Redwell West Coast Pale Ale is £1.29 a can at Aldi at the moment and is a lovely drop for that price, really sharp, juicy and hoppy. Highly recommended.

Don't know if anyone's mentioned these, hell I might have myself somewhere amongst these pages, but can anyone remember a brace of beers called 'Darling' and 'Rampart' by the Border Brewery? Going back a long time now but they were absolute belters and I probably bought 90% of Rhythm & Booze's stock. Never to be seen again once they were gone. Gonna look 'em up right now...

I’ve had a few pints of that in the taphouse here in Norwich. A very nice beer

I have tried almost all of the supermarket beers and when I run out of homebrew I now only drink Fullers ESB or beers from these guys (and the odd Punk IPA)

Gamma Ray by Beavertown Brewery deserves a mention. Discovered that this spring and it's been my go-to all summer. Really turned me on to those big American hops.
