What Is The Best Lager?

Tue Nov 21, 2000 6:59 am


It's simple enough.......what is the best lager?

You Americans have it with Bud or Michelob in my opinion!

The Asian lagers take a close second with Tiger, Asahi, Cobra.

Hey you beat me to it with a forum on beer!  

I am not a big fan of lagers actually.
I like Stouts and Porters!
The lightest I'll go would be a Pale Ale.

Red Leicester are joking about those beers you mentioned?

Well no, you are all wrong - it is a South Africa beer called Castle Lager brewed by South African Breweries, more commonly known as SAB. Their web site is: http://www.sab.co.za



Castle Lager wins Grand Champion bottled lager award at Brewing Industry International Awards, Burton-upon-Trent

SAB Beer Awards release

Millions of South African beer drinkers have always known it to be true, and now it's official, Castle Lager is the world's best lager beer.The supreme accolade was won in the face of fierce opposition from beers from more than 200 breweries in 40 countries at the world brewing " Oscars' ceremony in England, the Brewing Industry International Awards.

In addition to the award won by Castle, SAB's Hansa Pilsener won a silver medal. Barry Axcell, chief brewer of The South African Breweries, who received the award in London today (April 11), said the victory vindicated the taste buds of South African drinkers who for 105 years have ensured that Castle is one of the country's favourite beers. "Since our founder brewer, Charles Glass, first brewed Castle in 1895 using only the finest natural ingredients, the brand has been the perfect thirst quencher for South Africa's hot, dry climate. The original recipe and the art of brewing Castle Lager have been passed down through generations of brewmasters ensuring a perfectly balanced beer with a somewhat dry, somewhat bitter, but never sweet taste. "We are delighted that this taste has found favour with the international panel of judges. We believe that Castle is a good example of the ability of South African companies and products to successfully compete on the world stage," he said. This is the second time that a South African Breweries beer has won the supreme accolade at the Brewing Industry International Awards competition.

The company's other award was in 1990. Over the three days of the competition - the world's oldest and most prestigious- in the home of British brewing, Burton-Upon -Trent, 34 judges from 13 countries, including South Africa, evaluated all entries on taste, aroma and appearance, before whittling them down to 61 beers spread over eight categories. The judging panel, which is formed by invitation only, included brewers from the world's top brewing companies, including Guinness, Carlsberg, Budweiser Stag, Whitbread, Pilsner Urquell, Kirin, Bass, Boddingtons and Interbrew. The competition attracted a record number of entries from countries such as Britain, the United States, Germany, Belgium, Japan, the Czech Republic, Ireland and Sweden. Castle Lager competed in Class 2 (beers with an alcohol by volume content range of between 4,5% and 5,5%) in the International Bottled and Canned Lager section.


To achieve the "world's best" accolade, Castle had to win its class and then compete against the Class 1 and Class 3 winners. To lift one of the eight championship trophies represented " the pinnacle of achievement in each respective beer style" and the award conferred the international mark of excellence on the winning brewer, brewing team and brand, said Brewing Industry International Awards spokesman, John Bass.


And for those that don't really know what a "lager" is:

Etymology: German Lagerbier beer made for storage, from Lager storehouse + Bier beer
Date: circa 1853
: a light beer brewed by slow fermentation and matured under refrigeration





Behind every "no" is a "yes"

Bud or Miller!!?? Are you smoking crack there boy!!?? It is like someone pissed in a can and stuck it behind the radiator to ferment it. As lagers go Sam Adams is a pretty decent brew.

I guess a lot of it is what you are used to?

British lager like Carling Black Label has a less proof percentage than tap water.

American Lager I feel, does not have the sour bite that Euro lager (particularily German) does.

It's smooth and sweet. As for the Asian lagers, I am deadly serious, give them a try?

However, do not fret, the next topic is what is the best VODKA? Aeroflot staff's favourite!

Look out for it.

My favourite mainstream is Stella Artois. The best micro-brewed I have had was in Quebec... "Tremblay".

I totally agree with you on the Asian lagers.

Tiger, Asahi, Kirin and a few others are nice drops.

But me, I prefer a Crownie anyday

For a totally disgusting lager give South Pacific Lager from Papua New Guinea a try. I am sure they have canned it straight from the Ok Tedi (for those who don't know, the Ok Tedi is a river which has become polluted because of a mining operation upstream)
