Australian Beer Tastes Like Piss
Today’s cartoon is an homage to the beer of Australia. In America we get Foster’s as pretty much the only import of Australian beers. You know the commercial “Fosters, Australian for Beer.” However, you won’t find it anywhere in Australia and if you ask an Aussie, they will tell you that Fosters is crap they can and market to foreigners (typically “piss” is used in the sentence as well.
Now I am not a beer connoisseur like another in our travel party. I like pilsner and lagers. Don’t like wheat beer, don’t like ales, don’t like Guiness. Hell most of the time a Miller Lite is good enough for me (got to keep my figure you know). The beer whiz in the party thought all Australian beer tasted like piss. Compared to the microbrews all over the United States, it definitely was a much weaker taste. And trust me we went all over. In fact, here is a little taste of what beers I drank.
Tooheys and James Boags (OK I know it is Tasmania not Australia) were probably my favorites. Four X was one my least favorite though it is the most popular beer there.
Sadly there was one Australian Beer that I didn’t get to try… PISS BEER.
From their website:
Aussies have been on the piss, getting pissed, drinking piss, drinking more piss and, most definitely, taking the piss for the past two hundred years. The amazing thing is none of us thought to bottle it earlier. (Too busy getting pissed, probably.)
