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."

Typical golden swill appearance with white head. Skunky grassy aroma, not so much skunk on the taste, but the grain/grass is there. Not a favorite.

"better than most of the american macro crap (almost on par with Coors)...but it’s still macro crap, just australian. don’t fool yourself. not quite as skunky and a little more flavor, but that’s it."

Can as ’Fosters Export’. Drank from can at a social event. Taste is thin, malt-forward, body is medium to light, carbonation medium.

corkyrory66 (636) - BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2014
Pils australien de 5 % abv, prétendu par le brasseur être « the amber nectar ». Nous allons vérifier. Couleur pas du tout ambrée … (ça commence bien!!), mais doré brillant. Clarté nette (comme l’eau... je dis cela par hasard). Bulles grosses et quasi inexistantes. Mousse blanche pétillante, avec un amas central curieux. Arômes de tabac blond, malt pâle, papier à cigarette, un rien de houblon. 1ère bouche douce sur le malt pâle, houblon et un sucre caramel. Arrière-bouche faible mais pas désagréable. 2ème douce toujours, et les saveurs, bien que très faibles sont bien fondues. 3ème très légère, mais douce et acceptable. Arrière-bouche quasi inexistante (il ne faut pas trop demander...). La longueur est plus proche de l’eau que de la bière. Alcool banal et inefficient. Finale plate. CONCLUSION : « amber nectar » dixit le kangourou, sauf que pas amber et pas nectar. Morale de l’histoire : ne vous déplacer pas en Australie pour la bière uniquement ...

This beer was a complete disappointment for me. It would have been very drinkable except for the vile aftertaste that I just couldn’t get past. Will not buy again... Kinda regret purchasing.

På fat på pub i london. Grei lager uten noen smaker som utmerker seg. Gjør seg bra med premier league på storskjerm.

That’s the only commercial beer from Australia that you can get without problems in Poland. But i think not many people drink it.

25.4 oz oil can from Food Lion in Brentwood Center, Wilson. Dehydrated piss yellow hue, good clarity with mostly diminishing white fizzy head. Ok lacing. Aroma of grain, skunk and light malt. Skunky taste up front with a watery grain finish. It was fun while it lasted, but I will not buy again.

Pindoc (103) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Der weisse Schaum sitzt kompackt und fest auf dem klaren goldgelben Bier. Kein besonderer Duft steigt in die Nase. Der erste Schluck fliesst halb bitter, halb süss die Kehle hinunter. Leider kommt bald ein metallischer Gou auf und schmälert das Trinkvergnügen. Abgang und Nachhall sind leichtbitter. Nur trinken wenn du richtig durstig bist und kein anderes Bier in Reichweite ist!

Just refreshing lager. Good to watch the Mad Max Trilogy and the upcoming Fury Road. Also, to listen to Men at Work! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden with good lacing. Aroma is cardboard and some sweet grain. Over average hop bite in the end. Overall: Not to bad.
