    Can’t beat a good wheat beer. Liking Erdinger at the moment.

    As good as beer gets?

    Yes, the Schiehallion was very nice. The Coors was not.

    Now thinking about something darker for tomorrow evening. Remember many years ago enjoying more than a few pints of Draft Young’s double chocolate stout in a pub called The Britannia in Kensington and getting into a heated discussion with some guy called Brian Sewell…whoever he was. I sense my NE ‘teuchter’ accent was a challenge for him.

    Orkney? Skull splitter- no false advertising there.
    Was drinking Staropramen tonight- nice.
    Any of the West beers are good but not sure if you can get them bottled!

    Skull Splitter…..no!

    Need a lighter beer.

    In my early 20’s went out on Xmas eve and consumed too many pints of said brew…..never really saw Xmas day…

    Any of you chaps tried any of the Brewdog stuff? Tactical Nuclear Penguin…..Lordy!!!

    Just drank a couple of beers…

    Orkney Northern Light

    Orkney Atlas Latitude

    Harvieston Schiehallion

    Coors Light which was Damme cold….probably just as well…..

    So, I’m finding I’m enjoying a lighter beer, so recommend me a nice lager or pilsner to enjoy. Must be available in a bottle.

    A pale, strongly hopped session bitter with about 3.8 is what you seem to need. Get a bottle of Copper Dragon’s very excellent Golden Pippin or Moorhouses superb Blonde Witch. This kind of beer-heading-towards-lager-territory is very fashionable at the moment and most brewers have produced one, usually they have a name like Dizzy Blonde or similar.

    Meantime make some lovely ‘propper’ lagers. Had a bottle of Budvar Bud last night which had some flavour to it.

    On the light bitter front JHB from Oakham is a firm favorite. Cairngorm’s Triadwinds is also really worth seeking out.

    Cheers,
    Jamie

    If you can find a mama shop in an area where there are lots of Africans you ought to try some of Africa’s greatest lagers, Star and Gulder from Nigeria and Tusker or Whitecap from Kenya are superb.

    Either of the Calvors Suffolk lagers the 3.8 is a good session beer, the 5.0 is a good pint too. I found the dark and amber versions a bit cack though.
    A brewed in Germany Bier is also good at thirst quenching.

    The two best I have had recently are the Mikkeller Czechet Pilsner and the Goller Kellerbier. Both very nice. I am a big fan of Vienna style lagers and the Thornbridge Kill Your Darlings is the best I have tried for a while.

    Vedett is beautiful. And has a mental website http://vedett.be/

    German Pilsner

    Peroni’s my favourite lager, they really should start making it in tins! If not Peroni then Stella of course, then Carlsberg Export. I also enjoy Leffe and Erdinger.
    Lovely lovely lager, down my neck, yum yum yum!

    Peroni is good, putting it in a tin would change it though.
    I like those cheap little French stubbies from supermarkets.

    Saltaire Blonde / Cascade Pale Ale is as close to lager as I’d want to get

    Latitude and northern light are good Pale Ales, as is the Cairngorm Tradewinds mentioned already. If you like that style there are heaps to try, including Brewdog Dead Pony Club. American style pale ales tend to be hoppier and I really like that.

    Badger Golden Glory and Golden Champion are lovely light summery beers that are quite lager like… interesting flavours and worth a try.

    There is no excuse for drinking Coors 👿

    Cotswold lager, especially on tap. Not too fizzy.

    Yunki: This is a thread about lager, not a thread about showing off your pseudo nicheness.

    Are you mad??!!

    EVERY thread on this forum is about showing off one’s nicheness! 😉

    lovely on a hot day:

    London Fields : Unfiltered Lager
    Meantime : London Lager

    heard good things about

    Thornbridge : Tzara

    for a fuller flavour move onto:

    Racer 5 IPA

    There really is no excuse for Coors.

    Brooklyn Lager (as pointed out by chakaping) is nice, some of the pale ales that messiah has mentioned would be good, too.

    There are some reasonable Spanish lagers, too – Ambar Export for example. Not sure about availability in the UK though.

    Fraoch Heather Ale is a good one to try for any ale-curious lager drinkers.

    Ditto Badger Golden Champion.

    available from your local co-op or, direct….

    almost forgot Yorkshire lager recently appeared at a local eatery, on draught. Very tasty. You can also order direct.
