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."

I remember that I used to like this beer, but now I can't remember why. Still it has decent taste with an unusual distinct light hoppy taste, although the finish is almost tinny or metallic. Refreshing when ice cold, which I hear is how Australians prefer all their beers. Nice golden appearance, although the aroma strikes me as a kind of "industrial" metallic smell with some bready malt. I do enjoy sporting the obnoxiously large oil cans which also save you the trouble of going back to find a second beer. On a side note, I've heard that this beer is not that popular in Australia, so it's "Australian for beer" tag line may be inauthentic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Boa cerveja, mas que não tem nada demais. É uma cerveja bem comum. Tomei em Londres. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Jonno for this one. Cardboard, grass, alcohol, hone, and melon on the nose. Flavor is sweet cardboard, honey, and corn. Yuck.

Basically the Aussie Budweiser, Coors, or Miller. Aroma is dry grains, cereal. Taste is bland American adjunct beer with low hop bitterness, whether in their ’oil can’, bottle, or on tap. If you like typical American adjunct beers then this is just another one. If you want Australian beer seek out Victoria , Coopers, John Boag’s, Toohey’s. All of them are much, much better brews.

Can. It smells like rubber tire with a nasty tardy aftertaste. To be avoided.

Don’t let the marketing fool you - Australians generally don’t drink this, unless they are super young / new to beer, or buy their beer based on price (even then it is not high on the list), or extremely homesick when travelling abroad. Hadn’t even seen it on the shelves here for years and when it returned I was given a six pack of cans for nostalgia’s sake. Best thing about the beer is the label. Mass produced larger with little or no taste (or a bad taste if served too warm), tastes identical to most other Australian mass produced beers. In fact I often wonder if Fosters and Crown larger are the same product in different packaging so a premium can be charged for Crown.

Pours a straw from a can. Adjunct-y sweet corniness. You either like it or you don’t I guess.

Fosters on draft paired with a nice burger. Not a bad combo. It’s 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.
