LIDL Doom Bar - AVOID
 
Sharp's brewery are close to my home and their beers are fantastic. Happy was I to see their bottled Doom Bar on offer in LIDL. I have tasted worse ale in forty years, but I really cannot remember when. Brewed by Molson Coors in Burton-upon-Trent, not by Sharp's in Rock, Cornwall. Avoid like COVID - it's vile! :(

:lol: yes it does taste a bit odd.

Rusty Ferret is another one. It tastes just like it sounds. Well not exactly , it tastes more like a decomposing Ferret and smells pretty much the same too!

Our local LIDL has an ever-changing array of good ales and you would likely have different selection. Some of their guest canned ales are surprisingly palatable so don't dismiss them out of hand as I used to. They have an excellent chocolate malt stout at the moment called Chokka Blokka and their small can Twisted Knots American IPA is interesting too. I enjoy cider too and their Woodgate made-in-Devon 6.0% scrumpy is fantastic value at 2.69 for four large cans.
Perhaps the best option is to do what I do - try them all! Annoyingly LIDL often omit the brewery, or even country, of origin and the very hardest beer to find is German lager. Ohh the irony...

Cheers will do, I was asking as there lager and their wine is pretty good, but have not tried the ales

Local LIDL to me in Loughborough sells The Amber Adder Ale. By the Hatherwood craft beer company. Its not half bad.

If it's Ale you want, I can't recommend this stuff enough and not just because my ex comes from that town. They'll even post it to you. https://www.felinfoel.com/
