This Australian lager is a pale-straw yellow. The head is huge, fluffy, and white. A nice lace does form and cling to the glass.
Sweet notes of grain linger through, with a tiny, astringent bite in the finish. Nothing to get excited about, although thirst quenching. This drink lacks in body and the mouthfeel is...well, not much to speak of. The taste is mild and not the least bit offensive. A very safe beer.
When I read the definition of what an Australasian lager is suppose to entail, Foster's encompasses many of the features. So, I must give it credit where due. I wish there was a way to evaluate the beer's "form or stylistic interpretation" -- I would rate this factor very high.
I would be willing to try this drink on tap sometime to contrast the difference with the canned product. I'm not a huge fan of the style but do give it approval if you like this sort of thing.

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.
