Can as shown. Pours a orange gold with thick frothy white head that last awhile. The aroma is wheat and corn malt. Similar flavor to the aroma with a skunky finish. A decent English pale ale from Fosters.

PorterPounder (6521) - 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.

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

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, 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.

onceblind (6059) - 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.

Pailhead (6015) - 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.

riversideAK (5827) - 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!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - 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.

Poured a straw color with a white head. Aroma of cardboard, pale malt, and grass. Flavor similar, not good but better than regular.
