COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filtered and pasteurised. Available with added carbon dioxide in keg, can and bottled formats. First brewed in 1887.

"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."

UPDATED: APR 28, 2004 This beer is an embarrassment! No-one drinks this stuff in Australia, and I mean no-one. They can't sell it here, because it is rubbish, so they have to shift it Overseas to poor unsuspecting foreigners who think this is what Australian beer is all about.

Over-hyped beer. Not even close to being the best Australian beer.

Can’t get over the metallic taste from the can. My friend from Australia calls this ’Australian for shit.’

Rather bland but not terrible. Bitter aftertase the only positive.

The only difference between this and something like Bud, Coors or Miller is that this piece of junk is from another country

Insert ’Fosters...Australian for _______’ joke here. This is another beer that tries to play the foreign role to make Americans feel like they aren’t pansies. All it really does is put us all back in our respective places.
