Yes you now know someone that drinks Fosters, I like it so sue me.
I was in the supermarket (Morrisons) and had a quick look in the beer section not expecting to see anything other than the usual beer but to my surprise they had a small selection of beers I had never seen. So I thought fuck it and got these:

So now thanks to talkingship I'm gonna try something new......again....
Why no article on these beers you say? Come on! It's my first time trying beer with taste, maybe when I'm used to this new sensation I may, but not yet. There are more qualified writers out there for that.

Edit: In fact I will write up something, 'A New World, A Foster's drinker view on beer with taste.' or something to that effect.

I have been done proud, yet again, by turning a listener and loyal Shiphead on to new adventures in drinking. I can't wait to see what you think of the new delights you have purchased, good or bad. Nicely done sir!

Hooray! So proud of you. Definitely tell us what you think! I love it when people are willing to expand their horizons and try something new. Especially when it's beer.
