Very lacking lager. All marketing, no substance.

This has a big cereal taste and usually tastes fairly skunky/peppery. it then fades into a watery finish with a bad sweet aftertaste. the commercials are generally pretty good though. . .

Brewed in England, but that doesnt make the beer drinkable. Hint of malt and metal in the bland aroma. Neutral, bit sweetish taste with hints of metal. No hopbitterness, slight fruitiness. Bland, mass-produced beer.

Ive really given Fosters a good try to impress me, and it cant compare. Plus, its brewed in Canada, which must be Australian for Australia because it surely isnt brewed there. Dissapointing. The oil cans are nifty.

Sweetish malt nose and a typical gold pils color. Weak pils taste – light malt followed by a faint bitterness. Thin body.

sweet hoppy aroma, thin and watery finish. An underaverage lager, only good if there is worse beer like Miller and you really want to make people at the party nicer than they are.

Must be served ice cold, or else it will smell slightly skunky. Ice code, it goes down pretty well -- smooth and refreshing.

This was a nice beer to drink on a day spent sailing, swimming,and lying in the sun. Not spectacular,but I would drink it again given the circumstances.

Well, my sons and I had three brews out in the boat for a great Fourth of July sail on lake Charlevoix. Ill rate them, worst to best, starting with this one. Actually, the only thing good about this beer was that I was drinking it out on a beautiful lake in the sunshine with great company!
