A beer to be completely avoided if possible. Which sadly here in the UK isnt. Its in every bar and pub. The aroma is one of watered down-ness, like smelling an open can a day after. Taste is one to behold aswell, it has a thickness to it, often with a large head, that makes it very unenjoyable at the best of times.

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.

(can 1 pint)
Aroma: Light musty.
Appearance: Clear golden color. Long lasting white head.
Taste: Light sweet, light musty, light corny sweet.
Palate: Medium body. Light astringent finish.
Overall: Not bad macro lager.

Can. A gift, sort of. Clear gold. Patchy, white head. Syrupy nose. Some grain. Taste is like beer vomit. It’s drinkable just about. A tick is a tick...

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2016 Well, that?s not great, in fact it?s rather bad but not especially outrageous. Average lager only useful during a warm afternoon, ?cause beside that, this beer is neither pleasant to drink or able to get you drunk. Very basic taste like hundreds of other cheap lagers, and LOL at the "amber nectar" mention, commercial bullshit as usual. Disappointing and I was not expecting much. PARTIALLY APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW!
