Sorry for the unintentional blasphemy - I meant Budweiser! Yikes!

When I was last in the USA I was 16 and in the company of my
parents, thus never had the privilege of sampling American beers
in their domestic form - I'm not sure Heinken here in Oz is the
same as over there. As a rule Aussie beers start at alcohol
contents where most American beers leave off according to a few
friends I've known who have lived in the USA. Over 5% is pretty
typical in Oz, and the bottles and cans seem to be larger. I'm
sure John can testify that Australians do like their beer. Here in
Queensland the local brew is XXXX - or Forex - but it tastes too
much like the wall lining of the vats for my liking. A visit to
that particular brewery is a Grade school excursion, or used to
be. I suspect we're all trained as kids to like beer by the taste
of Vegemite - a yeast extract spread, which most Aussies claim to
adore. It's an acquired taste. And it tastes a bit like beer... as
it really is beer fermentation vat scrapings. Or near enough to.
