A comparison.......

 

Get a washing-up bowl,fiill it with warm water,add some washing-up liquid/detergent (to taste),add dirty dishes and clean with scouring pad.Then remove dishes from bowl,leave water to cool and leave to rest,thus enabling liquid/detergent to mix and give that unique flavour.

When sufficiently cool,place a funnel into any old used beer bottle and proceed to pour.Before capping the bottle,just to give "that" taste,sprinkle some gravy granules into the bottle and mix with a "twizzle" stick,or a fork handle if you prefer.

Leave in tthe fridge for a while then remove and "de-cap",thus allowing it to breathe and warm-up to "boiled-kettle" temperature.

Then proceed to taste and proclaim "Real ale...There's nothing fuckin' like it"

 

And the result ??......... :puke: Lovely !!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't agree with Wotty on this one as I actually like the Hen. But that, my friends, is a damn funny description. :lol:

If this is the nectar of the gods, I hate to taste the urine of the gods!!! :lol:

 

Just Kidding Jez!!

 

It's not bad, but then again, I'm an alcholic. You can slap a beer sticker on a can of paint, I'd probably drink it..

 

My problem with the old Hen is the price.. I think I sold my liver to the guy at the counter for a six pack...

What a deal!

I got a six pack and this guy gets my liver that has more spots on it than a leppard... :christmas:

Like Dave, I'd try it too if I ever saw it, but also like Dave, for those prices I'd rather eat my penis... uh, again... today.

The mighty 'Hen' is about £2.50 a pint over here in well over half the pubs nowadays. I buy mine from the supermarket and pay about £1.50 - £1.75 for a 500ml bottle - don't know what that is in $Aus.

That converted to Oz $ for your supermarket price is about $2.65 to $3.00 but the bottles for sale here were 350ml and they would average out to Oz $4.65 per 350ml bottle.....which equals 2.65 GBP for 350ml.

Make your own,as I posted previously,or use the residue after cleaning the windows,car,shoes/boots and even the toilet,for that authentic,yet acquired taste.Yum !!!!!!!!! :whistle:

The places I've found it a 6 pack is between $10-$12. Even that was a bit too much for me.

 

That's more in line with what I've found here in NC. Good beer though.

 

When I found it in Paducah Kentucky it was something like $9.99 for a 4 pack of tall cans I think.

But would you say it tasted like "Gnats Piss",as most Real Ales do ! :whistle:

Shandy boys ignorance on the subject is astounding.

 

Now back to your fruit shoots and leave the beer to the men mate :whistle:
