1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

[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.

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.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

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.

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

"sampled a can a while back: not horrid. some crisp hop bite but still a lot of generic corn flavor. no skunk present, which is a plus. not a bad lawnmower beer, but not a likely revisit. Canít remember the price, but the big can was cheap."

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!
