Hey! You Guys! You don't have any South African beers in the list when they are very highly regarded. Good old Lion Lager and Castle Lager.

English Target hops give this beer a remarkable aroma. Late hopping with Goldings and fermentation by the Brakspear yeast creates a remarkable zesty aroma, a full fruity flavour and a golden colour. All Hops and Barley used in this beer are organically grown and produced.



One of my favourites when I want all the qualities you mention. Discovered it during spring and it's a regular in my "beer batches" Smile

I agree with this. Liefmans is the best kriek. And if you like kriek, I can also recommend gueuze. It is not made with cherries, not even red, but in their other properties these beers have some kinship. Gueuze and kriek are known as lambic or spontaneous fermenting beers.

Tuborg and Carlsberg (sticking to my roots, although Tuborg is harder to find here) preferably, love Keith's Pale Ale too, Rickard's Red goes down like juice, it's also hard to resist, so does Sleeman's Honey Brown, and I do love me a cold nice Blanche De Chambly on a hot summer day too.

Although... I've once had the good luck of enjoying a Pilsner Urquell fresh from the tap in a pub in Prag, and that was probably the best beer I've ever had. Not half as good once exported, I found out later.

I find the exported Pilsner acquires a rather "skunky" taste.

Birch beer? I actually had to look that up... didn't even know that existed. I've had something that I guess is called "spruce beer" in English, and boy that was awful. Does birch beer taste anything like that?

I've never had spruce beer but if it was awful then birch beer wouldn't taste like it. birch beer is a soda that is among my favourites, and I don't even like soda very much.

Birch beer is pretty similar to root beer, but a bit stronger.  I remember once my friend bought some ginger beer since it was cheap and it totally sucked.

Sadly neither beers are what they were - Green King (or Greedy King as they are oft known) have become the pariahs of real ale acting like the Borg of brewers, assimilating dozens of smaller breweries and closing them down. I can never forgive them for what they did to Ruddles County either Cry
