    Seconded,I've always enjoyed their XX mild.Shame on the new owners but at least they are maintaining the GK ethos.

    The Grinch here, I'm not that bothered. I've always compared it to Midland or other milds and found it lacking in body and just about everything else.
    When Young's were kings of London they did a sort of mild that I think was called Best Malt Ale or something similar. It was dreadful, at least XX wasn't as bad as that!
    If the new GK owners are serious about their pubs they will allow any keen tenant or manager to stock a mild of their choice. Sarah Hughes Ruby at Wolverhampton's Sunbeam? There's a thought!
    Adnams do a mild that is currently only available in March. I'm sure they could step in at least for the old East Anglia estate.

    Not necessarily Disappointment of the Week, rather Bizarre Experience of the Week after a half-hour spent in Flight Club.

    The video clip link on the website here isn't for this branch yet, but you'll get an idea of what to expect. If you dare...

    Ah yes - Kevin Rowland and not in a dress. Apparently the large photo of Jocky Wilson was a mistake?
