    The yard stick to work by is that it is 1 syn to every 20 calories.

    It all depends on the alcohol content! It would wouldn't it . . . as this affects the sugar content and hence the calories. Working on 330ml bottles the average SYNS are roughly as follows:
    Stella / Grolsch = 7.0
    Budweiser = 7.0
    Bud Light = 5.5
    Becks = 6.0

    Draft Spanish Lagers
    Low Strength = 4.0 (<1% alcohol)
    Standard Lager = 6.0 (5% alcohol)
    Medium Lager = 8.0 (6% alcohol)
    Premium Lager = 10.0 (7% alcohol)

    Cruzcampo is I think around 5%.
    Watch out for Mahou - it comes in normal (green) and strong (red).

    They have started selling low alcohol San Miquel in some of the bars here. About 2% and really tasty. Will be nice on a warm summers evening :)

    Thanks for that Niki. I do not drink beer but a shandy made with light tonic hits the spot on a hot evening.

    Iceland are doing light tonic 2 for 1€. A real bargain.

    Not in the wrong place at all.

    It is just that there is a fabulous syns sub forum and so many clever people subscribe to it.

    Have a look at all the sub forums available. This is a fantastic site. You will find everything you need.

    You can start a food diary. Post your weekly WI. Read and share recipes. Take part in the Off Topic sub forum.

    Really worth having a look.

    I have received so much help and support here that I can not imagine not partaking in all the different sub forums.

    I was not being critical or rude just trying to help and not wanting to give any wrong info.

    hugs xxx

    Here in France we have some really good alcohol-free bottled beer (Kronenbourg is just one brand, but Carrefour do a better own-brand one - if I remember correctly, you have Carrefour in Spain?). They work out at about half the syns of an alcoholic one. I can't honestly taste the difference, especially in a shandy.

    Becks non-alcohol lager is lovely and around 3 syns a bottle, I think. You can get it in Carrefour too, but a tad pricey.

    Carrefour's own good by its own?
