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."

Pours a light golden color. Smell is mild, some corn, malts. Taste is crisp, grains, malts, some corn, a slight bitterness at the finish. Overall an easy drinking and refreshing beer.

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

aleksander9 (435) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Golden with good lacing. Aroma is cardboard and some sweet grain. Over average hop bite in the end. Overall: Not to bad.

BrewBoxer (2005) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Poured pour of the oil can. Crisp tan looking lager color. Has a skunky sweet taste at first. Points for the nostalgic can and gimmick

sisito (13) - SPAIN - AUG 23, 2014
Cerveza de color amarillo dorado. Sin apenas aroma, sabor suave y sin dejar regusto. Es como tomar un refresco con alcohol.

VincentKabel (204) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
A uninteresting lager. It’s golden, has medium carboantion and it has a clear white foam head. Faint malt and hop aroma and taste, odd sourness. Rather tasteless, it’s not fithy, it’s just nothing at all.

Reimer96 (1222) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Australian swill. Smells off and soury. Tastes off and skunky(not sure how as it’s in a can) and overall is just bad. But it comes in a large can!

Bork (172) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 18, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Almost flavorless, watery beverage, yet sweet and with a bit of body. Drink cold, or it tastes as if filtered through dirty laundry. Poured from beginner shooting target.

Just an average lager. Pours out golden color. Little to no head. weak grainy smell. taste like desperation and disappointment.
