Pale, straw-yellow body with thick, sticky white head. Faint, wet grass aroma. Weak, watery flavor; trace of biscuit; mild hop bitterness towards the finish. Medium-light body; crisp, clean, dry finish.

A good thirst quencher in that it is more watery than any kind of good beer flavor. One might hope for a big flavor from a big beer can, but this lager is pretty non-descript. In fact, there is very little taste or aroma worth getting excited about. But it is wet and does have a decent ABV, so if you're looking for something to slake a parched throat and you don't have any decent cold water about, Foster's will get the job done. Otherwise, there are too many other, better lagers out there to satisfy a beer thirst.

After a long day at work I stop by the nearest corner store for a cold one. Fosters in a big ass can, will do. Had it before in the military but not in the last 10 years. Within 5 miles I remembered why. Standard crap big batch lager. By the time I finished it and tossed that huge can out on the interstate, I promise the next time I drink this will be when I'm stranded on a deserted island and a case washes ashore.
