Why are Australian beers so universally loved? No Australian beer I have tasted, even comes close to being as good as the European lagers. Possibly some of the James Squire range, but they're hardly representative.
Things like Fosters, Carlton Draught, VB, XXXX, they all have that similar taste to them. Are these in the same ballpark as Stella's (or wife beaters to the Poms), Heinekens or any other European lager.
I'd rather have any of these then "Australia's Finest" Crown Lager. Am I the only person who thinks these beers are very highly overrated?
