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."

I have very netural feelings about this beer. Thereís nothing really bad about it and nothing really outstanding either. I can live without it, but if one of those monster cans(the real selling point I thinkis handed to me, I would not kick it out of bed, as they say.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2004 Its really funny how the majority of pubs in London have this shit, noone drinks it in Oz (we drink even worse stuff in Australia, VB). In all truth, this isn't much better than Budweiser, might have a touch more flavour, but it still has no flavour.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 Fosters is othe only beer that I know that tastes the same flat or not. Itís weird I can drink it the day after as long as it has been refridgerated.

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.
