    Surely the taste gets boring after a while. It's basically a tube of liquorice flavoured crushed privet leaves.
    Have you ever considered adding something just for flavour.
    I dont mean owt illegal but just a new taste. I dont smoke but I'd have experimented with loads of things, cinnamon, herbs, coffee, maybe.
    Mrs B & her mother have just rolled loads, but seem to think I'm mad.
    Somebody must have tried this, it's an obvious thing to do imo.

    You're weird.

    Do you take a handful of cinnamon into the bedroom when you're getting your leg over?

    Do you put basil and oregano in your glass of water?

    When you have a fresh pint of beer, do you sprinkle ground coffee in it?

    Of course you don't. Some things are fine as they are.

    I prefer magnesium at bedtime, rather than cinnamon, as I sleep much better.
    A slice of lemon, orange or cucumber in my water coz I'm a tart.
    Just leave my beer & very occasional rollies alone....... I have few simple pleasures in life to look forward to.

    In the CzechRep they sometimes mix beer with fanta ffs, I even saw someone mix it with coca-cola once. Absolutely disgusting & sacrilegious behaviour, especially considering how wonderful their beer is.

    Czech beer is fantastic. Have you ever had Berliner Kindl Weisse? Its a lovely sour beer (if you like that kind of thing) but its regularly mixed with fruit-flavoured syrups. Personally, I think its much better on its own. (Its German, not Czech. Just thought I'd better say)

    One thing I noticed the last time I visited blighty was that every third shop was a vape shop. Or at least there was enough of them for it to seem that way.
    Last time I had a cigarette was nearly 30 years ago now. I couldn’t roll one to save my life even then.

    Vape shops sell all sorts of different flavours, if I was a smoker this would make me all the more determined to experiment.

    I can't say I have, mate. I'm not that big a fan of fruity beers, just fruity water from time to time.:emoticon-0111-blush

    There are loads of great breweries (& micro-breweries) in Czech, which don't make it over here such as Bernard, Primator. In the 6 years I lived there I never once had a bad hangover from beer, nor would it bloat you out. Of the ones that you see here, Pilsner Urquell is the only one I'd touch, or a good Dark Kozel - apparently this is what Charlie Wyke has been drinking:emoticon-0148-yes:

    The Berliner Kindl isn't fruity unless you add the syrup, which I've never done.
    I love Pilsner Urquell and Kozel. I love a dark lager. Pretty certain I've had Primator but not sure about Bernard. I've got a mate from southern Poland, where the beer is similarly good, and he's introduced me to some good ones.

    Been vaping for about 5 years or so now after using it to get off the cigarettes. Best thing I ever did and lung function tests are great now also so that's a bonus. Loads of flavours but I seem to stick to just one that I like ( red Astaire)
