    One of my rare encounters deserving of a BOTW - Downlands 1984 Stout. I hadn't heard of them before but will try and seek them out if this is anything to go by.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    They had this one at the Sheffield Tap recently - I enjoyed it...

    ...but I really like the way this one sounds, from your description. Not enough farmyard beers in South Yorkshire!

    I've often wondered about this-is it something to do with the use of sparklers?(Prepares body armour.)
    I come across farmyard funk mainly in the south,especially in beer from Goachers, Tonbridge and to an extent Larkins.Exposure to Fuggles, Goldings and Challenger hops?

    I used to ask for sparklers to be taken off, but when the bar staff are used to the swan necks, they still put the nozzle right at the bottom of the glass, and they get puzzled when no head appears! In normal southern dispense - like I see when I go to Luton, for example - the short spout pours the beer into the top of the glass, producing a loose head.

    When I think back to what Boddingtons and Tetleys were like - and to some extent Landlord, too - I remember an exciting, bitter and somehow dirty or earthy taste experience, possibly as much to do with yeast as with malt or hops. Now in my experience most northern bitters are more like Stones - especially Abbeydale brewery's beers, most of which are pale with gentle, perfumy citrus flavours. The nearest I get to your "farmyard funky" beers is when I go to the Bricklayers Arms in Luton, where they nearly always have something from Nethergate brewery; some of the Tring beers are also good for an earthy maltiness.

    Perhaps I need to treat myself to a holiday in Kent.
