Worst would probably be Keystone ice or any light/ice american non-beer.

Stella? Couldn't find a girlier named beer to drink eh ? Might as well drink something called Nancy, Sally or one of those hot pink cocktails with little umbrellas

I actually didn't mind the beers in the UK compared to some of the watered down mass market stuff that passes for beer in the US. Plus old English pubs have so much more atmosphere than most sweaty meat markety bars in the US.
Think of Stella in the same category as Amstel, Kronenbourg 1664 or Grolsch, it has that premium quality taste to it.

The popular lagers in the UK are Carling and Fosters... they both taste like chilled piss. They spend tens of million on advertising (which to be fair they do amazing ads), but as a result they are pushing tradition English Brews out of the market, which is a pity... because IMO traditional English Ale's and Beers are the best in the world.

For you American's - if your ever in a UK pub and they sell cask ale, give it a shot, for true English pub experience. I'll tell you what, some of the stuff is like rocket fuel.

Oh I was just giving you a hard time based on the name bro, Stella being a common woman's name. Stella's good beer I've enjoyed it many a time myself.

Carling is terrible ... funny thing is it looks like real beer until you taste it and it's like .. chilled piss, spot on. Machida would approve.

I agree with you on traditional English brews. Some of my best memories of England are of cycling down to the nearest village with mates (you guys and your bicycles ), and hunkering down next to the fireplace at an old pub for a pint of every traditional brew for miles while gabbing about every random thing under the sun. They're top class and very authentic, but yes as you say they're getting fewer and fewer, especially in big city london.

Lol, if you like bikes try going to Amsterdam.

Those crazy mother ****ers don't even have breaks on their bikes and they are EVERYWHERE. The only warning you get is my the stupid bell they have *ding ding*.

A few years back my mate got totally wiped out on steep hill by one of them, I think he was too stoned coming out of the Café to notice the *ding ding DING*. Was pretty funny though... you know what its like when you're stoned and get a fit of the giggles; I couldn't stop laughing for about an hour. I still laugh at him today about it 'Remember that time when you got totalled by a push bike.', it makes for excellent conversation when he is chatting a bird up.

It sucks I've never actually been to Amsterdam. Been all over Europe, pretty much every West European country except Netherlands, Portugual and Finland. Amsterdam's been on my list forever but just never came about.

I'll take your advice on the bikes when I get there though lol. I'm sure the birds are quite impressed by his survival from an epic crash of such massive proportions, that or a bit amused and appalled not sure which .

Used to live about a 90 second walk away from the brewery in Chico. The brewery had a nice resturant and big bar with all of their commercial creations available plus several unique seasonal brews not sold on stores. They sold their beer in Chico for about the same price as Coors or Budweiser, was pretty cool, you'd see it around a lot and kegs of it were real cheap compared to everywhere else if you tired to get one. It's been my go to brew for a long time now when I want something I like with no explanations. Aside from that though, I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to beer, brand-wise, I'm a fan of Lagunitas creations as well.


I like MMA less because of this forum

Ah Stella... my beer of choice as a school boy. To be honest, right now it's Shipsterns, it's not a bad beer and they're £2.49 for a 4 pack.

Finally found a tidy, economical beer. Aldi

For our Honeymoon we went to a 5* Hotel in Cancun. They had Desperados in the mini bar in the hotel (which was included in the price). It was awesome, every day they'd come up to the room and replace whatever you'd drank the night before.

I like Hobgoblin too. Bishops Finger, Old Empire Pale Ale, Bombardier also all go down a treat!
