Alright I suppose. It canít be too bad if itís the sponsor of the Canadian National Rugby Team.

Local Fosters tastes good, but Iíve had some imported stuff, (I suppose re-imported in my case) that tastes flat, crappy,. At best, like roasted peanuts in liquid honey and bubbly head. Serve at 4ļ. Best drunk in Melbourne on a cloudy Saturday, short glasses

Complete and utter crap - especially the North American mix.

Me thinks the big beer connoisseurs have had their taste buds burnt by ethyl alcohol brews: put a Bud next to a Fosters and taste íem. No comparison. Sure, Fosters aint no Westvleteren, but it is good for its intended purpose: a thirst-quenching, simple lager beer-- especially as an alternative to the really bad American macros. Not nearly as much watery, cheap adjunct aftertaste as the American macros. Golden and smooth; predictable but refreshing none the less. On tap, Fosterís offers an excellent meringue-like head. Not a bad beer at all, when you are actually in the mood for session beer.

Australian for pig swill. Otherwise, another mass produced high cost alternative to bottled water.

Fosterís...Canadian for rip-off. If they put 1/10th the effort of the marketing into the brewing, this might be a great beer. Unfortunately, itís not, and its reputation is unwarranted. It wasnít dark enough and didnít really boast a good taste. Drinkable, but falls into the same category as Corona...EXTREMELY overpriced. Wait, scratch that; Iím sure its cost is warranted, what with all the advertising. So let me put it a different way: not WORTH the price.
