    I've had a few Milton beers down the years and I've found most of them passable, without being anything special. However, I'm quite partial to a pint of Nero, which is their take on an oat stout.

    Never tried Milton so to be perverse I'll check them out if I can. I have sadly had Fuggle Bunny Oh Crumbs, a sweet yucky mess, a real stinker, never again etc.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    I've had good and bad from Milton brewery. The best was on 26th January 2013, when I was in The White Lion in Norwich, drinking a pint of Pegasus just as Luton's winner was scored. More recently I had an ok couple of halves in The Coalheavers Arms near Peterborough. And just last week a pretty poor pint of Minotaur at Sheffield's Red Deer.

    I didn't think it was possible to make a beer which tastes of nothing at all, until I tried GK's hopeless and hopless Purple Reign last night. I wonder if they got the person whose birthday it celebrates to try it.

    Why do they persist in turning this crap out?

    And of course there are potential unintended consequences like it being interpreted as a tribute to the unexpected death of an American pop music icon. I had to endure a pint of their George and Flagon earlier in the week and that was rubbish!

    Me and the wife managed to drink four pints of George and the Flagon in our local Spoons last Saturday and it went down well,i even commented to my wife that it was a GK beer so may not be that good,there were no complaints from the wife so it must have been a decent drink.
    It may be the case that me and my wife are not too picky over want real ales we drink,but i really would not like to think so.
    We are all equal,but some are more equal than others

    Not at all There's a bloke in my local Spoons who also tries all the real ales and you can guarantee that if he likes one I probably won't and vice-versa. I haven't been around much there lately but I'm sure he would have really liked the George and Flagon. Neither of us are right and neither of us are wrong. He does drink the occasional John Smith's smooth crap, probably because it's cheaper. I think we would both condemn him for that although I don't think I've ever actually tried it!
