Advantages: Cheap enough
Disadvantages: Not refreshing or that tasty!
I am not really a beer drinker however spirits and strong alcoholic beverages really get me drunk so fast and I tend to get really aggressive so over time I have learnt to drink less alcoholic drinks to which beer serves its purpose well.
Tonight my mate and I stayed in and ordered a lovely Indian take away and to go with it we had a glass a wine each and a couple of beers, lovely to chill with whilst watching celebrity big brother!
We had cans tonight which are dark green and are 500ml in size. On the front and back of the can we are told that they are Carlberg 'Copenhagen, 1847' and that it is 'Probably the best lager in the world...'. Other information on the can includes being told that it contains 3.8% alcohol (1.9 Uk units is in a can this size) that the can is made from aluminium and contact details for Carlsberg are given. Nice enough can this is.
The Drink Itself:
Light golden in colour with a few bubbles in it but it isn't overly fizzy and this isn't strong tasting beer really. It does have a malthy undertone to it but with a bit of a sourness that lingers in the mouth way after it has been consumed and a little too sweet (although naturally sweetened to be fair to it) in my opinion.
For me this just isn't rich enough in flavour and has a cheap taste to it but with 4 cans only retailing in my local corner shop only costing £3.50 for four I guess they are!
Probably the best lager in the world? Sorry no way pass me the Cobra or Stella!
