Happy Birthday GSL and Yceman :drinkers:
Happy Birthday Yak ya old fart! :drinkers:
Incase people haven't noticed my sig for the past month, my 21st is just around the corner :smt023
No real plans, demanded no surprise parties as I'd rather have the money that would have been spent on the party. also asked for no presents as I'd rather take the money and buy my own presents LOL.
I'll probably end up on xbox live or soemthing for most of the day though.
Anyhow, just to reiterate:
Happy Birthday Yak ya old fart!! :drinkers:

happy birthday to you all and you are not old farts :-)
and by the way i am 22 and sometimes feel like i am 50 year old because of the shit and things i have experienced in my life so age does not matter at all :-)
:drinkers: :drinkers: :drinkers:
Yeah, mine is quite relentless as well. She knows I don't give a shit though.missus always make fun of me with my video game and chogokin toys... :-D
Damn straight it does, and I should know - look at my location! Though you yanks are weird and get in bottles (well, from what I've seen on TV anyway). We get Guiness in cans and draught for that authentic shitness.Originally Posted by Greatsaintlouis
And you guys are great - you make me feel so not old! I'm only 19, but usually I feel so decrepit, seeing all these 10-year-old kids with their own mobile phones, their own 21" TVs and DVD players (when I was 10 most my friends where still living with their parents' old black & white portable, and a crappy top-loading VCR, IF YOU'RE LUCKY!), and not forgetting all the new crappy kids' fads like Beyblade and Yugioh and all that other crap. When I was a kid, all we had were marbles... then Pogs... *then* Tamagotchi...
Turn after the SECOND CAKE!
haha, that makes 3 people on this board whose birthday is on the 21st of november, as I turned 20 yesterday :smt033
I must say that I, too, felt struck by the "being around for 2 rather unproductive decades" feeling. Thankfully there was plenty of booze & mates around to remedy the feeling :smt030
Oh and for the record, I dig Guinness :smt071
i don´t like beers at all
Guiness is stout! Stout that's BLACK LIKE THE DEPTHS OF HELL. I usually only drink beer (especially Erdinger!), but being in silly student land I occasionally try other things. For example, last year when I got my exam results, me and my classmate tried Sunny D with really cheap vodka.
It tasted... erm... different.
Turn after the SECOND CAKE!
I can't believe you don't like guiness - I love the stuff - one of my favourite Drinks! Oh well That means more guiness in the world for me i guess! :drinkers:Originally Posted by Zilog Jones
Happy B`Day to all of you whose B`Day has just been or is in the next week :drinkers:
I am sure that there is one other
OLD FART :death
here but can`t remember who it is :smt009
You are all a bunch of youngsters
My "40th" is approaching faster and faster and what a day to have it
Was a great day to have a birthday in my youth as new
years eve....LARGE session then keep going all the next day. :drinkers:
Now I just want it to pass me by in a hurry :smt043
....Full on Mario collector....
Guinness was just too damn bitter... but then again, I suppose I'm not much of an alcohol person. A friend had me try a few things of his, and I discovered that Bailey's Irish Creme smells like turpentine and tastes like horribly foul cherry cough syrup, and his expensive brandy set my mouth and tongue on fire in a most unpleasent way.
I have found Sapporo to be rather agreeable in small doses, however, and maybe next weekend I'll do a bit more taste testing, but as I thought before I was 21, the whole consumption-of-alcohol thing is highly overrated. :smt009
If you want something easy to start with, I'd go with the "normal" beer (what they call "lager" in the UK) - Budweiser, Karlsberg, or a personal favourite, Grolsch. It's what I like most, I'm more of a beer person when it comes to drinking :-)
But if you feel like trying something stronger, I think wine is pleasant when you get through the initial phase of disgust :smt042
And here in Holland we have stuff called "Coebergh", it's liquor made of cherries (ABV of 20%), but it tastes just like lemonade... imagine the danger!
Yes, beer is probably the easiest to start off on then move on to the more "heavier" drinks such as cider then move on to the spirits. In Japan I mostly drink beer (Kirin Larger beer :smt042 great name. It's like they didn't know whether to follow the British English name or the US name) and Chu-Hi. Chu-Hi is best described as a spirits based fruit drink. These can be quite strong. The average is about 7.5% alcohol. Anyone who comes to Japan should try them. There are many varieties to choose from. My personal favourite is Lime and Lemon vodka based Chu-Hi. Two glasses of that stuff and you're lucky to stand up without your head spinning.
Aren't "they" bringing out some law to prevent American "beer" being sold as "beer" and having to market it as "lager" which is what it is. Real beer, is flat (non fizzy) and from a cask drawn from a manual (as opposed to gas powered) python (pump).
I think the law also prevents the American "Budweiser" company using that name as it's owned/patented/etc elsewhere (in Bavaria or something)
I used to be a bar manager.
Goat is animal
Ah, Kirin, the great stuff they sell in those pimpy 1 liter beer cans :-DOriginally Posted by Yakumo
I brought one of those home on the plane to put on my "uncommon beer bottles" shelf :-p
And I drank some of the Chu-hi in Japan, but that was the night that I fell asleep on the street in Roppongi, coincidence? :smt042
I'm not a huge fan of beer/lager or whatever you call it, but I like it. Actually, I like the kind that is sold here in Brasil (I don't know what's the technical name for it), specially if it's very cold. It seems that in Europe people like to drink it warm, huh? I can't even imagine how bad it must taste :-D
Anyway, I also like bourbon and vodka, specially if they're both really cold :-D
Nah good beer has to be (ice) cold! Although my dad (who is from the US, btw) has stated that "real lovers of beer will also like it when warm" :smt043Originally Posted by Yceman
Kirin is good, you say Yakumo? Although I haven't been in any liquor stores yet, the local supermarkets only really have Sapporo and Kirin as far as Japanese beers go (and some stuff called Red Owl rice cider :smt043 ) and was thinking of giving Kirin a go this next weekend.
And the reason I haven't tried Budweiser, Coors, PBR, or any of the other American brews is that everyone says that compared to imports, the stuff is awful, and as the stuff is all rather bitter anyways, I definately don't want to dive into the drinks regarded as crap by people with tolerances. :smt043
Red wine I've actually had before, and don't mind that much - the problem there is finding which one is a good buy. :smt009
Fosters, Heineken, Hefeweisen, and Corona are all fairly lauded here - anyone have any recommendations or warnings on those?
I don't like Heineken, it's odd that of all Dutch beers it is the most exported. Oh and consider yourself lucky that you can buy Japanese beer in supermarkets, in this country the only place to get it is in restaurants at 3e a bottle :angry
