At home, I am pretty used to drinking canned lager of 5% strength (Stella, Becks, Grolsch etc.). Last night I tried some cans of Shepherd Neame Spitfire, rated at 4.5% After a couple, I felt much more light headed than normal.
Questions: Are ABV ratings for lager and ales comparable? And when
drinking ales compared to lager, does the alcohol enter the blood
Or maybe I'm not used to "proper" beer!
