Pours a nice copper but everything nice stops there. No real aroma or taste. Kind of tastes like the can it came in. mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2004
Nice darkish colour but that’s about it. No real aroma and only very slight malt and bitterness in the flavour. I didn’t think they still made this so I picked this up at Quaffers. Ok so it was a mistake. pkbites (938) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Pours a massive marshmellow head that stays on like shaving cream. That screams artificial additives!!!!
Looks good with it’s deep copper hue, but it just may be REAL copper (from old, melted down pennies) that give it that color! I says this because it has a quick metallic taste to it.
Blech. People are fooled into paying premium for imported beer. Imported or not, this is an over priced mouthful of pig-slop. Stay away! harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Harsh metallic taste, with a very strong coppery bitter aftertaste. This might be better on draft, but I doubt if they even keg this. This was just as bad as Victoria Bitter. dropkickm79 (53) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 10, 2004

Not impressed, this has a pretty strong metallic taste, the pint can is overkill, i didn’t even finish it...
flavour is sickeningly sweet and just doesnt do it for me. CUB would be better served importing VB or Melbourne Bitter, both of them are far superior to this!! Braudog (6671) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Massive 75% head when poured from the ridiculous can. No aroma here. In the end, this isn’t much different than any other mass produced beer except it does have a little bittering. In a blind taste, I’d have guessed it was an average American ready-recipe amber ale. PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2004
25.5 oz "super" can. Well I drank it from the huge ass can, so I don't know what is looks like or smells like. The flavor was nothing great, but was good enough to sip out of a huge ass can. Flavor was a little metallic, maybe from being in the huge ass can. Slight malt start, and a bitter (acidic) finish, thin slightly creamy metallic mouth feel. Not bad, what can you say though it was in a huge ass can. heemer77 (5355) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 18, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2006 I was surprised. Went into this biased against anything from Fosters. Pours a dark red. This has a slightly malty and metallic nose. The aroma has some caramel and dirty sweat socks. The flavor is decent with a touch of orange from the hops and some malty sweetness. There is also a little bit of a cardboard metallic taste. Finishes with a sour, lemon note. Not bad for a cheap oil can beer. ClarkVV (6642) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2004
24 oz can. Huge amount of carbonation off the bat. The smell is bittersweet, like corn syrup, but also has some club soda like mineral/metal aroma. Flavor is sharp, not as adjunct ridden as the usual American Standard. I dont see much lager quality in this, it tastes sharp from the carbonation and quite metallic. Maybe a hint of malt on the finish, which tastes like corn and honey.
