For a quality lager, this is a great deal.

Superb deal for such a great drink - everyone likes it but dont buy it.... they always buy carling or summat - it annoys me

Yeah, it's often Carling, or similar, that's on offer. The premium lagers aren't on deals this good very often, so grab it whilst you can folks.

This deal gets posted at least once a week

its the same with many other supermarket deals dj lol. glad im not the only 1 to notice

good deal
but i saw an advert for morrisons yesterday which had a few crates, i think it was strongbow, carling, carlsberg, boddingtons etc. for £8 a crate i think you get around 18x440 cans per case...

By your own admission this isn't the best offer. if you want 'the best deal going in a supermarket at the time', people can just walk in and actually look for the best deal going in the supermarket at the time. There is pretty much always something on offer at this price or cheaper.

Which kind of makes this whole thread pointless.

No it doesn't. You miss the point. This is a premium lager at under £1.15 per litre or 64p a pint. Although this offer has been on and off at Sainsburys for a few weeks it is seldom that you will see a Lager of this quality at such a low price. I find that it is very rare that you get this quality and strength of lager at say Tesco/Asda/ Morrisons for under £1.35 per litre. Sainsbury's do however occasionally have this type of offer on Stella, Grolsch, other premium lagers.

Grolsch is hardly a premium lager. Its just not in the same league as the watered down urine they call Carlsberg Export.

Sure its an 'OK' offer. But no, its not hot. Yes, you can find deals of this calibre practically everytime you go to the supermarket (unlike the 20 bottles of Kronenburg for £7 not so long ago at Tesco - that was a 'hot' offer).

Of course it's a premium lager it's 5% vol FFS which = Premium!

Plus it's brewed in Burton on Trent which is renowned for it's excellent brewing water so it possibly even tastes nicer than the original Dutch version itself.

And finally no you can't always find deals of this calibre every time you go the supermarket. True there seems to be a lot more good deals on large crates of beer these days but you don't always get 20 cans of 5% vol stuff for a tenner they tend to come up every couple of months.

think your all missing the point...good deal great value yes.

but you only get what you pay for and ALL lagers are aboslutly awful, awfully made nasty liver destroying rubbish avoid it all costs :P

get yourself a good well made pint of guiness or perhaps a british real ale......stop putting yourselves through the misery of buying this rubbish :d

Woot. So because its 5% its 'premium'

OK, get ready for my post of 'Tesco Value Super Strength'. Its cheaper than this, and much stronger... That must make it 'Super Premium'.

or perhaps a british real ale



Amen

I was wondering where the Grolsch = premium thing has come from. Grolsch is one of the few lagers I drink, but it's hardly premium.

LOL, I've got some kestrel super (or any other black or gold can lager) here for you - 9%, Thats ELiTE Lager!! ;>

premium doesn't equal a certain strength (even if some marketing departments would try and say otherwise).

There is nothing correct about it. "premium" has no real meaning in the lager world - it can (and often is) be applied to anything.

It's a defined term, possibly coined by the beer manufacturers for any lager 5% or more - that's always been my understanding of it.

You will see that when reading alcohol intake guidelines, there is a difference in the units from a regular pint of beer and a 'premium'.

moob;3137870

It's a defined term,


No, it is an undefined term - it has no legal standing and has no protection. It can be applied to absolutely any lager product.

Some brewers claim 5%+ = premium, but it's certainly not industry wide.

The NHS use "Low Alcohol (Lager, Beer and Cider at 2%)," then "Normal Content (Beer, Cider, Lager at 4%, 5% & 6%)" and finally "Super Strengths (9%+).

Congrats on finding a reference point in a rather sad attempt to disprove my point.:roll:

It can be a defined term whether or not within statute - where did you get the idea it must enshrined within the confines of a legal definition for it to be a definition is beyond the concepts of rational thought.:-D

It's a great deal - and a great price for a premium lager.:-D:whistling:

I paid £6.60something for ten cans of Carlsberg at Asda the other day, that was the best deal I could find - so twenty Grolsch for a tenner? Bargain.

Good deal, might have to get some in to top up the supply! thanks, heat and rep

As proven by the Premium Cobra Alcohol Free Lager:

tesco.com/sup…htm

There are quite a few other alcohol free lagers which are called "Premium" by the brewer. Nothing to do with strength, just a marketing term in the same way as the word "Quality" is used.

Have some links, as you seem to favour them...:whistling:

]"The total UK market for premium lagers, beers and ciders is estimated to be worth £14.18bn in 2007. The basic definition of premium products among these drinks is based on alcoholic strength."

]"Premium lager is a marketing term sometimes used by brewers for products they wish to promote; there is no legal definition for such a product, but it is usually applied to an all malt product of around 5% abv. Anheuser-Busch also uses the terms "sub-premium" and "super-premium" to describe the low-end Busch beer and the high-end Michelob."

]"The total UK market for premium lagers, beers and ciders is estimated to be worth £14.18bn in 2007. The basic definition of premium products among these drinks is based on alcoholic strength. However, the quality of the drink and other more nebulous marketing factors — the positioning or `personality' of a brand, for example — can also distinguish the product as a premium drink."

]"The company was also critical of the way ‘premium' lager was defined in the UK, based on the ABV rather than the price. It said that it was this definition that was used by AC Nielsen in calculating that the sector had experienced a 3.5% decline in sales for the year to date."
