Upon your recommendation next time I'm in a pub with a reputation for knowing how to keep their stuff I'll give it a shot.

Cheers for the head's up, along with all the other beer and ale fans who put in an appearance on the thread.

Sadly you won't be drinking Gales.

Up for today is Scotland's 80 Shilling.

This is apparently from Scotland's oldest working brewery in Dunbar.

I found it to be mild but not weak in its malty taste, nicely in the middle.

A strong 7.....very drinkable.

Urrrgh. They should stick to making whisky up here. Scottish beers are dreadful. The only difference I find between 80/- and 70/- is that the former contains a higher concentration of sh*te. But McEwans is worse still. Get stuck in a place where they only serve that and you'll be begging for Foster's.

I was never a bitter drinker till I got bought a pint by accident in a country pub in West Sussex about 25 years ago - it was like an angel crying on one's tongue, but you have less than a 10% chance of a similarly pleasant experience if you drink ale, it's fresh like cheese, yoghurt or wine - if a landlord does not know how to keep beer you'll drink vinegary crap whatever the brand - keg bitter is awful, stale beer boiled and pumped with gas, avoid, in a pub ale must be 'pulled' not come out of a tap, it was Gale's Ale from Sussex that converted me btw, but bottle beers and draught may be very different, however the Czechs do black lager (roasted/burnt caramelised cereal in the brewing process), budvar did it in a bottle and it was OKish, but if you get a good czech black lager it's like a choir of angels masturbating on one's tongue, the sweetness and the bitterness cancel each other out and a subtle nuttiness delights the palate. Swiss and Poles do it too - but the Poles do some horrible stuff a bit like an old-fashioned 'mild' which is another tipple that needs strict conditions if you are not to be left with something nasty swilling around your trap.

Are not the best dark beers Belgian trappist ones? Chimay in various strengths and Leffe Brune are readily available but in Brussels you can get a rich and wide variety.

Iím a huge fan of the craft beers, although I donít know much about them!

Hope you donít mind me joining in. Beavertown RYE IPA, £2.50 a can in refreshers shortlands. A fairly strong IPA at around 6.4%. One of my favourite brewers but not overly keen on this one.

6/10
