This month we take a look at the often overlooked top selling lager in bottles and cans. All the favourites are here including Fosters, Red Stripe, Becks and more...
Birra Peroni Peroni Nastro Azzurro
74The herbal notes are interesting, but this pale golden lager needs to be cleaner and fresher.
Brauerei Beck Beck's
66Not as sweet as other beers sampled but grainy and dull.
Budweiser Stag Brewing Co Budweiser
73A very clean and delicate beer with a smooth, mellow finish but a totally undemanding drink.
68Drinkable but very insubstantial, with nothing to praise. The canned version brewed in the EU.
Carlsberg Holsten Pils
68The canned version. It has strength, but lacks finesse.
Cerveceria Brahma Brahma
72Overall, a sweet but very subtle beer with a rather feeble finish. Hop lovers will despair but it's at least quaffable.
66Uninspiring, characterless beer lacking freshness. The canned version.
Corona Cerveceria Modelo Corona Extra
68A pale golden lager with respectable body but which needs to be cleaner and fresher.
66The finish is the best feature, but after the taste that's not surprising. The canned version brewed in the EU.
Grolsche Bierbrouwerij Grolsch
60UK-brewed version in a can. Not a pleasant experience.
Heineken Brouwerijen BV Heineken
75Light-bodied for the strength, but well balanced with no off flavours.
Inbev Luton Stella Artois
75Well balanced and reasonably tasty with a good, crisp bitterness. The UK-brewed version.
Pivovar Bud?jovický Budvar Budweiser Budvar
77Not so promising to start, but eventually the soft, smoothness of the taste comes through, underlining its class.
Scottish & Newcastle Kronenbourg
73Unusual citrus notes bring character to an acceptable mainstream brand. The canned version, brewed in the UK.
The Eagle Brewery Red Stripe
68The canned version brewed by Wells & Young's in the UK. Definitely a beer to serve very cold.
