Paul, I've got a wee something for you at P/boro, which I don't give out lightly I must add. : (BTW, you being a lover of port, have you tried Aldi's dark ruby one yet? )

Back on topic, ie, beer. My nearest local has 5 x pumps, and on Sunday one pump was down, and between the remainder, there wasn't a beer over 4% ABV. We keep asking him to have a regular at 5% or above, with the Grainstore Ten Fifty being our favoured choice, (former Ruddles County recipe, ie, a local flavour).
In the next "one pub" village along, (tiny compared to our "five pub" market town) the landlord has 8 or 9 x pumps dispensing anything from Black Sheep @ 3.8%, up to Jaipur @ 5.9% as well as the keg beers including Leffe Draught which is way way too expensive.

I see in the news, that "Craft Beers" appear to be on the rise and doing quite well. I don't recall having had any myself, under that term. Wetherspoons are doing a range of American style craft beers.

Cheers for now,

Jock.

Sounds cracking Jock, see you at the show.


Had a Marstons hand pulled the other day at a local pub, it was terrible, like dishwater, which is a shame because the food myself and Caroline had was top notch, beautiful.


Finished going on to the electric smooth pump, especially as Caroline was driving

Jaipur - thats a quality pint that is Jock. Only had it the once in a pub in north Essex, but would love to have another go at it

Some of the craft beers are very nice indeed, although they can be a bit too cold and gassy for my liking. Flavour wise, the few that I've had have been really nice.

Just lately, I am having a real liking for pale ale, a typical one would be "American Pale Ale". I like it's very pungent hoppy flavour and taste. Right up my street anyway

You're not wrong Steve. I too am into the Pale Ales, especially the higher ABV ones.

A couple of pals were on Hydes Prague this afternoon, http://www.perfectpint.co.uk/real-al...2/Hydes/Prague
and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Although I do like a dark malty beer, ie, Old Peculier, I found this dark beer to be more like a Porter, and it had too much of a roasted barley flavour for me......................so I had the Sharps Altlantic instead.

This is what is coming on the pump sometime soon.

And if it's anything near 3.95 a pint, he can sell it to someone else.

Cheers,

Jock.

T'owd Navigation

Nobby's Brewery
Type Dark Ale
ABV 6.1%
Aroma: sweet malts, fruity, floral. Flavour: fruits, sweet malts, warming with floral and nutty hints.

Sounds like an absolute dream of a beer Jock. Not had it and not even heard of it to be honest, but sure would like to try it.

Going to south London next week for pie & mash and then onto a summer lightning pub near Wimbledon...oooh cant wait for that one

Forgot to say Jock...I love an Old Peculier and drink it regular, but I know what you mean about porters. I have had the odd good one though like the plumb porter that I mentioned a short while ago in this thread somewhere. That was an exceptional porter and one of the best beers I've ever had.
