Certainly better than regular Fosters. It has a better body and more of a richertaste. While it is more bitter, it still possesses a smoothness that holds up all day or for the whole glass.

Big Can. Nice golden pour with a nice long lasting head. malty, grassy, sharp sweet refreshing. good on a nice hot summers day.

legion242 (2344) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2003
Pale orange color; white fluffy head; mild aroma hops in the nose. Nice body. Good hop character. I can't believe I liked this. I am ashamed.

BeerandBlues2 (12474) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Amber colored ale with a foamy white head. Hoppy and malty aromas. Sweetly bitter and buttery flavors. Clean and smooth palate. This ale is much better than Fosters Lager.

A nice change from Fosters Lager, but nothing spectacular. Again, the size of the can and the price make this a good find in a pinch.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 Attractive copper/amber color, and an off-white, lacing head. More malt than a typical ale, but very well balanced. This really is a decent beer, and Im actually surprised by the relatively low ratings. I bought only one can of this, but Ill definitely get more the next time.

Fosters Premium Ale has a thick, creamy head (as per the commercial description) and a clear, caramel or amber appearance (due to the added caramel color), with lots of bubbles streaming up, and a surprising amount of thick lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, but a sweet, yeast smell can be detected with deep inhalations. Taste is overwhelmingly bitter, with some breadiness present. But, the bitterness shows itself mid-sip and really stays with the drinker. Mouthfeel is medium, and Fosters Premium Ale finishes refreshing and semi-dry. Overall, I liked this quite a bit (Ive only ever had it once). Try it. RJT

NOthing to say about ti, just a regular lager with a lttle bit of bitterness in it. HArd to swallow after a while too.

Oil can purchased at the Mobil up the road. Dark golden bordering on amber with a dense rocky white head that shows moderate retention. Sweet bready biscuity flavor and aroma with a hint of earthy hops. Light toffee and mineral water flavor round this out. Pretty plain not horiibly complex but straightforward and somewhat crushable.
