Nothing too special here at all really. It is a bit better than normal fosters because it has some flavour but it still isn't anything tasty. A little hint of hops and a slightly darker colour make it better than some but still not great.

Deep orange coppery colour like a true bitter, unfortunately the beer tastes disgusting. Off sickly taste, weird palate, tastes mouldy or somethimg. Funny, grainy, dirty aftertaste. Reminds me of average home brew. Special it aint.

I knew that RB would destroy this one. Was pleased with this fine pale ale. If all sporting events, bars and grills would serve this kind of beer instead of the swill. It was priced right too. Good intro beer for your BMC people in your circle.

A little too malty, not really bitter. Very sweet as I was expecting something a little hoppy with a bite. Not bad for a mass produced lager. Much better than some of the watered down american lagers.

Not sure why itís called "Bitter". Poured great from the oil can - a dark amber with good head and lacing. Little aroma and less flavor than regular Fosterís Lager. Little, if any, malt flavor - all hops, but not "bitter" as the name suggests.

Not bad, but not great either. Nice amout of hops, but somewhat skunky aroma. Somewhat thin mouthfeel. decent copper color.

A nice change from Fosterís Lager, but nothing spectacular. Again, the size of the can and the price make this a good find in a pinch.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
25.4oz can. Clear medium amber with a nice full head. Looks good in the glass. Malty and a bit sweet. subtle but decent hops. Some years ago, this was one of my crossover beer.
