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!

Cornfield (5437) - 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.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
[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.

PorterPounder (5340) - 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.

Skyview (5150) - 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.

b3shine (5134) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Oil can to pint (from notes). Looks fine; a transparent dark gold with white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and Tastes like regular Fosters, only a little richer and maltier (which is a good thing). Average on the palate. A major improvement from regular Fosters, and good for what it is.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 18, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2006 I was surprised. Went into this biased against anything from Fosters. Pours a dark red. This has a slightly malty and metallic nose. The aroma has some caramel and dirty sweat socks. The flavor is decent with a touch of orange from the hops and some malty sweetness. There is also a little bit of a cardboard metallic taste. Finishes with a sour, lemon note. Not bad for a cheap oil can beer.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2003
Dark amber with a taller white head. Light malt and mild floral aroma. Light in flavor and only slightly better than the regular Fosters.

BrewDad (4772) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2005
This was a nice stiting around drinking beer but not the best I ever had by far. It just did not have a strong bitter flavor that I would have expected. The huge tin can must have it in the metal. It was nice but there was missing flavors and some off aromas.
