    Law obeyed, cobra goes very well with a curry!

    Today has included:
    Palmers Copper
    Flower Pots Four Candles (again)
    Owd Roger (couldn't resist)
    Youngs Special

    Proper job and Tribute making it's way all the way up to Manchester? Both good beers

    I have a full case of Tribute to tuck into with some friends when they come over.

    I do love Skinners Brewery's beers though.

    Unfortunately I am the Oncall Engineer for our site for the next week so it's no alcohol for me, but this Bavaria (0%) isn't too bad. It's nicer than most no / low alcohols on the market.

    I'm currently on Birra Moretti on 330ml cans due to a good offer at Amazon just before Christmas.

    I love these 330ml cans, usually Heineken Export (much better now than it was 15 years ago I promise!) or Budvar.

    Love Birra Moretti, gotta get a green suit one day!

    Also Budvar, my late father installed a lot of machinery for them in the 60's/70's. Great beer.

    okay. mainly irish ones, but carrig poachers pale ale is super serious nice, especially if you can find it on tap. eight degrees session pale ale is top notch. and one from toronto was fractured probably about 9% but really tasty, and i havent been able to get it this side of the pond unfortunately. but yeah, lets drink all the ale lads!

    Been drinking Deus over the holiday but drank a bottle of Italian lager bought from Tesco last night and it was really lovely!

    I like the rum one and the caramel sort of flavoured one but not keen on the lager.

    Current favourites are harvieston schehallion, punk IPA and drygate apple ale

    They do a very nice (and remarkably inexpensive) Wit 0.0% one as well.

    Morrisons was doing the same pack for £14. Really enjoyed the three but the amber was my favourite.

    Surprisingly still very cheap! But I agree the full is lovely, would never think it was 6% either!

    Beaver town neck oil is another one of my favourites

    Gone for the Wells 'Sticky Toffee Pudding' tonight. Influenced by one of the earlier posts.

    Nice.

    Having grown up in Germany I’m a Lager drinker. This has hit the spot recently,

    A Breton brew - Cervoise Lancelot - due to being there. A bit gingery, which was totally unexpected and undesired, but actually quite subtle so not too bad. Doesn't go well with foie gras though.

    No way can there be anything more horrid tasting than that foul brew I had the misfortune of sampling. NO WAY !!

    Franziskaner this evening. I prefer Schneider Weiss but it's a bit more difficult to procure here.

    After a week of work-imposed abstinence it's my turn for some tasty beers. First up is this magnificent Yorkshire ale. Probably the finest they make, IMHO. Cheers!

    So far for me this evening it's been the following:

    Not a great beer though be honest, but I am not much of a fan of Wheat beers


    A very drinkable beer with an interesting floral afternote.


    A quite nice brew but unremarkable.


    Nectar



    Cheers

    John

    I have not tried it, I will keep a look out.
    I do have a case of Beavertown Smog Rocket in the beer fridge. That's a good stout.

    For ale drinkers I can thoroughly recommend St Peters Brewery from Bungay in Suffolk.

    I'm having a Golden Ale as I type this. The Ruby Red is also excellent.

    I got diagnosed with coeliacs disease at 18, so have missed out on the joys of 'proper beer', and now have to tolerate gluten free beer which is basically mop bucket water

    Any other coeliacs on the forum? Whats your favourite GF beer? Mine has to be Daura GF.
