    I suppose it's just habit. In tins, I drink Lidl's own. It's decent Pilsner and very reasonably priced at £2.90 for four cans.

    Going to university in Birmingham put me off bitter for life. I drank bitter before I went there. Ansells and M&B were like drinking poison. If I can get Leeds Tetley or Thwaites, I'll have a pint of that now and again, but neither are common in Warrington. They did sell Thwaites in the Grange, but it's changed now and I hardly ever go in anyway.. Sometimes have a Morretti (Cheese) or Peroni (not in the Cheese) rather than Carling

    TBH, I think it depends where abouts in the country you are too. I've had done draft lagers that taste decent in one place and disgusting in another. I used to drink Fosters years ago and that was usually the case, same for Carling too.

    And it's comments like that that make it hard to work you out with drinks. I'd honestly prefer water to Lidl's own and Carling but I love Peroni and Birra.

    Won the quiz last night with a depleted and makeshift team. It had been dumbed down somewhat from the usual level. My ticket was then drawn out for the big prize question. You get a choice of three envelopes, so I chose C. The question was what year did Eastenders first appear on television? I've never watched the ****ing **** in my life, but I was one year out <grr> The winning team takes the kitty ad gets a free drink each. Mine was Moretti while it was free <laugh>

    I've never watched it either. I guessed after reading your post, and was two years out.

    That was when Milk was banned before he considered making a new account... Even though he would deny creating a new account and that new account would deny being milk. Which I deny too btw.

    It was. He posted under the pseudonym on 'John Smith'. What he doesn't know is that I actually know someone called John Smith. He used to do the doors in Warrington <laugh>

    The review from Andy Cuthbert is clearly a made up name as well.
