Not impressed, this has a pretty strong metallic taste, the pint can is overkill, i didnt 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!!

Massive 75% head when poured from the ridiculous can. No aroma here. In the end, this isnt much different than any other mass produced beer except it does have a little bittering. In a blind taste, Id have guessed it was an average American ready-recipe amber ale.

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.

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.

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.

I thought it was going to taste like shit but it was pretty good. I like the big can and nice taste.

Hey, not that bad. Some hop nose and a little bit of flavor. I'm glad I picked some of this up for our monthly "Ghetto Beer Night"

Not a half bad beer. Its basically a Fosters with some malt thrown in. Appearance is amber with a moderate head. Aroma is weak and not that pleaseant. Flavor is weak and watery but does have a little bit of malt flavor. Much better than regular Foster's but its the fat kid on the playground in the Bitter catergory!

I had this one out of a "stubby" - or is a "stubby" only the lager? Anyway, it was in the big oil can commonly used by Fosters. It poured with a nice, thick head which left a nice lace down the side of the glass as we went. Aroma was so-so; sweet malt up front, some bitterness in back. I was expecting more pronounced hop flavor. Would like to try this one on tap. A session beer.

Deep golden color. Fair size frothy white head, diminishes to a ring. Slightly malty flavor and aroma with a decent bitterness. Metallic taste present along with an unclean aftertaste present. Dry fnish. Better than the other Fosters oil can beer. An O.K. find for a beer sitting in a cooler next to malt liquors. One shouldn't expect too much.
