And that's literally all I've ever heard of that beer ¬_¬
ahh inbev drove it into a ditch in 2009
XXXX was brewed under licence in the UK by InBev Ltd until 2009. It was commonly available in cans in British off licences and sometimes on tap in British pubs, although it was much less widely available than Foster's (which is found in many UK pubs). At 3.7% alcohol, the British brewed XXXX was somewhat weaker than most of the Australian variants. Castlemaine XXXX was withdrawn from the UK at the end of June 2009 when InBev's licensing agreement expired.
Castlemaine XXXX was dire. I've voted Carlsberg, Export is OK and actually pretty drinkable, Carlsberg itself is an awful awful beer. I don't mind Carling either despite the fact it is a terrible beer.
Can't stand lager unless I'm somewhere hot (or there's nothing else). Ale or Guinness for me. The only beer I've ever poured down the sink was Boddington's. And I can't stand all these fake traditional 'Oirish' cider/creamy beer inventions. When I was growing up in Belfast it was Guinness, Harp (a particularly thin and acid lager) or Smithwicks (a rather weedy bitter). That's all there was.
Oooh, tough decision. For me it's between Carling, the drink that was always on offer at our local newsagents at uni and always in our fridge despite hating it, and John Smith's, a drink I just can't bring myself to like. That said, I haven't had a John Smith's in years and my tastes have changed. I just remember it being strong and awful.
Hmmm I don't think i'd say no to a free Carling if I was thirsty on a boiling hot day. John Smith's it is then.
Being from Finland I can tell you we have the worst beer ever here. Karhu, Olvi and Lapinkulta (the regular ones normally found from bars) all taste pretty much like pee...
So yea, all of the listed in the poll are at least better than what we have here
