Also you reckon you could get Dirtwolf in the UK? The ratings for this look good. 95% from almost 6,000 votes.

Slovakia, as they were all imported it was pretty expensive. Just a treat to myself.

I imagine you'd be able to get it somewhere though it'll most likely be pricey. I would recommend trying it though. There must be a website you can order this kind of stuff from.

Were you hungover then Ste?

About 90% of all beers in Germany are pilsener. They are fine but taste all the same. You can easily go beer shopping with your eyes shut.

Of course there are other brews, too. In fact, there are MANY other beers here but you have to find them first, which is not too easy. They are all produced in limited quantities and you can only find them locally. Nowadays the internet offers you another opportunity of getting beers of any art and origin but only if you're looking for some (e.g. purpose shops) and at a price where no one would pounce just for thirst's sake.

Boring doesn't mean bad, after all.

Just picked up a bottle of Grand Mayan Tequila. It's a tasty, sipping tequila, not something you will want to drink a lot of or use in mixed drinks.

Read this article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/z3wkwmn?int ... nder_guide" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Essentially, while dehydration can contribute, a hangover is mainly the result of your liver processing alcohol into acetyaldehyde, which is toxic.

The body needs cysteine in order to process the acetyaldehyde and stop the effects. Eggs contain a lot of cysteine, as do most high-protein foods, including ricotta, cottage cheese, yoghurt, pork, sausage meat, chicken, turkey, duck, wheat germ, granola, and oat flakes.

So essentially, science is telling you to have a fry up afterwards.

I've tried it, it's strong as fornicate, and quite a heavy pissed, but i thought it was okay up until this point. I think.

I know a guy that tracked it down for ages because he'd drank it in Africa somewhere and was disappointed because he said it didn't taste the same. I asked if he'd had it on draft, but he said he'd drank it out of bottles.

FAO: Peas, Hobgoblin is nice. Would recommend strongly.

2 x Hobgoblin, 2 x Bombardier. Anyone ever tried Bombardier?

Why do off licenses and pubs sell Carling, Carlsberg, Fosters etc when this shit is available? English beer is fornicate good. Would pay a little extra to not have to go to supermarkets to get this.

Bombardier is nice too.

We've had a micro-pub open near me, they do loads of craft ales on draft, but most of the pubs round here will at least have one or two ales on draft. I go to a place over in Cheshire called the Swan with 2 Nicks, they do a full menu of ales. I make it my duty to plough through the list, i usually succeed and end up wasted by the time i'm going though it for a second time.

Cool mate, I shall give it a go. Yeah it's a bit baffling. Some people find lager alright cause it's inoffensive and gets them drunk. I know plenty of people who think it's pretentious to drink anything else. I'm no expert but beer with flavour>shit lager.

Promptly recognised Franconian dialect reading the names. Bamberg said it all. Weizen is a wheat beer and Märzen is a kind of strong lager. Big fan of the former. Tried them yourself?

I did, but despite your astute observations, you missed the key point from the label.

Anyone tried Hobgoblin Gold?

Tastes (and smells) like weed. I'm assuming that's the hoppiness?

Exactly. It's smoked beer. They smoke the cereals before making it. Gives it a lovely flavour.

Making my own alcoholic ginger beer too. Halfway through the growing phase, fermenting starts on Friday, then bottling on Monday.
