    That reminds me of possibly the worst hangover I've ever suffered. Many years ago, I was the driver and I kept up with the drinkers by consuming quite a large number of glasses of Barbican (or it could have been the equally lovely Caliber). I woke up the next morning with the hangover to end all hangovers. I put it down to the strange mix of chemicals used to create that not-beer taste.

    I used to drink (bottled) Kaliber, Ron', & I would always suffer the morning afterwards as if I had been drinking the same quanity of lager containing alcohol.

    most non-alcoholic beers are pretty vile IMHO.

    if one has the misfortune to be admitted to one of the special hospitals such as broadmoor then they are the only beers on offer for patients to purchase from the canteen.

    though maybe i could order SEEDLIP if my supervising psychiatrist says it's ok (hypothetically were i ever to become a patient in broadmoor).

    We also make some of the worst. Are you old enough to remember Star Light? Although when it comes to making a lot of really abysmal beers, Australia would surely win hands down.

    Watneys Star Light - so weak it could have been legally sold in the US during prohibition X)
    Think my first pint was 1/5d, tasted dreadful - think it was either Ushers or DD, so far back just can't remember - felt like a king drinking it X)

    When I was about 15 years old, a mate and I went in to a pub and asked for two glasses of beer. After a short discussion with the landlord, we settled for Brickwoods Mild which, if I remember that far back, was about 1/6 a pint. Possibly the last time I drank Mild.

    I'm surprised you were able to keep up as I deduced that the only reason people keep on drinking after anywhere from 2 to 4 pints or so is because the alcohol has started to kick in.
    Otherwise no matter how much you like the taste the body tends to say that's enough.
    I've never drunk anywhere near 5+ pints of anything non alcoholic.
    I did try these non alcoholic beers and after about 2 pints that was me done.

    It's 0.05% alcohol so you'd have to drink about 100 pints of it to get the same amount of alcohol as, say, a pint of Old Peculiar. And after a 100 pints of Kaliber, you'd feel a lot more than old and peculiar!

    I can't recall exactly how many I had but a rough estimate would be 8 to 10 half-pint bottles. I'd never do it again.
