Great on a 110-degree afternoon. Crisp, long covering of the tongue. Strong scent of bright hops. Not bad for a Canadian brew.

I liked Regular Fosterís ,but this one is smoother,and Tastes Even BETTER than the lager! the English Bitter is a good way to go!

One of my favorite beers. The aroma isnít much upon opening, contrary to how it describes itself..but itís a bit different if you are expecting an American style lager. But it is a good combination of taste and how well it umm, hits me. For itís strength, it has some sessionability, which is lacking in other beers of this type.

I used to drink these in grad school because i thought they were better than the lager. I got a big surprise on this one. The appearance is actually nice when not viewed through the opening in the top of a can wrapped in a paper bag. Nice lacey head. Had a nice floral hop aroma, and tastes really good. Nice citrous and pine flavors intermingled with a lovely malted flavor. I doubt seriously that the one I consumed had only 2.8 ABV--maybe thatís what it is in Utah or something. I was really surprised with how good this beer was. I may even keep the next one i buy wrapped in the paper bag just for old timeís sake.

A light, somewhat hoppy bitter. Definitely the best beer in the Fosterís line, it has a lovely amber color, smooth texture, and clean finish. A great beer to get drunk on!

Can: I like this beer! Fresh, maintained a creamy head. Biscuity malt with gentle hoppiness. Not very bitter but then again "bitter" seems to be as relevent to British beer as "pale". I don't understand all the low ratings.
