This was a nice beer to drink on a day spent sailing, swimming,and lying in the sun. Not spectacular,but I would drink it again given the circumstances.

Well, my sons and I had three brews out in the boat for a great Fourth of July sail on lake Charlevoix. I’ll rate them, worst to best, starting with this one. Actually, the only thing good about this beer was that I was drinking it out on a beautiful lake in the sunshine with great company!

OK, if I am at a bar and they don’t have any decent, interesting beer on tap (other than Bass - b/c Bass is my standby) So the bar doesn’t have Bass on tap and my choices are like Bud, BudLight, Miller, etc. AND Fosters...I will get the Fosters. So I guess I am saying it is usually the best choice out of a bunch of crappy beers at a typical American bar.

Better than the standard american lager swill but not by much. A little more flavor (light hopps, some malt) but the operative word here is light. Would be good to slam a cold one down after mowing lawn but not good for much else.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2008 Foster’s, Australian for ripoff. Not a bad beer, but don’t believe the hype.

Very close to water, no bitternes or power at all!

A touch better than the average macroswill in that it does have SOME malt flavor and less rice/sugar/adjunct flavor. Still, it’s not very impressive.

agree with smc123, success in marketing than taste, which is watery, bland and with little hoppyness at all
