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."

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.

Typical standard lager along the lines of Bud, but with a bit more of a kick in taste. Serves its purpose the same as Bud too, for mass-quantity consumption.

Australian for SHIT.

’Foster’s: Australian for Croc-piss.’ This standard lager tastes like you are eating the can along with it. It has an unusually bitter aftertaste and leaves a disturbing feeling in your stomach after a few. Not worth the hype.

unimpressive, basically an american macro, at an import price, definetely not worth the money.

For an aussie beer, I’ll take XXXX because it doesn’t ahve that metallic bite that fosters has (out of the tap or not).

Got the bottle instead of the oilcan and am glad I did. Those oilcans always get warm before I’m done with ’em! This is a very ordinary American Standard, but with a weird Aussie taste-twist that I can’t pin down. Not all that great.
