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."

Amber beer with a smallish white head. Malty aroma, some hops, but very little. The body is medium and actually quite thick for this kind of beer - by the look I thought it will be more watery. Medium carbonation and a slightly bitter finish - again, hardly any hops. Not too bad on a "sunny beach and hot bbq party", I guess.

Golden with good lacing. Aroma is cardboard and some sweet grain. Over average hop bite in the end. Overall: Not to bad.

Poured pour of the oil can. Crisp tan looking lager color. Has a skunky sweet taste at first. Points for the nostalgic can and gimmick

Cerveza de color amarillo dorado. Sin apenas aroma, sabor suave y sin dejar regusto. Es como tomar un refresco con alcohol.

VincentKabel (197) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
A uninteresting lager. It’s golden, has medium carboantion and it has a clear white foam head. Faint malt and hop aroma and taste, odd sourness. Rather tasteless, it’s not fithy, it’s just nothing at all.

Reimer96 (1197) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Australian swill. Smells off and soury. Tastes off and skunky(not sure how as it’s in a can) and overall is just bad. But it comes in a large can!

Bork (134) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 18, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Almost flavorless, watery beverage, yet sweet and with a bit of body. Drink cold, or it tastes as if filtered through dirty laundry. Poured from beginner shooting target.

Boomersmancave1 (59) - Indiana, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Just an average lager. Pours out golden color. Little to no head. weak grainy smell. taste like desperation and disappointment.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Much-hyped Australian standard lager, not necessarily always brewed in Australia, apparently. Pale golden with thin, snow white foam, bland and thin taste, neutral, but fortunately still some grassy hop bitterishness in the finish - though not enough to save this experience of utter boredom.

With my dinner at outback steak house. Standard light lager with a little sweetness and a touch of no me hop bite at the end. Like an angel crying on your toungue

Transfer from BA review on 10-5-12- Poured from big 750 ml can into pint glass Appearance – Pours a straw colored brew with a huge diffuse white head. The head fades quite fast to leave only the lightest amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma was heaviest of some malty aromas, corn, as well as a lighter caramel smells. Taste – The taste begins of some bready and corn notes. The sweetness intensifies as the taste goes on with a corny and caramel sweetness coming to the tongue. These flavors take the taste to the end, where some flavors of a lightly bitter herbal hop as well as a light biscuit flavors come to the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter to average side with a carbonation level that is average. It is rather appropriate for the style as it makes it easy to drink and on the more refreshing side. Overall –A pretty standard adjunct lager. Rather bland as there is not too much going on in the flavor profile section, but refreshing and easy drinking, making it a decent session.
