Pale orange color; white fluffy head; mild aroma hops in the nose. Nice body. Good hop character. I can't believe I liked this. I am ashamed.

Amber colored ale with a foamy white head. Hoppy and malty aromas. Sweetly bitter and buttery flavors. Clean and smooth palate. This ale is much better than Fosters Lager.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 Attractive copper/amber color, and an off-white, lacing head. More malt than a typical ale, but very well balanced. This really is a decent beer, and Iím actually surprised by the relatively low ratings. I bought only one can of this, but Iíll definitely get more the next time.

Fosterís Premium Ale has a thick, creamy head (as per the commercial deScription) and a clear, caramel or amber appearance (due to the added caramel color), with lots of bubbles streaming up, and a surprising amount of thick lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, but a sweet, yeast smell can be detected with deep inhalations. Taste is overwhelmingly bitter, with some breadiness present. But, the bitterness shows itself mid-sip and really stays with the drinker. Mouthfeel is medium, and Fosterís Premium Ale finishes refreshing and semi-dry. Overall, I liked this quite a bit (Iíve only ever had it once). Try it. RJT

NOthing to say about ti, just a regular lager with a lttle bit of bitterness in it. HArd to swallow after a while too.

Oil can purchased at the Mobil up the road. Dark golden bordering on amber with a dense rocky white head that shows moderate retention. Sweet bready biscuity flavor and aroma with a hint of earthy hops. Light toffee and mineral water flavor round this out. Pretty plain not horiibly complex but straightforward and somewhat crushable.

Re-Rate 01/20/02: Pours a nice deep amber, generous head and nice lace. Nose is malt, hints of citrus?, start is malt, the middle is light to medium, and the finish is nicely hopped, acidic and moderate to high carbonation. Clean and fresh, personally, I kind of like this beer, no not a world beater, but good none the less.

Nice golden amber color. Thin cream colored head. There is a slight bitterness in the smell. A little malty. Nothing great. It has a bitterness to the flavor but nothing else. Its quite watery, but much better than normal Fosters which really does suck. This isn't half bad. Would probably be better on tap.
