This was shockingly bad. I had never tried Foster's before and was surprised to see it on tap last night at a bar in my area, so I figured what the hell.
Appearance: bright golden in colour with a half inch of bubbly white head that fades away quickly. Small amount of lacing.
Smell: a strong mixture of malt, corn, and fruit that amounts to a tangy sort of pissy smell. Not good.
Taste: terrible. A bittersweet malt flavour turns into a dry, corny aftertaste that lingers around for a while. This was tough to get through.
Mouthfeel: annoying. The beer has a strong initial bite and the malt-corn aftertaste doesn't go away. Basically all you're thinking about while drinking this is what beer you'll be ordering next.
Drinkability: I got through it. That's an accomplishment. Avoid this beer at all costs.
Serving type: on-tap

2.59/5 rDev +2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Poured from a 12oz bottle
Appearance: Light golden, clear wheat in color, clean white head that holds well, fair lacing, good carbonation
Smell: Nothing real exciting or strong, but malty grains and slight fruit show up if you try hard enough
Taste: Flavor is on the light side, slight hints of malts, earthy fruit, very light hops
Feel: Fresh, lively carbonation, surprisingly heavier than expected
Overall: Not much to stand out from most cheap lagers
Not completely unimpressed, but I don't plan on buying any soon. A decent recommendation for a session beer or summer post-chore refreshment, however.
Serving type: bottle
