    Well i was going to do a poll but then you'd only be able to choose from a list that i thought of. To be honest that would have excluded lager and mass produced bitters, well and cider as well.

    so my favourite two are:

    Bowman ales

    or

    Ringwood brewery

    Anything by Gales or Heavitree would be obvious if you knew the family ot where I live - so instead it'll have to be Hobgoblin (Wychwood) or Waggledance..... or, on a hot day, Hoegaarden...!! (on draught in the Red Barn &#33

    Adnams - worth the travel to get it from "the horses mouth".

    Another Vote for Abbot Ale here

    With Adnams Broadside as runner up, much better in SOuthwold than anywhere else though & I dont recommend the stuff in tins!!

    Hmmmmmmmmm
    Any amateur (or otherwise) sociologists out there?
    This thread has highlighted several points....either:-

    1. Geocachers don't drink lager (even proper lagers (even some mass produced ones))
    or
    2. Only real ale drinkers are likely to participate in GAGB forums.
    or
    3. We're all liars, and are partial to a pint of something fizzy from an aluminium cask on a hot day, but daren't admit it to our peers.
    or
    4. Bu66er that, I don't care how hot it is outside, I'm going to drink it warm and flat anyway.

    ....but that's because you only ever drink halves....... and not all lagers are fizzy pi55 - some of them are "real"

    Lol, I must admit we usually have some Stella in the fridge but its more of a thirst quencher at mealtimes than a drink I would choose over a nice ale.... As I said before Dont try Broadside from a tin YUK!! Actually we drink Stella more as a "soft drink" .... Dunno what that says for us though LOL :P

    drinking a pint doesn't make the drink taste any better or worse than a half!!! :lol:

    and REAL lager is an oxymoron if ever there was one :lol:

    Don't confuse disco-pi55 with lager - there's as many cr4p, mass produced "ales" on the bar as there are lagers....

    Try one of these-

    Bock/Doppledock: Strong, heavy, medium to dark lager.
    Dortmund: A clean lager, with a malty taste.
    Dunkel: ('dark' in German) dark lager from Munich.
    Helles: (pale beer): A pale golden lager, with a malty taste.
    Oktoberfest/Märzen: A deep amber beer originally brewed in March.
    Schwarzbier: A dark lager with a chocolate-like flavour.
    Vienna Lager: A reddish brown beer with a malty taste.
    Spezial: A storng, full-bodied, bittersweet lager.
