When I used to drive all the time, i'd either go for the southerner's favourite (half a shandy), or have something like Bitburger Drive (best non-alcoholic beer in the nearest bar to where I used to work). On those occasions when I didn't have my car with me, and especially after I started getting the train/tube to work, I would drink one or more of the following:-
Staropramen - It's pretty typical for a Czech lager. It has a nice strong flavour with plenty of those fancy words professional wine tasters use coming through on the pallete and the nose.The best thing is that it doesn't have a vile flavour such as Stella Artois has, which I am not particularly fond of.
Peroni - This is an Italian lager. It is usually expensive, but it comes in these awesome tall glasses. They're really cool. This has nice subtle flavours coming through under the main flavour. Ditto on the fancy words comment above.
London Pride - This is a pretty standard bitter, and is brewed in Chiswick. It's more a mild than a bitter, but they essentially come under the same heading these days. I love bitter, and the way you can drink ones with a lower alcoholic content, like this one at 3.7% ish, and not be either completely sozzled or bloated from bubbles.
AK - This is a local Hertfordshire brewery, and what I usually drink when out and about near my home. Not that I do that much, and i'm being honest when I say that. Pubs full of chavs or soccer nuts are not my cup of tea. Anway, I digest (heheheh). This is again a milder flavour, and doesn't bloat you. AK make a few different beers, my favourite being the traditional one (red pump logo).
Spanish Cider - If you don't particularly like English cider (pretend cider strained through cat's urine, if you will, like K, Diamond White, Strongbow, etc), then I recommend you to try its Spanish counterpart. I'm sure Roy must have had some of this at one point. The Ciderias in the north of Spain are the best to try it at, as they do that funky pouring from a height thing.
Efes - It's a popular beer in Turkey. I sampled many bottle when I was there a couple of years ago. I can't recall the taste properly, but I do remember it being nice.
Roland Deschain - Half prophet, half gunslinger, all Pastafarian!
