amber fluid

Definition

Slang

  • noun beer, Australian lager. A facetious euphemism used by Australians in the 1970s which was popularised in Britain first by Barry Humphries’ Barry McKenzie comic strip, then by TV advertisements, 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.
