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."

A touch better than the average macroswill in that it does have SOME malt flavor and less rice/sugar/adjunct flavor. Still, itís not very impressive.

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

Aggiebob (179) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Can: Poured into a shaker glass. The color is clear gold with a white head. The grain and grass aroma is followed with a light sweet taste.

Donít let the marketing fool you - Australians generally donít 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. Hadnít even seen it on the shelves here for years and when it returned I was given a six pack of cans for nostalgiaís 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 donít I guess.

OmegaX (1330) - Florida, USA - APR 5, 2015
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.

Lemke10 (867) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2015
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!!

nihtila (1457) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2015
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.
