Jolly Boys Brewery Jolly Collier Porter 4.3%, in the Leopard, Doncaster yesterday.

A very nice dark brown porter from the Wakefield brewers. Bitter, rich and smooth with malt, chocolate, coffee and dark fruit flavours.

Paid a visit to the Don Valley Tap, Wool Market, Doncaster recently, sampling a couple of their beers ...

Bit O' That 4.0%, a best bitter, smooth, dark and malty.

Gongoozler 4.5%, described as a 5 Malt Stout, it does indeed have plenty of malt, some sweetness (honey, toffee and vanilla) and fruit (citrus and berries).

Both very enjoyable.


On your recommend. The Bit O That was excellent, and the best bit now about the Wool Market is that you can get Indian food at lunch time. Compliments this first class beer outlet somewhat.Top job. :thumb:

Brew York Tonkoko 4.3%, in the Queens, Doncaster at the weekend ...

A dark brown stout. Described as Bounty in a glass, it's hard to disagree. Chocolate, coconut, lactose and vanilla. Sweet and delicious.

Dunham Massey Chocolate Cherry 3.8%, in the Lower Angel, Warrington last night ...

A red / brown mild with a cherry aroma. Flavours are cherry, milk chocolate plus hints of caramel and liquorice. Very pleasant.

Just returned from a couple of very enjoyable days in Anglesey, based in Beaumaris.

The places which serve real ale in Beaumaris are mainly hotel bars such as the Castle Court (our base), the Bulkeley Hotel, the Liverpool Arms Hotel & Ye Olde Hull's Head. There was however a Robinsons pub, the George & Dragon.

Most enjoyable drinks of the week were ...

Hancocks HB 3.6%, a best bitter, in Ye Olde Bull's Head.
JW Lees Tan Y Ddraig 4.0%, a variation on their best bitter, in the Bulkeley Hotel.
Robinsons Stout 4.2%, in the George & Dragon.

Whilst in Anglesey, a visit had been arranged to the Druid Brewery in Penysarn, a village overlooked by Parys Mountain.

This cottage brewery was born out of the proprietors love of home brewing and the local demand for their ales and ciders.

Ales sampled were ...

The Raven 4.9%, a very nice Oatmeal Stout with chocolate and coffee flavours evident along with the oatmeal.

Renaissance Porter 6.5%, a chocolate influenced porter who's flavour and potency become more apparent as you progress. Also very nice.
