    Stella/Carlsberg for bottles or tins and Bud/Stella for pints in the pub.

    Not a big beer connisseaur, have tried that Budvar stuff and it's lovely. Don't go out looking for it though.

    Do they do Budweiser out of the tap alot in Ireland?
    It's so rare to get Bud on tap over here, it's usually just in bottles. The bar where I work was one of the only places I knew that did it, but they got rid of it and replaced it with this Japanese stuff, Asahi, which is actually bloody nice.

    Yep, all pubs I go to have it on tap. Stella on the other hand isn't as easily got in some areas.

    Lucky bastard, I love bud out of the tap! :razz:

    Whereas we get Stella everywhere, although I'm not too keen on it.

    Oh good, I just bought a bottle of that to try. I got a bottle of sake for my birthday off my mum, and I was reading about cocktails at work today, and saw one which was sake and beer. And I figured if you're using Japanese wine, you might as well use Japanese beer as well.

    My favourite beers are Kronenberg, Budvar, San Miguel, Leffe, Peroni, all miles better on tap. In fact, I actually don't like San Miguel out of a bottle, and Budvar on tap is lovely.

    My favourite beers are Hoegaarden, Weihenstephan and Leffe (Gold), in that order, however I can't always afford them.

    I can see how people cant dislike Red Strip and Bud, but actually like them? They have next to no taste at all, Red Stripe especially is just fizzy water.

    I've been enjoying Lech in pubs recently, I presume is Eastern European of some sort, knowing my area Polish.

    I dont like all the real ales and what not, to me that has too much taste, and thats not a good thing.

    Bud is refreshing, has (in my opinion) a nice crisp taste, and goes down well.

    That said, I am much more of a wine girl, as you may have noticed at the ball ;)

    Cobra and Kirin Ichiban are the best. Also drink Fosters and if it's ice cold then it tastes lush, although I think it actually tastes better in a can.

    Yes. Absolutely beautiful stuff.

    Having been down in the West Country for the best part of 4 years now, I've developed quite a love for cider. And not that Blackthorn/Strongbow rubbish. Give me a pint of Old Rosie or Black Rat any day.

    All lagers taste the same to me really. Krony Blanc is quite nice.

    Though I do enjoy a drop of ale, particular favourites being Waggledance, anything from the Smiles brewery, Bombadier and Young's is good too.

    Can't stand bitter.

    Old Rosie.

    £2.10 a pint in the Wetherspoons pubs round here. Its 7% and tastes great. Lovely stuff.

    Tbh the only reason I buy pints of it are because it's 5% and will get you fucked quicker as most other beers are like 4%.

    Erm .... I'm a San Miguel girl at heart but I also love Heineken or Carlsberg Export and Stella. Unfortunately all of them make me behave like a knob and so I tend not to drink them.

    I love Guinness and also Burton Bridge's Stairway to Heaven. Neither make me behave like any kind of depraved human being either with them being lower in alcoholic content that those listed above.

    I used to drink Rolling Rock when I was a student and I'm also quite partial to a bottle of Becks.

    MGD or Corona. Its cheap and always on sale. Pretty much the only thing I buy at the store. I know nothing zero zilch about beer.

    But I love getting beer from a localish but not really resturant brewery. They make a delicious hefeweizen and I've yet to find a seasonal (they change about once every month or two) that I don't like. I've never really liked Porters (because I'm american and enjoy my tasteless water) but they make a really good porter.

    Plus they have fun names like buttface :p

    Its sad though, I always hate the taste of my MGD once I get done with a jug of the other stuff, but I always go back to it.

    One of the other lagers that we do on tap where I work.

    I can't be dealing with Hoegaarden though, or many Belgian beers really.

    :yuck: I don't like beer.

    I do have a particular fondness for cider though. A recently acquired one. Even if your 'traditionally brewed' cider does tend to smell a little bit like fart, it tastes pretty good :D
