"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 had ’some’ drafts of the Fosters that is now brewed in Canada and they were smooth. I’ll go back and have some more.

Fortunately this isn’t really a true Aussie Beer because they are even worse. The chemicals used to purify Aussie water give them a metallic taste. This however, doesn’t carry the same trait; it has no taste at all. Beer flavored water. Cool Cans! Get’s high ratings by all the publicity it gets ’Fosters, Australian for Wombat Piss’

Not a great beer, but good on tap while eating a blooming onion!

Inoffensive rather than poor. Just too much on the bland side

Another generic lager. Pit it against a dozen other big domestic and ’imported’ beers and I’d challenge you to tell the difference in a blind taste test. All bottles, cans and kegs of this brand are brewed and bottled in CANADA. They picked Canada so it can still say ’Imported’ on the label. If you think you’re getting an ’Australian’ beer you are getting it in name only. The beer itself is brewed by Molson or Labatts or another one of those behemoth breweries in Canada, I forget which. Fosters, it’s Canadian for beer mate.

Overall, a good beer, especially off tap. Not too heavy, but with some bite and finish.

A fair taste just a little strong on the after taste.

doesn’t have the greatest taste but if your goal is to get drunk fast, this is a good pick

Another beer i wish could be graded differently in different forms. Fosters in bottles is a great crisp brew with a bit of flavor. Fosters in a can is tinny, and warms too easily. (I liked the old steel oilcans better, screw the ecology, bring ’em back)
