"sampled a can a while back: not horrid. some crisp hop bite but still a lot of generic corn flavor. no skunk present, which is a plus. not a bad lawnmower beer, but not a likely revisit. Can’t remember the price, but the big can was cheap."

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2006 Oil-can. Nice barley malt aroma. Amber color with big head. LIght malt and moderate hops flavor. Smells great but a let down with the flavor.

Big ass can. Apricot colored with a white head. A roma is very malty and a bit odd...chemical in a way. Flavor is pretty bland...some light malts and light hops. Damn am I glad I didn’t have to drink the whole can.

BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 25.4 oz can. Clear orange-amber pour with a slightly spotty white head. Aroma and taste are light yeast, grain, and mild caramel. Far from good, but not offensive either.

hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Can... Clear golden ale with a small, fluffy, white head. Long lasting tight retention. Minerally, metallic nose. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Metallic bitterness hardly buffers intense corn and cereal grain sweetness. Sweet finish.

DocLock (11049) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Thanks to my project manager for finding this in Alex, NC. Pours a deep shade of gold with huge, creamy head. Aroma of hopcit, honey, some florals. Tastes bready malty, with solid honey and hopcit elements at mid palate and an increasing sweetness as it finishes. Not bitter, but not bad.

jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2008
2008-09-07. Dark amber body with a good sized foamy beige head and lace after a vigorous pour. (3+) Flavour is mild, light caramel malt and bitterness. Mild aroma, malt and cereals, muted hops. Average to light palate. Meh. Giant can from Downtown Wine & Spirits, Anchorage

phaleslu (10668) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2009
25.4 oz. can from Keller’s IGA. Like the flagship Foster’s, I love the big cans. But that’s where the positives end on this one. Pours amber with a massive frothy eggshell head. I can’t describe the aroma any better than the previous rater: "skunked malts." Maybe also some corn and artificial sweetness in the mix, too. I hated the flavor on this and choked down every gulp; it reminded me of malt liquor more than an EPA. Skunky, with a nasty booziness, some grain, corn, and hops, and also a rainwater-like flavor to make things even nastier. Light body, active carbonation. Skunky finish. I actually prefer the Foster’s Lager.

onceblind (10562) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Transparent pale copper. Thin fading white head. Slightly metallic biscuity aroma with a touch of pale grains and toffee. Flavor was bland and the same; some metallic biscuit, and a touch of earthy pale grains and a whiff of toffee.
