That's not quite how it works....

How are they for breakfast?
Used to be good 🍺🍻
Just picked 2 of these up and my dad did same. 2 packs were in a pack together and the checkout girl put them through as £8.99 for 2 packs, so quite pleased at £8.99 for 24 cans
Its no wife beater, but at that price its great for sunny afternoon sessions
I'll stick to the 5.2%Lowenbrau. I've got chilling at the moment
i didnt know they still knocked this stuff out!
Can get it on perfect draft in 6l kegs . Bit expensive here, but only 13 euros when daughter comes back from Germany.
Funny people moaning about the strength, but a lot of people like bud lite... that’s similar..... trendy

LOL that "accidentally" happened to me twice in Tesco with San Miguel cans about a month ago
Heh. There's *some* (Well, quite a few) have absolutely no sense of humour on here.
This is a blast from the past haven't seen this since the 90s

Agree.
Pity, Lowenbrau used to be a good one going back so don't fall for this unless you are making slug traps!

I'm always a tad puzzled with this sort of comment - not that I'm knocking it, but it seems to suggest the ABV is the most important part of a brew - and I wouldn't really agree with that assessment.

I think taste is more important than the ABV - but that's just my opinion.

In my younger days I think the price of a pint in the pub was between 17 - 23p and most pints were between 3 - 4 ABV (possibly for tax reasons) - and we still managed to get drunk (and have all the problems associated with getting drunk today).

But, unless I'm being nostalgic, most of the beer tasted better than it does today (big generalisation - there were some rubbish brews too).
Perhaps it had less chemicals and more natural ingredients, or perhaps drinkers were easier to please back then - I really don't know - but these days many peeps seem to care only for high ABV offerings - many of which taste dreadful.

I'm just wondering if drinkers only drink to get drunk these days rather than say those who drink because they enjoy the taste or those who ony drink for social reasons, etc.
I suppose there's a whole bunch of reasons why peeps might put ABV at the top of their priorities when choosing a drink, but I'm not convinced that's any sort of golden rule.

The thing is that abv tends to go hand in hand with flavour.
I'll put it another way - breweries tend not to make their lower abv products as flavourful as they should, leading to the perception that a low abv=dishwater.

Thing is, the likes of cloudwater, northern monk etc. make decent brews at this price level, but they can be ten times the price.

tl;dr: major breweries produce nothing but crap (particularly at this level of abv).
