What difference does that make?


There is a difference and I'd say it's not quite as nice, but it's still very nice compared to other similar priced lager in my opinion.

I was one of these people who goes yeah what difference can it really make, but at one point I had an older bottle not brewed in the UK and a newer one that was, so I did a comparison and I could definitely tell the difference, I was actually surprised I could.

Definite heat though!

Edit - if anyone wants to do a taste test I've just notice the large 650ml bottles I bought from ASDA last week are brewed in Holland, so you can grab some of those and compare.

Good price hopefully my supermarket will match it so I can get discount 😁 Homebargains sometime have 400ml plastic bottles for .79p which I think is imported.

My reason for asking is breweries can get the EXACT profile from a brew so Heineken can be brewed in Australia and taste the same.

Beer ages like wine although has a much shorter shelflife. I reckon you got one either at it's best or you had the mental idea that it wasn't brewed in the UK so it should taste better

I brew my own btw.
Who remembers Heineken export. This used to be served in the pub's and clubs many years ago. Taste a lot better than this and not much stronger..
Great beer for the price, especially for Sainsburys, they don't stay on the shelf very long 🍻🤪

It's definitely not the same.

I thought you were a home-brewer, you would know.

UK Heineken is like settling for Linfield.

You know I hate Linfield.

A brewery can get a water profile off Guinness and follow the exact brewing process and come up with the exact same Guinness the World over. Same as Carlesberg, Heineken ect. The only difference is your experience of drinking it.

One of my best beers was a Dublin Porter in O'Connel Street. It's a Guinness brew so when I seen it in Belfast I thought brilliant I'll enjoy this. When I had it it just wasn't the same. Nothing had changed, it could have been driven 100 miles up the road but it just wasn't the same.

Although beer can spoil, I think most are circumstances, memories and surroundings. You'll always get your best pint of Guinness in Ireland, best Heineken in Holland, best Fosters in Australia but in all honesty they'll all be the same.

Like most average lagers marketed as "premium" products, but produced under licence over here! In most situations, that makes no difference, but when water in the principle ingredient...
And I should add, the old saying of Guinness doesn't travel well was true. They used to import Guinness around the World and it didn't travel well. Now when you go to Prague they'll brew it in Czechia because they can keep to the exact same brewing processes as Dublin (and charge you twice as much). I've had a pint in Prague and it tasted the same although I stuck mostly to dark lagers, that's another story

They purify the water and then profile the water they need.

Yes some others too but expensive cheapest peroni I've seen £1a bottle 330ml (Amazon prime) but rarely in big supermarkets

The other half had her first ever pint of Guinness in the brewery up in the top bar looking out over Dublin.

No pint has ever been the same.

But there's definitely something off about UK brewed Heineken.

I don't doubt you are right that it should be possible for them to taste exactly the same, but I can only speak from my own experience, there was a definite and subtle difference. I should add that I wasn't expecting any difference and was fed up with seeing this come up every time a Heineken deal was posted on here, even arging that its the same in the past, so I don't think I was predisposed to expecting a difference.
Gads, p*sh water

Brewcabin? Haha. Couldn't sound more "two-bit" if they tried! I'm just stuck with an image of middle age men with scruffy beards leaning over their home brew...

I tried to find anything regarding Heineken, but there didn't seem to be anything in the entire article.

Beer is like wine and it ages. There's a sell by date on beer but not on wine (afaik) but the stronger the alcohol, the longer it keeps.

I think this is a great deal and beer has become cheaper

I was gonna set up a website called 10papint.com but then realised that 20p is hard today and 30p...

Last Xmas when it was on offer at Morrisons, I bought a load of this and I was thoroughly disappointed with the taste. This was once one of my favorite lagers, needless to say, I won't be buying it again.
Why this is called PREMIUM???

Very true my best Guinness was in Temple Bar when me and the burd stopped off to see our Gaelic brothers and sisters never tasted anything like it since!
Ok but hardly premium beer!

I get your point, but just clarifying that Fosters doesn't exist in Australia, it's brewed exclusively for export.
