No, I must not let my dislike of Fosters get in the way.
First sip: Mild, sweet malts, with a faint hops after-taste. A very light mouth-feel and a lot of fizzy tingles on the tongue.
Okay, not as bad as I expected. It's a decent Eurolager that is a little light on taste, not memorable but also not horrible. It goes down easily and is very drinkable. This beer would be much better if it is consumed very cold on a very hot summer's day. It does a decent job of washing down a packet of cheese-and-onion crisps. After finishing this glass I didn't have a feeling that I'd drunk a beer and was ready for another. So this is a successful beer in that I would happily go a session on it.
The trouble is, the only Belgian thing about the bottle I am drinking is the name "Stella Artois" on the label. On the other hand if they rebranded this exact same lager as Fosters, then Fosters would be rendered drinkable.

Same again, sir? Yes, and another packet of chips, ta mate.
