PorterPounder (7333) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2008 Rerate Too much foam; funky stale fruit aroma; worn out bitter taste - similar to sucking on copper pennies. Original 2.9 Better than regular Foster’s - which is not saying a whole lot. Nice fluffy head with good lacing - a bit of a wet towel aroma to it. I like the copper color to it. Good balance of hops and malts. Overall not bad - does not stand up to British bitters of course - but a good solid effort by a macro brewer down under.

Ernest (7322) - 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.

onceblind (7322) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Transparent pale copper. Thin fading white head. Slightly metallic biscuity aroma with a touch of pale grains and toffee. Flavor was bland and the same; some metallic biscuit, and a touch of earthy pale grains and a whiff of toffee.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 1, 2003
Gee . What should I say . I had no pleasure of drinking that BIG can at all . Anoying to stomach and my tatse buds . Very simple , very no no .

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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6729) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2010
Sampled from a 750 ml can this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a huge soapy beige head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was sour and tangy with light notes of lemon and pear. The flavor was tangy with hints of caramel, and lemon. The finish was short, tangy and bitter. Medium body. Exceeded my expectations.

Big can, orange color, sweet corn nose with a tinny sour bite, dry bitter finish

Pailhead (6405) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Can: Aroma is lightly sweet and a little sour. Pours a transparent amber with a big white head with good retention. Lightly sweet with a big metallic finish and some hops. Moderate metallic aftertaste is really offensive.

Braudog (6342) - Yorktown, 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.

Beerman6686 (6329) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Poured a straw color with a white head. Aroma of cardboard, pale malt, and grass. Flavor similar, not good but better than regular.
