"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."

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.

**Re-Rate** My, but my tastes have changed. Itís nice to come back to an old favorite after a while though. This brew pours a clear light gold with a massive creamy white head that has some of the best lacing Iíve seen to date. I havenít seen big hunks of foam sticking to the sides of my glass since I sampled a Bass. The light piney, soapy, doughy nose is clean with some fruity perfume accents. The flavor is light also with a fruity middle and an average nutty finish. The watery palate is smooth but weak with a metallic mouthfeel to the finish. Very good for an American Standard. *Original Rating 2/24/02* I love this beer on tap. The depth charges arenít bad either. This has the íbiteí that I like in a beer. Very smooth and crisp.

If you buy this beer in America, chances are that it is not from Australia. Rather, it probably was brewed and imported from Canada, where is it produced by FBG Breweries in Toronto, under the ďsupervisionĒ of Carlton & United Breweries -- the Melbourne, Australia owner of the Fosterís brand name. This is a beer that is marketed as an Australian favorite, but it really isnít that... it is just the most well-recognized of Australian beers. This beer is a medium-bodied lager with a honey-amber color, medium levels of carbonation and a moderately thick head. This beer has an oily, hoppy aroma and it has a finish that is slightly ďoffĒ and sticks on your palate with a foamy, alkaloid taste.
