    It was Saddle Black but I noted the abv as 5.1%. It was probably in a Midlands JDW possibly during the October festival. I can't think why Purity would do any keg as apart from that one I've found...

    I was introduced to Ye Olde Mitre by a Geordie bloke when I first started working in Holborn in 1975. The attraction then was that it was hard to find not the fact it was Ind Coope. My first...

    What did you make of the Saddle Tank? I'd put it on a par with Doom Bore. Marston's seem to have completely lost the plot. I also have severe doubts about Purity. Their UBU in the local Rose & Crown...

    I make you right and Hornchurch is in London not Essex. I had no idea where Albany Park was and had to look it up! SE London was largely a complete mystery to me before going round the JDWs and some...

    I'd agree with that and I'd say Watney's Stingo was better. I also preferred Lees Moonraker to Owd Roger (and Old Tom).
