Haha! Many a pale ale!...then again, the name of the ale escapes my memory but this chaps belly was certainly one to remember on a trip to the U.K. many years ago. I've got to believe it took many a pint and fierce determination to grow a belly such as this one, saints be praised !!
i am drinking hard cider that i press and ferment myself,
i call this "peach cider" though technically to be cider it's got
to have apple in it. i make tons of hard apple cider too, but
the peach is my favorite by far, i make it nice and dry but
it has lots of pure peach aftertaste....
I’m gonna have to pick your brain on this, could be part of agenda if I was to visit around there.This thread is painful, I gave up beer a while back because I am prone to gout and it both triggers it and raises the likelihood of it being triggered by other things.
I used to brew my own, hunt down new flavours, beer tours of Europe and even visited that monastery in Belgium where you make an appointment with the monks and they bring you a their wares. Has been voted the best beer in the world apparently.....................
Oh, i just googled it (Westvleteren), apparently its only the second best beer in the world now, terrible how things go down hill so fast I went there twice and I have to say, its really very nice beer indeed ! You have to place your order on a certain day when they are allowed to speak but when you turn up they are not allowed to make a sound, they just silently load up the car. If anything goes wrong I have no idea how it gets resolved !!
But now, since giving up is just fucking strongbow bullshit fizzy pop cider, no beer allowed
(I am also testing the swear filter so forgive me)
I would love a paulaner weissbier, a pint of oscar wilde dark mild, darkstar imperial stout or even a "bavarian" pilsner which is surprisingly good for a supermarket pilsner but no, cider only for me now.
Am I bitter ? No, I am not allowed that either
 oh, no swear filter, I will check the rules tomorrow.
