This is a no-brainer...

Heat added

Really really great price. Defo heat from me

Any beer deal for less than 50p a can is rare....can anyone comment on taste & I don't need an ale taster on this one, is it ok?

It's a nice amber coloured ale, tasting bitter to start with a nice sweet after-taste, slightly nutty in flavour with a hint of spirit. Nicknamed 'skull attack' because you get drunk fairly quickly, even though it is 4.2%. Well worth buying a pack if your into your ales anyway.

known in Cardiff as skull attack so beware

Hope this is nationwide so that you can all taste one of Cardiff's finest brews.

interesting..

Never heard of it..any good?

Tis a tasty brew - will definitley be popping to Lidl. Never understood the 'Skull Attack' moniker though as it's just a session beer at 4.2%. Perhaps most other beer was much weaker 100 years ago or something?

Could be employed to make a mean Beer Can Chicken

Really nice - I bought some when we were on holiday in Anglesey. V smooth.

Nice one!...........

Horrid stuff. Brains have taken over a number of other local breweries and have some good ales (used to live on Double Dragon) but SA is pish I'm afraid. Fair enough at 50p a can though!

Don't usually like this but obviously an epic deal at just under 50p a can.

Gonna have a try oO looks intresting

mmm a nice brew, I hope there is some in my store

I'm from Cardiff, and I've never heard of this "skull attack" moniker. o0

Its nice stuff though, and a good price.

Available in Scotland? I love SA but you never see it up here in pubs or shops.

Ideal! Heat added.

Yep skull attack, pure headache juice

This stuff tastes nice draught but I never liked the canned version much, still cheap though and much prefer an ale like this than the usual cheap larger deals...

It's not showing on my local (Manchester) Lidl weekend deals so I'm guessing it isn't national.

I'm also from Cardiff and have never heard the term "skull attack".

hot hot hot! thanks!

Just got the last 2 crates left from what was a full pallet this morning. Thanks for the heads up.

Don't expect this to be available for long at this price though.

Deal not on in Cornwall

Not available in Scotland

strangely in Swansea there was a full pallet at 6.30pm tonight so would have been rude not to partake. Guy on till said it was bloody gr8 price but people wouldn't buy it coz of the Swansea / Cardiff rivalry lol !!!! 4 trays purchased and 6 cans later i'm still a Swansea supporter - just a little bit more **** for a little bit less cash ;o)

where are u mate? Swansea is rammed with the stuff and it's a proper nice ale, they just can't shift it lol

Just been to the local lidl store in LEIGH lancashire and a 4 pack was full price,asked the guy to check as its on the web site for today and tomorrow half price offer , he asked the branch manager and was told that offers for next weekend.

This is a good offer....or would be if you manage to find a Lidl store that actually has them in stock!!!!
Or is it a con just to get you in the shop????

The word Lossleader comes to mind
