This. Is. Lager £1.49 a pint @ Wetherspoons (£2.49 in central london)

Found 28th Jun 2015
This is lager has been reduced in price across the country to make way for new products.
£1.49 in most locals, £2.49 in central London, enjoy responsibly.

Taken from the Brewdog website:

We had a simple aim. To reclaim one of the world’s formative beer styles in honour of the great German and Bohemian Pilsners of the 19th Century.

Brewed with 100% malt, ten times the hops of most industrial lagers and cold-conditioned for five weeks, this spicy, robust Pilsner is lager reborn.

Expect a robust, full-bodied malt character on the front of the tongue, spicy citrus notes as it goes back through the palate and an assertive bitter finish with a lemon and pepper character to round things off.

Reclaimed.
Perfected.
Renewed.

ABV: 4.7%
Malts: Pilsner, Munich, Cara
Hops: Hallertauer Hersbrucker, Saaz, Columbus

We were drinking this last night and it's a really nice lager. So much better than Heineken, Tuborg, and Carling.

when you eventually get served ????

It's horrible. Like a crap pint of Stella with the terrible bitter after taste. Not worth 1.49

lager top would be all right though

This. Is. Advertising. Brewdog. Style.

If it's a Brewdog production it'll have a horrible aftertaste and taste like pssssh.

snide council beer

It's a good price for a average beer. Tastes no worse than fosters carling carlsberg etc.

Lots of haters!

Lots of Spoons cheap beers at the moment... Adams Southwold. Sweet Action. Rogue all £1.49 in my local Hertford

I love Brewdog Punk IPA which is great for £1.99

Don't care how cheap this is, THIS. IS. CRAP.

Yes lots of things cost less many years ago!

It's strange isn't it?

Banned

when was the last (regular) £1 Wetherspoons pint - not just one-offs?

not a big pub goer these days but I think it was just 4 years ago, then they bumped it up 50p

All about the Bengali Tiger for me...lovely drop of beer and still exclusive to Wetherspoons.

The Bengali Tiger certainly hits the spot!

Try to get a Devils Backbone pint with a meal deal... The deli deal is £4.39 in Palmers Green London. Chicken Bacon cheese panini was impressive

When many pints in London are around £5 its hard to knock Spoons really and most Spoons seem to do a pretty good pint. Not all but that's when I'll have a bottle.

The people dissing this obviously have little taste and drink flavourless p!sswater. Stick to your carling and fosters kids!

It's not just in London. In Cardiff I'm always paying £4-5 for 2/3 a pint in craft ale bars!

IMO you can't beat Spoons for the quality and conditioning of beers. The pipes are constantly cleaned, kegs and casks constantly changed and always kept at the right temperatures. Fridges are rear-loaded so you'll basically never get a warm bottle or can.

Devils Backbone is one of the tastiest and most drinkable American IPA's around IMO... and at £2.49 a pint you really can't beat it!

Hmm, I know pub management from 25 years ago when I was area mgr for 25 pubs at a time as a young man out of university.

I know all the tricks.

Simplest thing to do is not be first person in the pub drinking a particular beer. Go in half an hour later and drink the same beer as the person ordering before you, unless you can see plenty has already been sold of many beers.

Or simply ask for a small taster of a couple of beers first - nearly all decent landlords will do this if they're not busy. You'd get a sample in a wine glass, most often.

Horses for courses, I like this larger, has some taste to it, unlike most generic ****

that's crazy cheap, lovely pint too

Reduced some craft beers like Sagres, Rogue Amber IPA and Vedette to £1.49 as well

nice price. But I'd rather have a Bengali Tiger at £1.99, ain't a pint but it tastes much better.

Its just standard size I'm afraid…….

Most lagers either have that Euro skunk taste or that kellogg's cereal … Most lagers either have that Euro skunk taste or that kellogg's cereal and wet cardboard taste, This is Lager has neither so is immediately better. It's no St Mungos, Schiehallion or Brooklyn but its a good pub lager compared to other generibrands. Obviously if i was in a Wetherspoons id be looking at the ales (price and choice wise) but a can of Sixpoint hits teh spot.Most people who hate this probably stick to the one brand of beer and that's it or don't even like beer. Me i like trying different stuff, some beers yes they are pretty duff but some are Paradox quality.I thought their old BrewDog 77 Lager was better but most people prefer This is Lager that replaced it.Don't think id pay the regular price for a This is Lager but its alright to get with a burger.



This post is pure comedy gold.

All about the ciders!

Are weatherspoons getting rid of these? Hope not one if my favourites

It was £1.99 the other week, has it dropped again then?

I prefer the Wifebeater.

Crackin lager - far more depth of flavour than generic crap like Fosters, Carling etc.

When your average Wetherspoons has between 4 and 8 real ales on, why drink fizzy lager or craft keg at all?

Tried it and it's no better or worse than any other draught lager.

Lager all tastes pretty much the same. The only difference is how much the brewers spend the marketing their own particular lager.

For £1.49 a pint, it's a hot deal for lager-drinkers, but I would much rather spend my money on a decent real ale for the same price or not much more in Wetherspoon's.

Because people have different tastes ? I cant go near a real ale, tastes like a flat lager which has been sitting around all day - but I drink with a few mates who love them.

I do appreciate a nice lager though, not tried this, will give it a whirl I suppose

I don't think I've ever tasted any 2 lagers which were the same to be fair.........

Can't argue with the price...even for Landon mate..heat added.

Devils Backbone has some fizz to it. Might appeal to some lager drinkers. It's certainly not an old man style bitter.
