Nothing too special here at all really. It is a bit better than normal fosters because it has some flavour but it still isn't anything tasty. A little hint of hops and a slightly darker colour make it better than some but still not great. MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Well, I don't know exactly what to say. This is superior to the regular Foster's Lager for sure. I taste a touch of malt and a little hops and this beer finishes dry and clean. This is not "special" in any way other than it is ten times better than the standard Foster's crap. aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2003
I poured this 25.4 ounce "oil can" of beer into my large weizen glass (32 oz.) and was greeted by a beautiful copper colored beer with a magnificent head that very slowly faded to a light, rocky foam. Thick veins of lace were left at the top of the glass, with moderate lacing appearing while drinking the beer. The aroma was very pleasant, with caramel malt and fruit notes, with a bit of hop spice. As I suck some of this ale through the foam, the taste mimics the aroma, with a clean, sweet caramel maltiness followed by a stronger bitterness. The finish is rather clean, with a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is a bit thin perhaps, but not at all watery. bac080 (398) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2003
Foster's - Australian for THIS CAN IS FRICKIN' HUGE! The beer itself isn't that bad, I guess. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2003
I like it better than the traditional fosters. Its an ordinary bitter ale there is nothing special about it.

Pours a nice amber with a tall frothy white head. Mostly diminishes with nice lacing. Maybe a little better than standard Fosters but mainly from appearance. Good beer when all other choices are supermarket varieties. But still far from a true "special bitter". farmboy (218) - Barwon Heads, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 Not the worst light beer I’ve tasted by any means. Highly inoffensive. I would drink this stuff agin if I was driving.
RERATED: Tried this again and they have done something to the brewing process. It is swill. Highly offensive garbage. I boguth a six-pack and couldn’t even finish the first bottle. I can’t even give them away. Down the sink they went. beastdog75 (364) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Better than the lager, but still just an ordinary tasting ale. Nice copper color, some fruity characteristics. Smells cheap, and some adjunct taste does carry over into the flavor. HarmonKill-a-Brew (407) - Wilmar, Arkansas, USA - AUG 8, 2003
Beautiful appearance which was easily the best thing this beer had going for it...otherwise pretty average. Still, better than regular Fosters. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2003
It's better than "Fosters Lager", but still wimpy for a bitter.
