25.4 oz. big oil can, just finished watching Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, so I had a hankering for this,
A: Pours a typical, pale yellow, but the head is really nice initially, and has pretty good retention, a nice, soapy white.
S: Very light, faint, some malt notes.
T: Light malt notes are backed up by a surprising amount of hops for this style of beer, definitely not an IPA or pilsner, but for an American macro lager, it's got a bit of a crisp hop bite.
M: Light and a bit fizzy, I find that the oil can is less carbonated than the bottle, which is a good thing, since when I had Foster's out of the bottle, it felt way over-carbonated, which made it difficult to drink, overall though I found the mouthfeel a bit watery and vapid.
D: Fine, though that big oil can has a lot of beer in it, as much as a wine bottle, 750 mL, so about halfway in, I found myself not drinking any for about 30 minutes, I found it just disinterested me, for an American Macro Lager it's not bad, but compared to some of the better European-style lagers, it just doesn't stand up.

Big ol' fluffy white head with stickage atop a pale golden brew. Looks like a nice glass of beer. No complaints here.
Grassy pilsner malts with a sprite hop presence. Surprisingly, pretty clean. Well-lagered. A slight musty Euro malt note that fades. Not bad.
Pretty clean again. Slight minty hop character that doesn't pair too badly with musty grassiness, slight mineral qualities, and watery grain. Finished gruff and spiny with adjunct sweetness hidden behind a note of fair booze.
Lots and lots of carbonation present. The body is weak, but it's a quenching drink. Booze presence is a little annoying.
Fosters is okay. I would order one when fresh, if left to macro options only.
