Mini real ale festival in the Corner Pin, Doncaster...

Two interesting ales sampled in the Lower Angel, Warrington yesterday ...

Muirhouse Simple Simons Stout 4.5%, cocoa, coffee and liquorice flavours. Roasted malts leading to a dry finish.

Empire Rum Porter 4.7%, a little rum on the nose but much more on the palate. Slightly smokey too. Nice in moderation.

Midnight Magic 4.9% from the Bristol Beer Company, recently sampled in the Sheffield Tap was a delicious lactose, fudge, roasted barley and chocolate flavoured stout.

Another couple of excellent brew, this time in the Lower Angel, Warrington were ...
Davenports Original 4.2%, a Best Bitter with biscuit, toffee and marmalade flavours, quite quaffable.
Shepherd Neame Bishops Finger 5.0%, not one I see too often on cask. Malty with caramel and toffee flavours.

Best of a recent evening in Altrincham was Severn Brewing Chocolate Stout 4.3% in the Old Market Tavern, which ticked plenty of boxes.

Some enjoyable ales in York on Sunday ...

Valhalla - Valhalla Odins Judgement 6.0%, badged as Valhalla but brewed by Yorkshire Heart, this is a surprisingly easy drinking amber winter ale considering it's strength. Malty and fruity.

The Punch Bowl (Nicholsons) - Black Sheep Special Ale 4.4%, nice and malty and preferred to the bitter.

The Maltings - Settle Brewery Nine Standards Porter 4.7%, an excellent caramel and coffee porter from a brewery which is new to me.

York Tap - Five Points Brewing Co Railway Porter 4.8%, roasted malts, coffee and just a hint of liquorice.

Peerless Oatmeal Stout 5.0% in the Looking Glass, Warrington at the weekend was very nice. A slightly roasted dark mahogany stout with oatmeal, coffee and molasses.

Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby 6.0%, enjoyed again, this time in the Lower Angel. Flavours include caramel, toffee and dried fruits. Although sweet, this dark ruby ale has a slightly nutty taste.

Best of a visit to Leeds yesterday ...
