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.

Appearance is clear amber with three fingers of white haed that sticks around for five minutes or so. Lacing is very fine.
Smell is just average.
Taste is slightly better than average for an ESB. Malty with a good amount of earthy hops.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with average carbonation. Lightly bitter finish.
Overall if you haven't tried the oil can frim Ft. Worth you need to give it a go. Tasty ESB.
