    Not as 'reassuringly expensive' as it used to be.
    It doesn't cost the same, and it doesn't taste the same either.

    I thought preservatives only went into bottled/canned beer to prolong its shelf life, like the added stuff to IPA when it was initially made to be shipped to the troops in the Rahj.

    Given the pride that the Germans have in their beer purity laws - is there anything they do in Germany when makign lager that isn't standard practice elsewhere anyway?

    I've not had a pint of lager since 2019. Don't miss it at all and when I smell it I do wonder - did I really used to enjoy drinking that?!
    It's not what the Germans do to it, more what they don't do to it. Drink draught Berliner Kindl or Dortmunder Tier for a session and you'll never want british lager ever again.

    You mean hops, they are preservatives.

    You won't find Germans drinking slop like Carling. They wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

    Stella is disgusting; Heineken too.
