look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
poured golden-yellow (very light caramel?) with a thick head which has lasted few a through gulps and is leaving some light lacing. carbonation is on the light side, but this is a plus in my book.
scent is grassy with a slight barnyard funk. (faintly reminiscent of horse manure.) no identifiable hops.
taste is pretty one-dimensional. very light malt (a bit corny?) turns grainy pretty quickly, followed by a diffuse non-descript bitterness. (hops? what are those?) it ends in a mixed up bitter / metal way. it's not godawful, but it's not interesting or engaging in any way.
mouthfeel is just OK. it's more astringent than anything else.
continued slurping keeps the metallic bitter aftertaste away; I think I'll need to chase this with some better beer.
I do actually prefer this to Foster's bitter, which seems an increase all the _bad_ aspects of the lager.

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.
