Hogsback TEA

Timothy Taylor's Landlord

Youngs Special London Ale

Brakspear Live Organic

Adnams Bitter

I like your style. I'd have

Fuller's London Porter at #1

Shepherd Neame Jack

London Pride (bottled)

Guinness original

Haggis Hunter

uh maybe not my top five but it's too hard to choose. N

The last two beers I drank were TEA (from a polypin) and Adnams Broadside and I can't think past them!

Also, go to the Hog's back Brewery for the tour, it's great. £8 for about 5 pints and a lesson in the brewing process :D

I'm going to make two lists here- one for the stuff I usually drink, and my top 5 "oddballs", stuff I rarely have often but love.

Regular tipples:

Deuchars IPA- a great pint, especially on a night, where its mild flavour and easy drinking make it a good alternative to lager.

Guinness- Not the new red pish, of course, but I adore it. I used to have a pint after work every night when I was a bar supervisor.

Quilmes- incredibly cheap, incredibly tasty lager that became the standard drink at my flat, along with vodka martinis and cheap scotch. Nailing 6-packs of the stuff is dangerously easy.

Innes & Gunn: Godlike oak-aged beer. I've got a chalice cup for it I nicked out of a bar.

Tennents Lager: No, it's not big or clever, but fuck it, it's not a summer festival without a few warm cans of the stuff in the pouring rain.

And my randoms:

Brew Dog Hop Rocker, The Physics and Punk IPA- I could easily put the entire range down as faves, but when I can get them any of these three rule. Tasty, vulgar, bold.

And the last two, bloody crap PS3 browser...

Anchor Steam Beer: I'd like to sit on a pier drinking this with a bowl of swordfish carbonara and an uninterupted view of the Pacific Ocean, but stuff it, it's not bad as it is.

Brooklyn Lager: The way lager should taste. When I get to NY on holiday I want to do a tour of their bewery.

To be fair, after the heineken leaves such a wretched taste in your gob, Asahi beer just enhances that foul taste.

Sorry how anyone can rightfully put that in a list when it was designed to be bland as f**k is beyond me.

They taste pretty fucking sweet to me.

Cobra is top by a long shot though and then Budvar the same at second. Everything else on that list I'm more than happy to sup if the others arent available.

where do you find your Fullers London Porter? I've only seen it once in Waitrose, bought a few bottles and loved it.

Bath Ales Wild Hare organic pale ale.

Corona with lime.

Lots of more awesome ciders, which have had a huge make-over.

But wine mostly, Malcolm Gluck was on You and Yours last week, and basically showed what a total joke the whole Supermarkets reducing a £10 bottle of wine to less than a fiver was. Its worth listing too.

I buy it in Balham Sainsbury's where it seems to sell well, although it's definitely seasonal. I was so happy when it came back :)

I bought a couple of bottles in Sainsbury's today (I never realised they had such a good range of fine ales) and thoroughly enjoyed them. Lovely stuff.

Yeah sainsbury's is very good for ales! A few months ago in the section that can sell anything from TVs to Halloween tat, they were selling even more varieties in addition to the booze section. Highlights were "Good Times", a summer ale with elderflower and "Trade Winds", a scottish summer ale. Lowlights incldued a porter from none other than Tony Hadley :) (Crazy dog?)

sorry, bit off topic there.
