2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brewed and canned in Canada (25.4 oz). Light grassy, hoppy aroma. Clear amber color with a creamy off-white head. Starts with a malty flavor that is somewhat balanced towards the finish by hop. Better than any mass produced common American products.

Oil can poured a clear amber with a small l,asting ivory head. Aromas of carmel and fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel and light fruitiness with a crisp lightly sweet finish. Decent session beer. Iwas pleasently surprised.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big can. Poured dark amber with an average frothy white head that lasted. Moderate malty resin aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor with a medium finish. Drinkable brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can as shown. Pours a orange gold with thick frothy white head that last awhile. The aroma is wheat and corn malt. Similar flavor to the aroma with a skunky finish. A decent English pale ale from Fosters.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks kerenmk. Caramel amber color with an off-white head. Bad aroma of rotten vegetables and graininess. Sweetish flavor with graininess, malt, caramel, a bit of vegetables, sugar, and a slightly bitterish finish, a bit metallic, with an alcohol note. Light-bodied. Bad.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 mL "oil can." Fuck, these oil cans make the initial pour
difficult. Um... well... the initial pour is clear amber with
3/4 of the glass being head. Decent head retention and nice
lacing. Corny aroma with some sublte leafy hop notes. Taste is
bitter hops, caramel and lots of corn. A very nice effort from
Foster’s, but it still has that macro thing going on. It is
better than Bud American Ale, so, it has that going for it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber colored ale with a foamy white head. Hoppy and malty aromas. Sweetly bitter and buttery flavors. Clean and smooth palate. This ale is much better than Fosters Lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was definitely better than I was expecting, although it was not very special or bitter. Brownish orange with a very thick foamy head that dissipated quicker than I expected. Light hops aroma. Flavor was really not bitter in any way, it was rather mellow with a malt presence. A little tinny and thin which I WAS expecting. Dry, lightly fruity finish. Overall I think if they tweaked this one a little it would be worth another try but as it stands it is kind of mundane.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
750ml can. Old rate. This is putrid stuff, tastes like a shitty pale lager, it is brewed in texas.
