look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

750 ml oil can poured into a glass mug
Sept. 19, 11 on the can.

A - Clear golden yellow with a tall white head. Great retention and thick, wispy lace left all over the glass, Foster's looks great!

S - Grainy dry straw aroma with pale malt and no hop finish.

T - Similar to the aroma, it's a lot of grainy malt and dry straw in flavor. A metallic hint comes out in the finish.

M - Light-bodied and oily, it's got a well-carbonated finish that's crisp, clean, and dry.

O - Meh. Novelty can, that's all this beer's got going for it.

Serving type: can

2.13/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Light gold/yellow with lots of small bubbles.

S: Acid and sour smelling. Not skunky. But definitely not pleasing to the senses.

T: Mostly metallic. It sort of tastes like the can it came in. No other hints of flavoring other than alcohol.

M: When served very cold it feels OK, you can drink it down.

Overall: Not recommended.

Serving type: can
