I don't mind the odd one or two. If I'm having golden or pale ales I prefer to have them before getting on to the darker ales.


Yep wash the taste out of your mouth :lol:

Courage Directors located in the Black Bull, Doncaster last night :smile:

Also an interesting and welcome find was Kansas Avenue (Salford) Smith and Tinker 4.0%, a chestnut ale packed with molasses, toffee and treacle.

Don Valley Brewery Amber Road 3.8%, an amber ale with hints of apricot and peach was pleasantly surprising in the Queens, Doncaster yesterday lunchtime.

George Gale's Seafarers Ale 3.6%, a golden best bitter in the Corner Pin was also pleasant enough.

Eagle and Child, Auckley, pre game Sunday. Kelham Island brewery 'It's goodnight from him' a 4% stout that my brother in law thought was bloody lovely (had a sip and it was nice) The blurb on the KIB site says A full bodied, smooth stout, brewed with five different malts including oat malt, gives this beer a rich malty flavour with notes of chocolate coffee and liquorice on the aroma.

Gary, one for you me thinks :wink:

Newark yesterday en-route to and from Southwell races ...

Peak Ales Paxton 4.4%, in the Ram Bar and Brasserie, a ruby red ale, malty with blackcurrant on the aftertaste. Pleasant without being spectacular.

Terrapin Naked Bliss 5.0%, in the Sir John Arderne, second time in a week and still absolutely wonderful.

Pheasantry Best Bitter 3.8%, in the Fox and Crown, not my favourite of this brewery's ales but always palatable enough.

York last night ...

Ilkley Smoked Witch 4.5%, in the Cross Keys. Only intermittently brewed, this is a Smokey and earthy dark ale. Nice.

The Hop Studio Mosaic 4.3%, in the Snickleway Inn. Described as an Oatmeal Pale but to this imbiber was just another grapefruit flavoured pale ale. Not to my taste.

Whitby Jet Black 4.5%, in the Valhalla Bar (opposite Pivni, must be relatively new). A very nice porter with chocolate and not too much liquorice which I've only previously had a couple of times.

Great Yorkshire Blackout 5.0%, in Pivni. Another porter which I've only previously had once or twice but is much to my taste being chocolate and vanilla flavoured.

Black Sheep (Limited Edition) Imperial Russian Stout 8.5%, in the Maltings. Packed with sweet things, chocolate, caramel, syrup and even a hint of brown sugar, very enjoyable in moderation.

Warrington, Saturday evening ...

Coach House Old Porter 4.2%, in the Looking Glass. Not a heavy porter, lightly flavoured with caramel. Nice.

Small World Thunderbridge Stout 5.2%, in the Lower Angel. Coffee and chocolate flavours with a definite pine influence. Would have preferred it without the pine flavour.

Ossett Turning Leaves 4.5%, in the Lower Angel. Described as a warming malty traditional ale with spicy and blackcurrant flavours but came across as a Red IPA. Disappointing.
