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."

Australian for mediocre. Cold from the tap, itís passable with dinner. Metallic from the oil can - cheap drink.

This is actually the best beer on tap at the place I like to go for fish fries and, on tap and very cold, is pretty good with a pile of smelt. Otherwise, and especially out of those oil cans, itís pathetic - no body to speak of and a terrible tinny aftertaste.

Overly bitter taste at the end completes this overrated beer. Itís not even brewed in Australia (nor is it drunk there).

Looks fine, tastes alright, but the smell is way too much like urine. Oh, well. Australians are all criminals anyway.

tastes like many other mass-produced lagers. it isnít too bad. A slightly bitter aftertaste with a little ínutí flavor to it. might go well with snacks on a hot summer day. And like Budweiser, the cool advertising far outweighs the actual product

Bland mass-market lager. Slightly better than some other mass-market brews (Bud comes to mind here as the eternal point of reference for swill) but faint hops does not a good beer make. Fosterís appears to be trying to make up for the lack of quality with quantity as the can seems to get bigger every year. No word on when íFosters in an oil drumí will hit the market.

hmm... Tastes a lot like Bud with a bit more of a zest. Decent beer all the same.
