Can, light amber with a giant white head. corn aroma that makes me want to cuss, and in fact i did. no bitter? donít call something bitter if there isnít gonna be any, and donít call it special unless what makes it a special bitter is the fact that the specialness comes from the complete lack of anything close to bitter. now iím cussing again. this is horrid. Iíve seen the commercials "Fosterís Australian for beer" What is Australian for Try? At least try to make a decent beer. did someone come up with a name that they thought would sell then just poured any old crap into? "Fosters Special Bitter, Texan for shit."

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2007 Pours amber with hugh white head that is mostly lasting. Aroma is very faint. Flavor is slightly bitter with some malt. Lively carbonation.

The only good thing about this beer is it comes in a really big can and probably won't kill you(right away).Bad corny old swillwaukee flavor. Yuk!

A little more kick than regular Fosters. It has the bite of an ESB but beyond that not much else.

The only thing it has going for it is the full bodied taste. I normally enjoy beers with a low alcohol content and full flavour, but this is one beer that failed the test.

Not impressed, this has a pretty strong metallic taste, the pint can is overkill, i didnít even finish it... flavour is sickeningly sweet and just doesnt do it for me. CUB would be better served importing VB or Melbourne Bitter, both of them are far superior to this!!

Pailhead (4414) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Can: Aroma is lightly sweet and a little sour. Pours a transparent amber with a big white head with good retention. Lightly sweet with a big metallic finish and some hops. Moderate metallic aftertaste is really offensive.

This was god awful. Orangish color with a long lasting head. Aroma was of disgusting adjuncts, phenolic I guess. Flavor was sour and artificial disgusting flavor. Corn, corn, corn. Quite possibly one of the worst I have tasted. Maybe its just me, but I would rather drink Bud Light. In terms of price cost effectiveness to flavor to desired results ratio - Ha!

Better than a Coors Light, perhaps better than a regular Fosters, but still nasty, and the can told me they added "Carmel Color." Jesus Lord!

This beer is quite more complex than its ancestor, the Foster’s lager; however, this is the only thing real good I can say about it. The aroma is metallic, something between sour orange and old brass. The taste is similar to the cheep force fermented brews like the Bud Hurricane or Steel reserve. It has a bit more malt than expected and finishes with a long after taste. Not horrible on a hot summer day, but mot something I will look for.
