Old rating. Thin Amber. Corn, caramel, generally cardboardiness. Pretty gross.

Why is this so carbonated? Anyway, this is a bad beer. what else can I say that its score doesnít.

Nice darkish colour but thatís about it. No real aroma and only very slight malt and bitterness in the flavour. I didnít think they still made this so I picked this up at Quaffers. Ok so it was a mistake.

How can they advertise this as an ale. Hard to differentiate this from the regular. I suppose it is a bit bitter on the finish, but I found the difference to be pretty negligible. Donít waste your time.

From the big ass can, bitter and bland is all I have to say about this one. Really light, and bitter hops (more bitter than hoppy). I prefer regular Fosters to this one, but itís not terrible.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2006
A light caramel which probably has little if anything to do with caramel malt. Aroma was initially slightly of broccoli, but subsided to a vague steely graininess. Fairly sweet with some huskiness but little overall malt character. The color most likely came from a touch of roasted malt or food coloring. Bland, negligibly bitter finish. Drinkable, but not very good.

Not bad for coming in a cheap large can. Tastes like a macro, but with more hops. A little bit of fruit flavor. Drink it cold.

Pour a copperish color with a small white head. The aroma was bad with a mettalic and slight skunky quality. The flavor is off with a watery texture and a finish that leaves an unwanted flavor.

Has the recipe been changed or something? The stubby I bought clearly says 2.5% not 4.5%. Otherwise the description fits it - definitely copper coloured and hey! how did they get such a metallic taste into a glass container? The head is virtually non-existent. Didnít detect much smell. If it wasnít for the horrible metallic taste it would be almost drinkable. This is the cheapest beer Iíve ever bought - $A1.25 for a single 375 ml stubby, which would be cheaper still if you bought a slab of it - but the question is: Why would you?
