  • Yesterday I was trying out the Hobgoblin from the Wychwood Brewery, and tonight I'm enjoying a cold Bishops Finger.

    Both are excellent, but I am a bit fond now of the Hobgoblin ruby beer.

    Any other recommendations?

    I remember an Belgian beer years ago, that was 14.5% abv, had the texture of Guinness, the smell of chocolate, and the taste of brandy.
    Perfection in a winter ale/beer.

  • The best pint of ale i think i've ever had was in a wetherspoons. It was one of the guest ales at the time and i think it was called JCB. It was amazing.

  • Anything from the Dent brewery is excellent, if you can get it. Kamikaze is a favourite. Also T'owd Tup.

  • salisbury has amazing ale from the local hopback brewery. if you can get them, try them out, they do sell them bottled in some places also. crop circle is my fav.

    I know these guys. Summer Lightning is my fave.

  • As I've said many times before.. Adnams FTW

    that was my fave at first, but i find i dont feel quite as healthy after a few the next day ha, and only with that one.

  • Off the top of my head. Two ales I have enjoyed this weekend.

    Deuchars IPA,

    Spitfire

  • Goes down well at dinner parties and private views.

  • A few of my favorites:

    Ballards Best
    Timothy Taylor Landlords
    Adnams Bitter
    Ringwood Best
    Bowmans Swift One

  • The holy grail of stouts though is the DogFish Head Worldwide Stout, and here is what the Liverpool Echo thought of it.

    I think I need at least a crate of the DogFish Worldwide Stout each winter.

  • If you're in the Hoxton area head to the Wenlock, best place for decent beer in the East End.

  • Goes down well at dinner parties and private views.

    the only solution when skint!

    I'm strictly a lager drinker. Mainly wife beater, tyskie ( a new found love) and heineken (choice lager of slayer guitarist jeff hanneman). Enjoyed kroenenbourg for many years, but have gone off it's slightly citris after taste.

    This is why I went of it too

    I'm in agreement there, also Hobgoblin did a whitches brew specially for Haloween... lovely ale.

  • Old Growler - Nethergate Brewery (some of the others are pretty good too).

  • Tanglefoot, from the Badger Brewery in Dorset.
    Really nice.

    Oh - just had my first Guiness Red.
    No thankyou very much.... what a load of piss. Give me the real deal from now on.

  • Anyone had Banana Bread Beer? Delicious.

    Also, Innis&Gunn is £1 a bottle in Tesco's at the moment. Score!

  • Goes down well at dinner parties and private views.

    I was in Sainsbury earlier in Sydenham and some jokers had put the special brew in between the non alcoholic beers - cracked me up!

  • I really like the Stout you get in Sam Smiths pubs! It is well cheap and tastes a bit like coal.

    Curiously, it went great with Pizza...

    I also like:
    Marston's Old Empire
    Fuller's London Pride
    Cain's IPA
    Many more that I've tried at various beer festivals that are yum.

    My favourite ale is definitely Skull Splitter

    Can't drink it too often, it get's me fucked.

    I tried Mead once at a beer festival. It was delicious. Try it.
