Love that

I love those English Ales.  I just wish we could get Fullers and Smiths much fresher here and at a more reasonable price.  I wish Bass would go back to it's old recipe too, they changed it recently.

I agree.....I can't stand most light beer either.  Well...except for maybe Coors Light, but I always buy the Coors Banquet beer over the light beer.

There's nothing like enjoying a good beer in the fresh outdoor air. Dancing

Great guys

I remember when Coors was exotic because you couldn't get it east of the Mississippi River.  It was even the central premise behind Smokey and the Bandit.  How times have changed...the UK is definitely east of the river!

Doesn't Coors count as a "fizzy lager?"

Coors

I love Coors Banquet beer, even if it is a fizzy lager, it's my old stand-by lawn mowing beer. I probably drink Coors more than any other beer and have been enjoying it longer than any other, especially during the summer months.  Plus, living about 20 miles from the Coors brewery I also have always had a few close friends who work there at Coors. Unfortunately they no longer get the Banquet beer at an employee discount.  I also have  a few favorite real imports and local micro-craft beers that I buy regularly too. 

Yes we can get various English imported ales here.  Most bigger cities here in the U.S. have large warehouse type liquor retailers that carry a wide variety of beers from around the world.  I'm real big on learning various breweries date-codes and bottle-codes so I'm aware that many of the European imported beer that is sold here is often near it's expiration date or past it. Not the brewers fault, but mainly it's the retailer and distributors fault for that. 

I also love sipping Jack Daniels (both the Green and Black lable) and Wild Turkey 101, but mostly enjoy that Tennessee Whiskey and Kentucky Bourbon on occasion during the cooler months from Thanksgiving Holiday on through about April.  Great stuff!!
