Used to like Asahi then noticed that it's brewed under licence in the UK - just another mass produced lager.

I noticed that Brooklyn in the UK is now brewed under licence at Carlsberg (the small cans anyway). It actually now tastes like Carlsberg. It was one of the last bastions of local store beers that was still authentically produced in the country of origin.

Go to any Morrisons Local or Tesco and I think the only brand lager that is still produced in its country of origin and not under licence is Peroni, although it is owned by Asahi.

Australia has licenced fake Asahi and full import brewed in Japan karakuchi in the mainstream stores. The import Asahi is my standard.

There's also brewed in Vietnam fake Sapporo in the huge cans.

If I want real Orion, Yebisu or Kirin then Japanese grocery stores exist in the major Australian cities with these. Korean places near me stock full import Orion and Kirin.

We can get proper imported Peroni too, that stuff in the red cans is real good.

Had a Köstritzer Schwarzbier at a German Pub in Lambeth recently - been chasing something similar ever since.

Stella an awful beer. Kronenberg better than Stella.

Like a Camden Hells IPA, Elvis Juice another favourite
