Pripps Blå/SWE (after visiting Sweden, I managed to find out the brand name)
Ah, that was a staple when I was living there. I had forgotten about it!

The UK has been swept by the "craft beer" trend, which means every pub has different beers on rotation. That's great, some are really interesting and tasty, but then they are gone and impossible to find :|

In Sweden, the 'staple' beers are rather mediocre or  bit worse. From the 'cheaper' cathegory (still expensive for Hungarian pockets), Mariestad's Dunkel was the best. Pripps Blå was below average.

On the other hand, Oppigård's craft beers were surprisingly good and very tasty. They simply (New Sweden IPA, Amarillo APA, Indian Tribute) ashamed the craft beers of traditional beer-producing countries like Slovakia, Czechia, Germany and maybe even Belgium. They are expensive (around 2.5 EUR/0.33 l) but so fvcking great!

This. And the "reduced alcohol" versions sold in common shops are even worse...

Monyó Dead Rabbit Double IPA (HUN, 9.5% alcohol, 949 HUF/0.33 l): the most expensive alcoholic pee I have ever drunk. Strange bitterness, too alcoholic taste & sour cornish backtaste. Never ever... Mark: 4/10.
