I can't wait to get a pint of 80/- when I get back; it might very well be one of the first things I do.
apart from the cost of the beers
safe home :)
DRINK ON MY WAYWARD SON :)
its going to be isnt it
Blue Moon is pretty tasty... I always forget the names until I see the pumps
my fav Larger is Oranjeboom, its nice n cheap (the cheapest tinny usually in one of the last beers sold 6 for 5 pounds here) and tasty
I used to live next to the brewery, and my flat used to fill with that lovely malty hoppy smell when they were brewing. mmmm.
and not that Mcewans shite?
though at a stretch mcewans will satiate my needs. I've been drink LITE beer for months :(
red stripe was my 'caribbean' soul speaking.
peroni is actually the nicest (wish i was an attractive italian like the adverts).
all the pints had gone up by 10p AGAIN !
and i mean they'd gone up 10p since last night, it's not like i haven't been in months.
but smithwicks is very similar
Partial to pale ales too, like Summer Lightning and shit. I'm happy with anything really. Gimme a Belgian dubbel, stat.
i went to a pub in belgium that would only serve you three times, because their only beer was like 13%.
and they gave you cheese with each drink.
i like belgium.
Belgium sounds amazing, why on earth have I not been?
it's fantastic; bruges is the best.
we went in january, so the canals were frozen over, but the canal tours sound like the most incredible thing. such a pretty city <3
hoegaarden is the standard weissbier in london i guess, had a much nicer and less sickly one in berlin...i'll try and find out what it was called.
But I look for American IPAs in general - Goose Island, especially, Snake Dog when I want to die.
For the general brands on tap in most bars, um, anything. They all taste much the same (mildly shit).
And Harviestoun Old Engine Oil isn't far behind.
Love me some dark beers.
amazingly smooth Mexican beer.
Innis & Gunn, real smooth, almost sweet.
Diebels Alt, when I'm in Germany.
and have noticed it around more and more since then.
A very tasty drop, for sure.
serve chilled, has a hint of ginger.
otherwise, whatever's on 2 for £3 / 3 for £4 at Sainsbury's. Not settled on a favourite.
Tanglefoot, Fursty Ferret and Golden Champion to name three. Great stuff.
So I'm currently subsisting on a liquid diet of:
It's a hard life (for my kidneys)
I'm going to to the brussels beer festival this year, hopefully won't be a repeat performance.
generally make super-good ales
outside of standard ale sphere, Innis & Gunn's standard one is incredible.
some of the best beers i ever had were on the american west coast. if you're ever out there and see Alaskan Amber, drink it, it's amazing. standard stuff like Sierra Nevada and Anchor brewery stuff, and if you're ever in BC, Vancouver Island brewery
Used to work in Henley, and the majority of the pubs there are Brakspear's - plenty of lunchtime beers.
Love Innis & Gunn too
returning from California (and even to an extent New York) beer wise was a very pleasing and surprising experience. would go again.
as long as they cask it right, and don't run it through the same lines as Irrelevant Badger or any Bedfordshire I.P.as like GlansFlicker or old Old OLD tree
something like Bellamy's Broken Bone Xylophone or Goose Cancer if I'm in Suffolk
JHB (by Oakham Ales). Really good.
Two sips, nearly fell over. So that's obviously my new favourite.
I know it tastes like shite, but one of the things i relish most about going home is having a pint of Council lager (aka safety lager, aka tennent's.)
Temptation by Durham Brewery.
OH YEAH BITCHES
Glad it's becoming more available here. Likewise Estrella Damm
I think I'm alone in this observation, but I think the topnote of it is lychee- really sour and citrusy but not bitter.
Yum. it must surely be time for drinking now?
St Austell Tribute (but Proper Job and Trewlawny are both nice too)
Darkstar Sunburst (sooo many nice ales to choose from-great brewery)
Of the lagers, I'll generally go for Heineken but will enjoy a nice Eastern European one like Kozel or Tyskie if I'm in spoons.
