Filtered and pasteurised. Available with added carbon dioxide in keg, can and bottled formats. First brewed in 1887.

"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

Calisky (533) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 16, 2014
Couleur jaune claire, petite mousse blanche. Assez décevante, nez très leger (malt?). Très aqueuse, sans gout particulier. Malgrés tout rafraichissante.

While in Med cruise 2014. Can to a pint. Clear light gold with some white head and bubbles. Easy to drink, good thirst quencher... Aussie version of macro lager.

25 FL OZ ($2.49) just a average lager beer, nothing special and surely not the beer of australia, in fact i believe bud or coors is there beer of choice lol funny. lager in general is crap and if you’re purchasing lager you’re most likely not looking for anything other that getting drunk. tastes similar to the can it pours from. pass this as you might as well get a cobra or OE if this is a choice.

A very light plain and simple lager beer. refreshing for a hot summer day, but not much more than that...

Foster’s, Australian for cheap American macro lager beer. It has a light golden yellow or straw color that is very bright and clear. Tiny bubbles flow up the sides of the glass to form a big, light and foamy white head that leaves behind some lace. The aroma is quite strong with light grains and a salty mineral scent. The flavor is very average and plain. It is fairly sweet and grainy in flavor with some light hop presence in the finish and a salty aftertaste. Its body is light and its texture is thin with an average carbonation that makes it easy to gulp down.

massingasetta (169) - München, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
Farbe sehr gut, Geruch ist dünn und wenig würzig, Schaumkrone ist nicht sonderlich Europäisch um es diplomatisch auszudrücken. Antrunk ist frisch und erfüllend. Ein gutes Trinkbier ohne sonderlich viel Würze, im Körper schmeckt man dann leichte Feinwürze und mit viel Fantasie Fruchtnoten. Das Bier wirkt leicht und frisch, hat dennoch ca. 5%. In der Tradition von Bieren wie Becks und Heineken oder die UK-Version von Löwenbrau, ist dieses Bier super süffig. Wenn man dieses Bier trinkt übernimmt man automatisch ein wenig das chillige Leben eine Australiers an!

helder goud/geel met smalle witte kraag. aroma komt licht hoppig over met wat mouten. smaken zijn overall erg licht en niet zo bijzonder, het is allemaal wel te drinken maar bijzonder is het niet.
