About this deal

A lot of the French producers bottle at bottling co-operatives in the region as they haven't the scale to bottle at source. I've got no idea what the differences are, apparently the latter is offensive to beer ponces, thought it was great myself. To qualify for a refund or replacement, products need to be complete with all components and original packaging.

A true cavalier, Export has been refreshing thirsty workers worldwide with its delightfully sweet, full-bodied and hearty character since 1856. Renowned globally for bringing flavour to the table, McEwan's Original Scottish export is a premium beer with a delicately sweet flavour, topped off with a roasted malt aroma. That said, I pretty much only drank lager until I had my first pint of McEwans 80/- when I turned 18, so I'm not exactly an expert on the subject. Then I was in Shakespeares about 2 years ago and saw that they had on tap so it's back on the market, but yeah, hard to find. I'm not sure if Export is being brewed in England but it will certainly be canned there as I don't think they do any canning at Caley.If the items have been lost or damaged we will issue a full refund after the 5 working days/courier service confirms.

We apologise if we take a little longer in busier periods and we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. Anyway, I'm delighted to say that I've never knowingly drunk any of the wine brands you mention, so maybe I've escaped this so far. McEwan's stopped making their 80/- about 10 years ago, which broke my heart because it had been my pint of choice since I was about 15.The pump beer, usually CO2, add the fizziness as the beer is being poured from a keg, with no secondary fermentation. The cask ales will continue to be brewed at Caledonian Brewery in Edinburgh and I suspect you'll start to see more of them again as Heineken have done little to support the brands. Less so nowadays for a variety of reasons, but I've been partial to the odd case or two over the years. A beer served on cask has a source of sugar in the cask itself so the live yeast in the beer can continue to ferment and produce CO2, which gives the slight fizz.

Unwanted Food or Drink Products - Once supply conditions are broken, there are a number of factors outside of our control that can affect the quality of a product. You'd probably know tbh, a keg beer has the same sort of mouthfeel you get from a bottle or a can, cask will always have that, for lack of a better word, creaminess, that's pretty striking. I take your point that bottling in the UK or elsewhere needn't necessarily affect the quality of the wine itself, but I must admit I'd still be a bit wary if I saw this on a label.Items not delivered (unless the courier hasn't been able to deliver due to no one being in - they try twice and on 3rd attempt send items back to us) - please allow 5 working days after we are alerted for us to contact our courier services to find out why the parcel hasn't been delivered. I explained myself poorly, I meant I'd have no way of knowing what the difference was in terms of taste. On saying that I've tried a few cans and it is a decent beer, not quite how I remember it - but beer brewed with different water will always be different even if the recipe is the same.

Got a 4 pack from Asda today as I hadn't tried it for a while, saw on the side of the can that it is now brewed and canned in Edinburgh by McEwans Brewing Company and not by Heineken UK who bought over Scottish and Newcastle Breweries.
