Default Best beer in UK

Im 21, been drinking since around 17. Only started drinking beers in last year, was just spirits before that.

I was wondering the general opinion of the NFLUK forum regarding Beers that are available easily in UK. Like if people do a top 3 of their favourite accessible Beers in UK ....

Forget fizzy lagers and stick to Ale's
It's good to see supermarkets stocking better Ales as well as some German Lagers that are not called "Becks" for a change !
Good ales readily available
Bishops Finger
Hobgoblin
Ringwood Old Thumper

Fizzy stuff(German) you can get Krombacher at Tesco & now it is summer you can try Wheatbeers like Paulaner from Tesco.

Worth paying a bit extra for something that tastes a lot better than Carling or Fosters

Those 3 available from like Teso, Sainsburys, Asda etc? Never heard of them to be honest. Will definitely try them then.

Will be good to see everyones top3 and how each persons favourites differ

You can find good ales in any supermarket thesedays. well worth checking websites like beeradvocate or ratebeer to get some ratings from users.

The Krombacher and Paulaner are only at Tesco. But every supermarket has its own commerical tie in with a better German company. Waitrose will sell Bitburger & Sainsbury will sell Warsteiner for instance.

The Salvator double-bock is good.

Too bad you don't get any of the US microbrews...

Three of my favorites:

Tescos alcohol aisles are actually very interesting!.

In terms of local I'd have to say 'The Bunch of Grapes' in Pontypridd. Great wheat beer. Run by the Otley brewing company. O1 beer and all that. On tripadvisor and it won some award the other day.

I've never been able to get on with ales because of the served at room temperature thing. I like my drinks either hot (tea / coffee) or ice cold (lager, juice, water), so ales have always just felt wrong on a very basic level - neither refreshing or warming. That being said, I did get tricked by the other half in to trying one called Hoptimus Prime (mostly due to the Transformers logo on the pump!) which wasn't bad, and another called "Prometheus" by Milton breweries, who's beers are all named after various mythology figures for some reason.

As for lager, I'll take Budwar or Pilsner Urquell whenever they're available.
