More outrage - Now Special Brew may be 'watered down'

After yesterdays news of Cadbury's Creme Eggs being tampered with it seems that Carlsberg Special Brew may be the next target.

Carlberg are committed to reducing it to no more than four units per can. This will mean weaker lager or smaller cans

As long as they don't touch barley wine, they can do what they want with that brown paper bag filler.

Re: More outrage - Now Special Brew may be 'watered down'

One new scam we noticed on our last visit- loo paper. The inner core has almost doubled in size, and the paper rolled on to the core so loosely, it almost falls over to the side- not counted, lol, but probably a lot less sh..eets to the roll

Re: More outrage - Now Special Brew may be 'watered down'

What is going on?

Many years ago I was charged in Munich with driving under the influence of alcohol. My lawyer calculated I should have had 1.0 mg alcohol to 1 litre of blood. When the laboratory reported a figure of 0.45 mg I nearly fell off my chair in surprise. I hadn't felt drunk at all, which is why my girl friend didn't drive us home that night. The only logical explanation is that the restaurant was watering the beer down!!

Certainly, but did you buy a "jeton"?
