    I haven't been able to drink beer from a can in years - it tastes strange somehow; bottle or draught only for me.

    You know, I'm sure that my local supermarket sells OSH in packs of four bottles.

    I'm off to the shops in about 5 minutes - will have a look.

    I tried some ale called Chocolate Mild today. Actually it wasn't very good! I expected a stout but it wasn't. I wouldn't bother if you see it.

    Put down another brew on Friday. It's a Timothy Taylor Landlord clone. 70 pints fermenting away. A second brew going down tomorrow. A Draft Bass clone but only 40 pints.

    Working my way through 40 pints of Ruby Red and 35 pints of London Pride that has reached maturity.

    I haven't bought any beer for months.

    No. I'm a Aussie Republican. I like the show but don't like the actors :(

    Plus no time as I have to work. Not all of us get time off to watch the priviledged classes. :rolleyes:
