because I wouldn't normal choose to drink it, but it's alright out of a can and it's alright if the can isn't chilled. just a solid back-up beer at a party.
Fosters is dull but Carling has that huge aroma of yeast, like you've just stepped into a bakery.
We try and get third instead (wine). First prize is wine AND four pints of Carling, so third place is where it's at.
Downside is it's quite weak though
is this the same as 4x gold in Australia? It's pretty bad
I bought a pint of it once (don't know why, shut up) and it was practically transparent. At least the watery taste means it's easy to drink. It's the supermarket own-brand basic white bread of beer.
You can all stop thising other things now.
In Philadelphia I had a cocktail called Hillbilly Gatorade
Miller High Life (the champagne of beers it said on the side)
Here is a photo of me attempting to not be sick drinking it

I don't want to have to give you some beats.

is that a lager?
I'm not sure super lagers count as lagers
but I'll enjoy watching the shitfught over this one unfold yet again.
non alcoholic lager made by Guinness. Awful.
it was 59 cents for a big bottle in an italian supermarket
i only realised as i was drinking it that the bottle doesn't say 'beer' on it at all in any language (instead it's a 'pure malt beverage') because it doesn't contain any hops.
honestly the worst liquid to have ever passed through my lips, and once i drank my own piss
the same brewery does another beer called Celtica which isn't actually terrible but for some reason says it's "traditional Irish beer" on the label and i'm still scratching my head over that
Having said that, how could I resist buying Brigand?:
how about sexy lager
i want to start exporting this to britain
think of the massive 'lad' market
What the fuck?
and that's so much worse.
it doesn't taste like Satan's vomit when it's been out in the sun all day as Carlsberg does.
...Carlsberg was easily the best of the 'session' lagers. Easily.
It's still not very nice though.
not nearly as offensive as carling. drunk a lot of carlsberg last year cos it was what they sold cheaply on campus and its not actually *that* bad, its only annoying cos you'd have to drink 8 cans of the stuff, and spend half your evening pissing, to get remotely drunk
which is sometimes the only passable option if you're in a really bad pub.
Carlton Draught /Mid
thats the second worst of the lot for me.
i think all the formaldehyde in it has pickled your brain
Fuck off doesn't look as funny on the page as it sounded in my head. But still, Hite tastes like cool, pure Korean spring water.
Some people like their beer to taste like beer, but each to their own.
i'm just alarmed by the readiness to defend a drink that tastes exactly like when you accidently drink a bit of unrinsed fairy liquid in the bottom of your glass of water
asked for 'the cheapest beer you have' in loads of venues in london
alongside the obvious ones, Carling, Carlsberg etc.
I was an idiot.
personally i hate the taste of stella, it's too chemical, but i don't object to other people drinking it.
the worst is carling, it's so gassy. fosters and carlsberg are both quite watery but sometimes that's what i want. especially if i've taken drugs.
fosters > carlsberg > becks vier > stella 5% > stella 4% >>>>> carling
off topic: i'll drink absolutely anything over strongbow. if someone buys me a strongbow cos they think i drink it i get quite upset. this happened on my 21st birthday, a friend assumed i drank strongbow :( i just downed it and got on with drinking lager.
Seriously. Makes me feel ill.
i find stella undrinkable. don't like it off tap much either. out of a bottle it just smells like marijuana.
No? Seriously, what the fuck people?
It's miles worse than Carling. Carling tastes of very little. Tennents taste BOGGIN.
Associate it with Scottish psychos on trains/tramps, therefore it never crosses my mind to try it (see also special brew).
But you see Tennents Super/Export/whatever around. That's tramp juice.
But Tennents Lager is generally served in a yellow can with a big red T on it, and it's really foul. The first pint of it gives you this cold hard lump in your solar plexus that you just have to drink through. There were several times at uni when towards the end of the night I only had £1.50 left in my wallet and had the choice between a pint of Tennents or nothing. Nothing always won.
never again. It was free, but I reckon I'd have been better off eating dirt.
On the drinkability scale.
if you can get a nice, cold pint of it. Just because its the glaswegian standard then a lot of cool people turn their noses up at it.
