    The cans look interesting and reasonable for 99p/500ml.

    The EPA is dear...

    I find Aldi and Lidl are sneaky with their beers. There's always an over priced branded beer in the mix to throw u off or make the others look cheaper.
    Hobgoblin, various marstons beers, bishops finger, spitfire...

    Yes, but: those aren't available here normally spoken, might as well consider it 'import'. And still better than regular mainstream beers. The price is good, and the EPA is worth it. I'd pay €2 too.
    But the cans aren't available in the UK?

    I have a good few of the crafty brewing company beers. They are nice beer.

    Very indeed, maybe not the most adventurous but absolutely value for money.

    Mcgargles big banging IPA is a really nice ipa. You can get it in Lidl or Sainsbury's

    They certainly look worth trying. Haven't seen them in Lidl, France, though, but that's not surprising as, apart from their house lager, none of the bottled beers or ciders available in the UK are on sale here. Shame I liked some of them.

    I’ve had all 3 varieties of the cans, I’d not get too excited by them.
    I got them in Lidl Switzerland.

    Funnily enough I popped into Lidl this morning (don't normally shop there) and this caught my eye:

    That's my local brewery. They are based in Dundee and are excellent.

    There are actually six varieties. The stronger ones shown in the picture are not great at all, to me they taste under attenuated. The other three, not shown (a session IPA, a pale ale wheat and a 4%-ish IPA Radler) are much better. Hopefully they will be available in the UK at some point. They are only about 55p a can in Germany though
