I thought it was funny that I picked this up out of the Stop and Shop in Woodbury NY because I had just talked about knocking back an oil can or two "back in the day" with a friend. The big can always made an impression upon young minds who were worshipping Molson and Moosehead at the time (early 80's). It was also entertaining to know Molson was brewing Foster's under contract for most of the US.

I poured the big can into a tall glass and watched as it made a large foamy head with a pale yellow existence below it. It didn't smell like anything I have been spoiled with recently, courtesy of the BA, this year, so the next stop was a taste.

The first impression was not good as an odd smokey flavor emerged and then disappeared with the light lager taste which resembled Molson on a bad day.
The beer cleared up a little and drank easily, but then the smokey flavor came back later. That was strange for me and I hoped this would be better on tap.
