"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 (39411) - 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 (33771) - 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.

(Bottle 33 cl) Hmm, donít know really where to put this. Itís 5% ABV, but the label clearly states, that itís 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 itís simply too thin to gather much interest. Cafť fodder...but always to be preferred to Bud. 120501

omhper (22883) - TyresŲ, 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 doesnít.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2009 Bottle, 4.5% ABV. Straw in color with a decent white head. Aroma is initially quite malty, then some vomit-like scents come through. Some hops too. Extremely thin beer with only hints of flavors. Some corn-like flavors and some fruityness way back. It even has a hint of after-taste. After sampling this one, I can surely understand why the Aussies say they export it so they donít have to drink it themselves. Normally I donít give a 2 on flavor unless the flavor is unpleasant, which the flavor of this beer isnít, but it just isnít there. Almost amazingly bland. And hey, it actually left lacings! Rating: 2-2-2-1-3-1.0. 060404.

Bottle, 5% ABV. Thought Iíd give this one a second opinion since I got one for free, and my first rating was much lower than average. Itís still a yellow to golden beer, clear, and topped by a small, lace-leaving white head. The aroma is uninteresting and almost absent. Hints of grains and tropical fruits, and a slightly sickening sweetness. Sweet, papery, thin and fizzy on the palate, with the same tropical fruits and sicking sweetness found on the nose. Bitterness? Nope! As I said in my former rating, this beer is so bland it deserves my low rating even though I would normally have it at 1.5 or so. Draingpour, yuck! Didnít manage to finish the glass. 091122
