Im in NZ now, but its good to see British lifestyle don't change!
Lager is the name for light, yellowish beers such as Fosters,Harp,Grolsch,Heineken,Carlsberg,Carling etc.
The best lager in western Europe is surely Stella Artois. The American style beers such as Bud are complete p*ss if you ask me, just slightly less sweet than champagne.
In the Uk, its all much of a muchness after Stella, maybe Kronenbourg 1664 next and then some of the stronger 'export' beers. Amstel can be ok too.
In NZ, there doesnt seem to be a decent lager, the light beers such as Steinlager and Export Gold mimicking the American style crap, and most of the other beers are much darker, not really lagers at all. DB draught I like more than any others. I really miss a good pint of Stella, and if anyone can tell me where to find it down under I would be grateful.
