less than 60p for a 500ml bottle of German lager, although it's made in France.

"Reduced to clear" in my Asda. Good price, and quite a nice beer too. The slightly higher alcohol one normally next to it in the gold cans is nicer (imho), but slightly more expensive.

Nice find, I will have to check out my local Asda. I thought this was a Swiss beer though.

It's a Swiss brand but now owned by the Carlsberg Group, so could be brewed at any of their breweries or even under contract by a completely different company. That doesn't necessarily mean it will be a bad beer though. If I had an Asda next door I would go and buy some coz I could do with a nice lager right now.

Good deal, just ordered.

Cheers OP, I'll check my local when I go for my pizza later

This stuff is bottom of the barrel (no pun intended). Taste is bland and chemical. I'd rather buy any of the 4 bottle for £5 (including Guinness) over this any day.

P.S. The company is based in Switzerland, so it's a bit rich to call it a German beer. They don't abide by the german brewing laws that make German beer good, so it's a con to call it German beer.

P.P.S. It was bought out by Carlsberg in 2000, so it's on a par with Carlsberg. You know, Carlsberg, that lovely, top quality, high end lager X)

None in my local Asda.

In fact they had never even heard of it.

Yeah, it does lack character, exactly like 90% of all the other cheap lagers out there, but it's really inoffensive and doesn't have any bad tang so if you're just guzzling to get drunk then this is a pretty good deal. I'm drinking it right now and it's got a very slight medicinal edge but I wouldn't be surprised if one pack is different to another. Sometimes the stubbies you'd get in AldLidi's would be brackish then other times they'd be really wheaty, which I love. For getting drunk cheap it's less expensive than Galahad (4.5%) and tastes better. It's about the same price as "Excelsior" (3.9%) and the taste is fairly similar.

As an aside I bought some Guiness in a tin recently, 4.1% widget jobbies, and it tastes so thin and nothingy - is it all like that now?

TLDR - waffle

Guinness from a tin is sacrilegious X) Also, it tastes like carp. Bottles are better. I don't know what they are, but they have a "Dublin" version and a "Jamican" version of Guinness now also. Both are better than a can, but neither are like the real thing. Meh, what can you do? Once a beer moves in mass production, it goes downhill rapidly in taste. I haven't drank cans for a long time because they always have a "can" taste about them, bottles don't influence the flavour so I stick with them.

Yes! Definitely. But the bottles look better than generico stubbies so if you put them in the ice trug there's less chances they'll get stolen and you'll end up finding all your booze opened by randoms and then left everywhere with about 2 chugs taken.

Lolz, at what point in their history were Guinness not hugely mass producing any of their beers? I can imagine couple of Irishmen sitting in a 1790's Dublin pub going "You know this Guinness has really gone downhill since they started making so much of it to send to England!"

Personally I've never thought much of classic Guinness, too dark, thick, slimy and with dull bitter hoppiness - though I've never been to Ireland so I've never had the full local brew "nitro-keg" experience - I'm really sure it's so, so much better than it is in UK That said I do like their West Indies Porter - that's a not bad/quite good (though not brilliant) example of a porter.

The Guinness notion of it being best in Ireland is definitely a myth. The best pints I've ever had were in the Philharmonic in Cardiff and that includes pints in Ireland and the Guinness Brewery. And I've had pints just as good elsewhere.

On topic this lager gets a bit much by the 5th bottle.
