    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 was a classic example of a boring brown beer to avoid. The only one of their beers I've liked is a strong dark one of which I've forgotten the name.

    Rother Valley-Ruby Wheat Beer 4.4%abvark and grainy,:no cloves as I'd half expected, but background fruit.

    My BOTW-Goachers Special House Beer,taken at The Three Chimneys .I'd given up on the beer in this pub for over a year,but on Tuesday,it was fine.

    The Saddle Tank was at best less than average in the interest stakes,finding myself in a Marstons pub I had the other choice of Pedigree(which I have never liked) or the two Hobgoblins (normal and Gold), What did surprise me was I was charged £3.75 for the pint and a packet of crisps,It turns out all cask was £2.75 on Mondays ,albeit only Marstons beers available.Don't know the dark Purity beer, unless its the keg only 5.8% Saddle Black.

    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 their beers quite dull.

    Edit: Thanks to TP for confirming it isn't just me!!

    Agree on UBU. The dark one is Saddle Black which was very good on cask when I found it some years ago. Mad Goose is never a bad fall back but Gold has been taken off in my local due to inconsistent quality despite being on there for many years, having a dedicated following and a personal visit from the brewer.

    BOTW Parkway Brewing Black Widow. Dark and 4.9% but fairly unmemorable aside from being the only cask beer of the week.
