The Lower Angel, Warrington had an interesting and enjoyable ale from the Beer Monkey Brew Co. yesterday. Bitter Revival 3.9%, an amber coloured bitter, malty & nutty and really rather nice :smile:

Sampled some enjoyable ales in Doncaster yesterday during a meet up with former work colleagues ...

The Draughtsman - Wilde Child Darkness Cometh 4.6%, not the best chocolate and orange stout I've had but certainly decent.

The Plough - Acorn Barnsley Bitter 3.8%, preference would always be for the Stancill version but this is always nice enough.

The Queens - Bradfield Farmers Belgian Blue 4.9%, wonderful. Apparently, they're on their 4th barrel this week :smile:

Marketplace Alehouse and Deli - Jolly Sailor Dark Nights 5.0%, a very nice chocolate and coffee porter.

The Leopard - Two Roses Nailmaker 4.3%, an enjoyable chocolate and vanilla porter.

The Corner Pin - Bradfield Farmers Brown Cow 4.2%, an excellent chestnut coloured ale, lightly malted with a hint of citrus.

Pre Test Match (Leeds) ...

Leeds Midnight Bell 4.8% in the Brewery Tap. Always enjoyable.

Camerons Strongarm 4.0%, in the Head of Steam.

Post match ...

Stod Fold Dark 4.8%, a chocolate and blackcurrant porter, in the Head of Steam. Very nice.

Leeds Fall 4.5%, a pleasant spicy winter warmer, in the Station Wetherspoons.

Almost forget to mention Bury on Saturday night. In fairness, not too many beers to get excited about and a run of the mill selection (for my tastes), across four different outlets.

The best two of the evening were those sampled in the Robert Peel ...

Bradfield Farmers Brown Cow, which I'd had the previous day in the Corner Pin and Swannay Dark Munro 4.0%, a ruby red mild with some chocolate and a hint of rye on the aftertaste.

The Corner Pin currently has available Bradfield Farmers Stout 4.5%, roasted malts and oats, coffee and caramel. Always welcome.

Also, Geeves Captain Gingerbread 4.3%, a hazy wheat beer. Some citrus fruits leading to a root ginger finish. Quite quaffable.

Corner Pin last night ...

Brains Bread of Heaven 4.0%, a dark brown bitter which I've not had for some time. Some sweetness, possibly treacle or syrup, with the malt. Nice.

Otter All Black 4.0%, a dark beer, reportedly a bitter. Apparently has orange, not overly obvious. Not unpleasant but not quite as advertised.

9 Gallon, Warrington last night ...

4T's Absolutely Plummed 6.0%, a nice plum porter, strong ABV but a subtle fruity flavour.

A few beers in Doncaster yesterday, the highlights being ...

Exit 33 Oat Stout 5.0%, roasted malts and some chocolate, in The Queens.

Wychwood Bah Humbug 4.3%, a Christmas ale / Winter warmer with toffee and fruit flavours, in the Gatehouse (they had one or two other Christmas ales on already too).

Little Critters Sultanas of Swing 6.0%, a stout, not dissimilar to their Nutty Ambassador.

Hawkshead Brodies Prime 4.9%, in the Spinning Mule, Bolton last Saturday (pre Genesis tribute band Mama), was a very nice dark ale, sweet and rich with chocolate and treacle flavours.
