Just cos I is bored at my desk this afternoon, we (the enlightened few) had a discussion on the delights of Real Ale as opposed to chemically fermented and downright homosexual lager type beers. My esteemed college had only recently discovered the delights of Real Ale and stated in his articulate Yorkshire accent tastes reet good does that! Which opened the discussion point on whether it is more manly to drink an ale as opposed to a Lager. Obviously this conversation took on a distinct North /South divide, i.e Southern Homo Lager swillers or Northern Homo Ale n Whippet shaggers, so no real distinction was made as to the manly-ness (?) of Ale drinking! Now! being a real Ale drinker for a fair number of years, I actually prefer that to more commercially available (Cheaper?) beers like Boddingtons/John Smiths etc, and would never sully my lips or bowels with Lager! Simply because it tastes betterso therefore much more Macho than a crap tasting Lager!! andabsolutly nothing to do with the Ale being stronger in alcoholic content (generally!) so the question to the floor is two fold, what is your preferred Real Ale of choice and are you a more macho and manly for drinking it? Obviously post with reasons for choice (though the regulars will need no encouragement there) For me I like a slightly chilled bottle of Bishops Finger or Hobgoblin, or when inebriation is required, Bombardier as it normally blows my head off!! Braced an ready for incoming.
