1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I had a 25.4 oz oil can of this, and was anxious to try it, considering I like Fosters other offering. It pours a transparent, golden amber color, with a initial fluffy, foamy head. It looked good, and the initial taste was good...but not for long. It tastes cheap, to be honest, mostly a bitter and lingering grainy taste. Do the hops make it that bitter? I thought it was just me, but the bitterness didnt go away, it just mellowed a bit and became slightly sweet at the finish. Nothing special about this one, just a typical brew, mostly sour, bitter and slightly sweet at the finish. I see no reason to buy this again.

This was quite a foul experience the second time around. Bready malts, almost no hop profile. Some kind of artificial flavor, almost akin to ’grape soda’, or stale perfume...will not drink it again.

Amber thin beer with not a lot going for it. Aroma is off putting, bitter watery taste lingers longer than you might prefer.

25-ounce can in a pint glass. Terrible, but better than Fosters’ lager. Barely.

Can shared at a tasting at the Dancing Camel. Thanks Excellent Little Brother! Clear dark gold with a white head - foamy. Mud, sewer, garbage water aroma, mussy, sewage and a little sweet taste. Light body, vegetal finish.

I didn’t have too high of expectations and it probably came in just a little below. Lots of grass and the alcohol seems to come through a little. It’s kind of bitter like a peel or a husk.

Thick boy can from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is herbal lozenges and caramels. Taste is grandma-type candies. Sentimental but stale.

Big can for Australia Day 2016. Amber w ok head. Not much aroma. Malt dominates taste. May have some corn adjunct in there too. I had v low expectations and it was a bit better than expected but still pretty generic macro suds

Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks kerenmk. Caramel amber color with an off-white head. Bad aroma of rotten vegetables and graininess. Sweetish flavor with graininess, malt, caramel, a bit of vegetables, sugar, and a slightly bitterish finish, a bit metallic, with an alcohol note. Light-bodied. Bad.

25.4 super can into glass. Not bad at all for $3. Pours a dirty bronze with a super large head, white, full, frothy. Aroma of amber malt, metallic offerings, corn, bread, not cornbread, dry orange squash. Taste of amber malts mainly, tinny under currents of rice, malt, corn. A fine slap of rusted Ginger root comes out if no where, only to be pushed over by metallic offerings. No overall harshness going down, in fact, easy to drink. Took down the can relatively fast and easy. Abv listed at 5/5 is suspect, can offers no listing. Cheers to the first round it is. Easy drinking, fluid in delivery, not too bad of a macro, and cheap.
