Boak & Bailey's Beer Blog - Writing about beer and pubs since 2007 (http://boakandbailey.com)
Pistonhead Lager from Sweden’s Brutal Brewing seems, superficially, to be ‘well craft’.It comes in a can.
A tiny, expensive*can (http://boakandbailey.com/2014/06/craft-can-means/),*bedecked with cartoon skulls, stylish typography and lifestyle rhetoric: “Pistonhead supports live music, Rock n Roll attitudes and good times.”
And yet it tastes… like Carling. That is, fine, but with a nasty edge in the*warm dregs.
It’s bland*beer targeted at*people who don’t want to*look like they drink*bland beer — some of the BrewDog attitude without the flavour*to back it up.
We’re bracing for more of this kind of thing in years to come.
