2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thanks to my project manager for finding this in Alex, NC. Pours a deep shade of gold with huge, creamy head. Aroma of hopcit, honey, some florals. Tastes bready malty, with solid honey and hopcit elements at mid palate and an increasing sweetness as it finishes. Not bitter, but not bad.

2008-09-07. Dark amber body with a good sized foamy beige head and lace after a vigorous pour. (3+) Flavour is mild, light caramel malt and bitterness. Mild aroma, malt and cereals, muted hops. Average to light palate. Meh. Giant can from Downtown Wine & Spirits, Anchorage

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a transparent bright copper with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramel with some earthy piny English hops. Body starts with a mildly sweet grainy pale and crystal maltiness along with some bitter, earthy hops toward a crisp, but blander finish. A decent EPA, and surprising it came from Fosters.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

This was definitely better than I was expecting, although it was not very special or bitter. Brownish orange with a very thick foamy head that dissipated quicker than I expected. Light hops aroma. Flavor was really not bitter in any way, it was rather mellow with a malt presence. A little tinny and thin which I WAS expecting. Dry, lightly fruity finish. Overall I think if they tweaked this one a little it would be worth another try but as it stands it is kind of mundane.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2006 Oil-can. Nice barley malt aroma. Amber color with big head. LIght malt and moderate hops flavor. Smells great but a let down with the flavor.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2006 Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of DMS and plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Nearly undrinkable...horribly unclean aftertaste. Worse than I remember.
