Hasn't Strongbow been in Thailand for many years? I used to occasionally drink it in Bangkok. Did they stop bringing it in at some point?

Jesus, is Strongbow really the best selling cider in the UK??? I'll stick to some premier brands - like anything apart from Strongbow - thanks!

I've noticed these recently and I was under the impression that what is available here from Strongbow, is actually brewed in Thailand?

I'd rather drink gnat's p**s!

I don't know if I would try this stuff, unless I already had a half dozen cans of something else. :? Maybe it's good for breakfast. :shock: :D

In my 20's we drank beer mixed with tomato juice a lot. It was good for midday when you didn't want to get buzzed and seemed to be a good "hair of the dog" for hangovers. Bartenders made it; some called it a red beer and some a bloody beer. It was actually pretty good. I wouldn't do it to a good beer but the mass produced American beers are actually improved by adding something to cover up the lousy taste.

I don't remember the exact proportions, but it would not be half and half; more beer and less tomato juice than that. Start with 2/3 beer to 1/3 tomato juice or even 3/4 beer to 1/4 tomato juice and adjust to your taste from there. Use the cheapest beer you can find. Chang might be a good one to do this with.

Thanks. I did some reading, seems people even use bloody mary mix or V8 juice to make it spicy. And yes, cheap beer!

Guys, I just tried beer Chang with Clamato, I have to say it's utterly vile! :D

No saving graces anywhere. But I'll try anything once; twice if I like it. :shock:

Perhaps it's the clam ingredient? I would give it a go with V-8, and perhaps try using a normal Singha for comparison before or after the Chang mix? I think using a Leo or similar it would be too light and watery. Pete :cheers:

We used to drink a lot of "red" beer in Montana. Just beer and tomato juice. If wanted to spice it up you added a little tobassco sauce. It gave any beer a little more body.
