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.

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.
