    Yep much too sweet but not quite at the Tiny Rebel stay puft level.

    Sorry to hear that as well .I was under the impression beer was a good source of iron .Exploding livers are def dangerous to your health. Greene King -ipa should be a safe drink.Nats piss imo.

    Also sorry to hear the bad news. Hope you're feeling more like yourself again, before too long.

    Thanks for the best wishes. I'm not actually on the wagon but since picking up a cold have been hit by the symptoms of anaemia that I should have been suffering from but wasn't. This has meant I've not felt up to visiting a pub, I've got Saturday earmarked. As for doc's advice, you won't be surprised to hear that the advice depends on who you listen to. The most hard line advice comes from the "alcohol nurse" who wants you to give up completely, go to "meetings" and start taking valium (aka downers).
    If I do go out I'll be avoiding doing the whole week's units (or multiples thereof) in a day!.
