"A light-coloured lager style, it presents full malt character with a balanced clean hop bitterness. Combined with a slightly hoppy, but yeasty/malty nose, Foster's lager is a full bodied beer with excellent drinkability."

Nice beer for the beach, and prepping your self for the giant dipper. Can is always fun.

Not bad on draft.Tastes like an American Standard with a skunky aroma and bitter aftertaste.

Is the alcoholic content different in the UK version? (Perhaps I recall incorrectly, but I thought the can said 4.0%.) The best that can be said of this is that it holds its carbonation a long time, so even a long while later it had a nice palate. Bitter finish. Aroma of wood chips. Gets better after a few sips but otherwise not very nice--typical of the style--perhaps this is better than many other examples in the style, however.

Not bad but nothing I’d drink alone. Regular, American kinda flavor. Smelly skunk flavor. Bitter? Okay...But I like em a bit more bitter than this. Good beer if you’re dreaming about Elle Macpherson and those luscious...Ahh...Not a bad beer overall. Good head!

Canadian? Australian? Budweiser with less taste? In the case of Bud perhaps thats a good thing....

An excellent beer, though a tad bitter. I understand that the Australians wont touch the stuff with a 10 foot pole, though. The 25-oz cans are hella cool to rock into the party, but the drawback is that the beer is expensive, and it does lend itself well to hangovers. Again, this is the kind of brew you can have at a nice restaurant when youre eating with your girlfriend or something. Its just a nice, refreshing beer, but its got to be ice cold.

Average lager. Sub-par taste.
