My Conniston Bluebird Bitter clone (Bluebird Bitter) as I don't have a clue what the original is like.

I just had a Hobgoblin Gold. It is one of the most vile beers I've ever had. It's like carbonated golden syrup. It is an awful, lingering, pestilent, sickly mawkish bottled horror. It's like my mouth was raped by toffee apples but the apples shied away because they didn't want to provide some acidic balance. It's absolutely diabolically awful. I've just been through a few of my homebrews that I thought weren't that great but they're like leviathans compared to this diabetic filth.

I didn't like it.
You've quite a way with words drunkula, nice review :laugh8:

Tower Brewery Burton Imperial IPA - not bad, sort of an odd trad British style IPA but with new world hops, and also a bit lighter than most traditional IPA's - I now that makes it sound like a an american IPA but I cant quite put my finger on how it differs from that style ~ yeast, perhaps? OK, not sure I would actively seek it out, but would be interested o try it on hand pump.

Adnams Broadside. Phew. This slips down nicely for a strong ale, doesn't it! Loving it, don't know what the hops are but they are very Fuggle like. Yum yum.

I love broadside its very complex and hard to pin down hop wise, another is mac champion flows down the pipes like a rolls Royce if you were blind folded you would never say these 2 ales were as strong as they are :beer1:

An imperial stout brewed by our friends and local microbrewery Pub Dog Brewing Co. in our small town. Aged with cacao nibs, cherries, and orange, in a bourbon whiskey barrel. It doesn't suck.

They do these collaboration brews, where a local liquor store buys the bottling from a single cask of whiskey, and the brewery ages a beer in that same cask.

I agree, Champion really is a lovely, and very dangerous, pint. I've sank three before and regretted it the next day!
