Foster's and Lion Nathan have each launched citrus-infused beers in Australia following the entry of SABMiller's Miller Chill on the country's beer market.

The Foster's product, Carlton Dry Fusion, is a 4.2% alcohol lager brewed with lime and salt, while Lion's Barefoot Radler is a lemon and lime-infused lager. Both beers are priced at A$13.99 (US$12.50) for a six-pack.

The new products will compete with Miller Chill - beer with a dash of lime and salt, based on the Mexican 'chelada' - which was launched in November by Pacific Beverages, a joint venture between SABMiller and Coca Cola Amatil.
