    You're on!

    It's good living in Herts, CAMRA are based nearby and are always having real ale festivals and tastings. Right, so our society so far consists of us sitting in the Evening Star once a week drinking then? Sounds like fun! Maybe we can get funding for it.

    If you try enough of the ales you'll find one you enjoy.

    Would I be allowed to join your society even though I have never tried real ale? I want to try it but feel I would like some expert help and guidance :p: I wouldn't want to try the wrong one :O

    Just stay away from liquid lobotomy and orkney skullsplitter

    It's better to start with a paler ale and make your way onto the darker ales - some, such as Black mass will not appeal to the first time ale drinker.

    Agreed...paler ales are the right way to start on ale. I love a really strong dark malty one although ive got to be in the right mood for it. On the other hand id never turn down a pint of Landlord

    Ar, a girl after me own heart Having said that, I have drunk so much vodka in the past that nowadays it hardly has any effect on me at all. Which is slightly disappointing. And worrying :rolleyes:

    Ah well I've not been drinking all summer in an attempt to turn myself into a 1drink a night girl. I'm a lightweight as it is but if I can make myself even more so then I shouldn't be spending too much come freshers

    When I go out I do try to behave as if I'm NOT just trying to get as drunk as possible as quickly as possible ...

    ... it doesn't always work out like that though.

    Hey all!

    Sooo late on here. Crikey. I found out today (blinkin' IB) that I'll be at Sussex this year! Hurrah. My name's Nat, I'm still only 17 (FOUR DAYS til I'm not, hurrah), and I'll be doing French, Spanish and Anthropology. I can't wait to go now, but I'm pretty nervous. However, I can cook a mean spaghetti bolognese (even a veggie version) (none of that jar stuff) so everyone is invited to mine for tea one night heehee.

    Good luck for tomorrow
