Advantages: Cheap, well branded
Disadvantages: Neeeds more taste
Let me start by saying that I am a lover of lager, I have tried and tested almost every lager available :p fosters is a very commercial beer, with brilliant adverts on tele which tend to make you laugh, it's a shame the beer isn't as good as the adverts. Fosters is an average beer, it tends to be cheaper than other brands because it usually contains only 4% alcohol, which is low compared to Stella etc. it's the best beer to have on a night out if you have a bit of a budget.
------ taste --------
Fosters doesn't actually have much of a taste if I'm being honest! It is rather dull. Its light and boring. It's not a bad taste, but it's not the nicest lager out there. I do enjoy it as a lager top though, it adds a bit of flavour to I, which I believe it is lacking. For a lot of my mates, this is there standard beer they would buy from the supermarket or when out down the pubs/clubs. For me I prefer carlsberg, I think It's got a better taste.
---- colours -----
Fosters "tinnies" are mainly blue. That's what makes the brand of fosters appealing, the vibrant blue colour they use to intice you in. I would say it works because they are the nicest looking cans on the shelf and they stand out. Fosters is all about branding, it's a shame the brand doesn't live up to the high expectations. What I will say though is fosters gold, which is slightly stronger beer, really is rather nice! The taste is mich better, but this is far more expensive and only is available in bottles. Maybe they will bring it out on draught soon? I do really hope so! Haha
----- draught ------
I think fosters is best bought from the tap! It tastes much nicer than from the can, so if I'm going to have a fosters, it would probably be down the pub :)
Overall I do really like the branding and the idea of fosters. It's never going to be my favourite beer, but maybe it will grow on me. I will still drink it however, and after a few pints, most beer tastes the same to me. Fosters has been around for a while now, and i think it will be in the future!
Thanks for reading my review :) hope it helped you out a bit :)
Summary: A good beer that is not my favourite?!
