Hello Tankers. (Or should that be Tankards?)
I've tried a lot of lagers here in Scotland, today I have my first Polish lager called Tyskie chilling in the fridge. Just got a can out and it's a really refreshing drink. At 5.6% abv, it packs quite a punch, but it's very easy to drink, all in all a really nice Lager.
(Looking forward to finishing the other 5 cans.)  :)
My favourite Lager is Holsten Pils and in the four decades I've been drinking it I can't think of any I have enjoyed more.
What's your favourite Lager? I'd like to offer my body up as an experimental vessel, using it to imbibe as many different types as possible of the ones you recommend. Unfortunately, not all Lagers are available here, but I'll try and hunt down the one's you suggest.
I'm not as drink as thunkle peep.  :lol:

I'm a big fan of Fullers honey dew (draft), simply unbeatable.

I propose Stella Artois, from Belgium.  Not the locally brewed stuff, that's entirely average.

Not many draft Lagers available in Scotland TBH. I'd like to have tried that Fullers one, never seen it on the shelves though. Gordoink, I agree, the Stella you get in cans here, is distinctly average, there's a sweetness to it I don't like.

Not lager, but a cracking ale made by my local brewery.  You don't need many of these to lay you out!

Riggwelter meaning....

From the Old Norse words 'rigg', meaning back or shoulder, and 'velte', to overturn.  A Yorkshire Dales term to describe a heavily pregnant, broad backed ewe that has rolled over and is unable to right herself. It may also apply to a sheep that has found themselves in the same position due to their very heavy fleece.  When overturned, the sheep is said to be rigged or riggwelted.

Basically, this beer puts you on your back, in a good way.

Tyskie is a very good Polish beer. Zywiecj nice and cold is another epic Polish beer. Lechs is okay, but it really needs to be cold
Yes when we belgians went to poland last year, we consumed with 11 people 238 bottles of 50CL each on 7 days.

Regarding beers, as a belgian, i say you came to the good adress

Jupiler en Hoegaaerden are lagers i very recommend. Many people like our Stella artois, but thats not really a well liked beer here, it is the second most consumed beer after Jupiler.

Finally a proper topic  ;)

Personally I like Stella, even the brew in the UK though I agree not as good as the original.

Not a Lager but Fullers London Pride is rather nice and the canned is just as nice as the draft, only need slight chilling so good if your in a hurry  :Smile_great:

Carlsberg for availability and cheapness, Tescos finest.
Tyskie is rocket fuel and very nice, was sold in a tent at the holiday market in Belfast, lovely.
Budweiser Budwar, not the septic tank muck, excellent.
Tiger and Cobra also highly recommended, especially in the 600 odd ml bottles.
There was a German beer tent at the market, DAB and Paulaner, both very good, but the Oktoberfest was awesome, in steins, braindeath in liquid form.

I'm with Gertcha, London Pride being my all-time favourite beer but only draught.  Canned, I prefer Ruddles County.

I only drink draught or bottled lager, unless forced, I think the chemicals react with the can and give a weird taste.

Fussy?  Definitely.

Only problems I ever have with Lager, apart from taste, is that anything I drink on draft in the pub, ensures I'll be on the pan for about two days solid. (Well exactly the opposite of solid if you get my drift.) Maybe some bacteria that lives in the pipes don't agree with my giblets.
Beers treble that effect and that's a shame, because I like the taste of 'em.
Some nice pointers on here for lager, so I'll be keeping a weather eye open for them.
Would be great if anyone posting any noteworthy lagers available in the UK, could let me know their sources thanks.

Hi Warynsky, I haven't tried 2,3 and 4. Are those supermarket ones?
Strange that Peroni hasn't been mentioned yet, my brother in law loves it. It's nice, but way too expensive.

1. Jever (German Frisia local beer)
2. Hertog Jan (Dutch mostly commercial beer)
3. Bittburger (German beer)
4. Carlsberg (Danish beer)
5. Hoffmüller (Some local German beer out of the centre of Bayern)
6. Stiegl (Danm good tasting Austrian beer)

Onfortunally Carlsberg is hard to get in the Netherlands. Bittburger is usually somewhat easier. For Jever, my dad works in that part of Germany these days so he sometimes brings a few bottles.

Actually Hertog Jan I find the only Dutch beer that is drinkable.

Heineken has become too commercial, I refuse to drink it. German beers I prefer thanks to the German "Reinheitsgebot". Which is short means the beer only contains hops, barley and water and the products they give during the brewing process.

I think during one Dutch test some of the subjects thought Heineken taste worse than then some budget beers.

For me the only drinkeable Dutch beer remains Hertog Jan. Otherwise a German beer.
