Pastel-hued crime soap renders life and death equally beige.

The nondescript Mexican lager?

Of the nondescript Mexican lagers, I prefer Sol. No virus named after it and no confusion with the lorry-delivered fizzy fruit-flavoured drinks of my childhood. Also tastes better and stronger than Corona (lager).

It's one of a plethora of nondescript lagers that sell well internationally because people associate them with the refreshment they offered on a hot holiday. The only international lager I buy for the taste is Birra Moretti.

Charlotte likes Peroni because it doesn't make her burp.

My 7% solution of choice is Holsten, the nondescript German bock.

People can be quite snobby about Holsten, but as nondescript German lagers go, I find it all right.

I asked a Euro acquaintance about its provenance, he said it was "sold in gas stations." Sounds about right, it's way cheaper here than our domestic product. No complaints: goes down smooth, stays down.

Drank a lot of Moretti in Venice last year. I know that perceptions of flavour are influenced by environment, but I can't say that the apparently identical product purchased from Tesco is the same. Maybe it is. Maybe it's all to do with sitting in the sun and drinking cold beer after fighting past the other tourists.

Had a similar experience with Carlsberg, though not a fan of lagers in general (too acidic).

The locally sourced ingredients and the water have got to make some difference, you'd'a'thunk. Otherwise, why the big thing about the Trent or the Liffey? Not that I'd fancy a pint of either.

Well, assuming that they aren't all churned out of a massive brewery somewhere near Prague, I wouldn't be surprised to find differences in flavour. I remember years ago, before decent coffee was widely available, I was amazed by how French instant coffee tasted more like, well, coffee than the stuff sold in the UK by the same manufacturer (Nescafe). Turns out it really was different: a completely different blend based on marketing exercises but sold in identical jars (apart from the language). No idea if that's still true.

UK Moretti is brewed in the U.K. so yeah, won’t be the same. Carl’s berg is definitely different in Denmark as well, the water must make a big difference or they cheat the recipe, I dunno. 


haha my iPad doesn’t know Carlsberg, apparently. I suppose it’s possibly historically accurate?
