General discussion / Re: Guinness Surger
« on: March 04, 2021, 09:13:02 PM »
Interested in the feedback on the surger versus the likes of the Blade etc (which seems to go for extraordinary prices online)

I know they are different types of drink but a man will do anything to get a pint
Some drinking in the blade Taylor. 14 pints I think. Were as the Torps, with sub machine are only 3.5 pints. No difference in quality between the two, and more selection with the Torps and the sub machine would be a far smaller outlay. I have a sub machine and few mates have a blade. The blade definitely the job when there is a few of yous on the pints. Quality wise I would say the beer is noticeably better than the bottled or draught beer, but just not quite as good as a fresh pint in the bar. Though I cant tell is that a taste thing or a nostalgic reason at this stage. Good to hear the craic about the Guinness surger from Gallsman as i was tempted about getting one but was worried that it might be a bit of gimmick. I suppose there is an element of that with blade/sub. You'll have people say sure its not worth the extra for your drink compared to your bottles or cans. I personally think that wee bit extra cost plus the initial outlay for the unit is worth it for the added satisfaction especially with the current circumstances.

14 pints is a brave sup alright - I thought it was only 8 or 10.

Like you maybe its just the nostalgia Im after to get as close as possible to a draught pint.

The problem would be if you had the blade in the house the thought of pints as and when you want them could lead to messy nights[/i]]The problem would be if you had the blade in the house the thought of pints as and when you want them could lead to messy nights[/b]  ;D
That's what ruled the blade out for me. I always have a habit of finishing a torp if I left one in. Normally good for a week or even 2 once opened. But I would have a wee pint on the Sunday or even midweek if I left an unfinished one in. Doing that with a blade could leave me taking a fair few extra pints lol. Just checked there blade is 8 litres so around 14 pints alright.
The pints from the sub are better than some of the shit they serve in the bars around the town. Such as rockshore and carlsberg , the only bar that they are any better in would be the taphouse ,good moretti,Heineken  and tiger
The blade would be too much temptation everytime you walked past it with a few pints in the keg.

I've had no antifreeze in my car for 3 years, just water. Is it a fraud?
I've a VW Beetle - never had a drop of antifreeze near it in 48years & still going strong
Haha, good one,did you  add air instead.

Pitch was heavy for first game on Friday night and grass too long,you would have needed your wellies along the sideline as it was like a bog. Big colin not there anymore which would probably be the reason the semi circles  were different sizes.

I thought MOT cover notes were being sent out automatically?

Havenít got one yet, and MOT is up end of June.

Whatís the deal? Anybody else in this predicament?

I had two cars coming up on their dates and both automatically updated, previous to covid you had to book the test and then you received the extension.

I bought a car during all this and changed owner online but its near 10 weeks and no Tax book yet, anyone else have this problem?
Bought  a car from prentice trade ,portadown 9th march, no log book yet ,only got through to them last week as they are back at work now,they said they are dealing with it and are to get back to me. Swansea hard to get through to doesn't help. Typed registration  into dvla website and car is  coming up as taxed and mot renewed automatically from Saturday for 6 months.
