yes, its 4.8% and anybody I knew who drank it thought it was grand. Unlike the old stronger stella out years ago which had a peculiar taste to it which some did not like. This stuff is quite generic tasting. Only problem is my tesco never have it in trays, only loose cans, and often only 1 trays worth on the shelf.

It's acceptable to most tastes but if in doubt buy 1 or 2 as a trial.

That somewhat eccentric merchandising must be based on some logic.
Does anyone know why they do that?

SuperValu Kilcock have 6 bottle cases of Whispering Angel 2019 Cotes de Provence Rose for €30. Assumed it was muck so googled it. Apparently it's an excellent Rosé and is the most popular Rosé in the United States. Gets excellent reviews and I've read that this exact wine is supplied as a high end wine to high end hotels so would want to be excellent.

I checked prices in Ireland and it averages at €30 to €35 PER BOTTLE. A case of it from Amazon is £115 plus £15 P&P which works out around €150 or €30 a bottle.

This is the best value booze deal I've seen in a long time!

One for craft beer fans... Marks and Spencer have various beers in a 3 for €7 deal, including Beavertown’s Gamma Ray and Lupuloid. Lupuloid is usually over 4 euro a can in most places.

That is an unreal deal. I paid nearly 6 pound sterling for a can of Lupoloid in a bar in London a few years back.

Turns out this was a pricing error. Price was €30 PER BOTTLE yesterday so I got 5 free bottles of good wine, saved €150
