Haven't done a trash beer review in a while...

Appearance: Crystal clear pale golden color with no visible effervescence and a thin film of soapy white head. Surprisingly a little lacing.

Aroma: Really not much there. A tiny bit of grain with a large amount of flaked corn. A little dusty smelling as well.

Taste: Very plain flavor (if you can call it that). Just a hint of corn with about 10 IBUs of bitterness from some uneventful grassy hop character. Usually I get a metallic flavor as well with this beer but this one must have been a really fresh can because it is actually quite a clean palate. Finish is nice and crisp with virtually no aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Thin but not quite water. Lots of microscopic carbonation rips up the palate a bit. Very easy drinking by design.

Final Thoughts: While better than its American counterparts (although I think this 'import' is actually brewed in TX) Foster's Lager is just plain bland. There's nothing bad about it's flavor, but there's really nothing good either. Would I drink it again? I want to say no, but I'll probably have it again at some point.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

From the infamous oil can. Brewed in Fort Worth Texas. Best by date Dec 1. 2014. So quite fresh.
Pours clear gold with two fingers of long lived white head. Lacings were spectacular and some head remained to the bottom of the nonic pint glass.
Smell was mostly white bread. Some herbal or grassy hops also.
Taste is mostly malts white bread or biscuit. The hops are mostly noticed in the dry finish.
Mouthfeel is good. Carbonation is bold and the body is light to medium.
Overall a suprisingly good beer for the style. Served as cold as possible. As the beer warmed it still tasted alright with no off tastes.
