    I see on Twitter that Timothy Taylors have rebranded Ram Tam as Landlord Dark. Never see Ram Tam around London so may not make much difference down south although they say the name has held sales back so maybe a name change might see more of it around.

    They've got form for this in that Boltmaker was originally just Best. Nonsense like this has been going on for years, a great example being the renaming of Ridley's Bitter to to Ridley's PA and then Ridley's IPA, probably caused by the expansion of that lot at Bury St Edmunds.

    Nothing about this on the brewery website or their twitter feed, of course that may mean nothing as they're a bit slow with 21st century technology in Keighley.

    Tell us, now, how and when

    I cannot reply to ob's thread 'Stockport Food Rant' regarding Remedy, presumably posted in some hierarchically-protected forum area, but hardly a 'rant' ob? and, personally, I think info like that could be helpful to folk who may be intending to visit for lunch...

    We'll have to agree to disagree then, I think it's without merit but it hardly matters in the grand scheme of things and there are more pointless reviews.

    The "report a review" section doesn't allow replies to anyone.

    I assume it is my review that is being referred to. Hardly a rant and certainly not intended as one. As stated in the review it's just to warn anybody who may be planning a special visit to check beforehand. I deliberately didn't leave a numerical rating so the comment won't have any bearing on the average score for the venue or affect it adversely.

    If there is a list of rules somewhere that states this kind of thing is not allowed, then I invite somebody to point me in that direction and I shall know better for next time.

    I saw Landlord Dark the other day and wondered if it was something new. I think the only time I have ever seen Ram Tam is in a Tim Taylor pub in Keighley.

    The Bricklayers Arms Putney have restarted selling the full range from Timothy Taylors so they should have it.
    Another rebrand is Breakspeare -gravity 3.4 which is just boring bitter rebadged for the yoof market.

    Although there is no announcement on their Twitter feed or web site that I could see, Timothy Taylor's have confirmed that Landlord Dark is rebadged Ram Tam in replies to a couple of tweets:

    https://twitter.com/TimothyTaylors/s...40791542652929
    https://twitter.com/TimothyTaylors/s...19325347979264

    It looks like the rename to Landlord Dark has only happened in a few pubs so appears to be some kind of trial to see if it increases sales.
