Fake Lager

Can anyone point me in the direction of a list of who brews the insipid
yellow liquid that passes for Lager in the uk?
I know that Fosters is not Australian but comes from Moss Side!
Carlsberg is not Danish but comes from Nottingham and Kronenbourg 1664 is
manufactured by S&N in a fizz factory in Reading!
But what of all the others that suggest Germany, Austria or Bavaria

I'm not sure about the rest of it, but then that's not surprising, because I don't drink it, under any circumstances.
If ever I do find myself in the mood for something lager-like, there are several decent bottled Continental ones available now, and if you buy them at Wetherspoons they're reasonably priced, too.

Northampton. Right at the side of the River Nene, possibly extracting liquid direct and adding a few nasty bits.

The message from Mike Roebuck contains these words:
Here in Scotland there is a 'real-ale' lager called 'Scheihallion' but I can't remember who brews it. It is not a bad pint too.

The Tetleys brewery in Leeds plays host to a demon of lager - not sure if it's Carling or Carlsberg but it's a C word certainly! ;)

Carling's brewed in Burton on Trent, as is that true American beer, Coors.......!

I had a pint of Tetley cask ale on Saturday and strangely enough it was rather tasty. I guess they can make something drinkable when they try.

Or that matter even more exotic ones - Cobra was brewed in Poland (but now, I believe, the UK).
Still, aren't the export verions of some of the beers you mention brewed in their home countries?
