Poured a clear yellow with no head to speak of. Standard for the style. Scents of crystal malt and the usual maize adjuncts. Again, standard, nothing offensive, nothing stand-out. Flavor is sweet, with a bit of sweet malt, a good bit of maize adjunct flavors and a very, very slight hop bitterness. It's a light on complexity, sweet AAL. It's not offensive like some, but it's nothing special. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. Standard. Everything about this beer is standard for an AAL. Nothing offensive, but nothing amazing either. It's a decent warm weather AAL, way better than it's American competition, even if it is brewed in Texas.

Foster's Lager Beer 25 oz oil can $2.29(OH)
25 oz oil can poured into a stemless white wine glass. freshness date clearly marked on bottom of can.
pours almost a straw yellow color. less than two fingers of bright white thin head. giving way to little to no lacing.
it smells very adjunct. i smell cereal grains like corn. a slight grassy pilsner smell and a slight metallic twang. a malty sugary smell also.
the taste is better than the smell, malty at first, kind of grainy like corn, followed by a slight grassy pilsner taste. has a dryness to it, but a bitterness too.
mouth feel is rather light. a metal taste feeling is left over maybe due to the can. rather watery, and not very pleasant. the dryness and bitterness is over powering and a lackluster hops don't help.
overall i wasn't expecting a whole lot here but i was still let down. first off its brewed in GA and TX so its not an import at all. i was expecting a non adjunct premium lager. which i did not get. over priced and in the wrong cooler. (import cooler) should be placed next to other adjuncts not next to real premium imports.just stay away from this one. adjunct and not a real import.
