Terry K Real Ale v Lager (274* d) RE: Real Ale v Lager 13 Aug 06


I find that most so-called "real ales" are far too strong to appeal to real drinkers. Good session beer of less than 4% is a thing of the past, so if you want "a good drink" you end up with Adnams, London Pride, CBB etc, all of which are around 4.3%, which generally means not feeling all that bright the next day. Hence I go on to lager if it's going to be a heavy session.

It also seems to me that the people who have the most huff 'n puff to say about real ales are the ones who sip their way through a pint in an hour and a half and then leave an inch in the bottom and go home, braging to all their mates about what a drunken blast they had at the weekend. I could go on to mention that most of the bollocks talked about Guinness is talked by those who rarely drink the stuff, but I won't.

One thing I will say - if you can drink instant coffee you really should not really be commenting on matters of taste ........

cheers, Terry
