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

Itís drinkable, I suppose. Iíd prefer it to a bud any day of the week. A shade of decent hop flavor.

Its Bud with some hops, not hops that are all that good, but at least it can be distiguinshed from water (its not neccesarily beter than water, but you can tell them apart.)

Sigmund (5618) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2003 (330 ml bottle, ABV 4.5%): Light golden colour, large head that doesn't last long. Initial fresh Heineken-like aroma that doesn't linger, bland watery flavour, aftertaste has a little strange and unpleasant bitterness in the end. So boring they could have named it "Neville Chamberlain".

An overbearing hop taste that makes me wonder why I didnít just order a Michelob.

I once had Australian-brewed Fosters. It was better than the current Canadia-brewed version, though in a hard-to-define way (most likely the water). This is mainstream beer, but better than the Miller/Bud stable, bottle or draft. It is saved from being a bit too sweet by the more noticeably hop content (ALL beer used to be that way, years ago), and I like it, in an everyday sort of way. First thing Iíll buy for everyday use when itís on sale (frequently), but last thing Iíd consider when I want some excellent beer - and my ímad moneyí is up to it.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2005 You know, after almost 700 beers, many of them world class, this is not a bad macro, very clean, smooth and quenching.

Get out! What is this doing on this site alongside so many genuine beers? Itís just wrong. Good for getting wasted off - but thatís about it!
