Well, if you look at, say, Ritz saltine crackers, you'll find that they
_are_ leavened with baking powder or baking soda. Not much, but they're
not flatbread. Not like this stuff: http://www.recipezaar.com/137356

And the pity is, there are many _good_ Australian beers, e.g., Victoria
Bitter, Mathilda Bay Brass Monkey stout, etc.
I'd say your friend was being polite, since Foster's is something of an
object of derision, in Oz.
