Fairly bad citrus spin-off from what is already a terrible tasting lager beer.

Papsoe (25068) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Lightly sweet malt with a twist of lemon in the nose. Medium body, odd bonbon accents, some brewing cereal and cardboard. Rather tart lemon accents. Ends dry - almost astringent. 160110

Is there any point in this beer? It’s a fairly common trick to put a lime in some poor lager to disguise the stale nastiness of the experience, but substituting the lime with an odd, artificial lemon/lime flavour is just bizaare. Taste is pretty much standard musty grain lager, and some bitterness from the lemon/lime but no freshness.

fonefan (41314) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle 33cl. Clear glass.
Clear light yellow color with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, grain, toasted, cardboard, light hoppy, lemon. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. [20081231]

johndoughty (4619) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2008
Clear with no carbonation. Not a lot of body just a kind of sickly citrus taste. A novelty beer and not a very good one at that.My first Fosters rating and hopefully the last for a long a long time.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2008
Bottled. An anaemic hazy and very fizzy diluted urine coloured beer. The aroma is plastic. The taste is chemical with hints of lime. Harsh nasty flavours. Only useful in a heatwave.

Lemony pissy watery acidic. Better than the normal Foster´s though. maybe for a really hot day and big thirst

Bottled(330ml). -Malty, lemony and corny with soft carbonation and sourish finish. Crap.

Beer5000 (5470) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2007
330ml bottle @ Cardinal (sampled from someone else’s bottle, not the kind of beer to purchase when visiting Cardinal). Golden body with a foamy white head. Aroma is to much citrus/lime and no beer. Flavor is not balanced at all, its sticky, sour and vapid. Rather thin body and not much reminding of beer at all.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2007
(Bottled) Clear golden with a smallish, quite lasting and a bit lacy head. Corny, mildly acidic aroma with some lemon. Sweetish-corny-malty flavor with lemon, and a drier, acidic finish. Light to medium-bodied with quite smooth carbonation. Surprisingly drinkable with lemon actually making the bulk lager taste better.
