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

PorterPounder (5970) - 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.

Braudog (5966) - 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.

riversideAK (5738) - 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!

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2004
At first glance I thought, "Cool - Foster’s makes a bitter." At first smell and taste, I was grateful I bought only one 25.4 oz. green can of this stuff. It’s very mediocre, a slight step above the usual macro piss-waters. I’ll pass on future drinkings.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2001
bronze in colour, watery, hoppy finish, chlorine/chemical on the finish, truly crap beer, absolutely nothing to this beer, bland and boring.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Creamy head, persistant, lacing is there. Aroma is sweaty and lightly hoppy. Flavor is dusty and minty, interesting. I liked this one as a macro. No talking now, more rating!

Pailhead (5397) - 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.

Skyview (5283) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Purchased single 750 ml green oil can as Fosters Bitters at Cellars Wine & Spirits in Shorewood, MN. Pours a clear golden amber brew with a thin off-white head that slowly dissipates (when served above 40 degrees) and leaves behind thin ring. Aroma of golden grain malt with some corn character, a hint of grassy hops and some light fruit. Taste is light bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of corn, some cereal grain and grassy hops. Finish is semi-sweet with a mild bitter aftertaste that quickly disappears.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5249) - 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.
