Very skunky and watery with a horrible aftertaste. If you can finish one of these big ole’ cans without throwing up or inducing vomiting, i’ll buy your next one.

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2007 Bottle (Toronto, Canada production). Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), trace hops (flowers), with notes of soap and DMS. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, very unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Not much good to speak of here. Very unpleasant.

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.
