Lurpak is different from most other butters because of the way it's made.

This butter, however, is much the same as any other British butter and tastes pretty much the same. The comment about 'poor taste' above is nonsense, and was made by someone who's never tried Lidl butter and compared it with others.

it's ok butter. it's not anchor though. but I wouldn't pay 1.49 for 500g of this rather pay 3£ for 1kg anchor.

It's indistinguishable from Anchor. And, just out of curiosity, where do you buy Anchor for £3 a kilo?

Buy cream, over whip it and your left with butter made by your own hand, add salt if desired. You also get left with butter milk. Great for many things including southern fried chicken as a weekend treat

Absolutely. But given that the only variable in standard British butters like this (along with Anchor, Country Life etc) is the salt content, and that they're all made in the same small number of creameries, perhaps you could elaborate on what you call 'poor taste'.

I agree, when it comes to the taste. I used to buy butter from Lidl, but around 1-1.5yrs ago I think they've changed supplier and butter stank and tasted weird, so I simply stopped buying it.
Tried Morrisons one, but as for normal butter was surprisingly spreading very easily, so I think there is some oil added into it plus it doesn't smell as good as branded butters.
Since that time I only buy butter from Asda, always the same smell/taste, always good. If you don't want to spend too much money on butter, go for Asda one, as you will definitely won't be disappointed! =)

P.S. My whole comment was on unsalted versions of butter.
