    I added a nice bottle of Laddie Ten and a Black Bottle to my whisky stock yesterday. I stopped drinking on working days a year ago. Thank God it is weekend!

    I used to drink quite a bit in my teens and twenties - after that I sacked it completely for a couple of years. Then I got addicted to this stuff:



    It's a rare night I don't get through 3 or 4 cans - Guiness will do as a substitute in a pinch, though.

    Well, its Sunday evening and the thirst is upon me.

    I'm staying in and having a couple of good Lagers in front of the telly in a while. Not a 'real ale' type myself.

    What does the term mean anyway, are the rest all fake ale?

    Real ale undergoes a secondary fermentation within its 'vessel of dispense' (eg. Cask or bottle). Other beers have any living yeast killed-off by pasturisation and filtration and are conditioned by the injection of carbon dioxide or other gases.

    One of my favourites and very under rated, IMO. This is what I drink at the pub, if I'm having a 'hauf'n a hauf'.

    I thought that a few years back until I tried some good ones and the varieties available are growing all the time - that fizz you enjoy could be considered the 'fake' one

    Think I'll stick with a good Lager. I like the lightness and cleanness of taste, finding most, so called 'real ales' flat and soapy.

    And, yes, I know some real ales can taste OK.

    There's nothing wrong with non 'real ale' beers, they just taste different.
