3.13/5  rDev +23.7%
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.

Fosters...Australian for piss. They foist this swill off on tourists while they chug the good stuff themselves. Don't let the commercials fool you. Stay far, far, away.
