It’s probably the stuff made in Poland. Which is even worse.

Here’s my bug. It’s NOT Plzen water in the brew, and yet the name they call it "Pilsner Urquell" translates to "Plzen Original Source." How can it still be ’original’ if the ’source’ is not? Quelle even means water in German - this implies the water came out of the ground in Plzen, not Poland or Russia or a former East-bloc nuclear testing site. It’s stupid. Does the new can say ’Product of Poland" because I think it really should.

I’m quitting this beer, unless I see it in another form.
