Someone said we needed one...

Personally not a huge drinker myself. In fact very rarely drunk, however when I drink I prefer things such as Southern Comfort with Lemonade or Coke. Not really tried that much stuff myself just don't really find being intoxicated is all what it's made out to be personally. Call me a square but I'm not alcohols biggest fan. However it's gotten me into a few more beds than I wouldn't usually so ah well eh...

What do you like to drink?
What occassions, what drink?
Then we can rip each other for being girly or so overtly macho that you are clearly just compensating for the fact that deep down you've always been bi-curious. (Don't worry Sean your secrets safe over here)

I have similar taste in beer to what I have in women:

Asian.

Singha isn't bad but I always preferred Leo (a beer, not a ladyboy) when in Thailand. Chang was avoided.

Beerlao is in my P4P top 3 without doubt, as is a little known brew from Mongolia called Sengur.

Tsing Tao isn't bad although most other Chinese beer is pretty bad.

I know that all of these would be classed as lager in England and the CAMRA members will pour scorn on me, but these are much easier to drink when the temperature is 30 and over so 'dark beer' isn't half as popular over here.

Never really been a spirits man either, especially the 55% rice whisky they get hammered with here. That stuff is vile. If you ever come to China and get offered 'white wine', don't expect it to be Sauvignon blanc. thumbsup

p.s. nearly forgot... there is a bar selling imported Belgian beers where I live too. From what I've tried, Duvel is the best of those.

I'll have to keep an eye out for those if I'm in those parts of the world, Il Gialloblu.

Shamensko is a Bulgarian lager that I enjoy when I'm over there.

Jeez, Alex. In a strange way, I admire your courage. You admit to working in HR, you write an Adrian Mole post about your broken heart and now you fess up to drinking Southern Comfort. And you have the cheek to call me Tina.

As for the question, red wine, and copious amounts of it at the weekend. I like a nice beer as much as the next person but reading Scotty's posts yesterday, he is clearly our resident expert on the matter so I will leave that one to him.

Being from Bristol also a massive fan of cider, there's one called pheasant plucker, which gets increasingly hard to say after a few, that is awesome. If you ever get a chance try a pint.

Not really fussy myself. Generally make a decsion based on price. Key is to always look at the price per litre as opposed to the head turning deals.

Aldi do a cider called Taurus. It's 4 x cans for £2.09 which equates to 84p per litre. I don't think that can be beaten (down south) at the moment unless you drink out of 2/3 litre plastic bottles.

Thinking of setting up my own micro brewery at the moment. I reckon I get through about 30 - 40 pints a week so it would be much more cost efficient even over the short term.

In all seriousness you're wrong. They have a good wine selection, plenty of bottled real ales and an array of lagers from all parts. Taurus is their budget drink for Alchies. It is fine as long as you brush your teeth regularly and don't mind the occasional stomach cramp.

I've had Mount Gay, not really a style I like, almost like a Havana Club Extra Viejo if I remember right? Prefer the Havana 7.

Yeah very similar, I had a great rum not too long back. It was from Venezula, but I brought it in an airport in Egypt, and I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called.

Excellent taste my friend, and Duvel is a particularly excellent drink. I prefer Chimay Red of the range though.

Newcastle Brown is another favourite of mine, but it seems to make people aggressive. A friend of mine punched a hole in his kitchen wall after a few of them.

As for lager I can more or less chop and change and they all seem to be the same to me...at the moment given the choice I'd go for a Heineken.

There's also a beer called Brooklyn that I'm pretty into at the moment, an acquired taste, very malty, but I can't get enough of it right now.

Non-beer wise I'd take a Jack Daniels and coke...

Wasn't really sure about the red sodhat. Almost a beer/wine hybrid I thought, and far too fizzy.

Brooklyn is great, possibly my favourite lager(ish). Mentioned it on the other thread. Hoppy more than malty though.

I came across a drink in the summer called reddy's ( i think). It is a fruity lager sort of thing. Lovely tipple to have on a balmy summer's evening.

I knew hoppy was the word I was looking for! But yes I had it at Giraffe a few months ago and noticed Tesco sell it too so I stocked up big style.

