maybe they figure people already go for Fosters Lager, so they must know
what it is.

It uses a specific bewing technique, but I think the main thing you need to
know about Lager is that you are supposed to drink it chilled, where as an
Ale should be consumed at room temperature.

Sigh.

In lagers, the yeast flocculates at the bottom. In ales, at the
top. Lagers are (generally) lighter, but it's got NOTHING do do
with what temperature you're "supposed to drink it at". They're
FERMENTED at lower temperatures, that's all.

The dumbest commercial is the one with the Ford pickup being spun around a
huge centrifuge.  How many people choose a truck by the incredible strength
of the front tow hooks?  I would guess the answer to be zero in the entire
history of pick up trucks.

And how hard would it be to replace the tow hooks on a Chevy, Dodge, Toyota,
etc. with closed loops like the Ford has if that's what you wanted?

They don't use enough hops.

Correct. And one of its typical characteristics is a fairly
high use of hops. I wouldn't call Budweiser a particularly
"hoppy" beer. Would you?

That's JUST as deceptive as calling it "beer", IMHO.  :)
