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."

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 Oil can: Pours a clear yellow with a diminishing white head, sweet grains in the aroma with a hint of grass, thin bodied with prickly carbonation, starts ends ends barely bitter. Not as bad as I remembered.

The best way to drink Fosters is in the huge can. It makes you feel like a little kid drinkin such a big can but its a good smooth brew, not the kangaroo piss i expected it to be.

Don’t drink the Aussie version. Get the stuff brewed in the UK. Totally different taste Rumour has it that it’s also a different Beer (Crown Premium) over there, just re-badged cause the Pomms ain’t stupid enough to drink the real stuff. On Tap in the UK, it’s an easy beer to drink when you wanna have a rest from the real stuff and need to slow down before you fall down. In any form in Aus..don’t touch it. Use the full bottles for target practice (alongside VB).

Very good beer for easy drinking. A good American Standard.

One of the standard ’fun’ imports. The large can, coupled with found memories from the Gulf, make this a standard in my book.

It’s gotta be in that huge motor-oil looking can! Somehow it taste better that way, the bottles are okay, but the can is it!

I don’t like the aroma, but the color and carbonation are nice. Taste, well...what taste?
