"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."

**Re-Rate** My, but my tastes have changed. It’s 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 I’ve seen to date. I haven’t 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 aren’t bad either. This has the ’bite’ 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 “supervision” of Carlton & United Breweries -- the Melbourne, Australia owner of the Foster’s brand name. This is a beer that is marketed as an Australian favorite, but it really isn’t 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 “off” and sticks on your palate with a foamy, alkaloid taste.

The more macho a country, the lamer the beer.

No real flavour or aroma at all. Just a mouthful of bitterness before I swallowed.

It’s drinkable, I suppose. I’d prefer it to a bud any day of the week. A shade of decent hop flavor.

Its Bud with some hops, not hops that are all that good, but at least it can be distiguinshed from water (its not neccesarily beter than water, but you can tell them apart.)

Sigmund (6716) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2003 (330 ml bottle, ABV 4.5%): Light golden colour, large head that doesn't last long. Initial fresh Heineken-like aroma that doesn't linger, bland watery flavour, aftertaste has a little strange and unpleasant bitterness in the end. So boring they could have named it "Neville Chamberlain".
