Bikerman...whajfink of this Ale ?
« on: 27/11/2008 22:34:56 »
Dearest Bikerman ( and others who know about Ale !)

I just bought this...here it is...on my desk !



It says it's a golden ale with hints of melon and pear (that's what sold it to me)..plus..it has a piccy of a badger on the front....which is nice !

Do I need to prepare myself in any way ?..should I advise family ?..my neighbour ?...any precautions I need to know about ?..side effects?

Do I have it with ice  ? a slice of lemon and a cocktail umbrella ? Do ewe know this ale ?...should I wear a seat belt ? a crash helmet  ?


I just don't know !!....

Your opinions and comments will be most appreciated !



hugs and shmishes


mwah mwah mwah

*hic..ewe are my beshtesht frend  hic !!*

I have quaffed a scoop or two of Tanglefoot on numerous occasions and, as of yet, my ears have not dropped off.

I have a bishops finger in my cupboard. Do you think I will find it as satisfying as a tangle foot?

So, if the Doc luffs it then I am sure to luff it too...and retain my ears also !....It just gets better and better !!...nothing will droop at all !!  ;D

Wow !!

I had no idea that there's a whole search engine industry based on ale !

Thanks RD...well, it says on the bottle that it's 5%..I take it that means it's a lot then !!..gosh !!...and it's 500ml...just over a pint then.....so...how many units is that ?

Some ales are only 3.5%, (there are stronger beers: up to 8%-9%),
 so if an alleged teetotaller necks a bottle of 5% it will have a noticeable effect on their cognitive and motor functions.

 :)I assure ewe..I AM tea-total !..no really ..I am !!..I just don't like the stuff !

I doubt very much that I will drink the whole bottle...one glug is all I will need....and I suspect that I'll use the rest to make a batter and deep fry some veggies to make Tempura !!...which will be nice !

I enjoy the odd pint of tangle foot - My recent beverage of choice has been another Badger beer - Golden Glory.  Actually, I think I'll drink anything brewed by Badger Brewerys...

It is a fine pint of ale.
Enjoy it on its own, not too cold (just below room temperature - say 10 mins in the fridge).
It will be the equivalent of about 2.5 units of alcohol - in other words you would be well advised to wait at least a couple of hours before driving (after 1 bottle that is).
It won't get you drunk (unless you have a remarkably low tolerance) but it should put a smile on your face  ;)

If you've enjoyed Tangle Foot then you might like to try Fursty Ferret, also from Hall & Woodhouse - it's not so strong (4.4%) but just as good.

I send a bottle to my sister-in-law's German husband in Munich when anyone goes over - he's totally bewildered by the names of some of our beers. I've avoided sending him any Spitfire!

I don't know what a bottle would do for people's motor function, but it seems to have upset their arithmetic.
"Thanks RD...well, it says on the bottle that it's 5%..I take it that means it's a lot then !!..gosh !!...and it's 500ml...just over a pint then.....so...how many units is that ?"

A pint is 568 ml.
