Thin, watery, slight metallic taste, slightly unpleasant on the palate, I suppose this is meant to be drunk straight from the bottle, but I don’t see how this is a "premium beer"

300ml bottle. A clear, pale gold colour with a fine ring of loose white foam on the pour. An all-round grain, corn and sweet pale malt profile. Very little bitter presence finishing soft & sweet. Crisp, soft to medium carbonation, light in body & refreshing on the palate but relatively characterless.

(Bottled) This shit is ok "ice cold swill ".... sometimes I wanna drop the pretense ,note pad and goblet and slum it . Corona is my swill of choice but the fact that this isn’t as sweet as normal Fosters ,with a long bitter dryness , makes this ok ....like once a month only.....

Corny but relatively clean tasting lager with a sweet finish. Just about bearable if hardly worthy of its premium marketing tag.

330ml bottle - it was a bottle, I was on a football bus, it was lager. What more do I need to offer. Rank.

Bottle. Pale gold body. White head. Lager malts, grassy hops. Smells more premium than regular Foster’s, but not as premium as say Becks or Cobra. Light bitter taste. Dry finish.

Clear, light golden straw colour with a two-finger sized, bubbly white head that quickly halves in size and finally settles as a thin, soapy lacing.
Almost no noticeable aroma from this one other than a slight hint of corn and a background skunky bitterness.
There is a little corn that matches the nose and what initially comes across as citrus quickly turns out to be a skunky, bitter finish. I’m not too impressed with this one, although to be fair I wasn’t expecting much.
Thin & light bodied but not quite watery, there is a slight tang to the beer as well with a dry finish.

This one is a pretty basic, mass-produced pale lager that I would rate as about average for the style. It doesn’t have much of a smell or taste really although it’s not quite as bland as some others I have tried & it is drinkable if not enjoyable. Skunky at the end though.

Awful piss water that is so bad it has to be served nearly frozen to be able to drink it.

Not a gross beer. Quite drinkable, but there’s not much too it. Looks nice. Generous lacing from the pillowy head on a golden brew, but the nose is fermented corn and the taste is about the same.

0,33l bottle not bad light hoppy aroma, why is caled gold if it is yellow pale...frothy, white foam, medium bitterness, light sweetness, a bit sharp bitterness, not very smooth, medium body, average carbonation, I dont know, strange flavour, nothing exiting
