"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."

Plowing through rating the CUB products I come across the Australian beer most commonly known across the globe. As most know, though, it is barely drunk here in its homeland. In fact, I canít really recall if I have actually drunk it before, but tasting it I can tell that even if I havenít actually from a bottle or can labelled the same, Iíve sure as shit drunk beer that is exactly the same or so close that the difference is indefinable. Itís a typical Australian pale lager, no hops in the aroma, just a bit of sulphur and some thin adjuncty sweetness. Flavour contains some PoR bitterness, and thankfully not as much saccharine sweetness as its stablemate VB. Mostly inoffensive, and as the palate becomes saturated it becomes even more so. The ideal drink for any lager lout wanting to down a dozen pints without actually tasting anything. Better than expected (at least I could finish it!), but itís still a pretty lame excuse for a beer.

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!!

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

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.
