Big old can of beer that's yellow clear, smells like corn and tastes something like a corn muffin. I was happy when I was done so I could move onto something else. Really thin as well.

I had no idea this one was even available in the US, and after having one, I wonder why they bothered. If "Fosters" is "Australian for beer", then "bitter" must be Australian for boring! Clear amber color, and a full frothy white head. (It is helped by the Belgian glass Ive optimistically poured it into) Nose is fresh, soft, and dry, with slight toffeeish hints. Im searching for any hint of fruit and come up empty. No worries, Ive had non-fruity ales, before, and non-bitter bitters, too, but they, also were boring. And thats the end of any thing I can possibly say in the positive about this brew. No flavor, no body, no texture, no bite, no nothing. Absolutely forgettable, and regrettable, in that the can is as large as the outback, at 25.4 ounces. Whatever I paid was too much... Why do they call it bitter when its not? Why call it "ale" at all? Metallic taste comes in, thanks to Mr. Aluminum. Farewell, Fosters Bitter, we shall never meet again...

Poured a clear light amber with a tall, creamy, slightly off-white head. The nose was of urine and copper. Tatse is like an American adjunct lager with more hop presence. the finish was hoppy and bitter. Mouthfeel was thin. This is crap. Someone please tell the Aussies to stop killing us with thier with their bad imported piss.

25.4 oz. can from Kellers IGA. Like the flagship Fosters, I love the big cans. But thats where the positives end on this one. Pours amber with a massive frothy eggshell head. I cant describe the aroma any better than the previous rater: "skunked malts." Maybe also some corn and artificial sweetness in the mix, too. I hated the flavor on this and choked down every gulp; it reminded me of malt liquor more than an EPA. Skunky, with a nasty booziness, some grain, corn, and hops, and also a rainwater-like flavor to make things even nastier. Light body, active carbonation. Skunky finish. I actually prefer the Fosters Lager.

fidelis83 (2357) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2010
Pours pale copper with a tall, sudsy, sort of oily looking off white head that has poor retention. Aroms is lots of metal, fruity yeast, mineral notes, corn, cereal grain and grass. Flavor is grass, toast, corn, metal, apple skins and wet grain. Palate is thin, a little oily on entry dry on entry and suprisingly light on carbonation. Not very good.

Nice malty sweetness and cereal. No particular strength but still an average American style ale.

Oil can - decent size foamy head, light copper color, pretty standard malt flavor with mild hops