Have you come across Westmalle Triple? I'm sure you have, but I was a big fan of that last time I had it but it knocked me for six with it's ABV. Generally a night at the Dutch bar will be paid for the morning after though.

Hoegarden does have a very unusual taste, but I actually quite like it.

Notice a few Belgian classics on there Scott. Have you tried Bruges Zot? It's the last remaining trappist beer actually brewed exlusively in Bruges/Brugge (there's a good brewery tour if you ever go there) and is absolutely delicious.

Sierra Nevada's not a bad shout either, if you find yourself in the States that is, as it's a massive improvement on the urine-water they usually purvey over there (think anything that comes in a 'Light' version). Sam Adams is another option.

For Brit ales you can't beat Bombadier in my opinion, with Speckled Hen and Doom Bar close runners up and Honeydew a summery alternative.

Got to say I love my wines though, if it's red it's got to be New World. Chilean Pinot Noirs and South African Pinotage being my favourites. Drinking a Conor Sur rioja at the moment, also from Chile, which has fantastic depth of flavour and is very drinkable indeed! For whites I'm a little indifferent but generally like South African chardonnays or maybe Chenin Blanc, the Jordan winery is a particular favourite.

A little wine shop in a town near me called Hitchin. Met the guy that owns it at a works do. His company were catering and when he told me where his shop was, it turned out it was only 20 minutes down the road. He is a genuine expert and I follow his advice on what is a good wine and good vintage as and when they arrive. We are good friends now and he is yet to let me down. It is very pricey, but he does me a good deal most of the time. You can get great wines in supermarkets now though, the days of crappy supermarket wines are long gone. Seany is right about Aldi, if you want a dead easy red wine to drink, they do a fantastic Pinot Noir that is dirt cheap but lovely to knock back if you just want something quick and easy. Obviously I try very hard to avoid been seen in Aldi, but sometimes needs must.

I just want it to be known that I am not interested in 'I know more about fine wines than you' and 'I know more obscure ales than you', if I didn't say anything my lack of interest would not be apparent, I might just be busy. I am simply making my position clear.

To prove I am not a philistine I will share with you all the facts that I have the occasional can of Fosters on a weekend, and my cupboard is never without a bottle of Chairman's Reserve St Lucian rum, as it instantly transports me back to the Caribbean beach upon which I was married last year.

I do not drink wine, I do not like the taste of it and I think that people who pretend that they do are simply playing up to what they feel is expected of them, in a kind of Emperor's New Clothes way. I feel the same about modern art, but I'll save that rant for the modern art thread when it inevitably appears.

You're still here then?

So I am "pretending" I like the taste of wine. How very condescending of you, Union. I shall bear your thoughts in mind next time I go alcohol shopping, and not buy any wine for fear of upsetting you.

You really haven't been the same recently, Union. I think a combination of TRUSSMAN and Blue Kia Picanto man have withered you away.

Still a big fan of your work, though.

I don't particularly like it more than any other, although it's distinctive hoppy aroma swims over the nasal receptors like a swirling leaf caught on the breeze on a hazy late summer afternoon, with a farmer ploughing his field in the middle distance, and swallows swooping down from up high to snatch small winged insects from the air, filling their tiny swallow tummies for the long journey to Africa that lies ahead of them.

Also, it's £3 for 4 cans in Asda.

I can take it out of a can but not from draught. It's the other way round with Carling for some reason.

So much anger, can't believe a young chap in a car can create such bile. Is it the Strictly thread Union, has it made you face up to some long buried feelings? Please share, you're a shell of the man you used to be at the minute.

Anger? Bile? It was simply a Jilly Goolden-esque critique of my favourite lager.

Did you know that Robbie Savage broke his nose when he slid into and kissed the camera last Saturday?

It was all going so well, you do seem overly keen to tell us you're not a homosexual Union, as Truss would put it you doth protest a little too much.

Juniper or whatever the staple Brussels beer is good, makes our staple lager taste even more like rats urine.

VB is another favourite of mine, although is hard to come buy unless you're in the convicts bar (walkabout).

Just stick to Carlsberg though for session drinking, for some reason i actually quite like it.
