If you like the cheap stuff, you are a horrible person.  We should clear out the child rapists and murderers from prison to make room for the likes of you.  Hyperbole, mockery.  Satire satire, satire.

But seriously, if you're broke (and there's nothing wrong with that) or an alcoholic, drink the cheap shiat.  Otherwise, drink what you like -- and there's a better chance that you'll find something that actually tastes good if you avoid the cheap crap and spend a couple extra bucks for something that's enjoyable.

oldernell: I don't care what you say, Fosters is still better than mainstream "merican" beer. I'll take it over a bud any day.(Consuming Sweetwater 420 right now.)

the Fosters you are drinking was probably brewed in Canada. and 'bud' is not beer, it is piss swill. try a Sam Adams or any of the 1,000 or so micro brews that are available these days for gosh sakes, live a little.

The Foster's you get in the States, at least when I last tried it at least 15 years ago, is made in Canada.  Probably so they can slap "imported" on the label and jack up the price.

Radak: tricycleracer: It was awesome when you could get those at Outback Steakhouse.

Which is Australian for Country Kitchen Buffet?

See: "Outback Steakhouse Review: Please Don't Call This Food Australian," written by a gen-yoo-ine Aussie.

FTFA: "It's the product advertised on both sides of the Atlantic as 'Australian for lager'." 

Nope. Us 'muricans are too stupid for even that minimal subtlety. The slogan here is "Australian for beer."

snuff3r: "For the record, VB and XXXX are Australia's biggest-selling beers "

Errr, XXXX attempted a comeback a few years ago but like Fosters, it's piss, and no self-respecting aussie touches it.

/Coopers and squire 4tw

Mmmmm, Coopers.  Haven't had their sparkling pale ale in a while.

Shadowknight: I know it's not a lager, but it's a British beer that taste damn good.

Jesus, no. John Smiths is like going to an Olive Garden and thinking you got damn good Italian food.

I've not been to Australia, but I won't judge them based on Fosters, so long as they don't judge us based on Budweiser.
