Pours a golden copper color. Thick, creamy beige head, about three fingers. Pretty good read retention, pretty decent lacing. It is a narrow mouth can, so pouring is hard. Over pouring is easy, so take your time. Wonder what it would look like without the artificial coloring?

Aroma is yeasty, and bready. Light to medium roasted malts. A little wet hay smell in there. I also smell some earty hops.

Taste is medium roasted malt. Itís a little bitter, it kicks in late in the sip. Itís odd, but its satisfying. Thereís a little caramel. But the main characteristic is the bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium. Its semi dry. Quite refreshing, decently drinkable. Yes, itís kind of bitter, but too much so.

Overall, I enjoyed this much more than I thought I I would. I think I would prefer this over most lagers. Iím glad I tried it. I recommend you try it too.

This is a 25.4 oz can. Clear, light amber in color. Very impressive head. Thereís an awful near urine aroma to this beer. Thereís also a metalic smell. It smells like a homebrew that went terribly wrong. Tastes like an American lager, albeit with more flavor. The hop is present, but the brew is still thin and without interest. The aftertaste is short and largely hoppy. It is bitter, but little beyond that.

Not really all that great. Just a cheap drink. Might as well be expensive water. Smell is almost not existent skunk, pours a light copper with about a half inch beady head. Overall a cheap, overmarketed beer with no remarkable characteristics. nothing interesting.

Verkrijgbaar in grote hoeveelheid. Gedronken in Amerika in een kleine winkel in the middle of nowhere.

swillguzzler99 (173) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2015
From a 25.4 ounce oil can. Pours light copper with half-inch lingering head. Mild-medium carbonation. Very faint nose, almost imperceptible of yeast. Taste is mild, just a hint of skunk and turps. Much better than their lager, but not going to set any world records.

ordybill (829) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Poured from a 25 OZ oil can into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a moldy yeast smell not that great. Appearance Ė The best part of this ale is its color. A clear orange with a large white head. Taste- Has a faint sweet flavor with a nice dose of malt. Palate- A medium bodied, moderately carbonated ale. Overall- A truly average beer, I prefer Fosterís Lager but even that is not an impressive brew.

rougeau13 (2275) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Clear Amber with rapidly dissipating off-white bubbles. Aroma of grain, corn pops, a hint of grass, and cake. Taste is grain and a little sweetness with a touch of hop bitterness. Light-medium bodied, bubbly, and slightly dry.

Vestlake (253) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Pours a nice amber with a one finger white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is better than regular Fosters. Nice malt taste with a tiny bit of bitterness.

Hiero (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Beautiful looking beer. Nice ruby color with plenty of carbonation and a medium size head that disappears fairly quickly. Taste is not quite as good as the looks. Light, flavorless body with a bit of bitterness that disappears in the aftertaste. Very drinkable, but also forgettable.
