i saw this in the supermarket.
it's like carling, but 2%.
why would anyone want to drink that?
the adverts call it 'the beer for after training'
how to make stupid consumer choices?
collected from a pub urinal on the friday night?
...want to drink carling, let alone carling with no alcohol in.
at the 10-14 year old market. I remember at that age when my family went to the pub I would be allowed a cheeky shandy or two and perhaps Carling are muscleing into that market?
and 15p a pint. Bet it tastes virtually the same!
no matter what the alcohol percentage, is beyond me.
it tastes like 2p coins found in drains, dipped in an extra layer of urine.
but still want to have a few pints and not drink and drive!
Although Carling does taste like shit. If only a better beer compnay could have had the same idea....
Now you put it like that good idea!
(of Stella fame) have done something similar recently, have they not?
they've made a 4% version of Stella.
Again, though, surely the only reason anyone drinks Stella is to get shitfaced, cos it sure as hell isn't for the taste, so why bother?
But still remain sober enough to get home and stuff. Who knows.
you can have a pint, and be under the drink/drive limit.
I don't drink Carling C2 much but I have done on a few occasions when I've driven to gigs at the Uni in Manchester.
However they don't seem to have it on tap anymore so it's either diet coke all night or shitfaced if I'm not driving. I don't really like to do in-between.
i've never seen it in a pub.
It's definitely aimed at the driver who wants one pint.
But I agree with all comments about this stuff. A workmate got given a free can at the station. It just sat at the end of our bank of desks gathering dust.
throughout this thread, that everyone drinks lager simply to get drunk.
For many, it tastes nice. A cold pint of lager, be it Carling, Carling C2, Stella Artois, or any of the other widely available brands, is really refreshing, and tastes absolutely fine.
i'm not a lager drinker, but the impression i've always had was that carling was very much a last ditch thing, desire to get trolleyed or not.
and i'm not sure i'm comfortable with people driving drinking ANYTHING, 2% lager or not.
but better a pint of 2% than a pint of 4%
their accelerator foot cut off :P
is a rarity.
thats the only reason i drank it
want to go to a gig in the car and not drink coke or water for every single drink I would have thought.
1. Coke - C2 - Coke
2. C2 - Coke - Coke
Or something like that. I wouldn't see the problem with someone doing that, personally.
