All of them taste like muck - and I avoid bars that don't make an effeort.
However, if you go in to a large enough Tesco who would be more congnisant of the changing times when it comes to beer/food consumption, they have a range of craft beers. If you also go in to Malloys off-licence, , O'Briens, or most good off-licences, you'll find a great selection of craft beers. Something with actual taste.
No everything is great but if you go in and get a selection of craft beers, it's nice to try out the different ones and find what suits you. I happen to like really hoppy IPA's and each brewer has their own style.
They are too dear,dude, need to be chopped back to managable prices.
Like the publicicans, they want to screw the drinker.
Back of story , send out good beer at a reasonable price and people will drink it.
Otherwise don’t try to piss down our necks.
We have been ridden for long enough.
