The drink that I have been waiting for all my life.......................... irishcarbomber (3) - California, USA - SEP 7, 2007 does not count
Great on a 110-degree afternoon. Crisp, long covering of the tongue. Strong scent of bright hops. Not bad for a Canadian brew. gpolice99 (32) - Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2002
I liked Regular Foster's ,but this one is smoother,and Tastes Even BETTER than the lager! the English Bitter is a good way to go! Columbusneon (2) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2012 does not count
One of my favorite beers. The aroma isn’t much upon opening, contrary to how it describes itself..but it’s a bit different if you are expecting an American style lager. But it is a good combination of taste and how well it umm, hits me. For it’s strength, it has some sessionability, which is lacking in other beers of this type. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2003
I used to drink these in grad school because i thought they were
better than the lager. I got a big surprise on this one. The appearance
is actually nice when not viewed through the opening in the top of
a can wrapped in a paper bag. Nice lacey head. Had a nice floral
hop aroma, and tastes really good. Nice citrous and pine flavors intermingled
with a lovely malted flavor. I doubt seriously that the one I consumed
had only 2.8 ABV--maybe that's what it is in Utah or something. I was
really surprised with how good this beer was. I may even keep the next one i buy
wrapped in the paper bag just for old time's sake.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2015 Sampled from 25.4 oz can in pint glass.
Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy off white head that drops slowly. Color is a clear amber with abundant carbonation.
Aroma: mild with bread being dominate, some caramel and a bit of earthy/floral hops.
Mouthfeel: medium and slick with a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: bready malts dominate, some caramel sweetness with a definite hop presence.
Overall: had to update my review on this one. Originally I rated it very average, but after several revisits this beer has really grown on me and I could drink it everyday. A very tasty ESB at a bargain price. camay1997 (75) - patton, California, USA - AUG 13, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2017 Light tan head that was short lived. The body is clear with a high amber color. It smells metallic and foulish, like wet laundry. It's not gross, but I don't rush to drink more. There's a near IPA finish on the palette. It's malty and sweet. It's good but not exceptional.
