Okay for quenching the thirst on a hot day - but thats really I can say for its favor.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2015 Re-rating: Its been a while. Pours a clear pale straw with a decent white head that tries to stick around. A nice looking lager. What little aroma there is, isnt offensive: hay, floral, slight basement aromas, and some cooked vegetables. Taste is way off balance. All bitter with some salt. Very little sweetness. Some sour. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Back yard brew.

Unfortunately, people tend to view Fosters as the Australian beer. As an Australian, I find that perception to grossly misrepresent our beer.

Despite the annoying commercials this is not bad. Very average out of the big can or bottle - but try it on tap (if you find a bar that has kegs of it) and its much much better. I guess you can say that about many beers but I experience a profound difference in quality of Fosters off tap vs. store-bought Fosters. A notch above run-of-the-mill brews but not top shelf. Fine!

Better and much lighter than I expected. Not much bitterness, nice clean taste. I agree---a definite improvement over the usual Bud or Miller. In short, Ive had much worse. If I cant find what Im really looking for, this is a good interim choice.

Not bad, a decent lager with a satisfying darker color than Bud or MGD. A decent beer to drink when your taste buds are shot from drinking better beers.

Pretty good alternative to the American Bud. If you want something a little lighter than most beers it works.
