What? You mean not all Aussies drink Foster's? Yes, light beer generally means low calories (big deal, ~100 vs. ~150) in the U.S., but of course we have tasteless non-alcoholic beers too. Thanks to the Atkins craze there's even low-carb low-cal stuff, which is an abomination. I'm mostly trying to drink less but drink Sam Adams or Pete's or St. Pauli Girl when I do.
