    Default Alcohol from the 1990s

    I remember these; most of them were disgusting: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/ne...unger-17338082

    Not tried most of them, but I liked Hooch.

    Most pubs refuse to serve snake-bite these days, but those in the know order the components seperately and mix them at their table.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    I remember Oranjeboom Lager, that was quite nice.

    I've never drunk it, but a lot of shops still sell it.

    Not heard of it, but I'm not a lager drinker.

    I've never tried it either - I've always been a real ale drinker.

    Snap! One of my old workmates was at the first CAMRA AGM in Nuneaton. He taught me well.

    Beer's got a lot better since I started drinking. When I turned 18, the only 'beer' you could buy in pubs way Tetley's, John Smith's & Boddingtons. Now, in a lot of the better pubs, you can't move for decent beer.

    One of my first drinks was Watney's Red Barrel. - I was likely underage at the time. I miss Ansells Bitter though.

    Oddly enough, one of my more recent workmates is now CAMRA National director.
