Ratings are correct below, but I changed some marks above to make the final rating as correct as possible with Beer Advocate's "revamped" system. The 3.28 overall rating is correct.

Type: 25.4-oz. can
Glass: Firestone pint glass
From: Vons in Pacific Beach (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $2.00 (w/ Vons card)
Purchased: Dec. 22, 2014
Consumed: Dec. 22, 2014
Misc.: Best by May 11, 2015

Poured a yellow, pale, clear color with four fingers of rocky white head. Light bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average-to-poor wet foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention all the way down. (Sight - 3.25)

Smelled boozy malts up front. Also honey, Cheerios, cereal, grassy malts, wheat and caramel. Not terrible after the initial whiff for the style. (Smell - 3.38)

Taste was a little rough at first, but got better after a few more gulps. Got cereal, corn, grassy malts, honey wheat, caramel, Corn Flakes and late medicinal notes. (Taste - 3.25)

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, watery finish. (Feel - 3.25)

This was a pretty good beer for the style. I’d have to see where I would rank it, but if would have to be toward the top for all American Adjunct Lager’s. (Overall - 3.25)

Funny when younger I thought this was a premium beer... still OK, but only ice cold, I'll get one with a steak at good ole Outback steakhouse now and then.

Format: a standard 355mL brown bottle with the age-old Foster's macro label.

Appearance: a pale amber yellow colour with decent visible carbonation. A finger of white head hangs about longer than your average lager.

Aroma: not very much in the way of aroma - just a light cereal grains. Not much there.

Taste: very clean and crisp grains and light hops. There is something else there either floral or herbal that adds a little something.

Aftertaste: a tiny bit of bitterness comes through on the finish, and a bit of that sweet grain.

Mouth feel: light in feel with a good amount of carbonation. Hits the thirsty spot perfectly.

Overall: I actually quite like Fosters. It is one of those beers that absolutely hit the spot when it is hot outside, and has just enough to be a bit different to the standard Aussie macro lager. Decent too for around AU$46 a case.
