1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

Awful. What an embarrassment.
This should never be representative of Australian Beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
375ml bottle. Clear pale yellow piss colour with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit chemically but there’s a slightly sweet malty hop aroma there. Taste is much the same slightly sweet malts but with a chemical aftertaste left in the mouth. Watery feel. Average lager really, far from Australia’s "finest beer".

Very clear pale yellow with a thick, cream coloured head. Cheap malt and straw on the nose, very muted. Slight honey, dry malts, very slight floral hop bitterness. Reasonably creamy finish, well carbonated and dry.

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

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.
