I really don't get the cuurent hardon for beer which tastes like Milkshake or generally overhopped or overly flavoured and shit. I had a Beer52 box as it was on;y 4.99 P&P (as opposed to their normally about 20 quid for 8 or 10 cans) and it was all rank shit that's beer which wants to taste like anything else other than beer. I'm looking at you mainly Tiny Rebel. Salopian for example has many cracking pints with hints of grapefruit (Hoptwister), lemon (lemon dream) and general flora (Motherfucking Oracle. The finest ale on earth for me), but it's hints of it, not smacking you in the face with a critus fruit or another flavouring. This current "Let's make beer in annoying looking packaging which doesn't taste anything like beer" phase is doing my swede in. If I want to get pissed on Lilt I'll just buy a 2l bottle of it and pour vodka into each glass I have.
And don't even get me started on the race to the bottom to push up ABV to silly amounts.
