Sounds like the beer is freeze distilled, kegged and then the pub uses somthing to mix the freeze distilled beer with water during dispense I think.

Just noticed this too - https://www.scientificamerican.com/arti ... footprint/ from 2021, but they're using RO for concentrating it

I imagine it would have the same problem of Coke etc served from a dispenser which mixes syrup with water and, in some pubs, all you can taste is chlorine. Anyway, it's nothing new, some pubs have been serving watered down beer for years ;-)

Interesting video though, cheers!

A old local phrase...
"The beer in this pub is like having a wee in a punt... pissing close to water!"
