    Well, I can report that I've tried two so far, and both were excellent. The pale ale was very good, and the wheat beer was really, really wheaty, almost like a malted milk biscuit. It was lovely.

    Holy **** I've never heard of that - having looked it up, you know I am going to have to buy some? Is it as good as it looks?

    The Ola Dubh is a nice evening, sitting at the fire, porter style beer.
    Thick and gloopy and not for downing pints of seeing as it's 8%.

    I have a nice Victorian half pint tankard that suits it very well. As an aside, if your tankard has a monarchs initials and a number underneath you can use this link to find out where it originated.
    It adds a good personal value to an old tankard

    I spent a very pleasant evening in the pub on Friday drinking Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, 8.2%. A little sweet to start with, but after the fourth bottle, I got right into it... :lmao:[h=1][/h]

    Summer lightening is a really good beer! If you like it then try Rebellion Blond slightly more malt in flavor but like summer lightening can be drunk out the cupboard or out the fridge!
