Crown Lager should not be wasted....
They have aready done that - (when you can get it in a QP) the bottles are smaller. - :-|codash1099 said:... Now if this were happening to Hahn Premium, that WOULD be a disgrace! :mrgreen:
Robert Barlow said:Being a low effervescence beer, Crown Lager should NEVER be drunk from a glass. Assuming that the glass is clean and has no detergent residue in it, pouring a CL into a glass makes it look flat and what sparkle it has is quickly lost. It should be drunk from the bottle. Unfortunatelt the only QP that I have found that this is allowed in is CBR. Maybe in SYD or MEL the QP staff feel that some business baron is going to go beserk with a stubby. Not so the pollie crowd in CBR!

I'm with you, NM. Since when did a fancy bottle and gold wrapper make Crown a good beer? It's swill if you ask me.NM said:The bottle is the best place for Crown Larger. Best if all the content remain in the bottle and the lid remains sealed. Then select a decent beer .
Many years ago, when I had a passing association with the brewing industry (no, not as a drinker - well not that alone) I was told that the big difference between Crown and everything else produced by the then CUB was the extra effort to keep oxygen out of the headspace in the bottle. It was the oxygen that sends the beer off slowly and makes it unsuitable for export, which was the main market for Crown. Otherwise, the beer was indistinguishable from anything else.Yada Yada said:I'm with you, NM. Since when did a fancy bottle and gold wrapper make Crown a good beer? It's swill if you ask me.
Reminds me of when Streets downsized Paddle Pops. The packet said "new fun size". Fun for who?????Platy said:A different type of beer disaster befell my last Monday having a quiet ale before dinner on the Trinity Beach sea front - the first of the smaller sized new fangled bottles of Cascade Premium!!! Yuck - only 330ml!!! I immediately switched to Boags in protest...
...the now junior sized cascade was the same price too as the larger bottles
Hmmm. Crown Lager is a very good beer. For sure....Yada Yada said:Since when did a fancy bottle and gold wrapper make Crown a good beer? It's swill if you ask me.
May well be true but I find it hard to believe. There is huge difference in taste and quality between Crown Lager and VB? Am I imagining the difference?codash1099 said:Footnote: A friend of mine at the time reported seeing one of the bottling plants at work bottling VB or something when the labels suddenly changed to another of their brands, with no change in beer source. All were said to be interchangeable! I do not necessarily accept the veracity of that but I believe it to be reasonable.
