Loddon Russet from Oxfordshire, UK. I would add Ind Coope Burton IPA, but I only ever tried it in tip-top condition once. Hostan Red from the Czech Republic is superb, as are many of the beers produced by Primator and Kout.
Draft: probably the dark I had at the Hops & Barley sometime last year. Bottled: Saalfelder Bock or perhaps Augustinerbraeu Muenchen, Lagerbier Hell.
British ales and Czech lagers that taste like ales.
Yes and no. A big no when used as an excuse not to be creative... but keeping rice away from beer is no bad thing.
I am a real ale drinker from the country with the best beer in the world.
