I had a 25.4 oz oil can of this, and was anxious to try it, considering I like Fosters other offering. It pours a transparent, golden amber color, with a initial fluffy, foamy head. It looked good, and the initial taste was good...but not for long. It tastes cheap, to be honest, mostly a bitter and lingering grainy taste. Do the hops make it that bitter? I thought it was just me, but the bitterness didnt go away, it just mellowed a bit and became slightly sweet at the finish. Nothing special about this one, just a typical brew, mostly sour, bitter and slightly sweet at the finish. I see no reason to buy this again.

Grabbed one a week ago for a road beer on my way home. Thought it tasted like Fosters Lager or at least pretty close to it. Today I grabbed a Fosters Lager for my road beer and got a Fosters ale to drink afterwards. Got home and poured this into a glass. Dark golden brew with small head and grainy aroma. Taste is mild malt and just enough hops to balance it out. Yep this is very close to the same taste as Fosters Lager but with a bit more mouth feel. My CAN shows this to be made in USA by Oil Can Brewery, Fort Worth, TX.

Its one of my smash beers and always a challenge to chug one oil can. I love the old commercials from my childhood too but all that does not save it from being a low brow beer. It tastes better than most macros but has a bit of a harsh edge in the grain and just a subtle hop character. Maybe this is why so many people drink the blue can more.

odinswort (1) - California, USA - JUL 24, 2016 does not count
This was quite a foul experience the second time around. Bready malts, almost no hop profile. Some kind of artificial flavor, almost akin to grape soda, or stale perfume...will not drink it again.

Amber thin beer with not a lot going for it. Aroma is off putting, bitter watery taste lingers longer than you might prefer.
