I never saw this before today. Of course I never bothered to review Foster's Lager either, and I will have to do that some day - I remember one that tasted good, my first beer ever on a cruise ship. Anyway, this usually uninteresting mass-brand has a pretty nice ale here in a gigundous can.

It looks and smells great. It's darkish and has nice uniform head. The aroma is of finishing hops plus a nasty sweet smell, just like the lager.

The taste is almost right. It is bitter and hoppy as it should be. It is a little dull, and again, somewhat like the lager (but a lot better). The aftertaste is a little funky too.

Overall, this is better than I imagined. I really don't want to finish this whole can. Time to guzzle.
