    Haha. I rate Aussie beers. I have every confidence its not shabby for a 3.5%'er as far as 3.5%er's go.

    Nopes.

    I genuinely like and am surprised by how good Aussie beer is.

    VB was my regular beer of choice.

    lol - nope it's shit like most Aussie beers I've tried

    Craft beers are big here, and some really good - not a big beer drinker myself, but f**ked if I'll drink Lion Red, Tui, Tooheys, VB, XXXX etc - I'm not sure what piss tastes like, but I imagine it's similar to any of those

    VB is a full strength at 4.9 - nothing like a 3.5 or 4.0, plus it is a bitter lager.

    I prefer it to IMPORTED Henineken, Becks and lot more European and Asian beers.

    I'm not a fan of craft beers.

    I could make the exact same post from an Aussie perspective tbh....

    We get a lot of the Kiwi craft stuff here. Most of it is good.

    Are the craft beers not big there? Shame, some of the small brewers do a nice job IMO

    No I mea word for word that post could be read from my Aussie perspective. We've got some awesome craft beers. Even some of the "mainstream" craft beers (oxymoron alert) brewed by the major guys are bloody good.

    This is what happens to a match thread when the game finishes early.

    Oh well, no VB for me today, a chilled Chardonnay from Marlborough instead.

    Ahh, gotcha - yeah, I specifically included Kiwi and Aussie beers - the garden variety ones are pretty lame, but with a bit of effort they prove than can actually make nice beers

    With some flavour, usually :p

    Although a Dry is great after 7 hours of cricket. Doesn't even touch the sides.

    I'm going to take my tasteless heathen VB beer drinking and enjoying tastebuds and pour myse
    Heh, thats the thing with beers. Some conditions suit a savoury beer best, some suit a quenching beer best, yet some people just want a nice all-rounder to suit all conditions. While some beers on the palette leave many people with a "what was the brewer thinking?"

    Its like wine, I get Sav Blanc, I just don't like its acidity. But Shiraz, outside of being meal specific or blended to a wonderful rose, I struggle to grasp the appreciation of short of smoking roll your owns filterlessly and regularly for 50 years.

    NZ Sav Blanc is, IMO, the worst thing to happen to wine since Rosemount Chardonnay and oak chips. And until very recently I sold and wrote about wine for a living.
