Favorite Ale

Post by Fat Rich »

Yup I'm a Guinness and lager man, man.

I am only saying that your local offie didn't overwhelm you with ale from the county that invented a hops, barley, yeast & sugar drink that wasn't made from girders.

I'm a big fan of Bombardier, but if it's local ale then Wild Boar from the The Slaughterhouse Brewery in Warwick

Yup, it works, second bottle of that Cumberland stuff tastes nicer and the first was very nice :-)

Anyways, back to putting the forks back together and on bike :))

I do like the Old Speckled Hen. Fusty Ferret, and I do love to see Fullers London Pride on the pumps.
Just lately, I've taken a liking to Knights Malvern Gold Cider. Mmmmm. Very moorish. :-bd

the problem with bottled ales is they can be quite different from the draft version :roll: my local club does some cracking guest ales.
some real oddities in amongst them like one called palmers poison named after a murderer :shock:

morris dancers really? lager was produced for women as they could not drink bitter

As a CAMRa member and homebrewer I resent that although Morris dancing and ale drinking do seem to cross sometimes. :-t

If you are into bottled beer white shield is quite common and used to be good, I find bottled beer tends to be quite thin and gassy compared to on draught though.
Ride it like you stole it. Dissident.

I done a pub management course a while back & one of the teachers described CAMRA folk as Plain clothes Morris Dancers. =)) =))
