Don't you find that a little too bitter? What about Fuller's London Pride? What about Director's Ale?

My problem is that I really love beer. So, I'd like to be able to drink lots of it. So that means finding beers with a decent taste without having too much alcohol content. Either way I find that with the higher alcohol beers the alcohol itself starts to interfere with the taste.

Not really although I know where you are coming from. It depends on what beers you drink either side :wink: .
I'm not familiar with London Pride but yes Directors is a very nice pint. I also had a bottle of KingGoblin the other night and that wasn't too strong tasting / bitter tasting either and that one is 6.6%.
I grew up on Marston's Pedigree and Bass as I was raised just outside of the brewing capital of the world, Burton On Trent (where the hell is that I hear you ask :mrgreen: )

In terms of nice tasting ones that aren't too strong I suggest any of the Badger range, Fursty Ferret etc..... Also, do try Marstons Pedigree, Oyster Stout and Old Empire too - fantastic bottled beers.
Also Jennings Cumbrian Ale.

Happy drinking

WICKÜLER PILSENER - the one with the Three Musketeers. Good and not too expensive.

I've just spent Xmas in the UK. Two of those various 500ml bottled beers cost around £3.00 in Asda. Now I'm stuck back in OZ for a few years I've been trying to find beer similar in taste to what I was trying over there. Here, one of those various 500ml bottled beers costs the equivalent of around £3.50. Bugger me - the importers, it seems, are literally doing that.

I can get Tetley's and Guinness fairly cheap. Lately I've been able to get John Smith's for about £2.20 a 500ml can and sometimes on special for about £1.80, so I'm telling myself it's yum.

Some of the local beers aren't too bad, but the specialist ones can get quite expensive.

That's no good. Here in the UK the larger supermarkets import beers from all over the world and they can be pretty well priced alongside Stella and 1664 etc

I pretend to be Col. Kurtz reading poetry to Capt. Willard before throwing a book at Dennis Hopper.

*Computer: Do a cross check of all U.S. films that feature scenes with pistachios.

The drum and his wife (lucky lady) have a homemade spaghetti bolognese for dinner this evening that I made and froze at the weekend.
I brought Heinz spag bol to work yesterday to have on toast for lunch but ended up going to the Crispy Cod (use your imagination) instead so now I have for that for today's lunch.
Is spag bol twice in a day bad?
