A rich and full-bodied beer, tan in colour with a clove-like fruity bouquet. Froma brewery of great history and tradition.
5. Calvors Premium
Most mainstream lagers are watered down from stronger brews, but expect none of this nonsense with Calvors. Brewed in Suffolk.
6. Goose Island IPA
This Chicago beer has shedloads of hops with big herbaceous perfumes: think tangerines, lychees and lime.
7. Coniston Brewing Company Bluebird Bitter
Pale, with just a hint of colour, it has a huge orange fruit aroma, balanced by biscuit malt.
8. Thornbridge Wild Swan
This pale ale is a great session beer. White-gold, it has aromas of light bitter lemon, a hint of herb and a subtle spiciness.
9. St Austell Admiral's Ale

10. Beer Chang
Beer Chang is Thailand's biggest selling lager. It's not sophisticated but is great with Asian food or as a fun drink on its own.
