    Default Summer Drinks

    I'm partial to a nice Magners over ice or a Dry Blackthorn during the summer. The cool, refreshing taste of alcohol and apples.

    Rough cider. I can take or leave it. A nice Newcastle Brown ale also hits the spot.

    Some say it tastes better when you haven't bought the drink as well. I hope to find out as the fat lady stirs.

    Is the panel partial to a particular summer beverage above others?

    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    Augustiner or Hacker Pschorr Helles fresh from the cask, or a bottle of Muenchner Gold for me.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    Chablis grand cru or Sancerre.

    Or if I'm slumming it a nice champagne style Breton or Normandy cider.

    Or Home made lemonade

    If I can't get Magners on tap ( over ice!) I'll have an Aspall's premier cru.

    If I could have anything, it'd be a nice cold glass of Veuve

    Cider with ice...... Isn't that one of those tacky marketing gimicks thought up to trap the sort of brainless "follow the herd" winkers who used to drink overpriced lager then moved on to overpriced Alcho-Pops.... and overpriced bottled lager with a slice of lime in the neck....

    At least Newkie Brown isn't complete pish... close though...

    Nice pint of..... Pedigree.. or TT's Landlord.... or Pride.... or Abbot... or well any decent Ale is OK by me really!
