It's Carling Cider that's been added. They had the normal shite anyway.

I thought it used to be Carlsberg for the generic lager option, but I was at the VIP bar last year and haven't really used the bar other years anyway so can't say for sure.

I'm sure they had Carling on last year. It all tastes the same to me anyway. :lol:

So the announcement was 10p off a still massively overpriced pint, and changing a complete lack of options to a completely different lack of options? Cool, I never drink at festivals anyway, so what a waste of time.

Bloody CARLING?! That's as bad as Wrexham lager! I'd sooner drink neatsfoot oil. Grafenwalder from Lidl (look it up) is a fine ale compared to bloody Carling.

It's good that they're dropping the prices a bit, I just hope that they're offering something other than Carling.

They are. There's still Hobgoblin, and also to people whining, I wouldn't expect beer prices to be any lower than typical pub prices in the capital, and that's roughly what they are. It's not great but there ARE choices, it's not THAT overpriced, and you can always pop back to the campsite for a couple of pints and some food between bands, it's not like you have to walk far.

Nowt wrong with Red Stripe. Apart from it's price in certain venues. It's drinkable and at least has a decent alcohol content unlike most lagers that are weaker than cats piss.

Some of us are old enough to remember Kestrel, Skol and Lamot Pils.

Beers nowadays are generally much better!

I never used to mind Skol, although I don't think Ive ever drank it of a legal age so would likely have been happy with anything.

Carling is shite though, just full of gas and air.
