A very happy St Georges day to all our southern Britain members.

And what have our Geordies and Scousers etcetera done to you Maxi? :cry:
it's their day as well, perhaps you can be forgiven for the Scousers though, after all Liverpool is the capital of Ireland :p

But you forget Slim Northern Briatain was the name gioven to Scotland by the English when they tried to destroy our heritage, thus Sourthern Briatain must be England, so I did include the Geordies and Scouisers, nice shaps that they are. To us south starts about the Tweed.

What are the options for a few beers tonight? I usually drink Fosters but that's obviously an Aussie tipple, so what can I drink that's English? All I can think of so far is Carling, but that's absolute gash so I could do with an alternative.

This, of course (link):

£27 a case?! Fcuk that, I'll choke down some Carling! As for the comment regarding Cider, the local pubs around my way only tend to stock the likes of Magners (Irish) and Bulmers (No idea where it originates), neither of which I consider to be a proper cider at all so its gonna have to be beer or nowt.

JD Wetherspoon (I know there's been varied press lately) has a real ale festival on in its' pubs 15 Apr to 04 May. There's normally some good English brews in there.

Bulmers is from the West Country. Is there no draught Strongbow or Blackthorn at least? Not the best, but English.
We do have the usual suspects such as Strongbow but that's not a 'real' cider, and in my opinion tastes like p1ss. I think Bulmers is the best bet if it has to be cider, its better than Carling and all other ciders that are easily available.

Duly noted, we have a Wetherspoons locally so I'll give a couple of the guest ales a try.

Tommo,
Rattlers good, but I've never seen it outside of Cornwall in a pub, and very few off licenses either.
Aye one of our best kept treasures down here lol

However you can order it direct from the website

How about this although it's not exactly English?

Jimmy,
Yes, I've tried a few and while they're okay to taste, well they're just not English are they! Can you imagine the Wurzels knocking back gallons of Jaques fruit cider or that St. something or other? Would never happen.

Pete_N,
In fact I've just realised, most Wetherspoons DID, so probably still do, stock Henry Weston's ciders in bottle. Not the Special Vintage that's available in supermarkets and is their best one (V strong though at 8.2 ABV), but they do 2 or 3 "real" ciders that are better than most available in pubs.
