Orangish color, very flat. Smells a bit odd then it hits you. Argh - burnt smouldering rubber inner tube taste with a strong dose of rotting cabbage in an old pair of wet sneakers. After about 4-5 sips no taste at all. None. Total numbness of the mouth and gums. Perhaps a bit of novacaine was snuck in there. Wrong. Drastically wrong. Totally avoid since the numbness just doesnít kick in enough to have to suffer through the noxious fumes at the start.

Can: Pours golden near transparent. Little bubbly head dissipates quickly. Not much smell, what there is is similiar to a macro lager, light grain. Less flavor than I had hoped for. Not enough bitterness to give it a good bite. Was well carbonated but it didnít have much mouth feel, pretty thin and watery. Pretty average, good alternative to macro lager for the price.

Smells like piss. Good head. Nice amber color. Not that bitter, but for a macro it is. OK, and better than reg, fosterís.

Much better than its sister Lager. Nice Amber coloring, a little skunky and mildly hoppy. I liked the flavor. A decent Bitter from a can.

Here you have a baseline beer, completely average in every respect. Good thing it costs the same as a regular Fosters oil can, or else I would feel ripped off right now.........

I'll admit I like picking this up time to time. $2.15 for a big oil can, only reason I get it. Very little aroma or taste, can says "Ale with Carmel color added". T think that says it all. It is not a good beer but I like the novelty of it so I get one occasionally. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dastrn (115) - Warsaw, Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Poured clear and copper with a very large sudsy head. The nose was simple, with yeast, lemon candy, and a weak malt. The taste was very mild and grainy, with a mild bitter hop aftertaste. Light body, very watery. All around drinkable, and totally inoffensive. Iíd drink it if someone offered without complaint, but donít go out of your way for it, other than to check it off your list!

Iíd have to say as far as Fosters goes this is one of their better brews, still abit fizzy for my tast buds but for the strenght not to bad.

I did not know what to expect with the bitter. This is a good macro beer. Beautiful amber color, a pleasing bitter/malty flavor, weak head, but not what you would expect when you think Fosters. If you like bitters, it is worth a try.
