Ssshh. Don't tell everyone, there will be none left. Hobgoblin usually goes down in price around Halloween too. I stock up for the winter months!

The lager sections at Tesco / Asda are very good now

Kingfisher / Tiger / Chang / Morretti / Asahi / Blue Moon / Cobra / Moosehead all very nice and taste different. Usually in the 3 660ml bottles for a fiver range too

I'm not a snob & I do still buy the generic fosters / stellar 4 / beck veir when just wanting a cheap alternative - say for family BBQ etc but the canned versions do taste abit like ass after a couple.. especially when the initial coldness goes

We used to have a bar & took great pride how we served the ales & lagers... even making the draft Carlsberg / John Smiths taste very nice, alot of the time its just about keeping them clean & serving at right temperature. Lose that with mass produced cans.. thats where the problem lies with the so called 'rubbish' lager imo.. its the only version people have ever tried

Heineken is a lot better now they just brew what used to be the export one - 5 ish % - If that makes sense?!

Carlsberg Export is the same, a nice drink if you can get it on draught; keeps it's head very well. Cans are a little hit and miss though.

I don't live in the UK but I'd say that back in the day:

Carlsberg Export was my go to beer.
Would love a Kingfisher or Cobra these days but I don't wanna pay 5 quid a bottle.

A few favourites at the moment...

Thwaites Wainwright
Adnams Ghost Ship
Adnams Southwold Bitter

As for Lager, most of the stuff that's served on tap is drinkable but, not particularly tasty! If I have a beer on tap it tends to be Peroni, Kronenbourg or Grolsch. Bottle; Samuel Adams Boston Lager, probably my favourite Lager and seems to be easy to come by these days.
