"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."

Pours a clear golden color with medium white head. Sweet aroma and taste, corny, grainy and slightly malty and grassy. Refreshing.

Hamirubi (566) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2016
Sample draft at Bar Fénis in Fénis, Italy (7 V 2016) - I think it was a 25cl glass. Golden yellow ale with a white collar. Perfect commercialised lager with some sweet touches and bitter features. The malts are round and are on par with the hops. Really refreshing, being a not too watery quencher. Fine pale lager for sure.

Popoff91 (101) - Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2016
25-ounce can in a pilsner glass. A little higher ABV than most typical mass-produced lagers. A little better than Bud-Miller-Coors, but just barely. Can taste the alcohol in it.

adasko (1884) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 7, 2016
On a plane. Malty aroma. Typical mass produced lager. Rather clean. Looks quite good though. Golden color, clear, nice head for this kind of beer. A bit of nice-looking lacing. No taste, no bitterness, a bit sweet. Watery, not very pleasant. Don’t really like it.

Nurmis (387) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
Can at home. Golden liquid, medium white head. Aroma of odd hops, not good. Some notes of bready malts to go with it. Light sweetness and bitterness. Watery. Bad lager.

BeerRenter76 (831) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 7/6/08.Pours a light yellow, lightly carbonated body with a thin white head. Thin mouthfeel, a little watery. Aroma was slightly malty, taste of malts and aftertaste almost like old white bread. A below average lager.

tightslice (962) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Big boy can from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is slightly metallic, dirty grains. Taste is weak tea water with some tinny bits. Not great.

Strangebrewer (1170) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
750ml can. Poured clear gold with a bleach white head. Heavy malty nose. Light body, average carbonation, crisp finish. Sweet malt flavour, earthy and a bit musty, notes of barley, just enough bitterness.

DylansDad (586) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 6, 2016
Slightly more character than the average generic lager: more grain and slightly more hop content. Quite sweet with apple and pear, but this is mitigated somewhat by the spritzy carbonation. Not bad, but one’s enough.
