Another one to try was gooseberry beer... so... good...
i like the beers over there in short bursts, but cask ales tend not to have the taste that a well crafted micro brew, Belgian, or German beer do.

London Pride is well worth a stop in a pub, however.

i'm not a huge fan of Hoegaarden, but it has its spot. when you get into the Belgian beers (fun fact: Philadelphia consumes more Belgian beer than any other city in the world outside of Belgium) there are better options, IMO.

i will also note that spitting on the fruit is a bit silly... steak can stand on its own without seasoning, but the seasoning can be nice. Blue Moon, for example, is fantastic with a orange slice thrown in there.

as far as Corona... throw a shot of Bicardi Limon into a bottle and you got yourself a "diver down." only problem with this drink is that you're hammered in about an hour.
