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 Ive had.

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.

[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.

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.

blipp (8388) - 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.

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.

SudsMcDuff (8142) - .....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!

DruncanVeasey (8056) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Stubby 24oz can from Big Save split with Matt (and the plughole) at the house in Kauai, 27/08/12.. Copper with a slim but lacing off-white cap. Aroma of crusty, sundried, sea-soaked swimming shorts...something unspeakably nasty, cooked mussel meat and candlewax. Rusty, sweet breakfast cereal, slimy, shredded wheat flavour. Tesco bitter? Truly horrendous.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 10, 2009
Sent in a picture to be uploaded...Can. Pours with a fluffy off-white head and a sparkling clear brown body. Aroma is grainy and lightly grassy. Taste is grainy and adjunct filled with a light bitterness, but no hop flavor. Quite Fizzy

Well who knew Fosters had an ale?! Nooooot good! Just about as bad as the lager, with minimal differences.
