slightly off topic but I'm genuinly surprised when i'm stood at the bar and someone orders a pint of Carling!

Carling's only an option if I'm steering clear of strong lagers. It's good to see Amstel and Becks Vier making an appearance as a nicer alternative.

Corona's lovely and refreshing but only with lime. Had a bottle without the other week and it was just too flavourless.

Desperados is a quality French brew, its "flavoured" with Tequila, has a really nice taste to it!

Im a big fan of German beers, especially "Kolsch" beers brewed in Cologne. Kuppers, Reissdorf and Gaffel being my personal favorites.

There is a fantastic beer shop near where I live now called The Bottle Stop, it has an amazing selection of imported largers from all over the world, i try and get a few different ones each time I go.

Jupiler is a great Belgian beer, and Super Bock is a tasty brew from Portugal.

carling, fosters et al are piss water and should be avoided.

I currently enjoy a nice pint of Corrs, or hieneken (which has improved massivly since the move to 5%) and im partial to a bud, on tap.. but to be honest, ive gone off lager recently so ive not really been bothering.

Asahi is where its at, the aqua blue, especialy.

Is hoegarrden a lager? Had a few bottles of Citrus Hoegarrden in France this summer, was really nice and refreshing.

Citrus Fosters however is absolutely disgusting. Don't bother with that.

I wouldnt say that Carling was piss like others do, its weaker than other lagers, but I like it, especially if youre out all day, you dont want to be drinking premium strength lagers.

Bud on the other hand....

Staropramen is usually my draught beer of choice when I'm out, if its on offer.

I really dont like Fosters / Carling / Stella etc etc, to me they have a really artificial taste.

I quite like Bud on draught, but it seems to be a rare find now in these parts!

Pilsner Urquell and Zywiec are my two favourite lagers. Living in Belgium in Leuven and the Stella is way nicer here too. Not really drinking lager at the moment as there is so much other choice here though.

Desperado tastes like a beer alcopop, all sugary. Pretty poor.

Been drinking Carling more recently in an attempt to save money, and it's a lot less disgusting than I remember it being, but that's probably down to me necking it when it's still ice cold and fizzy. If I actually want to enjoy a pint I think I'll stick with Koppaburg for now.

Coors? Yes, I like that.

I love Asahi. Not had (or heard of) the aqua blue though.

Its brewed with seaweed, I had some imported from japn.. yummy...

Strongbow is £1.60 a pint in the union, and doesnt taste like warm urine by the final qtr of the pint.

That point goes out to all the carling drinkers.. (and fosters ugh) as soon as it gets a bit warm its rancid..

I'm on the southern comforts & lemonade in the Union, 1.65 single or 3.00 double. If I'm drinking beer it doesn't hand around long enough to get warm, everyone remarks on how fast I neck my pints.

I'm more than happy to tam some Carling when I'm out, as long as there's a dash of limp wristed lime in to take away the edge. The worst part of it is the head, it's sometimes as if someone just spat in the top of it. At least it'll always be better than Tennants.

My favourite lager (if I can find it!) is easily the Japanese's liquid gold Kirin. Immense balance of taste and refreshment that surpasses the more common Grolsch and Kronenberg.

Thought I posted this last night, but our local 'spoons has it on tap, and it is lovely. Plus it's only 10p more than a Fosters or something like that, so it's not even too expensive ;)

Aye, but you're paying for it with YOUR SOUL by drinking in Spoons.

But yes, it's pretty fucked up that a cheap wishy washy lager stands just 10p down from a thing of beauty.

We've got a beautiful spoons, though! Old Cinema adorned with framed movie posters and pictures, plus I only ever actually venture there during the day, so it's always nice and quiet.

Lovely stuff, although Pilsner Urquell may just top it for being available in the UK.

I tried that for the first time last night, you're right, it is lovely. Shame only the little Japanese shop down the road sells it ;)

Funny you should say that. Corona is utter shite and needs a dose of lime to actually make it drinkable. However it doesn't seem to be drunk by so many people anymore now that the cool persons drink is currently Magners/Bulmers.

By Xmas we'll probably have a cool bitter or ale or something which has been marketed to death which all the cool wankers will be drinking.

Me? I'll stick to any lager out of the tap.

Good man, amazing beer.

Available in Wetherspoons last time I checked. Only about £1.25 for a 500ml bottle too, which is incredible value.

Efes, which is Turkish I believe, also makes an appearance down 'spoons. 500ml bottle shaped a bit like a tit and less than a quid fifty? :lol:
