    River Cottage Stinger Ale (a nettle ale, subtle citrus flavour) - in conjunction with Badger Ales, 4.5%. Very tasty and great aroma too. A smorgasbord for the senses

    I can't say I care much for the old 'wife beater' Rob! I'm definitely a fan of the dark stuff

    Man, I love the Stella, but it goes down so fast. Not keen on ales to be honest, never really floated my boat.

    When I was younger I had that problem. 5 pints of Stella and then I'd wonder why I got p---ed so fast! Then I realised. 4.7% versus 3.5% for a decent bitter Strong beers though are the best, and porters

    Rob,

    You need to try some decent pils type beers. Stella aint one of them!

    In the pubs you might be lucky to find Budvar from the Czech Republic. That's a step in the right direction. Then you've got a whole range of German stuff.

    Veltins pils from Dusseldorf is one of my faves or Augustiner from Munich.

    I'm less keen on the dark versions of Czech/Slovak beers with one exception - Martinsky Porter from the Slovak town of Martin.
