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.

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.

25.4 oz "oil can". Pours a really nice copper color along the lines of a microbrewed pale ale. I was going to rate this higher in appearance until I saw the words "caramel color added" on the side of the can. Kinda like cheating IMHO. Iím not getting much of an aroma at all on this brew, but there is some rather lively carbonation. First sip brings a sharp metallic bitterness, almost Saaz hops like, with a mild malty backbone, and a strong bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is decent, not heavy or watery. Overall, for a mass produced beer, this is well...decent. Not up to the standards of SNPA or Daleís Pale Ale, but I could see myself being quite content being at a cookout & washing down some grilled food with these.

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.........

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.
