I love this beer. The only reason I don't drink it more often is that it is only available in the oil cans around here. Tastes and smells just like "beer" to me.

Reviewing Foster's Lager. Poured out of a 750ml can. Let's begin.

Appearance - A large, foamy head. Standard yellow. It appears highly carbonated.

Smell - Immediate grainy scent. Good scents... maze, maybe rice, good grains and malt.

Taste - An unexpected, weird flavor off the bat. Has notes of citrus. Tastes of faded hops and almost sour tasting, with a slight metallic aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Standard carbonation, standard thickness. Drinkable.

Overall - Not a terrible beer, however, it's not the greatest. If you're already drunk, this may appeal to you.

Cheers.

I used to like this quite a bit but now it's a little subpar. Goes down easy but has a touch of a rank taste. Basically a bbq beer. But there are better options for that.

From oil can
Looks like something yellow you find on the snow
grassy corn with saccharin lingering after taste
some hops but i can tell which type
smells like corn
head disperses after a second
I remember this being better or maybe it just many better choices in micro-brews
feel - watery corn

A clear honey color with a thin head. When i was younger, I always thought this was a great beer. But now it tastes like any other mainstream American lager. It's cheap and easy to drink. $3 for an oil can.

Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head that leaves no lacing. Smell is very mild mostly grains and a little bit of skunk. Tastes of sweet corn and grains, really nothing else; no complexity to it at all. Basically flavored water. Light bodied and well carbonated.
