Guinness is the only stout you can get on draft. I think you can get Murphy's down south. What is the alternative stout across the water

Chinook American pale ale, second taste at 3 weeks.
Glad this was a slightly bigger batch as very drinkable despite being my beefiest attempt yet at 7%
- might send one of for the May competition.

Used to get Murphy's over here but I haven't seen it in ages, maybe 10 years even. Thinking about this, what happened to Caffrey's?

Westmalle Tripel followed by my last bottle of my English IPA. Ordered the ingredients for a second incarnation earlier today.

Is that a North Brewing Lost Cosmonauts?
That and Buxton Kingslayer were my favourites from the last Tesco range. Northern Monk's Faith in Futures is my favourite so far from the new lot.
Yes it's a nice drop

I wonder what hops they use. I was thinking Chinook and maybe centennial
I think their main hop is Yakima chief from digging around. I have a clone for crossroads but not sure how accurate it is as I haven’t brewed it yet. I would imagine the 3 c’s feature heavily though.
very tight lipped about their recipies I suppose for good reason

After a very nice rendang curry I’m clearing the palate with a duvel. Then the wine gets opened and I sleep on the sofa if I get a chance with a psycho pup in the house 2 weeks has felt like 6 months

Beamish! I used to love it, prefer it to Guinness. Used to be plenty about, in England and Ireland, I think it's quite rare now.

I am drinking Badgers Golden Champion.

Mostly because it comes in 'deep-collar' clear bottles! :laugh8:

I don't think I've drunk this before, although I often drink the Hobgoblin Gold and the Lidl one, whatever that's called.

But this is nothing like them! It has a very unexpected and strong hoppy taste. I don't know what hops they use, but they have really bunged some in there. And I don't mean that light, floral, hoppy taste. I mean that 'wipe that smile off your face' hoppy taste!

It’s still available but was taken over by molsen coors some years ago so that’s the reason behind its disappearance.

The nigerian guiness and west indies versions are better, if I find myself in the tesco beer isle I always pick Mcewans champions or broadside both better beers than any guiness for my money.
"If I find myself..."
This happens to me! I go in for fruit,veg and bog rolls and end up stalking beer!
