    I would be envious if it weren't for the obvious fact that that too is currently closed. (I've fixed it for you. )

    I like Old Peculier too, but I'm not impressed with the bottled version. The cask version has a complexity of flavour, whereas in bottle the sweetness dominates. Riggwelter from the bottle is pretty good, though. (Especially with the loose head that I got from glugging it into my old Y&J glass.)

    I've given up on Theakstons Best. In recent years I've had so many dire attempts by useless licensees that I won't waste my money on it. I would only drink it now (if only the pubs were open) mixed with OP to make XB. (Two parts best with one OP.)

    I used to have a stash of Riggwelters,must replenish in due course. Rigg was frequently found and enjoyed on my Autumnal forages around the Dales, but seemed to be less available of late.. Can't say that I came across.T'Old Tup, but I recall making Dent Aviator my BOTW a few years back.

    Try here, next time you're up north. Lovely pub in a very nice village and a beautiful valley. If things ever go back to normal.

    Evening all,so who's drinking what ?

    Just had a back of the cupboard bottle conditioned Marston Pedigree.2020-04-04 18.06.13.jpg

    There was no Burton Snatch,just a malty nose and there was a distinct tinny taste on drinking.Indestinct bitterness and overall just bland despite decent carbonation and a good head.I took a look at the dregs and could see no sign of any bottle conditioning .Although the label mentioned the Burton Union system,there was nothing special here 4/10.

    There's a bottle of Adnams Ghost Ship and a bottle of TT Landlord available in the cupboard.

    Why is the Landlord only 4.1% in bottle? Hadn't noticed that before. It's 4.3% on cask.

    Vocation Pride & Joy & Life and Death in cans also likely to be on the list.

    Then had a Two Tribes -session ipa 3.8 lots of flavour for the strength but a bit harsh.Only one on PG to have visited the brewery tap.Where you can find better beers but keg and card only.
