Thanks Pooh, how's your back now? I used to think British beer was the best cure for any ailment. If it doesn't work, just double the dose!
Double the dose????
Yeah well you would HAVE to with english beer hey
Ohhhhhhhh ... is that the time? Gotta run
I met many an American on my travels who bragged how much stronger and better American beer was over English beer. I was more than happy to test this theory with them and, bearing in mind that the best available in forn climes back then was Watney's Red Barrel, had to carry each and every one of them home before half the evening was spent!
Regrettably, I only have experience of XXXX and Fosters as Aussie beers (which, I think, are brewed over here) but am willing to concede that the true Australian beverage might come close in comparison to a traditional English Real Ale drawn from the cask which, contrary to popular misconception, should NOT be served warm.
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
