Foster's Lager

This 5.0% ABV lager is from Australia, but the Foster's product for consumption in the US is now brewed here (it is now a SABMiller brand).

The beer pours a clear yellow golden in color. There is an inch of white, foamy head. The aroma is bright, a bit grassy, with golden cereal grain, and a touch of damp cardboard. The taste follows the aromas note for note. The finish is dry and lightly bitter, but with a touch of metallic. The aftertaste is light cardboard and very light circus peanuts candy, with the chemical astringency of artificial sweetener. The beer drinks with a strong and refreshing carbonation. This is pretty darn bad. I have not had a Foster's lager in ages, and I won't have one again soon. Like most beers that are this bad, it is moderately better directly from the can, but that is not a lot of improvement.
