Decent head at first pour but settles very quickly.

Smell: Very light & mild hop aroma. Other than that there is not much to it.

Taste: Very Light bodied but clean and smooth. Slight and I mean a slight hop taste. Not much taste or flavor. Typical lager like Miller or Bud

An okay beer but nothing to write home about. Would pass on it.

Fosters: I was in a small town in Minnesota on business and was trying to go the week without beer, but after a hard day I broke down and did purchase a can of Fosters from the limited singles selection at the only liquor store. Poured into my hotels plastic cup, the Fosters looked like a drug test sample with a fine white foam on top. The aroma was unpleasant, like wet rags. The flavor was a disappointment: there was an overtone of an unnatural chemical like taste followed by an unpleasant bitter aftertaste. There is hardly a beer I do not like, but Fosters did fall into avoid at all cost category.
