Re: 4 for £5.50 is considered inexpensive?
As opposed to the stuff micturated out of your average UK pub's lager tap, presumably...
Genuine US beer - even from the big brands - is better than the stuff sold under its name over here.
Same is true of Stella, Kronenbourg, Heineken, Grolsch etc.
Why do the Brits - well, the lagerboys - put up with this watery, no-taste stuff? Answer: they clearly don't care about flavour.
