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.

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 didnít 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. Itís 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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden copper color. Thick, creamy beige head, about three fingers. Pretty good read retention, pretty decent lacing. It is a narrow mouth can, so pouring is hard. Over pouring is easy, so take your time. Wonder what it would look like without the artificial coloring?
Aroma is yeasty, and bready. Light to medium roasted malts. A little wet hay smell in there. I also smell some earty hops.
Taste is medium roasted malt. Itís a little bitter, it kicks in late in the sip. Itís odd, but its satisfying. Thereís a little caramel. But the main characteristic is the bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium. Its semi dry. Quite refreshing, decently drinkable. Yes, itís kind of bitter, but too much so.
Overall, I enjoyed this much more than I thought I I would. I think I would prefer this over most lagers. Iím glad I tried it. I recommend you try it too.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is a 25.4 oz can. Clear, light amber in color. Very impressive head.
Thereís an awful near urine aroma to this beer. Thereís also a metalic smell. It smells like a homebrew that went terribly wrong.
Tastes like an American lager, albeit with more flavor. The hop is present, but the brew is still thin and without interest. The aftertaste is short and largely hoppy. It is bitter, but little beyond that.
