    Any fans of lager beer here, and I mean the good stuff, not the cheap crap.

    Peroni?

    Amstel?

    How do different brands come across in your country?

    Carling and Carlsberg being the "cheap" stuff here in England...

    Go.

    I thought you said no crap. Double for stella.

    Pilsner Urquell and Czech Budweiser are pretty nice on a hot day.
    Some huge percentage of German/Czech beers are lagers and way better that the crap mentioned so far.

    I don't normally drink Lagers. Maybe a bud light or 2. If I'm offered one, i'll drink it out of respect to the person that gave it to me. But my main drink of choice is Guinness.

    You might not know when you're drinking lagers, many lagers are dark. You might like dopplebocks and dunkels.

    At the moment Iā€™m enjoying Bernard 3.8% / 10ā€™ imported from Czech Republic. Brands like Stella, Amstel and so on are made locally under license and ruined in the process.

    No, they're pretty awful in their home countries too.

    Haha could be. Never tried the imported ones, but judging by Heineken that was imported a few years ago, but it is made locally now ā€“ it is worse.

    Gave up drinking in my 20's, but when I did drink, Budwiser budvar was always a good favourite of mine.

    Lager are making a comeback here in the States. Many craft breweries are returning to this style after assaulting palates with "hop bombs".
    Most think of lagers as cheap crap like Bud & Miller & Coors.
    My favorite is Anchor California Lager. Great crisp taste & light hops & malt.

    +1 for Pilsner Urquell, also a fan of Grolsch.
    I like anything German, Czech and Dutch to be honest.

    Amstel is pretty mediocre.

    Palm premium all the way though.

    Some of the best party's or sessions were fuelled by lager back in my 20s. Ive drank Gallons of the stuff over the years. I drink ale now as my champagne party days are over.:)
