New Limited Edition Carling Zest Spiced Orange - 12x330ml just £6.00 @ Tesco Instore

aireyairey

Can't comment on the taste yet as it is in the process of being chilled, I don't have much expectation to be honest but at 50p a bottle its worth a try. Carling says...

A refreshing winter lager with a hint of spiced orange

Appearance: A light golden colour.

Aroma: Natural orange and subtle sweet spice aroma.

Taste: A medium bodied lager with a light orange, sherbet & spice character that has a sweet & astringent balance.

Aftertaste: A sharp clean finish with refreshing orange linger.

    Because nowadays, everyone HAS to go out and get so drunk they can't walk. When you get older, you grow out of this pathetic getting legless every night lark!

    I don't understand people who just cant have a drink to enjoy it, why do you have to drink high volumes all the time to get wasted. If that is the case then just purchase higher volumes and don't take the **** of this drink
    I visit Hungary at least twice a year, where they have a similar drink and also have many other flavors all around 3%.
    It is great, I can drink all day whilst visiting many different friends and without getting too drunk to make an idiot of myself.
    not sure on how this one tastes but as mentioned before by airey mine are chilling also.

    Its not the strength thats the issue with shiz water that is Carling (or any type of Inbev or Scottish & Newcastle brewery lager for that matter).

    I don't drink to get drunk, I simply enjoy larger/beer/ale with some taste behind it, and that tends to come around the 5%+ mark.

    The lemon zest is a nice drink but I havent tried this. The last time I had something similar was when Becks tried an orange flavoured beer a couple of years ago and it was the worst drink ever - the one and only time I've poured untouched beer down the sink.

    No idea what "shiz water" is or "inbev".
    Is that Chav speak?
    Maybe if you gave up smoking your taste buds might work correctly again.

    ****! i remember my local doing a lovely pint of heineken at 3.8, then the brewery changed it to 5.4 coz that was the "trend" tasted like ****!

    a quick tip if you don't like the taste of oranges, just add some dog **** to it, it will taste disgusting but better that carling.

    well, I don't mind the lemon one, but the orange one is well, not very orangey to be honest. You could say it's refreshing, and you ain't gonna get mashed on the stuff that's for sure, but they're not exactly 'zesty'. Not bad, not great, just drinkable. Good price though.

    By the way, Cobra did a couple of really lovely flavoured beers a while back - and they were so much better than these. Alas, it looks like only me bought them and they stopped making them after a short while :(

    This stuff tastes horrid, Bought some today to try it out and fell like throwing it all away. One of the worst tasting beers I've had the misfortune having.

    Beer and fruit should not be mixed IMO.

    Same price at Morrisons. Citrus one even £5 same 12 bottles.
    robrainsford
    Thing with this is when its not on offer its the same price as full strength beers but the duty is a lot less, bit of a rip off, ok at this price though

    plus you can buy a box of this, take it to a party, leave it on the side & drink the Stella someone else has bought :D
