I bought a five-pack of "Beers of the World" at Marks & Spencer last month, fully expecting disappointing macro lagers but noting that at least they were all macro-lagers that I had not tried. My suspicions were aroused, however, when I discovered that not a single one of the beers in the pack is in the BeerAdvocate database.The pack includes:
- "Ashadha" Indian lager
- "Castillo" Spanish beer
- "Birra d'Oro" from Italy
- "Etoile D'or" from Belgium
- Oh, and another "Castillo" - now I feel even more scammed!
Others be warned: stay away! I'll report back on how they actually taste, but my expectations are now even lower than they were originally...
