Best German beer on excersise

#1
For me it has to be the small tins of Hansa Pils bought from Aldi in the the 80s. you could fit around 9-10 in one charge container, times that by about 16ish (old age has diminished the memory of how many ready round charge bins where behind the gun) and that gives you a lot of beer, beer for breakfast, beer for lunch, beer for tea, beer for radio stag in fact beer all day. those were the days my friends

Herforder 10 packs - shiite beer, but conveniently sized to be both currency and carry out friendly.

'Yeller handbags' were okay spose!! For us, couldn't beat Paderborner silvertops!!!! Aldi beer??? Gnat's p*ss!!!!! Mind you, Paderborner was so popular with us, Aldi by the Sudring in Paderborn started to stock it for us!! Best of both worlds, the beer AND the price!

Herforder Shiiiite beer? 1 RTR's first exercise after we arrived in Herford in 1976 introduced us to something called horsy or pony bier. That was the worst of the worst!! There was nearly a mutiny & every SQMS from then on took a full 4 tonne truck full of Herforder out on scheme. I agree the Paderborner is a top quality beer but Herforder crap?. maybe the export with the green stripe on it, but the pils (red stripe) is nectar.

Paderborner pils in the snobby bottle with the pull off top was great, Soltau the hansa pils (snacksize) or Bocholts would be a beer of choice, anything other than that filth that "Wolfgang" used to peddle on his vans!

Mind you "all beer is good beer, it is just that some beers are better than others"

Wolfgangs a LEGEND
That FILTH got me through many a wet Soltau exercise and tasted like the best beer in the world until I could get back to camp for Warsteiner and Weisen bier. :pissed:

Crap in green and red cans...that would be Kestrel and McEwans export!! Brown cans I can't help you with...Broon is feckin lovely man!

Now on a more serious note, the green stuff in Poland is Lech. Red is Zywiec I think. Brown? Not sure, it is a long time since I last visited the fine training areas of Poland...

We only ever took ´green eggs´on ex,cans of Carlsberg,I honestly can´t remember any other beer being taken!

The only exception I can think of was the RSM´s Ferret driver Ginge Bayneham(RIP),who lived on a diet of Becks.The RSMs quickly learnt that they had to arrange their cooking arrangements or starve,as there wasn´t enough stowage for his ´stash´and compo.

Apparently one day the ferret breaks down and the RSM wants to know why Ginge can´t fix it himself,`Tools,fcuking tools,ever tried drinking fcuking tools,next time your thirsty suck on a fcuking spanner!`

Hello Bluebell this is.......................

Tiny's right, Pony beer was effing Pony!! Best schemey beer - Stumpy bottles of Heinekin as we used to get in Osnatraz - couldn't drink it in camp but on ex it seemed to taste a whole lot better.
