Ernest (6142) - 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.

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

BVery (5924) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 25.4 oz can. Clear orange-amber pour with a slightly spotty white head. Aroma and taste are light yeast, grain, and mild caramel. Far from good, but not offensive either.

DrSilverworm (5898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2013
25.4oz oil can. Shared with friends at Eli’s, enjoyed from a small styrofoam cup. Pretty good, one-finger khaki head. Light to medium body. Light, smoother carbonation. Not much flavor to this, but nothing too offensive about it. Lightly toasty, light caramel, light english-type hop. Light sweet taste. Pretty agreeable ale, I guess. Fine to share and washed my smoked turkey down with.

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!

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.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2007
This was god awful. Orangish color with a long lasting head. Aroma was of disgusting adjuncts, phenolic I guess. Flavor was sour and artificial disgusting flavor. Corn, corn, corn. Quite possibly one of the worst I have tasted. Maybe its just me, but I would rather drink Bud Light. In terms of price cost effectiveness to flavor to desired results ratio - Ha!

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Massive 75% head when poured from the ridiculous can. No aroma here. In the end, this isn’t much different than any other mass produced beer except it does have a little bittering. In a blind taste, I’d have guessed it was an average American ready-recipe amber ale.
