    Well, yeah, of course you would. But it does depend on each person as to how much they can drink before becoming drunk. Some can get drunk on 3 pints, others take much more before even feeling the effects.

    When a student I used to be able to drink around 15 pints easily and still walk home without a problem. I expect these days I wouldn't manage more than 5 before feeling the effects!

    Anything from a tap is gassy as it has CO2 added to it. Anything on a hand pump has only the gas that is created in the fermentation process. Find a good pub in the Good Beer Guide and try some Real Ales. They are much less gassy and have far less chemicles added to them so they are less likely to sned you loopy. If you don't like real ales, try real ciders like Old Rosy or Westons(By real i mean none of these that comes in a bottle and you need to add ice to). They'll blow your head off but they are a lot less sweet and sickly than mass produced ciders.

    I agree about the cider. I do like bottles fizzy ciders like Magners, but I also sometimes like a nice pint of local cider from the tap. Normally that isn't fizzy at all and not as sweet as bottled cider and you might like it more.

    What is the average % of alchool in beer in UK?
    Here in Portugal it goes from 5,3% to 5,6% not to strong, and not to week.
    When i was in UK in 1995 i try a lot of beers and i remember that most of them were less alchool. Here in Portugal we see a lot of tourists from UK that drink the same amont of beer they drink in UK, and they go easly

    With 2 pins of half a letter 2x500ml i was easly fine, here with the same amont i start to smile...

    Neither Sweden or Norway suffers from high rates of alcoholism and suicides. I've read that Finland has a substantial problem with these things though, so maybe that's the country you were thinking of?

    It all depends what you are drinking, but in general it is lower than that. Most lagers and beers are around 4% in the UK I think. Real Ales and local Cider can be much higher. The Cider's sold at my local pubs is around 7.8%.

    You're right it's the Finns. Probably why the drivers are so fast.

    Not so true these days.
    Most bottled lagers in pubs tend to be 5%.
    A lot of the draft lagers are now also 5%

    More pubs are stocking Belgium beers these days which are stronger.
    Common ones are Leffe Blonde and Duvel, 6.6% and 8.5%
