One of those Beer Hawk perfect draft machines, arrived over the weekend. Six litre keg of Stella with it. 
 

Tastes pretty good, although my loon (who has worked as a barman) just laughs when my pint is more like a cornetto.

The Lowenbrau and the triple K are both excellent depending on what strength of beer you like

North European. Danish, German, Dutch, Belgian. Just the normal off the shelf stuff around 5-6%. That Triple K @ 8% looks good. Currently out of stock though.

Does it work out cheaper than buying the tins? £1.35 a pint in Lidl.

Just googled, pints are more than twice the price with a machine, £2.90, plus the cost of the machine. Why would anyone bother? Not having a go, just a question.

It was my 20 year old loon that wanted it. Quite expensive as the machine was +£200 and then £30-£40 for a 6 litre keg (around 10.5 pints). A fiver back per keg when you return them empty. 

But I have to say, it is really good. Basically a draft beer kept at 3 degrees celcius and as good as a pub.

So they can look like a fud while they pour  9 pints at £3+ each in their own house before having to change the keg and then wait for it to chill. 
 

Absolute mugs.

You'd have to clean the machine as well. Proper chilled can of Stella is as good as a draft one. Each to their own like, they look pretty good. Not for me.

Works out at around £2.20 a pint but is really good. All about what suits your taste.
