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."

Seemed pretty decent when we used to get the Australian brew. I know that they say nobody drinks it down under though! I guess it’s the Australian Beck’s... However, if that’s the case, all the other Australian lagers I have tried tasted like Foster’s (ie Toohey’s, Castlemaine, Tooth’s etc.) So stop making fun of us Yanks for drinking the stuff! Contract brewing in Canada made it very average. See Harp and Kirin reviews.

Very tasty and not too filling at all. Excellent in an ice cold glass mug.

Favoriate beer of the frenchman in the thanksgiving club, maybe very good on tap, but just another watered down American style macro canned.

I can tell you that as an Aussie, that we’re rather embarrassed that you yanks have made such a big thing about our home brewed bud.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2005 I didn’t like this all that consistently even back before I got introduced to the gourmet stuff. I bought one 6-pack on the assumption that it was my kind of taste, and it never did much for me. Might be the beer of choice when I go to Outback Steakhouse and gulp down an oil-can with a bloomin’ onion. Otherwise, it’s really hard to down a full drink of this stuff.
