Poacher is my favourite beer. It is a bitter brewed by Whitbread to a strength of 3.4% ABV, which makes it an ideal session beer. And at 1.59 per pint (as at 18-Apr-2000), also makes it the cheapest beer in the Pub which is why a lot of other people seem to drink it. Personally I drink it because I like the taste, don't like Whitbread Best, can't cope with Flower's Original and prefer Bitter to Lager.
