For a Lager with an ABV of 5%... I think it is a great choice... I think these reviews are skewed against heavily marketed beer...

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
