Ralph, my first encounter with Castle Eden ale was at Oliver's Mount, Scarborough. I can't remember the exact brew, (late 80s - early 90s) but I do remember enjoying it.
The only other I've had from your list of your local breweries, is Newky Brown, though I've never sampled it at it's original strength, of 6.5% ABV.

Last night, I had the fortune to sample Charles Wells Bombardier Reserve, (The Colonel's Choice) but hand pulled, and at 5.2% ABV. It was excellent, and much favoured by most ale drinkers in the pub, which was a Charlie Wells house for many many years. http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/664/96419/

BTW, I've had a couple of glasses of Bombardier in The John Bull Pub...................in Toulouse of all places.

I asked for a pint (my ignorance) and the barman pulled the beer. Looking at the glass, I said, "That's not a pint", and the barman replied (in a French accent) "You are correct Monsieur, however, it's as close to a pint as you are going to get in here."
I had forgotten that they were serving in 500ml glasses, and not pint glasses.

Cheers,

Jock.

Ralph, its because once viewed its not a 'new post' anymore.


Try using 'active topics',


Or 'tools' - 'quick links' - 'todays posts'.


I prefer the latter of the two.

Apparently Ralph, The John Bull Pubs in Europe, are part of the Charles Wells pub Group. http://www.johnbullpubs.com/our-history

You have to keep the beer thread going Ralph!! As said just look in Active topics for all posts in date order or also Subscriptions shows just posts your active in.


Follow our barmy adventures at Hank the Tanks Website or for really anarchic motorhome tomfoolery visit Motorhome Fruitcakes (Parental Guidance required)
