OK, if I am at a bar and they dont have any decent, interesting beer on tap (other than Bass - b/c Bass is my standby) So the bar doesnt have Bass on tap and my choices are like Bud, BudLight, Miller, etc. AND Fosters...I will get the Fosters. So I guess I am saying it is usually the best choice out of a bunch of crappy beers at a typical American bar.

Better than the standard american lager swill but not by much. A little more flavor (light hopps, some malt) but the operative word here is light. Would be good to slam a cold one down after mowing lawn but not good for much else.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2008 Fosters, Australian for ripoff. Not a bad beer, but dont believe the hype.

A touch better than the average macroswill in that it does have SOME malt flavor and less rice/sugar/adjunct flavor. Still, its not very impressive.

agree with smc123, success in marketing than taste, which is watery, bland and with little hoppyness at all

I think this is a waste of my time. Tastes like anything from the big American breweries, but since it comes from Australia some people seem to think its exotic. The can is nice, but then I could just buy a 40oz.

Not too bad actually. Have enjoyed them from time to time. I think the success here is more marketing than taste.
