    I had a uk fosters recently(had to take one for the team). Very strange, do they add sugar when canning?

    Is it wrong to admit that the carlsberg brewery tour(the original Copenhagen location) is one of the best I've done?

    We got to drink the good stuff that never got exported. I got absolutely hammered too (I mean who goes on a brewery tour and is teetotal and then leaves all their free beer unopened)

    I did that in 1981 and there beer is nothing like ours, my mum was pissed on elephant beer, I asked the guide why it tasted different his answer was, you English have strange taste, don't know if its still the same but they had their own harbour

    Is this a case of 'and the winner is' the brewery that sold the most beer? Or just a bunch of plebs voting? Because there are some good lagers out there. They may not be mass produced or readily available in local boozers but they're out there.

    Just had a Doom Bar clone that had been in a pressure barrel for 3 months and I didn't know the cap had cracked and it was basically open to the air. I put it in bottles and reprimed and suplhited it and left in the warm for 10 days, 4 in the coal hole and tried it.

    It's not completely ruined. It had a slight alcohol burn but it finished at 1.006, way below the target. The flavour after a bit of thrashing is muted british hops, I used admiral for bittering then some pilgrim and savrinski goldinss later. I get a dark mahogony pub bench mixed with dried orange peel ending in a drying bitterness and tackyness in your mouth. It tastes really British and doesn't have that sicklyness that I've really been picking up more and more of with real Doom Bar. I'm age the other bottles for a while and test against few I put in bottles instead of the keg.

    @phildo79 I tried Gamma Ray and Doobie Duck's Disco Truck and a few others recently and I was completely underwhelmed. Actually disappointed because there were 3 of us doing tastings and I said these get real praise.

    They aren't lagers. I think they are pale ales.

    I thought the title of this thread should be in the jokes thread.

    When it comes to generic lagers, I used to love Cobra and Holsten Pils. I haven't had them in so long though so I don't know if I'd still feel the same way. When I was in Toronto I went round the Steam Whistle brewery (Canadian generic lager) which I really enjoyed and the beer was good. When I had it in bottle at a bar a few blocks over it was undrinkable.
