Over here in Canada people seem to love these "hard" drinks. Hard basically means a normal drink with alcohol.

Hard Root Beer. It even says on the can it "is for grown ups" haha.
Mikes Hard Lemonade
Theres a whole range of hard ice teas called Hey Yalls

Oh and cant forget Caesars. Clam and tomato juice with vodka and spice

I dunno, all I know is what my doctor told me. He reckoned it was gout, gave me some anti-gout medication (Lengout) which seemed to clear it up in a day or two, and it never happened again since. I didn't really have any of the risk factors (not overweight, don't drink excessively, don't have high blood pressure, etc etc), that cheese was the only thing out of the ordinary in the days preceding it, so that's all I could think of as a potential cause. And for what it's worth, I wasn't just eating chunks of goat's cheese, it was just an ingredient in some of the food served at the party I was at :p So I couldn't really tell you what the cheese itself tastes like, and I'll never be eating it again just in case, so I guess I'll never know :p

New at Dan's, anybody tried this one?
Not the red citrus.

I'm very suspicious around flavoured gins. The occasional one works, but too often it just has a lack of balance. You don't have any sense of the other gin flavours.

I think, if you want another flavour in your gin, add a mixer.

West End straight out of the river that flows alongside the establishment
The quality improvement in West End over the last few years has it on par with any of the brewed under licence rubbish people are willing to pay $12 a pint for because they think it's imported.

It's no Mismatch or Little Bang. But it's better than Great Northern Et al.

Are cans your preference over glass?
No preference. I don't get into all the craft beer nonsense where a big part of drinking the beer is the sexy can.

This is a bit of a sad story. I was having a bit of session on the pints of coopers pale, started to feel a bit over it so changed it up to a can of coopers pale and I was back!
