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."

KeefOz (1116) - Tarragindi, - JAN 28, 2013
Poured a golden amber colour with a two-to three-finger white foamy head that retained well for a while then collapsed to a thin bubble line. Poor lacing. Moderate to high carbonation. Aroma of malt. Taste initially slightly sweet followed by a very slight bitterness. Light body. Finish short and bland. Aroma, tastes and palate comparable with other large commercial brewery lagers.

Dark yellow with a Small head. Light aroma of water and malt. Ends with some light bitterness that helps it’s separate from bad American macros. It’s pricey for what it is.

njnut (349) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2015
At an amusement park in the oil can. Taste of malt, and a touch of lemon. Aroma of weak malt and little else. This park draws tons of Aussies on vacation and it may have been telling that they had the Fullers

Draught at the Priory Centre, St Neots. Golden yellow, very carbonated. Not quite clear. A bit of malt, a bit of lemon in the aroma. Sweet almost salty taste, short finish. Bit of carbonation makes the texture passable. And passable is the best word to describe the beer.

Teran (163) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUN 25, 2015
Stereotypical lager, high carbonation, everything else is typical. Slightly better from lager beers in EU and America. Lately, it is difficult to find it in Central Europe.

Jabah (198) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Still swill, but probably one of the best of the swills. I never really mind drinking Fosters, especially from an Oil Can. I’d rather cook with it than drink it, but if someone offered me one, I don’t think I’d turn it down. It’s not bad for chain restaurant beer, or if nothing else available.

kajser27 (254) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 24, 2015
Golden colored, clear, weak white head, nice lacing. Aroma is malty some grain, bit of corn and a bit metallic. Taste is malt, grains, some corn, maybe a bit of metal, low to bitterness. Low bodied, medium+ carbonation. There are worse macrolagers out there...

jamaty (1168) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 16, 2015
Millones vendidas en el mundo. Espumosa y clara. Se desvanece en muy poco tiempo. Ligero y mediocre aroma a malta. Escaso cuerpo, simple sabor. Pobre

If nothing else it has a distinctive taste. Shame that taste is pretty damn awful. 2/10.
