"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."

I once had Australian-brewed Fosters. It was better than the current Canadia-brewed version, though in a hard-to-define way (most likely the water). This is mainstream beer, but better than the Miller/Bud stable, bottle or draft. It is saved from being a bit too sweet by the more noticeably hop content (ALL beer used to be that way, years ago), and I like it, in an everyday sort of way. First thing I’ll buy for everyday use when it’s on sale (frequently), but last thing I’d consider when I want some excellent beer - and my ’mad money’ is up to it.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2005 You know, after almost 700 beers, many of them world class, this is not a bad macro, very clean, smooth and quenching.

Get out! What is this doing on this site alongside so many genuine beers? It’s just wrong. Good for getting wasted off - but that’s about it!

The taste isn’t strong, and that disappears instantly. However, an unpleasant aftertaste is left in the palate. In most pubs there will always be better alternatives.

As the croc hunter might say ’Blimy, you gotta watch for them teeth but really shes a beaut’ but with no bite.’

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2003 I finally found this world famous beer somewhere and was eager to drink it last night. But the aroma spoiled it all smelling like cardboard mixed with leather as a shoebox. It's light golden, white frothy head, good lacing. Light, light sweet, very soft, light hop bitter. Very unlike Dutch pilseners (not worse or better however). Short light sweet, light bitter finish. For the details: the one I tasted was brewed by Courage, Edinburgh.

For some reason that I just can’t place, I like this beer...maybe I’m just crazy?

It gets so much publicity overseas as Australia’s top beer, I dont know why when VB is clearly as good.

It is a good warm weather beer. However, if this is the best Australia can do, it is nothing to brag about.
