"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

22 oz can. Pours pale straw with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of sweet malt. Body is light and crisp. Taste is of something I’m not sure what. Finish is short, barely noticeable. Standard macro crap.

Somewhat watery lager. And I thought that it lost even more in the taste when served chilled. Quite boring, and nowadays I rather go with Karjala from my local store even though you get Foster for 1€ as well.

pityu (560) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle - Clear pale yellow colour, small white head. weak malty aromas with some sweetish corn and some weak hops. Taste is quite blank, and a bit too sweetish. Light body, average carbonation, watery mouthfeel and dry finish. Not recommended.

Token bad beer, not much else to say. Worse than every mass produced american lager, by quite a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

En tynd omgang the (eller øl), har lidt smag af humle, men ellers ikke noget der smager af andet end "festival-øl".

Pours a clear golden color with medium white head. Sweet aroma and taste, corny, grainy and slightly malty and grassy. Refreshing.

Hamirubi (547) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2016
Sample draft at Bar Fénis in Fénis, Italy (7 V 2016) - I think it was a 25cl glass. Golden yellow ale with a white collar. Perfect commercialised lager with some sweet touches and bitter features. The malts are round and are on par with the hops. Really refreshing, being a not too watery quencher. Fine pale lager for sure.

25-ounce can in a pilsner glass. A little higher ABV than most typical mass-produced lagers. A little better than Bud-Miller-Coors, but just barely. Can taste the alcohol in it.
