Can. Rich amber beer with a cream head. Light malt aroma. Light caramel and light mineral flavor. Medium bodied. Light caramel and light mineral lingers. mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
[1693-20080907] 25.4floz can. Alcoholic grainy yeast aroma. Clear, amber orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Toasted grainy yeast flavour is mildly bitter with lots of skunk. Medium body. Not particularly appetizing. blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
This is the type of gnarly gnarlington I usually save for tasting, but today I am keeping this beast all to myself. Comes in a can. Pours light amber with a fluffy off white head. Corny and sweet, with hints of cardboard, and day-old wet towel. Pretty brutal, honestly. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2013
25.4oz oil can. Shared with friends at Eli’s, enjoyed from a small styrofoam cup. Pretty good, one-finger khaki head. Light to medium body. Light, smoother carbonation. Not much flavor to this, but nothing too offensive about it. Lightly toasty, light caramel, light english-type hop. Light sweet taste. Pretty agreeable ale, I guess. Fine to share and washed my smoked turkey down with. douglas88 (9631) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2012
Big damn can. I was desperately looking for a new tick- here I go! Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. A sweet nose of grains and honey. A sweet fairly clean flavor, some light ripeness, caramel, light bitterness. Very smooth. Decent.

750 ml oil can. Pale amber beer with a thick, sticky off-white head. Aroma is fairly earthy and a bit dusty. A hint of peach and some caramel malts. Flavour is a bit grainy, but this is probably still the best of the Australian "bitters" that I’ve had. b3shine (9150) - Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Oil can to pint (from notes). Looks fine; a transparent dark gold with white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and Tastes like regular Fosters, only a little richer and maltier (which is a good thing). Average on the palate. A major improvement from regular Fosters, and good for what it is. drowland (9077) - Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Well who knew Fosters had an ale?! Nooooot good! Just about as bad as the lager, with minimal differences. SudsMcDuff (8494) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2006
rather tame beer, can be lovely at times, but of lower quality...As said by one guy who reviewed this beer earlier, A very underrated beer that gets sold out quickly in the super markets, good taste and great price...U gotta love Australia mate!

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2008 Rerate Too much foam; funky stale fruit aroma; worn out bitter taste - similar to sucking on copper pennies. Original 2.9 Better than regular Foster’s - which is not saying a whole lot. Nice fluffy head with good lacing - a bit of a wet towel aroma to it. I like the copper color to it. Good balance of hops and malts. Overall not bad - does not stand up to British bitters of course - but a good solid effort by a macro brewer down under.
