    Desperados, Corona, Brahma - I'm assuming you'd categorise them all as Continental Lager?

    I'm a bit of a real ale drinker here. I like most sorts, though not keen on novelty or wheat beers. I tend to err towards darker beers, and if one is on offer I will almost always find myself ordering a mild at the pub.

    On a hot summer's day I'd usually go for a nice IPA, or may occasionally go for something like a Peroni (despite not being a big fan of lagers in general). However, I did come across a gorgeous, dark, Mexican lager a short while back - Negra Modelo - if you can find it, try it: it's amazing.

    I heard it's apparently an old man's drink though

    Ale all the way.

    Lager tastes like lemonade in comparison. And Don't get me started on stuff like Bud Light and Corona.

    Personally I'd say they fall into the more commercial lager style - Carling, Fosters, Carlsberg, Coors, Budweiser, Corona, Sol, Brahma, Cobra,

    There's a bit of a grey area - San Miguel for example - but generally the above are rather lighter and weaker tasting than the traditional Czech and German lagers.

    Desperados and the other one that sounds similar (Amigos?) is just a bog-standard commercial lager with tequila added. Don't really like it myself.

    I get that a lot too :/

    Sometimes, I want to drink something that doesn't taste like piss (Carling) and is the choice of your average chav.

    And I'm the weird one? Pfft.

    Being from Burton-on-Trent, the brewing capital, its only natural that I like ales and bitters. Something like Pedigree, Banks's, or a local ale does it for me every time.

    Erdinger is my favourite beer but I tend to drink Heineken when out.

    Guinness is the best drink by far but suited more to a quiet pub rather than a night out

    Pretty much this.

    Although I won't say I like anything because I know from experience I'm not keen on ales with a lot of aroma hops in them because they tend to be florally. I will try anything though.

    Love a good mild; they can be a bit of a rare find though Also love a good porter.

    Real ale's great because there's so many different types. Of course, most annoying thing is pubs which are tied to the big breweries (in Wales it's Brains) and while the law means they are still allowed a guest ale even if tied into a contract, that means you don't always get a great variety in any individual pub. That makes finding a good real ale pub all the better though; we've got one in Cardiff where the landlord says he can get hold of almost anything and he regularly has four different ales on. :cheers:

    Once the kidneys have done their job, why not save your money and drink your own piss if you love that beer taste?

    Voted continental lager given that I usually drink that. Belgian Abbey Ales (Leffe for me) and Weissbiers (Weihenstephan) are also fantastic though.

    What is your preferred style of beer?
    It depends on the occasion. I most enjoy belgium abbey ales but I only drink them when celebrating or happen to making an outing to a well-stocked pub. Otherwise I just drink pale lagers as session beers - I find the snobbish talk about them gets carried away.
