Erm. It's made by the same brewery. :P

Dreadful stuff both of them. Get the bottles of Carlsberg back, at least that is drinkable. Obviously pour it into plastic glasses if that's a problem.

Yeah I noticed that, ouch! Would rather carling or fosters. Not tried the Bloodstock ale, will have to give it a go, think they had pedagree on the menu too last year

They may be by the same brewery (i'll take your word for it) but i can actually drink Coors while Carling is so horrible that i reckon it could make the inside of the can rusty.

Yes, made by Molson Coors. It's the one thing I know about is beer. :D

I don't know where the advert has come from? Is that the new Bloodstock Forum as I've never had that problem before!?

Yes it is, it's fucking foul pish! It tastes like what I can only imagine that good beer tastes like after you've pissed it out.

Seems to be that if you link to a website it will automatically put the first part of the first page on here. Very odd indeed.

i was wondering about that.

I'm not one for posting other things. Thought the old copy the address and paste thing was normal. :?

What an excellent idea! :yes:

Because it's owned by Thatchers, not Wychwood.

If Carling Cider's there, it's pretty good actually (not made by molson coors). It's won heaps of taste awards. Not too sweet but to too acidic either.

I tried the Carling cherry cider a few weeks ago, it's actually really nice.

I had a free sample of it once and it was pretty bland. Certainly not worth £4 a pint anyway.

Can't argue with that. I guess big brands have to be pretty mainstream to reach as many people as they can.

Doesn't really explain why craft beer's so huge in the states though!
