Does it actually get sold in England ever?
Also I've never tried it during my trips to Scotland, how bad is it?
but it is only a few grades up from the water stuck in a glass that was put in the dishwasher the wrong way round.
It is magic.
It doesn't taste anywhere near as bad as you'd think, and it produces an absolutely spectacular drunkenness.
Be careful though - it makes you feel invincible. Perfect for polite, mild-mannered chaps like me, but if you're prone to violence then I'd take it easy...
can't comment on the rest of England though
It's nicest when ice cold and absolutely horrendous at room temperature, also has quite a high caffeine content
if you're ever in anyone's company who drinks or attempts to drink 2 bottles or more in one night, stay well out of their way for the rest of the evening as it seems to induce a kinda mania i've never seen any other type of alcohol replicate
Thunderbird, Special Brew, and Tennents Super. I like to get tanked up on a cocktail of these and sit on the benches outside the library of an afternoon abusing the passers-by.
...that's there's no known aphrodisiac more powerful to a Scotsman than the smell of Buckfast on a young lady's breath.
Enduring image. Enduring smell...
in that it smells of vom. URGH.
I had soime in sleazys on sunday night. I gave it to some friends fomr manchester that I was with and they were very happy and we stayed up till 9am dressing my pugs up in outfits.
It's not cheap any more (usually £7.50, I think) but definitely worth it on occasion; crazy, crazy stuff. Was recently at an all night BYOB event situated extremely close to a 24 hour stockist. That ended well.
everyone drank either buckfast or the slightly cheaper Merrydown (gold label, never silver label). I went for Merrydown, and as such never became a regular buckfast drinker. It's not completely horrendous though, if it's cold.
Then I went back for another gulp and it was fucking horrible.
wreck the hoose jooce
It's a pretty amazing beer!
It's not as good as Magnum Tonic Wine you buy in London though -
