Suppose to be one of the flagship premium beers in Australia. How it ever got any rating as a premium beer is beyond me. The battle is lost even before you get this stuff in to your mouth. An off rotting type smell that does nothing to help the palate. Still it does have a good clear golden look with a nice gold label. All in All probably the worst beer in Australia other then Tooheys Red and its close relation VB.

En ikke alt for stor oplevelse. En meget almindelig pilsner der nu smager godt nok, men meget konsumagtig.

Had to try this on vacation in Australia since the bottle claimed to contain "Australia’s Finest" beer. Apparently Foster’s is just a decoy. Overall not bad for a typical lager.

Sucked down a bunch of these at an event at the Australian embassy. Pours a clear gold, soft white head. Nose of cheap malt, bad honey, corn syrup, straw. Flavor is sickly sweet, cheap malt, corn syrup, a little metal. Slick finish. Bad.

This is what I drank when I believed the marketing and didn’t know what beer could taste like. That was 20 years ago between the ages of 18 -24. Just the same as most other mass produced Australian Lager. I often wonder if Fosters and Crown are the same product in different packaging so a premium can be charged for Crown. If you do have one, have it very, very cold and on a hot day where you are thirsty enough for anything to taste good. (i.e. take out of fridge and place in freezer, go mow the lawn for 30 minutes, then drink.) To my mind that is the only way you will appreciate it.

Bottle. A dull but inoffensive lager with grain, corn, lemon and vegetal characters across both nose and palate. Light to Mellon body, medium carbonation with a short, moderate intensity pithy hop finish.

Nothing special here, worse than average pale lager. Watery, musty, grainy. Give this on a pass.

Fisler (277) - Bamberg, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
Bernsteinfarben, Schaum hält sich gut. Aber bei mir zeigte sich ein eigenartiger, orangener Fleck im Schaum - Farbstoff? In der Nase Malz, im Geschmack Malzbier, süß werdend, leicht bitter im Abgang. Sehr süffig.

On tap @ club central Hurstville. Sweet sweet nose. Small head. Little carbonation. Little lacing. Taste is full on bubblegum Sweetness followed by a little hops & then the usual CUB mixture of rubber, metals & vegetables in the finish. Funnily enough this tastes better than the bottled version. Overpriced, overhyped.

Clear golden, small white head. Sweet malt, cereal aroma. Light, watery and malty flavour. Sweet, sticky finish.
