"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."

Light yellow pour. Nose is light malt, hay. Flavor is bland. Very refreshing and crisp but not much going on here.

Draft at Outback....seems appropriate. Looks good in a 23 oz mug. Golden with frothy head and a clean effervescence. Thatís pretty much where it ends. Sweet corn nose, grain and bread. Watery corn, bread, some herbalness, with a grainy aftertaste. Australian for Meh.

Golden with a foamy white head, fades to hardly anything quite quickly. Aroma is floral and malty. Taste is sweet, floral and honey. Some earthiness and malts. Fairly watery. Light body, medium carbonation. As far as mass produced lagers go this isnít the worst but I still wouldnít drink it by choice.

Beer drank from a tall pint glass for the rating. The aroma was a mix of grainy and earthy hops with some barley. It had a light, clear gold color with rising bubbles and a modest, foamy white head with average retention, and light cling and lacing. The taste was a modest bitter grainy hops flavor. It is a fairly thin beer with a somewhat dry mouthfeel and average carbonation.

This is basically Pabst Blue Ribbon in a prettier can. Would not buy again. About what I expected though, sadly. If you want to try this beer, but save money. Drink a PBR and pretend you are drinking a Fosterís. Honestly I think I prefer PBR to this, since PBR is one of my favorite cheap go to beers.

Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small head. Aroma of corn and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew didnít do much for me.

Eye: light gold with no head Nose: malty-veggie aroma, some alcohol Mouth: fizzy, lively carbonated, some alcohol, some malts, watery --- Had to do it, I promised myself to rate some "tasty" lager sometime to remember what eurolager world has to offer.
