Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 186: Fosters Classic Lager

I said right at the start of this that I would try All The Beers, even Fosters. Let's get it over with.

Fosters Classic Lager

Pours a clear pale golden colour with a medium head. Lots of carbonation visible.

First sip: A mix of sweet and grainy malts, with a very mild hops bitterness that seems to wash away quickly. No real after-taste. Medium to thin mouth feel, with medium carbonation on the tongue.

To be fair, this isn't the usual Fosters Lager. Apparently Carlton United went back to the original Fosters recipe of 1888 to produce this. They should never have left it, because Classic Lager is better than Fosters Lager. Better, in the way a poke in the eye with a blunt stick is better than a poke in the eye with a slightly sharper blunt stick. So let's say something positive about this beer:

It's ... a beer. And I will finish the glass instead of pouring it down the sink.



No, that's about it.
