There is NO rule six. I really enjoy the oil cans of fosters lager. Kinda hard to find where I live.

Good lager. Very smooth and refreshing. Enjoyable on a hot summer day. After mowing the grass. Got this in the 12 pack of 12oz cans and the big oil can. Cheers.

Review: 500ml Can of Fosters: ABV: 5% vol 

Coming with the big fuck off blue can with the iconic "F" logo, "The amber nectar" or so they say, with a kangaroo hopping around the place as well, yep its Fosters alright.

Have to say poured cold from the fridge, it came out looking fantastic into the glass, a nice white frothy head, lovely clear golden colour, was surprised at how well it looked. Head does die a death but heh its a cheap lager. Top marks for appearance.

If I was surprised about the look, then I was shocked with the smell. There was none, NONE! Completely odorless. Pretty neat trick I think.

On the taste side of things, well there are not much flavours or stand out tastes with this beer, but its very drinkable. It is extremely smooth, and very easy to quaff, with very light tastes of malts and only a slight hoppy bitter kick to it, mostly very clean and manageable. Not sure you are going to get too smashed downing these as the alcohol is very well hidden, but that's fine if you just want to sit on the sofa and watch the footy on the box, a good beer to while away a few hours. 

It does the job, it is a good lager to drink and enjoy. I enjoyed it, I always do. 
Always decent to down. Fosters is just a very easy quaffable beer, inoffensive and very refreshing to drink, and it is what it is, a decent cheap lager. Simple. 

As they say on their own marketing spiel, "Foster's lager is a full bodied beer with excellent drinkability." perhaps not full bodied but 100% drinkable.

Appearance is good, clear yellow with a foamy head for a larger--lasts only 30 seconds.
Stale corn smell and yeast.
Taste is the same as the smell just a little worse.
It has a richer mouth feel then most ALs.
I used to drink this often back before the craft beer movement, thank you craft beer movement.

It comes in a really cool 25.4 oz can. The original oil can. If you do not worry about the pour or the smell it will be all right. Drink out of the glorious can, really chilled. Slightly bitter on the first sip, taste the corn and perhaps some malt. Finish with a little bit of sweetness. You can do a whole lot worse. I always have a can of Fosters put away for the right time.

Meh. Typical mass production beer. Of those that are mass produced, this one taste half way decent. Most mass production beer taste like camel piss, or at least what I'd imagine what that'd taste like. Crisp and satisfying in an emergency.

What you expect it to be - adjuncty, lots of corn water flavor, but mostly just mediocre, bland beer meant to be guzzled on a hot day or at an Outback steak I.e not something to get passionate about either way

Look: Bright, perfectly clear yellow with a little bit of white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Corn, yeast, and that's about it. Tiny bit of citrus.

Taste: The corn is strong with this one. Much like Budweiser and similar adjunct lagers, a very generic "grain" flavor. Bready with no bitterness whatsoever.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated water. Maybe a tiny bit thicker.

Overall: While not disgusting (at least when cold), incredibly one-note and boring.

25.4oz oilcan poured into 12oz tulip. Poured a bright, clean, clear yellow with 1/4 inch of white head that had minimal retention and lacing.

The aroma was bland, other than some very light grain, nothing noticeable.

The grain was a wee touch bolder on the tongue, and some light hops were also noticeable.

The body was the expected thin of the style, and had a semi-sweet finish.

Drinkability was OK, for what this beer is. Overall, a fairly average, or slightly below, example of the style.

Drank from 750 mL "oil drum" can. Ratings are done based on this style of beer.

Look - The almost comically large can looks great and is surprisingly comfortable to hold. The simplicity of the blue background with red F is perfect. A few too many words crammed into small spaces make certain areas of the can look crowded however.

Smell - Neutral with smatterings of a vague sweetness. Nothing really pops out.

Taste - Little malt, lots of adjunct. Metallic tinge on the aftertaste, most likely from the can.

Feel - Thin with an appropriately strong carbonation.

Overall - Good enough of a beer. Doesn't do anything new or exciting, but checks all the boxes you'd want from something in the style.
