    Yeah but you lot are hardly indicative of the rest of the country are you?

    The butlers bring the champagne ahead of you to the BBQ.

    On a side note, I don't like Fosters, Carling, XXXX or Carlsberg but I'll drink whatever is cheapest to be honest.

    1664 or Stella are OK for drinking though I've taken to Tiger beer and Castle recently as they've been on offer at the local Wetherspoons.

    The only Aussie beers i've tried are Fosters and XXXX, and both are a bit...well, ****. I prefer the indian beer, Cobra. That's nice. Other than that I drink Guinness and Hoegaarden.

    Staropramen is my current favourite - and it's served at my local Lloyds

    Corona is a very nice "I'm not a huge fan of beer but this tastes okay" sort of drink. If someone doesn't like the taste of beer much and asks for a recommendation, that's the one. I drink it from time to time, it's really quite nice, even if it's not particularly "beer" tasting.
    Yeah thats what i thought too..

    I haven't met many people over here that tolerate/drink fosters....Carlton Draught or Crown Lager are my most common beer drinks. But most of the time i drink rum and coke when i go out (because i can drink it all night and wake up fine next morning, beer is a different story thou ).

    export quality beer is different to what locals drink but.

    don't forget that. so local stella is worse than the stuff they export to ausrtalia and the same with fosters.

    Budweiser is perhaps the most over-rated beer I have ever have. I will rather drink any dangerous liquad chemical then ever touch that again.

    I have always wanted to try Amstel Gold and Carlsberg (I have seen Carling advertised over here).
