Beer Review: Foster’s

By far the worst of all the beers popular in India, Foster’s has been around for a long time now, since before alcohol advertising was banned. The cool commercials with the ‘Australian for beer’ slogan stuck, and the unknowing Indian was fooled into thinking he was opting for a quality brew everytime he asked the wine shop owner for a Foster’s. I’m not sure if a beer can be called ‘bland’, but this watery excuse for beer lacks the bite I expect from a lager that has nothing else going for it. Neither the bottled stuff nor the draught are worth drinking, and when I attend parties which has Foster’s as one of the sponsors (making Foster’s the only beer available), I either drink whisky or stick to water. Here’s raising an empty mug to people who drink Foster’s and praise its ‘drinkability’. I doubt anyone in Australia drinks this weak, poor lager they export to us. And Foster’s is drinkable, but so is piss.

    Sorry to divert ths topic bt thn its interesting.
    Fosters is Gay. I had a vry bad experience last nite itself. I went drinkin wth my offce collegue at ths place call ‘Banjara’ (not dhabha) its a small bar situated in kandivali west whch was also known as Karkera’s restaurant & bar.
    Since it was very hot we decided to sit in AC whch was as gud as sitting in non AC coz thre was only 1 unit whch had no cooling effect n we were still sweatin like pigs. Anyways, we called for the menu. I wantd to drink KF Mild, however the waiter said tht they only have Fosters. I was left wth no choice n i landed up callin for a bottle of fosters whch was hardly chilled. The interestin part was the menu, check ths out!
    KF Mild- 115/-
    KF Strong- 120/-
    Fosters- 115/-
    Now the scam is wth pricing n poor service of tht place. I was already 1 bottle dwn of Fosters whch anyways tasted aweful coz the beer was flat. Out of curiosity i called the manager coz waiters were dumbfucks n were buzy watchin TV. I thought the manager wld atleast respond in a better way, i askd him if they can get some pints of KF. He said 85 bucks, so i tld him tht bottle of beer is
    worth 115 bucks wld rather b cheaper. Guess what? The manager said ‘saheb, fosters toh 135 ka hai.’
    I askd him to get the menu, showed him the price of fosters as quoted in the menu. The manager said ‘sir yeh toh non AC ka menu hai, humare paas sirf ek hi AC wala menu tha woh bhi misplace ho gaya hai aap ko 135 bharna padega. We had also called for prawns sukha n price of it was 80 bucks n charged us 115 bucks for tht shit. Ths was a complete scam coz the waiter didnt inform us bout the pricing b4 takin the order. We were so mindfuckd tht we jst walked out frm tht place. Its not bout 10-15 bucks, its bout the principle. Thre were other bunch of ppl orderin alcohol wthout evn
    checkin the menu. Waiter thought ki ek – do bottle peene ke baad inlog ko kuch yaad nai rehga, but thn i had to make an announcement to othr ppl to chck the pricin b4 ordering anythng. Fosters is worse thn drinkin haywards 5000 or mayb Zingaro. I wld rather drink LP instead.

    Andheri Raat Mein Beer Tere Haath Mein!
