Not a lot of difference with the normal Fosters, maybe a bit sweet, but again, boring and uninspiring.

Actually better than its Australian counterpart. Still bad thou. At least not as watery and have some taste (it's corn). Interesting I bought this in Sydney. When it says Melbourne on the can but it's actually Edinburgh… ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CAN. Clear golden, sticky white head. Clean pale malts aroma, pretty nice like a good German Helles. Watery lager body, pale malts, a hint of cardboard, soft body, no hops. Not bad.

this is in no way whatsoever a work of art, but fosters remains a decent lager on tap or in a can (or bottle, if available). as far as bog-standard british pints in the sun goes, you can’t go far wrong with fosters, which i find has a bit more of a malty taste than most of the everyday offerings of the british drinking hole.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2017 What can you say about Fosters? To this day it still remains one of the best selling lagers in the UK, both on draught and in cans\bottles. The aroma is a fairly non-distinct citrus and malt. The taste is sweeter than most lagers with some citrus, floral and grainy corn syrup flavours. I have fond memories of mixing this with Strongbow to make snake bites. This is a mediocre lager, only notable for being sweeter than say Carlsberg or Carling.

Half pint from keg at The Brookhouse. Light, clear lager, good if there is not other lager on offer

a quality lager may still receive a poor score because lagers are difficult to be "special", but this is typical malt water. no aroma, hint of malt in the back end, slightly "soil" taste.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 Decente pale lager. Me sorprendió un poco su aroma a cereal intenso. Posee una apariencia amarillo pálido con una fina corona de espuma blanca. Sabor correcto pero suave (bajo cuerpo) y un paladar a la par.
