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."

Okay for quenching the thirst on a hot day - but thatís really I can say for its favor.

As far as quality is concerned, this might be one notch above your average american commercial brew. Not worth the effort.

Unfortunately, people tend to view Fosters as ítheí Australian beer. As an Australian, I find that perception to grossly misrepresent our beer.

Despite the annoying commercials this is not bad. Very average out of the big can or bottle - but try it on tap (if you find a bar that has kegs of it) and itís much much better. I guess you can say that about many beers but I experience a profound difference in quality of Fosterís off tap vs. store-bought Fosterís. A notch above run-of-the-mill brews but not top shelf. Fine!

Better and much lighter than I expected. Not much bitterness, nice clean taste. I agree---a definite improvement over the usual Bud or Miller. In short, Iíve had much worse. If I canít find what Iím really looking for, this is a good interim choice.
