A beer to be completely avoided if possible. Which sadly here in the UK isnt. Its in every bar and pub. The aroma is one of watered down-ness, like smelling an open can a day after. Taste is one to behold aswell, it has a thickness to it, often with a large head, that makes it very unenjoyable at the best of times.

Cunningham (5154) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2015
Clear golden color with an ok white head. Malty and faint citric aroma. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. A quite mild lager with a dominating mild malty flavor. Faint citric. Thirst quencher.
[Can from a local off license at London Bridge in London, England]

Just too weak and tasteless to be taken seriously weak tasteless tap water. Best drunk: first drink in a beer garden in summer with a lemonade instead of shandy

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?

Simple as it gets with a quite high drinkability, some malty moments, balanced carbo and sweetish background. Nothing special at all.

McTapps (4993) - Ruhrcity, 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.

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
