UPDATED: JUN 20, 2004 Rerate Outback - Father's Day - obligatory Foster's - never again! They must have one hell of an imprter to convince Americans to buy this - or perhaps all Austrailian beer is this bad - Cooper's isn't! Original 2.1 Over hyped Aussie export - if it was an American beer - it would sit alongside the Old Mil in my opinion. Slight skunky smell, tinny aftertaste. Always taste better at Outback in a frosted mug with a steak though.

Its somewhere around 5.0% abv. Its rather mellow, less flavour than regular Fosters even. Needs a bit more of a kick.

I have friends that are drawn to the novelty of the big can. The flavor of the beer however isnt any better than a domestic macrobrew that you can pick up. Has a slight smell to it, but i dont know if I would call it skunky. Havent really tried it in a bottle to see if that would help it out.

Has the american style down, try to make up in marketing for what the beer lacks. The plain brew doesnt have much going for it.

Fosters australian for over-rated. Somewhat ok, very average considering the hype. Basically I would say heinekenesque in flavor and hype.
