I thought it was funny that I picked this up out of the Stop and Shop in Woodbury NY because I had just talked about knocking back an oil can or two "back in the day" with a friend. The big can always made an impression upon young minds who were worshipping Molson and Moosehead at the time (early 80's). It was also entertaining to know Molson was brewing Foster's under contract for most of the US.
I poured the big can into a tall glass and watched as it made a large foamy head with a pale yellow existence below it. It didn't smell like anything I have been spoiled with recently, courtesy of the BA, this year, so the next stop was a taste.
The first impression was not good as an odd smokey flavor emerged and then disappeared with the light lager taste which resembled Molson on a bad day.
The beer cleared up a little and drank easily, but then the smokey flavor came back later. That was strange for me and I hoped this would be better on tap.

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.
