unixweb (237) - Sherman, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2008
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.

From old tasting notes. Tasted as "Fosters Special Bitter". Bright Amber orange color. Thick creamy beige head. Fragrant malt nose. Dryish malt flavor hints at pineapple and cantaloupe. Light bitter hop finish.

dlihcsnatas (708) - Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2016
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.
