    English lagers are meant to be drunk at room temperature, and they actually taste better like that.

    Beez Neez isn't anything special.

    La Trappe is pretty good, I've been enjoying the Tripel and Quadruppel lately.

    Brutal. I prefer the Blond and Witte. The Witte would be one of my favourite beers.

    I tried Beez Neez once, and thought it was weak and uninspiring. A while later I thought I'd try it again, and unfortunately came to the same conclusion.

    I was in Hahndorf in SA a couple of days ago and tried a Hofbräu Dunkel (dark) in a German pub. It was very pricey, but very nice.

    Jupiler seemed to be the most popular beer in Belgium if I remember correctly, tho I never did try it. Will do next time.

    I certainly wouldn't call Boags Draught boutique, and it is surely nicer than Carlton Draught and VB.

    I'm not a big fan of Boags. Cascade for the Tasmanian beer win!

    Boags Draught is pretty good as a standard sort of beer. The best Boags brew is Wizard Smith's. I think Cascade's a bit better than Boag's overall though.

    I never tried the Wizard Smith's, and we don't stock it at work anymore. My favourite Boags is the St George.

    That one's pretty good too, especially when it's hot. I arrived in Wycheproof in western Victoria once and was hanging for a beer. Bought a few of those and it was gold. Do you work at a bottle shop?
