It's better than "Fosters Lager", but still wimpy for a bitter.

The best Australian beer ever made in Canada. Fosters ESB has just that slight twinge of hoppiness at the end to compliment its malty deep red-brown color. Plus, it comes in a huge can, so you look like a tough guy when you drink it. A thoroughly enjoyable beer that malty lager drinkers will love for its drinkability and hoppy ale drinkers will slightly appreciate for its fragrance and twinge of bitterness. If you haven’t tried this beer, you must.

Oil can. I drink at least a pint of this a night. I find the taste to be tolerable. A little mettalic but not so bad. The colder the better.

I was surprised. For a fosters beer this was actually quite good.

Doesn’t rock my world but has a nice sweet aftertaste. It’s much better than the reviewers give it credit for.

People bag on Foster’s all the time, but I think the bitter is really good. I wish it came bottled, but I was pleased nonetheless. (The can is pretty cool, though.) Exactly how a bitter should taste. Fruity nose, medium body, enough malt presence to balance the hops, and of course, a hoppy finish. I liked this stuff, and I’d buy it again. Oh. One more thing. 2.8% abv means you can drink a ton of these! Rock on!!!

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.

Oilcan. If you like a smooth rich bitter, this is the one for you. Not as hoppy as most bitters, and richer in flavors than most as well, this serves as a good pre-dinner beer.
