Right now I've gone mad for the tesco/marsden's revisionist rye ale. It's £1.25 p 500ml, dry hopped with citra and Amarillo. God it's good. Luckily I need to stock up on bottles for my next kit (way to Amarillo, guess why I chose it), so it's a good excuse to get tons of it in. Nt that I need an excuse.

There are about 6 others in the revisionist range. Tried the steam, saison, dark ipa and they are all pretty good.

Hi Dave, Hoping to get the Amarillo kit on the go next weekend. Will report progress on the relevant thread in the kit review board. Did a few extract style kits back in my 20s and remember being amazed at how good they were, so high hopes for this one!

Not sure how widely available this one is but if you ever get the chance try Morocco Ale by Daleside Brewery. It's a spiced dark ale with one of the most interesting flavours I've ever come across.

Honestly it depends on what I fancy

If I want a hoppy beer I love a St Austells Proper Job, darker beers Hobgoblin or Old perculier. I also like an old crafty hen too

It's gotta be an old dairy gold top ipa from a relatively new Kentish brewery called old dairy.
or a bottled conditioned blue top yum yum














or a blue top bottle conditioned old dairy

Not tried the St Austells but the other three you list are favourites of mine too.
