Best beer ever was Green King Abbot ale circa 1970's to the mid 1980's. Unfortunately they had a fire at the brewery and lost their yeast. Like most brewery's they had a sample stored in deep freeze at national yeast bank but the beer has never been the same since and may take another 20 years or so to get back to the same level. A good lesson to us brewers that yeast is the most important ingredient we use. Modern day beer - Timothy Taylor Landlord when kept properly. We spent 4 days at a pub about 12 miles from the brewery and it was sex in a glass.
