COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filtered and pasteurised. Available with added carbon dioxide in keg, can and bottled formats. First brewed in 1887.

"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."

I think this is a waste of my time. Tastes like anything from the big American breweries, but since it comes from Australia some people seem to think its exotic. The can is nice, but then I could just buy a 40oz.

Not too bad actually. Have enjoyed them from time to time. I think the success here is more marketing than taste.

Hardly any beer flavor at all, sure theres aluminum and alcohol flavor under the water but it aint near cheap enough to suffer through when you wanna get pissed

It’s really middle of the road - not great and not the worst. I wouldn’t bring it all the way down to the level of Bud - it’s got a little something going for it. Not sure what

DEbeer (192) - West Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2002
I really expected this beer to be a lot worse. It had a fairly good aroma, a little fruity taste (like Labatt Blue) and a really malty finish/aftertaste.

A very mediocre beer. Slightly more flavor than the oft-mentioned Bud (not that that is a great quality). Skunky aroma and a disappointing finish.

Beer from an oilcan - yuck! Too light, too bland, too carbonated - just to simple and straightforward. Think Bud, but with a more expensive price tag since its imported.

Clean taste, dry, somewhat nutty finish. Faint notes of alcohol. I can live without this.

What more can be said. Highly over-rated swill. Fosters: Australian for Bud.
