    I tend to agree, though to be fair the one pint I had in the Myrtle Tree last year was the only one in at least ten years or probably more, as far as I was concerned it could have been one of a number of similar style beers from any national brewer.

    It is famous for Bass and I am not sure that I would use the word quality.Beer emporium yes.Am often stumped as to what beer to drink as a they have a lot of iffy breweries imo and how long have they been on the bar.

    Default Nespresso...but for beer.

    From The Times, Thursday 09.01.20:


    'Next month a gadget is being launched that promises beer fans freshly brewed ale on tap at home. Part home-brewing kit, part Nespresso machine, the Pinter is about the size of a home printer. Various craft brewers are producing beer ‘’syrups’’ for it that can be delivered through your letterbox. You slot a cartridge into the machine, add yeast and water and 72 hours later ten pints of fresh IPA, lager, stout or cider can be poured. A starter kit for £70 includes two of these and a Pinter. The beer works out at about £1 a pint.'

    I'm curious to try the results, but not that curious to pay £70!

    May well give it a go - the first 20 pints will cost £3.50 each..not outrageous considering it's £4.80 in the pub on the next corner from me.

    Dig down and it says "Leave for the required amount of time (72hours-5 days depending on your drink)" - I suspect the ciders will be quicker than the beers.

    The Pinter, eh? A 72-hour wait - now that's what I call a Pinteresque pause!

    It's basically a malt and hop extract brew but with temperature control built in. I'd be amazed if it tastes as good as the real thing and I suspect the type of tap water will be a factor.
