    Yakov smirnov is a good lunch drink, tastes like candy :p

    Gin is a good evening drink.


    Beer is good drink if you want to hurt both your liver and taste buds, lol

    drinks

    Very surprised that someone as young as CSP is an authority on drink!
    The expression 'Bar-Maids Apron' comes to mind!

    CSP. serious question, what exactly is Graduation in the Canadian Education System? Do you finish school? If so at what age? Or do you go on for further education? Did I read somewhere you hoped to join Canadian Navy?

    Re: asabuv

    Technically, its not really graduation, but get a diploma(this counts as ur diploma whenever you pass). U technically graduate after you get your report card back and have enough high school credits.U finish high school, or secondary as you may call it in england. people that graduate this year are mostly born in 1989, allthough to people having education elsewhere some were born before or after 1989.Some people do trade school or university.Yeah, I want to join the navy reserve. Ill do boot camp for 12 weeks starting in July. Then ill go to the unit and do more training, and work once a week and sometimes go to sea depending on the occupation I choose.

    I wonder why a person may find beer bitter and bad tasting, but prefers strong liquor and already has such knowledge at leaving highschool...

    :roll: :roll:

    Its the environment b'ye. Everyone here drinks when they come around their teens. Beer is just dirt. It tastes bad. Liquid barly with alcohol is not a pleasant mix.

    Hard liquor isnt quite as foul and often tastes better.

    Well, I had 12 beers last night. Before you cry hypocrit or whatever, I couldnt get my hands on much else, so I had to fall back on beer.But I did get some vodka, which tasted very good. This in reference to the post grad party I mentioned in an earlier post. Quillin, I think we can both agree that Budweiser sucks at least, lol. I had 1-2 , and they were enough for me, lol

    CSP, Canadians start to drink at 12?
    That suprsied me... Yeesh, now I feel rather old-fashioned and uncool... I wouldn't let my widdle 12y.o. sisters drink :angry: !!

    Being myself of legal age and having enjoyed the occasional drinkie from time to time :D I find that...

    Anything from Europe is ace :wink:
    Except Croatian beer (bleach)... No wonder Croats are always so angry


    You guys are just lucky Australian's don't export beer
    ...
    It makes Croatian beer look like sweet heavenly nectar...
    I daresay it may almost be as bad as the watered-down American stuff :eek:

    drink

    Budweiser sells on advertising! I gave a series of 56 shows on tour to military bases, each and every base gave us loads of free beer to give out to people who cared to take part in our competitions etc. One base in Knightsbridge, London (locals will have a good idea where) gave us equal amounts of Budweiser and John Smiths, the latter a far better beer.
    But just about all took Budweiser (through TV ads) and we kept most of the John Smiths.
    Which just goes to prove that when young people are on a binge they don't care what beer they shove down their throats, not a pretty sight.
    Personaly I like Bavarian Wheat Beer but I wouldn't like to down twelve of them!
    "get it down you, do you good" .......hour later....."get it up you'll feel better"

    I admit I've never had the brand budweiser, but the original budweiser recipe (which the US purchased the license for) budejovice budvar is very very very very good

    Mandatory-drinking-good

    Even Canadian 'I hate beer' Super Patriot would like it :smok:

    Euh, australians do export beer. Unless Foster's is from New Zealand. :wink:

    Here we have several brands, most of the pilsner kind.
    Legal age here I think is 16 with the last law, but I started with beer at 12. Whisky a little later :grin:

    Belgian beer I like the most is Hoegaarden. Also tasted Cantillon, but tastes more like a kind of cider (I'll even say cider from Navarra) than beer.

    Strongest beer I ever tasted was a serbian beer, half liter bottles of 18º beer. Can only say I forgot the brand after the second bottle :lol:
