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."

Bottle. My Australia friend hates this beer, but I find it to be a simple, relatively clean beer that just has a metallic aftertaste that doesn’t settle well. Not as bad as it’s reputation, but certainly nothing to write home about.

You won’t find Fosters in Australia. This comes as a surprise to a lot of foreigners, especially the English. The reason is: It’s shit!

750 ml can from Biggie Wine & Liquor into a Guinness glass. Clear golden yellow appearance with a diminishing white head. Bland aroma of pale malts, mild grains, light hops and a touch of yeast. Similar flavor, bland and dull, not much going on. Light body with a crisp, carbonated feel and a gross finish. Pretty awful overall, worse than I remember.

La solita pale lager nazionale di esportazione. Birra commerciale e industriale come le colleghe

Peruskalja. Ilkka Lipsanen. Formulakalja, ei muita ansioita. Hyi hyi. Ei täältä enää isoja odotuksia.

"better than most of the american macro crap (almost on par with Coors)...but it’s still macro crap, just australian. don’t fool yourself. not quite as skunky and a little more flavor, but that’s it."

Can as ’Fosters Export’. Drank from can at a social event. Taste is thin, malt-forward, body is medium to light, carbonation medium.

corkyrory66 (663) - BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2014
Pils australien de 5 % abv, prétendu par le brasseur être « the amber nectar ». Nous allons vérifier. Couleur pas du tout ambrée … (ça commence bien!!), mais doré brillant. Clarté nette (comme l’eau... je dis cela par hasard). Bulles grosses et quasi inexistantes. Mousse blanche pétillante, avec un amas central curieux. Arômes de tabac blond, malt pâle, papier à cigarette, un rien de houblon. 1ère bouche douce sur le malt pâle, houblon et un sucre caramel. Arrière-bouche faible mais pas désagréable. 2ème douce toujours, et les saveurs, bien que très faibles sont bien fondues. 3ème très légère, mais douce et acceptable. Arrière-bouche quasi inexistante (il ne faut pas trop demander...). La longueur est plus proche de l’eau que de la bière. Alcool banal et inefficient. Finale plate. CONCLUSION : « amber nectar » dixit le kangourou, sauf que pas amber et pas nectar. Morale de l’histoire : ne vous déplacer pas en Australie pour la bière uniquement ...

This beer was a complete disappointment for me. It would have been very drinkable except for the vile aftertaste that I just couldn’t get past. Will not buy again... Kinda regret purchasing.

På fat på pub i london. Grei lager uten noen smaker som utmerker seg. Gjør seg bra med premier league på storskjerm.

That’s the only commercial beer from Australia that you can get without problems in Poland. But i think not many people drink it.
