BVery (5937) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 25.4 oz can. Clear orange-amber pour with a slightly spotty white head. Aroma and taste are light yeast, grain, and mild caramel. Far from good, but not offensive either.

Giant can from the grocery store. Pours a super transparent amber with a thick layer of off white head. Aroma of cheap malts and a hint of lemon. Taste pretty much the same as the aroma but way more malty.

Last second nab at market. This was almost my 2k that would have been unremarkable. Pours clear amber with frothy head. Nose is grainy and metallic. Tastes caramel, metal, light florals, grainy, and some hop bitterring. Slight sticky palate come in nice big can.

It has a very clear and bright golden color with a tall foamy head. The head slowly fades down to a very thin layer that just hangs on until the last sip and makes only some spotty and slick lacing on the glass. The aroma is semi-sweet and grainy with a slightly floral hops in the background. Its flavor has a somewhat sweet with husky and grainy alcoholic malt and very mild hops that add more bitterness than flavor. Its finish is quick and grainy The texture is slightly thick and smooth with average carbonation and a medium body.

Poured a straw color with a white head. Aroma of cardboard, pale malt, and grass. Flavor similar, not good but better than regular.

For being a cheap and unsophisticated beer, this is decent, has more of a full flavor than your average macro lager. Appearance is nice full caramel bronze color, although Foster's admits on the label that they cheated by adding caramel color. At least they're honest, although knowing the beer you're drinking is partially artificial is a little unsettling overall. Either way aroma is metallic, taste likewise has metallic notes to a grainy and moderately bitter flavor. Finish is not clean, didn't strike me as refreshing overall. Don't go out of your way to try it.

Oil Can (Old Notes)-Pours amber with a small head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. This beer is pretty pathetic.

Smells funny, looks good (after all, it clearly states on the can ALE WITH CARAMEL COLOR ADDED). Iím still looking for that lawnmower beer, low ABV, inoffensive flavor, good price. This stuff isnít much but it is better than regular Fosters and quite a few other adjunct brews. Brewed in Albany, Georgia.

Pours dark amber with a thick foamy head. Smells kinda sweet. Taste is like cheap malt and grass.

Senka (414) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2014
Big can in US, FL April 2012. Simple pale lager, rather flat and good with pizza. What else do you want after driving 400 miles? (note: no point in drinking sophisticated beers when you are tired)

It pours amber with a lot of foamy head. The aroma is a little better than your average corn based beer. So is the flavor. There is a slightly bready quality. This beer is generally better than I expected it to be. My curiosity is satisfied.
