worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, - OCT 24, 2012
Clear gold with a lasting, creamy white lacy head. Smells of corn, malt, cereal, metal and sulphur. Light thin body with lively carbonation. Lots of adjuncts. Tastes like grass and water, barley and syrup. Not much on flavour or finish. Mostly cardboard water. Its not offensive because there’s nothing here.

Just a nice standard tasty beverage! Very refreshing on a warm day to have it ice cold.

Terrible not good at all. Think its bland and crap. Not very high in percentage. Also no flavor.

Rank disgusting stuff. Fosters should pay people to drink it. I wonder if the stuff they sell in Oz is totally different as I can’t believe that the entire country would drink it as their 1st choice of lager if it tastes as bad as the stuff they sell in the UK?

MichaelAwesome (4606) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Simple as it gets with a quite high drinkability, some malty moments, balanced carbo and sweetish background. Nothing special at all.

McTapps (4606) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a light golden colour with steady big head and medium body. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of mild hops, citrus, grass and a light bitterness. Medium bitter finish. Refreshing, not a bad one.

christhoel (197) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
The best australian lager available at the moment . i find it a good thirst quencher but not to much taste can be drank like pop...lol. a nice amber colour with a carbonated head that sees to hang around . For the price of 24 cans for £10 its not so bad to have in has a fridge filler . A nice average lager

Can from Co-op Wooler. Pours light yellow colour. Tastes of absolutely nothing at all. Fine if ice cold, but other than that not one I can imagine anyone choosing over ANY other beer
