    Mr Foleys seems to have a BD Krap Kraft Keg quite often. I had my unlucky experiences at the usually reliable Pivni in York.

    Easy nomination for this one and it is Fullers London Pride we had in the Ship at Polmear last night. Vinegar.

    Was Pride the only thing they'd got on the handle? I fear Pride is the token real ale in too many pubs where the chances of the staff knowing how to deal with it properly and thus of it being of drinkable quality are too low to risk buying it. I always default to Wifebeater or Guinness on such occasions.

    Mind you Fullers are doing alright, and as CMIC members will know their share price is doing very nicely thank you. Pride has a good reputation and people will clearly pay a premium price for it even if the reality doesn't always match the promise.

    The pub with the bad London Pride on had 5 handpulls, but only London Pride and Doom Bar were on if I remember right. Taylor Landlord had a turned round clip, and another, Otter I believe had been on too. Didn't fancy Doom Bar so left the London Pride in the glass.

    Star - Floral Dance , it looked good and i put the bad after taste down to me not being 100% well , but after a few others tried it the final decision was that it was bloody horrible , tastes like my socks smell after a hot heavy day in work boots

    Had a very Iffy Pint of Old Speckled Hen It was absolute dire Flat with a horrible sweet taste took it back but as it was the only Ale on tap I settled for a Pint of Guinness instead which was passable but not perfect. Mind it was a G/K house which was full of lager drinkers a customers stuffing there guts no ale drinkers in there.
    Don't You just hate Pubs that say
    ( We don't stock any Real Ales as theres Just no call for it.)
