I'm sorry for your loss.
Batemans XP, Courage Directors, Landlord and Castle Eden are are all great bitters in traditional British pubs.
Yeah the Pale ale market has boomed to the decline of the bitter. Pale ale and Blond ale and Gold ale and anything else more creamy is popular. I don't mind them but bitter outside of pubs is getting a little more scarce IMO.
What is it abut cold drinks. Guinness, Even though it's not the great Irish stuff is now cold in the UK. It takes away the slightly bitter taste that makes it iconic and becomes more quaffable for the masses. It is no longer Guinness IMO not that it was the proper stuff anyway.
Not a fan of Guineas. I can drink it. Not a massive fan of dark beers but the ones I drink occasionally are 7-10%, Guiness is 4.2?
Don't really like bitter beer either.
Generally go for craft beers or a euro style lager if I'm doing a macro beer.

Drunk a Carlsburg pilsner tonight with dinner. Cheap macro lager.
Did not like the chocolate stout I had.
Lager goes with Indian meals. Generally have a Kingfisher or Budweiser.
