"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."

Dacrza (580) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Date tasted: July 11, 2013... Glassware: 22oz. pilsner... Occasion: SHARKNADO....Appearance: clear golden orange body with sporadic effervescence; white head is uneven, rocky and thin--as my wife notes, though, the oil can it emanates from is attractive in the holderís hand ... Aroma: metallic corn ping; otherwise, adjunct vapors... Palate: oily smooth body--easy drinking with gassy deposits--ugh... Taste: toasted oats and lager malts make a rather empty dry tasting flavor; could be made in an American macro factory for all we the consumer know... Overall: the can instructs one to play Aussie bocce--this alone says much about the beerís intended patronage and its intentions; befitting Sharknado, this beer goes down smoothly yet predictably, like the Aussie who is gnawed upon only to be sucked away at the filmís end by the impending tornado....I can live with this beer and its "imported" novelty....

Pours a straw from a can. Adjunct-y sweet corniness. You either like it or you donít I guess.

Fosters on draft paired with a nice burger. Not a bad combo. Itís your standard pale lager, easy to drink, lower carb, grassy hops and some grainy malt.

On-tap, this pours a clear golden yellow color with a slight head. The aroma is light with malts and grains. The taste is thin, light, with a decent grain flavor. Easy drinking, perhaps too easy to drink.

Oil can review

Appearance, I donít like it because the oil can gives a bad pour, I spilled it all over everything. But Iíll rate it a tad higher just because. Very nice beautiful color, and a pretty thick foamy short lived head.

Taste. Well, itís pretty good. Pretty smooth. Pretty drinkable. Mostly grain flavors, although I canít tell what they are.

Mouthfeel is medium light. Slightly slick. Smooth, but slightly bitter finish.

Overall. Itís not a bad beer. Itís better than most people rate it. Iíve had it before and itís better than I remember! Cheers, mate!!

18.10.2014. 4.7% version. Pours golden with white head. Aroma and taste have some grain, grass and light malts and hops. Light. Basic.

Been a while since I had a Fosters oil can and will probably be even longer before I have another.

YantarCoast (353) - Moscow, RUSSIA - MAR 25, 2015
330ml can, tried in Kyoto, Japan in early May 2014. Pours gold with a small white head. Malty aroma. Standard thin bodied lager that is drinkable if cold enough. Canít remember if this is better or worse than the UK version.

Faint hoppy aroma present. Clear golden yellow color. Lots of carbonation. Not any flavor to speak about at all. Watery.
