It's a non-issue to me. I only drink quality beer.

It's fraud that affects millions of consumers. Yeah, I'd say that's a pretty big issue.

I thought that was their business model. Drink local people!

Regardless, it would still be fraud.

Not only can it be considered theft, but people who already know how much they can drink and retain their conflictive functions would be thrown off by the change in content, which can cause a host of other issues.

Not an issue for me. Cow piss tastes similarly to diluted cow piss.

I mean, it's not the end of the world, but at the same time, don't lie either. Needs to be fixed, but not a priority in my book.

I agree, but truth in advertising is necessary.

I agree. There's far worst things going on, but we can do multiple things at once, as society, right?

Just stop buying it. If a company gets sued over the same thing more than once people should probably stop buying the product

I've heard the expression horse pee but it's true, compared to some German beers, let alone British ales, it's watery.

When it comes to labels and ingredient lists on packages of ingestible goods there are worse cases, like not mentioning a possible allergen, but I still think it's a big issue. Don't lie on the package, accurately state what's inside and how much.

A small issue. I don't see anything big in this.
