Funny when younger I thought this was a premium beer... still OK, but only ice cold, I'll get one with a steak at good ole Outback steakhouse now and then.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Format: a standard 355mL brown bottle with the age-old Foster's macro label.

Appearance: a pale amber yellow colour with decent visible carbonation. A finger of white head hangs about longer than your average lager.

Aroma: not very much in the way of aroma - just a light cereal grains. Not much there.

Taste: very clean and crisp grains and light hops. There is something else there either floral or herbal that adds a little something.

Aftertaste: a tiny bit of bitterness comes through on the finish, and a bit of that sweet grain.

Mouth feel: light in feel with a good amount of carbonation. Hits the thirsty spot perfectly.

Overall: I actually quite like Fosters. It is one of those beers that absolutely hit the spot when it is hot outside, and has just enough to be a bit different to the standard Aussie macro lager. Decent too for around AU$46 a case.
