Get out! What is this doing on this site alongside so many genuine beers? It's just wrong. Good for getting wasted off - but that's about it! neilrichards (191) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2002
The taste isn't strong, and that disappears instantly. However, an unpleasant aftertaste is left in the palate. In most pubs there will always be better alternatives. themorningzoo (49) - Fairbanks, USA - MAR 15, 2002
As the croc hunter might say 'Blimy, you gotta watch for them teeth but really shes a beaut' but with no bite.' jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2003 I finally found this world famous beer somewhere and was eager to drink it last night. But the aroma spoiled it all smelling like cardboard mixed with leather as a shoebox. It's light golden, white frothy head, good lacing. Light, light sweet, very soft, light hop bitter. Very unlike Dutch pilseners (not worse or better however). Short light sweet, light bitter finish. For the details: the one I tasted was brewed by Courage, Edinburgh. Flatline99 (36) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2002
For some reason that I just can't place, I like this beer...maybe I'm just crazy?

It gets so much publicity overseas as Australia's top beer, I dont know why when VB is clearly as good. Saad (104) - Jacksonville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 13, 2002
It is a good warm weather beer. However, if this is the best Australia can do, it is nothing to brag about. StevieMSU (64) - Kentucky, USA - MAR 12, 2002
decent, but it just doesn't have the tatse I thought it would have..hopefully austrailia has more to offer than this Evster64 (107) - Kempner, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2002

Most appealing about this particular gift from the land down under is the color. A light amber/golden tone sets this beer apart from most UK lagers, which are too dark to drink, let alone stomach. I especially appreciate the malty taste, combined with the light touch of flowery hops within the brew. Much better than a traditional lager, Fosters gives you the flavor of lager without the filling after effects. The aroma leaves a bit to be desired, and yet the beer is remarkably smooth, despite the slightly metallic nose (perhaps it is the oil can). Also interesting was the slightly bitter taste it had. The finish, though a touch bitter, is one that is still quite smooth for a lager. Though not quite as impressive as say a thicker, more full bodied lager in the 'head' department', Fosters is a reasonably priced beer, and one that will make you think twice about picking up a bottle of UL lager!
