Re: Someone has to tell you...
Definition of pilsner can be simplified to over-hopped lager.
So like lager but slightly less abhorrent.
Lager being the drink that suits the breweries more than the consumer because it is cheap and easy to make, store, transport and dispense. So marketing teams convinced chavs that there are such things as "premium lagers" (meaning generic lager with marketing and costing more) and it's really good business.... such is life.
