml oil can. Pale amber beer with a thick, sticky off-white head. Aroma is fairly earthy and a bit dusty. A hint of peach and some caramel malts. Flavour is a bit grainy, but this is probably still the best of the Australian "bitters" that Iíve had.
