[1693-20080907] 25.4floz can. Alcoholic grainy yeast aroma. Clear, amber orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Toasted grainy yeast flavour is mildly bitter with lots of skunk. Medium body. Not particularly appetizing.

Big damn can. I was desperately looking for a new tick- here I go! Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. A sweet nose of grains and honey. A sweet fairly clean flavor, some light ripeness, caramel, light bitterness. Very smooth. Decent.

This is the type of gnarly gnarlington I usually save for tasting, but today I am keeping this beast all to myself. Comes in a can. Pours light amber with a fluffy off white head. Corny and sweet, with hints of cardboard, and day-old wet towel. Pretty brutal, honestly.

rather tame beer, can be lovely at times, but of lower quality...As said by one guy who reviewed this beer earlier, A very underrated beer that gets sold out quickly in the super markets, good taste and great price...U gotta love Australia mate!

CaptainCougar (7133) - 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.

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.

Well who knew Fosters had an ale?! Nooooot good! Just about as bad as the lager, with minimal differences.

Ernest (6906) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2003
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.
