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.

I'm pretty sure that Lise would be fond of Desperados (5.9% alcohol, with tequila taste). For me, it's a sweet coctail.

Desperados: at least it's not Corona.

Faxe 10% (DEN, 10% alcohol, 1499 HUF/1 l): another shitty extra strong beer. Tastes like a cheap festival beer, tuned with toxic organic solvents and some additional alcohol. At least it kills fast. Mark: 2.5/10.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, a three-times champion of the world, Michael van Gerwen. He will demolish Dolan (or at least I hope he will).

Eichbaum Festbier (GER, 5.5% alcohol, 0.95 l beer + 1 l mug: 1799 HUF)
The name tells everything. Nothing special, a drinkable light beer without sour or strange backtaste. Not memorable either. Ideal choice after a hard workday. Mark: 6.5/10

My favorite is Corona with a quarter of lime put into the neck of the bottle.

It's Töff's favorite. There's no Corona beer in Hungary.

Well, when I was in California in 2013, I tasted Corona beer, I gave it a 5.5 mark.

I tasted Desperados this year, well, it is not really a beer, I found it drinkable but not good. Not my taste.

When I was in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in 2016, I tasted a drink very much like Desperados. Its name was Bandido (Cerveza con Tequila). It was a little bit better than Desperados. I drank it among the sand dunes in the warm December wind.

It's our solemn duty to make corona jokes until we're done with this mess, or it's done with us.

The beer that happens to carry the name is just an unfortunate collateral casualty. Or a good target of opportunity.

Yep, I see it absolutely like you do! 8) And - by the way - I like the Corona beer.
