Why is it that these days you can't buy a drink unless it come out of the cooler? In Wetherspoon's when you ask for a Magners, it comes out of the cooler and they say
"Do you want ice with that?".
"NO it's minus four outside, can't I have it at room temperature?"
"Errrr no"
Why does everyhing have to be chilled these days?:confused:

So you can't taste it and complain about how crap it really is.:(

Magners tastes best when poured into a pint glass with plenty of ice in my opinion. A lovely drink particularly in the summer.

Perhaps order a cup of tea or a hot chocolate. cheers.

I think the problem may well be the fact that you were in a Wetherspoon's....they're so cheap because they buy most of their stock just before the use by date, which is why their beer is off so often.

Dumb question time. What is Magners?

Bulmers with a different name (so the Micks and the Limies don't think they drink the same stuff) :rolleyes:

There used to be a drink called Peardrax, similar to "Champagne perry"

Cider made from pears is called Perry.

And Magners is made using apple juice concentrate, mainly from Germany. Horrible.

Try Westons if you want a proper cider.

.....and if you want a pie from the pie warmer, it's so :mad: hot you can't get it in your mouth for at least fifteen minutes, and you only bought the damn thing because you wanted to wolf it down right then, and if it's mince and cheese, or steak and cheese, the cheese is like molten lava and it runs and sticks and BURNS and why do they have to be so hot? :confused:

Ah, one has a bottle of Henry Westons special vintage cider reserve in front of one as one types.
Tis a shame that it's empty tho'

Never mind, more in the fridge for later.

Ee, we used to have Weston's Scrumpy on tap in one pub in Londinium I worked in whilst domiciled in Pomgolia many moons ago. Cloudy stuff, delivered in plastic kegs by two beared individuals in a flat-deck D-series Ford. Smelt like vinegar. Tasted like $h!te. Got one absolutely legless :ok: :ok: :ok:
