As an american just seeing fosters is interesting as I never see it and wanted to try it. As anything imported or even brewed to the same specifications of an australian company is quite rare. I found a single 24 fl. oz. can for under 3 dollars and tried it. It was neither revolting nor out of this world fantastic. It was a very fair deal however. Alot of beer for the money. But very run of the mill for a budget brand lager when it comes to taste and feel in my opinion. A tad stronger than an american style lager but by very little.

Drinkable adjunct. Corn smell. Good thirst slaker. Top of the line for the category.

When I was a kid and didn't know shit from shineola, this tasted better than Budweiser. Now, having spent the better part of my youth in Giessen Germany, I now know that Fosters is a bit of both. Undrinkable, rather drink a Miller Lite, than this.

This is my shit.

Delicious

A Donald H u g e Trump Oil Can. Used to get one after work from working all day at Acura in the Texas heat. Telling you this thing does the job well. I'm a lightweight so 2 cans will have my on my rocker for sure I think it taste great has a subtle smell nothing overbearing at all. Also the price point? Cmon you buy one and you're buzzing real nice with zero complaints.

25 oz Can into a glass If you didn't know, Foster's is brewed in the US
Looks rather bland - straw colored with moderate carbonation, medium foam head leaves fairly quick. Lacing is average.
Smells like similar American Lagers for the most part..yeast, bread, musty grains.
Taste is along those lines, picking up mostly bread, some malt but not much, some back end bitterness from hops. Very drinkable beer but most American macro's are drinkable so...doesn't stand out much. I much prefer Foster's Premium Ale.
Only slightly above average so i give this beer a grade of C+

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.
