Oh man. I can’t believe how much this beer is getting ripped on.
My styles of choice are Belgian dubbels and quads,Impy stouts and strong lagers. IMO tho,this is one of THE best session beers out there. Not much character but overall easy drinking with a nice slightly sweet finish. This blows Crudweiser,Miller and the rest of the American macro piss beers outta the water. So saying that I’m giving this high honors as a great one dimensional slammy beer. Six oil cans for $10,how can ya go wrong? Odyn (268) - New York, USA - APR 13, 2008
Certainly better than regular Foster’s. 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. Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2009

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 (13594) - 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. altkencru (143) - USA - NOV 3, 2005
A nice change from Foster’s Lager, but nothing spectacular. Again, the size of the can and the price make this a good find in a pinch. DJC (238) - USA - NOV 16, 2006
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 I’m actually surprised by the relatively low ratings. I bought only one can of this, but I’ll definitely get more the next time. ronaldtheriot (1951) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Foster’s 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 Foster’s Premium Ale finishes refreshing and semi-dry. Overall, I liked this quite a bit (I’ve only ever had it once). Try it.
