3.13/5 rDev +22.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 25.4 oz can with no description of the beer and no freshness date.
Appearance: Pale sunny clear golden colour, good frothing of a white head when first poured. Yields a rocky and slowly dissipating two fingered head that soon enough is virtually gone.
Smell: Hint of malted grain, traces of cooked veggies and husky undertones make up the aroma which is relatively clean.
Taste: Crisp and grainy with a slightly refreshing smoothness. Light to moderate body. Sweet grain leans towards husky with light biscuity and powdery flavours. Even hop bitterness that couples well with the fresh graininess. Vague astringent flavours are mild and hard to trace back to their grain and hop origins. Husky finish that gradually dries.
Notes: A pretty drinkable lager, nothing to go “beer crazy” over. A good beer to wash down a working man’s meat and potatoes meal.

It looks and smells like an aright lager, but one taste from its oil can container and it becomes this beergod awful beverage from down under (hell?). Sure the adverts in the US are funny, but it hardly helps to mask its hard to swallow taste. Thanks, but I'll pass on this one.

Foster's Lager Beer 25 oz oil can $2.29(OH)
25 oz oil can poured into a stemless white wine glass. freshness date clearly marked on bottom of can.
pours almost a straw yellow color. less than two fingers of bright white thin head. giving way to little to no lacing.
it smells very adjunct. i smell cereal grains like corn. a slight grassy pilsner smell and a slight metallic twang. a malty sugary smell also.
the taste is better than the smell, malty at first, kind of grainy like corn, followed by a slight grassy pilsner taste. has a dryness to it, but a bitterness too.
mouth feel is rather light. a metal taste feeling is left over maybe due to the can. rather watery, and not very pleasant. the dryness and bitterness is over powering and a lackluster hops don't help.
overall i wasn't expecting a whole lot here but i was still let down. first off its brewed in GA and TX so its not an import at all. i was expecting a non adjunct premium lager. which i did not get. over priced and in the wrong cooler. (import cooler) should be placed next to other adjuncts not next to real premium imports.just stay away from this one. adjunct and not a real import.

2.59/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5
Poured a typical adjunct lager color of straw yellow and a crystal clearness. The head was a short lived group of hyper ascending bubbles that dissipated immediately.
This smell of a corn malt and barley with some Pilsner cereal grains.
This has a tinny, twangy barley flavor, some obvious corn malts and a tinge of bitter hops. No quite assertive enough it seems built as a thirst quencher an not suited to taste.
The feel is ultra crisp with a real throat burning bite from all the carbonation. That said it is really light and drinks very clean.
Fosters was always one of my favorites but under the lens of beer snobbery I have to admit that it's just not that good.
