Wouldn't the lemonade in the half pint reduce the amount of larger though? Unless it's half a punt if lager with the lemonade on top which wouldn't then.be half a pint if shandy.


But it says half pint of lager vs a pint shandy in the original poll.

Aye, I just assumed there's be less alcohol in the half pint of shady cause of the lemonade. As it's only 1/4 pint larger in the half pint shandy. Where as the half pint larger is a full half pint of lager.

I've never had a shandy in my life but always assumed it was only like 20-30% lemonade rather than 50/50.

Now larger and Pepsi Max, there's a real drink. :datass:

Sounds like Pedz beat you to it, if his reading comprehension is anything to go by

Add a shot of Amaretto to make it a Dr Pepper.

Anyway, half a lager on its own or with another half a pint of lemonade on top is the same strength of alcohol.

Went through a phase of doing this when I was young - larger + coke + Amaretto = Good Time Juice™ :D

Another way of understanding this is to consider soluble painkillers. If you dissolve a 500mg paracetamol in a glass of water it's still a 500mg paracetamol simply suspended in water.

It's the same amount of alcohol but not the same strength surely?

The question is what has the most alcohol in it. If by strength you mean the taste then yeah it won't be as strong because you've diluted it and can ignore the northerners and enjoy your sugary beer :shifty:

How did this conversation come about? Given that I frequent only a handful of threads I can't help thinking there's some context I'm missing.

I’m still waiting for the ‘larger as in the drink larger’ joke explanation, I wouldn’t hold your breath.
