Although isn't Green King IPA quite palatible?
I used to like Old Speckled Hen bitter in my college days. Later i graduated to Stella Artois after watching the top blokes on Men Behaving Badly drink it. Peer pressure i guess.
In Kathmandu (after travelling by bicycle far further than Horace), i got into the Tongba's, which is made from damp millet that is left to ferment, and similar to our old mulled wine.
These days i mostly drink red wine. I find it stops me pissing all night.
On a steaming hot day in Cambodia i like a lager in an ice cold frosty glass, that preferably hasn't been sitting next to any human body parts within the last 6 months.
My wife brings me home free German beer from work. I figure it must be good shit as it has the pop off corks.
