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 thought Foster’s was Australian. The "oil can" I consumed was brewed in and imported from Canuckistan. Sonofa....this is MOLSON. I knew I tasted a beaver. Effing Canuck piss beer masquerading as Australian piss beer. Goddammit, I want my money back, Canuck communist ratstards.

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.

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 (148) - 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.

Can. Typical macro aroma, adjuncts, dirt. Vlean yellow to golden colour. No head. Taste is bad, strongly astringent, really bad. Hardly even drinkable.

I’ve had this more than enough times. I suppose I’m to say something on this. Okay, well here goes. I’ve had this more than enough times in pint glasses and pilseners. The appearance was a decent golden yet transparent yellow color with a fast rising carbonation filling a less than a half fingered white foamy fizzling head. The lacing well, its not really there. The smell, uh...okay, I guess, its actually fairly skunky every time I’ve had it. Its always off and I’m pretty sure I’ve had this at least twenty times in my life. The taste is well, bitter, but more for the sake of just being bitter and not necessarily for the fact that its the hops making it that way. On the palate, well, it strikes my mouth and tongue into a submission that’s not worthy of wanting to come back to. Bitter, oh hell yeah, this is, more than bitter, but not a good bitter. Overall, I’m thinking this stuff defines "swill" at its finest. I’m glad to get this one off my chest and most likely never have this ever again. This isn’t even a pale lager.
