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."

Can & Tap. Golden colour with a small white head. Ordinary commercial lager without much of malts and hops. Boring taste and aroma.

yespr (40417) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2007
50 cL can. Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Very grainy and dusty aroma. Light bodied. Sweet flavoured, minor cardboard note and quite watery. Some bitterness in a dry and water finish. Bland.

Ungstrup (34308) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2003
A dark yellow beer with a small and fast disappearing head. The aroma is very slight with notes of malt. The flavor is slightly malty and ending on a very slight bitterness. A well balanced pilsener - but nothing special - and as an import it is way too expensive compared to what you get.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Hmm, don’t know really where to put this. It’s 5% ABV, but the label clearly states, that it’s brewed in the UK by Scottish Courage.
Neat pilsener golden with a decent head. Light-bodied with a slight touch of alcohol in the finish. Actually quite fruity and fresh, but it’s simply too thin to gather much interest. Café fodder...but always to be preferred to Bud. 120501

omhper (23426) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2006
[Canned] Fizzy pale yellow without head. Some vegetables up frony, then water, corn and fizz. No substance, not bitterness. Typical mega-indistrial swill.

Well, I gave this one higher than average marks only because the giant oil can does make an impression on you. Too bad the beer doesn’t.

Koelschtrinker (17283) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Die Zutatenliste kann einem die Vorfreude schon sehr verderben. Mais-Sirup, naja vielleicht das noch, aber Antioxidationsmittel? Ne, muss nich sein. Das Bier schmeckt wirklich wie Massenbier, bloß nicht zu viel eigenes Aroma, damit es auch ja jedem schmeckt. Vorne und hinten ein wenig hopfig, zwischendurch eine sehr leichte Herbe. Kann man Kästenweise trinken, keine Frage, aber das ist ja nicht unbedingt immer der Sinn der Sache. Test vom 29.1.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,8,14,7,6,9 - 8,85
