amber fluid, amber nectar

n
beer,
Australian lager. A facetious euphemism used by Australians in the 1970s which was popularised in Britain first by Barry Humphries' Barry McKen-zie comic strip, then by TV advertise-ments, featuring the actor Paul Hogan, for Australian beer in the 1980s. The term was enthusiastically adopted by some middle-class British drinkers, themselves fond of mock pompous coinages.
