Sitting in a bar in Manhattan drinking a Brooklyn Pilsner. Its 5.1% and very easy on the pallet.

Not normally a lager drinker, but no real ale out here.

Plenty of 'real ale' in North America (US and Canada) I lived in Nevada for 3 years and only rarely had to drink mass produced Piddle, I recently spent 3 weeks in Canada and Alaska on holiday, rarely drinking 'Larger'; unless it was something special like the Banff Ave Brewery Black Pilsner. http://banffavebrewingco.ca/

See this website for some local breweries in NY/Manhattan:

IPAs and Red Ales are very popular with Craft Breweries in North America, producing beers in the range of 3% to 9%! :o
This time of year you can often find Pumpkin Ale :)

I'm fully aware of north America IPA's. Yes pumpkin is on tap here but disgusting. When I say real ale, I mean British ale. The American stuff tastes like drain water.

:lol:
We'll have to disagree on that then.
They do have a wide variety, not just IPAs. I agree Pumpkin can be an 'acquired' (strange) taste, but I also found it varied between Breweries.
While the large US Breweries are generally even worse than certain well known UK national Dishwater brands, I've had plenty of decent craft ales in the US/Canada.
There are some rubbish tasting UK Ales too.
But anyway, this is only a Currently Drinking Topic.
I'll shortly be having a bottled beer with my dinner, I've got a wide choice in the fridge, but I think it'll be Sadler's Black IPA.

Redbook Ale is another nice one.

Guinness Foreign Extra Stout for me tonight.

Then I need to get my backside in gear and do some homebrew, in time for Xmas.
