    Is Lager OK to drink after Use By Date ?

    I have found a case of 24 cans of grolsch in the cupboard and the use by date is apr 09.
    Are they still ok to drink ?

    if you try it and feel ill... prolly not

    No and yes !!!!, you could poison yourself
    and then again you might not !!!, go to asda and buy some really really beer at 19 a can..its safer

    or read this

    yeah i would say a few weeks is ok but April not worth the belly ache

    After the first 2 you wont care:)

    It will be absolutely fine! Most dates are there so items are consumed at their optimum. Use by is the one to follow. I have had beer that is 6 months past and it was fine. Tasting will tell.

    Its possible to drink alchol such as bitter and lager mths after it goes out of date.
    If it tastes funny bin it.

    I guess I had better try some while watching the footy on bbc1 shortly

    It will be a best before date and not a use by date - generally speaking you'd be best to just taste it and see if it's ok.

    i had a two cans of fosters that were about two and a half years out of date!
    im still here, and they tasted fine........ish lol

    Makes you wonder how we ever managed in the old days when we seemed to all have common sense. Nowt had a date on it and the local shop got easter eggs out from the year before if he did not sell them. Not sure when dates were first put on beer but my dad worked at tetleys brewery and had stacks of cans that were there for ages and always tasted the same.

    If it tastes funny then you dont drink it but I thought alcohol kepts the bugs away anyhow:thinking:

    Thats 50 yr old whisky must be rank now lol:?

    Are you a man are a mouse? get it down your neck man#!!:w00t:
