From the Paper:

"SABMiller is the second largest brewer (by volume) in the world. SABMiller's products are differentiated from other products in the market through taste, look, cost, and advertising. SABMiller's different brands of beer all have their own unique flavor so as to differentiate between their product and a substitute product such as a beer produced by Anheuser-Busch. The bottle labels of SABMiller's products also differ so as to have a unique volume of products within the market. SABMiller's prices are different as certain beers are cheaper. Finally, SABMiller's products are differentiated through the way SABMiller chooses to advertise certain products. While less costly beers such as Milwaukee's Best and Steel Reserve may not be advertised because of their low price, beers such as Miller Genuine Draft and Miller Lite are advertised so as to keep up in the market with their competition mainly Coors and Budweiser. Other SABMiller products such as Pilsner Urquell and Amstel may only be advertised in specialty magazines for SABMiller wants to give the impression that those types of beers are of high class."
