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.

Sent in a picture to be uploaded...Can. Pours with a fluffy off-white head and a sparkling clear brown body. Aroma is grainy and lightly grassy. Taste is grainy and adjunct filled with a light bitterness, but no hop flavor. Quite Fizzy

DocLock (7826) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2005
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.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2008
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

shrubber85 (7527) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2004
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.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Stubby 24oz can from Big Save split with Matt (and the plughole) at the house in Kauaíi, 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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2007
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.

25.4 oz. can from Kellerís IGA. Like the flagship Fosterís, I love the big cans. But thatís where the positives end on this one. Pours amber with a massive frothy eggshell head. I canít describe the aroma any better than the previous rater: "skunked malts." Maybe also some corn and artificial sweetness in the mix, too. I hated the flavor on this and choked down every gulp; it reminded me of malt liquor more than an EPA. Skunky, with a nasty booziness, some grain, corn, and hops, and also a rainwater-like flavor to make things even nastier. Light body, active carbonation. Skunky finish. I actually prefer the Fosterís Lager.
