Foster's Premium Ale

Foster's Premium Ale (5.5%): an ESB (extra special/strong bitter) ale from Australia. In the beer world, you should always be careful when you see this catchy word: "premium". Foster's is known around the world for its big $ss blue can lager, but people tend to forget the brewery also offers Ales.

  • Bitter flavor with hints of plumbs and seltzers. Decent.
  • Unpleasant metallic aftertaste.
  • Foster's cans are awesome, including this one.


The aftertaste is a big turnoff. Below average.

Grade:C-
