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."

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.

Not bad, a decent lager with a satisfying darker color than Bud or MGD. A decent beer to drink when your taste buds are shot from drinking better beers.

Pretty good alternative to the American Bud. If you want something a little lighter than most beers it works.

Light in taste, light in body. Big can. Dry finish.

My first choice as a draft beer, and I consider it a treat (Iíll buy one of the large cans for a Saturday afternoon sojourn on my deck....a prelude to an evening ot otherwise undefined beers. Itís a private passion.

If you find yourself in Australia, enjoy. Otherwise, the oilcans are a novelty and this beer is only average.
