According to the can the provenence of the beer is Heineken UK in Edinburgh. 4% alcohol.

500ml can poured into a straight pint glass. Looks pretty good, crystal clear straw coloured liquid with a nice pure white head with decent retention, leaving streaky suds rather than lacing down the side. Medium carbonation.

Smells distinctly unpleasant. Something undefined but faintly medicinal and vegetal, also a sweet graininess.

First impression when tasted is of water, some biscuity maltiness, a little crackery. Some saccharine sweetness and seltzer from the carbonation. There is a metallic note on the back of the throat, something almost chemically bitter. Aftertaste is a sweet and cloying breadiness despite the apparent lightness when first imbibed. Overall really unpleasant.

Fosters in the UK is viewed as just another characterless corporate pale lager, brewed cheaply with no regard to quality. It definitely lives up to the hype. There are many beers I would rate as average that are far superior to this.
