I don't see why it shouldn't based from this site, but you must have SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites, Standard software though.

configure forms based authentication and add the external user from custom database.

If all you are doing is a trial the easiest way is to create local users on the server where you are running the Sharepoint test.
