Not much of an ale fan however for the $$ and what is local...S.A fall river, pabst wiper etc...an oil can of this is not a bad deal. looks very nice all copper colored, but has no real nose to it. get this good and cold goes down well and stays down with no morning after issues. 5.5 abv....beats the lager fosters produces...at least for my $. Made now in Cnanada, Fosters ale, no too bad.

Big can in a convenient store on my trip to Maine. Pours a clean amber colour with a foamy warm cap, decent stay and dirty lacing. Corn taste with amber beer adjunct and a light bitter finish. The smell is not very good, with a typical big macro adjunct aroma. Not bad tasting, but still a big macro that I would not have again.

sampled a can a while back: not horrid. some crisp hop bite but still a lot of generic corn flavor. no skunk present, which is a plus. not a bad lawnmower beer, but not a likely revisit. Can't remember the price, but the big can was cheap.

pours a bright golden color with a tall foamy head. The head slowly fades down to a very thin layer that just hangs on until the last sip and makes only some spotty and slick lacing on the glass. The aroma is semi-sweet and grainy with a slightly floral hops in the background. The taste is somewhat sweet with husky and grainy alcoholic malt and very mild hops that add more bitterness than flavor. Its finish is quick and grainy. The mouthfeel is slightly thick and smooth with average carbonation and a medium body.

Pours a brown/beige color. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is bitter, but not in a good way, a touch of hops, an off flavor throughout. Overall a below average beer.

I'm guessing that my taste buds have matured a bit. I may have once thought this was pretty good, but it's "OK" at best. Thin, watery, grassy texture, aroma and flavor. I can't comment so much on the appearance as I was drinking it from the "oil can".

This is what it is. I wouldn't call this an ESB, more like an amber. A weak one too. Could use more malt. Been a while since I had a fosters lager oil can, so I bought both to sample and compare. Not premium by any means.

MMMMM-yummm - ale with caramel color added, -- well it's ok, big hon-kin can, kind of a slightly sweet flavor with so, so bitter after tones. Best thing about it is that it's a lot of liquid and I get to check off yet another beer on Beer-Pal.

I felt like a real man when I put this can in my hand, but that's where the compliments stop for this beer. There's an uneasy poor. Smells sour. Looks watery. Virtually no head and even less taste. What a let down. I was really looking forward to this one. Oh yeah. Is this a bitter, a pale ale, a premium ale???? Make up your mind then make a beer. In a word, "Swill"

A copper colored beer I decided to have with a wet steak sandwich. Huge frothy textured white head. Great hang time. As it settles big film presence is left behind. So far I am impressed with this Australian macrobrew. The metallic aroma in the nose starts the disappointment. Light, nearly watery, too much so for an ale. A sweet corny and grassy hops. I tried, I drank and won’t do it again.
