I liked Regular Fosterís ,but this one is smoother,and Tastes Even BETTER than the lager! the English Bitter is a good way to go!

Not impressed, this has a pretty strong metallic taste, the pint can is overkill, i didnít even finish it...
flavour is sickeningly sweet and just doesnt do it for me. CUB would be better served importing VB or Melbourne Bitter, both of them are far superior to this!!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours pretty well, with a quickly dissipating head. The color is a rich caramel. The beer has a faint bitter bite, but not it as not as full as I hoped. All in all, its not a bad gas station purchase.

So, for $2.39 for a 25 oz can, and a pretty can at that, itís hard to fault this ale. Yes, it could be much better, but it could be a lot worse. It doesnít have glaring faults, it IS an ale, a somewhat pale ale. I prefer it to many of the way-too extreme American ales. Which are 2-4 times the cost.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Oil can: Pours dark, coppery amber with a fluffy, thick tan head. Scent is caramel, bready. Taste is slightly bitter and metallic....malty...caramel and grain. A little weak, but superior in every way to regular Fosterís...Iíd have rated it higher except ícaramel colorí is listed in the ingredients.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I wasnít expecting much, and got what I expected. Aussies like their beer light, like Americans, and this fits the bill. Amber in color, with a nice white head and lots of lacing. Taste is extremely light, with just a hint of malt and a hint more of hoppiness. It goes down smooth and has a dry finish. A good swilling beer. After looking and tasting from a glass, I finished it off from the oil can.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beautiful burnt orange color. All I really tasted on this was bitterness, no hops or anything, just bitterness. Sort of middle of the road.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Has the recipe been changed or something? The stubby I bought clearly says 2.5% not 4.5%. Otherwise the description fits it - definitely copper coloured and hey! how did they get such a metallic taste into a glass container? The head is virtually non-existent. Didnít detect much smell. If it wasnít for the horrible metallic taste it would be almost drinkable. This is the cheapest beer Iíve ever bought - $A1.25 for a single 375 ml stubby, which would be cheaper still if you bought a slab of it - but the question is: Why would you?

Very good for a big can. Aroma is slight, appearance is nice and dark, flavor is lacking in taste but is refreshing on the palate. Very grainy like bread. Overall pretty good but not bitter, thats wierd?!
