    Default Beer of the Week

    OK it's a bit of an old chestnut but who's tasted a really good beer this week, you know the ones "an angel weeping on your tongue" and all that stuff.

    I had some McMullens Rocket when in Derby with Soup Dragon and was impressed, I tried it again in a local pub this weekend and it was still a mighty ale so I'm making it my "Beer of the Week".

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    Exclamation marstons owd roger .. my beer of my week ..

    i live near Cottingham in E.Yorks .. its a small village with one or two good pubs .. one being The Tiger .. omly one handpull .. Bass .. but its well worth the visit to this old drinkers type pub .. just across the road however is one of a chain of off licences called Rythym and Booze .. its a kind of Wetherspoons of beeroffs .. good deals on lots of beers wines and lagers .. this weeks special offering was Marstons Owd Roger .. a 7.6% strong ale .. 4 for 4.50 .. each a full half litre of rich winter warmer type ale .. very moorish .. so though drinking at home is not quite as sociable as the pub experience .. this addictively drinkable ale at half the pubs prices makes a more than acceptable second best .. please excuse my spelling mistakes .. cant find the spellcheck .. might be due to the Owd Roger of course ..

    I had cracking Czech bitter (MILD in Soupy's case ) in local Wetherspoon. Name of beer escapes me..

    Anyway.. it is poor man's Old Peculiar. What a cracking ale! Tastes exactly the same as Old Peculiar and I cant tell the difference. I loved so much that I drank 5 more pints and bit tipsy at the end .

    Old Peculiar used to be my favorite beer back in the 80s , can`t stand it now .
    Also used to love Bankss Bitter and Marstons Pedigree , can`t` face either now , must be an age thing .

    I love this time of year because I like mine dark, mysterious and strong. As for the beers...

    I must admit to only drinking in one pub in the town, because I like to try new beers all the time. Stumbled across Old Thumper this weekend, seems to be living up to it's name with me! Also Brecon's Night Beacon (well balanced stout - neither too bitter or chocolate) and as I type Red Dragon, which is available all year round but is a rich ruby beer suited to me on winter nights.

    Cheers

    The breweries must tinker with the recipes from time to time, I know my local brewey, Otley, does this. I haven't been out to the pub this week, so my beer of the week is Asda Whitechapel Porter... brewed by Shepherd Neame, and just 1 a bottle.

    Well my beer of the week as the only beer I have drunk is Bombardier, sadly they had run out of Doombar when I went down the Grapes for the after work pint on Friday.

    Hi to Micky1234 and welcome to the Pubs Galore forums, I am one of the pair responsible for the running of the PG site & forum, so feel free to tell me how we can improve either site.

    For spell checking if you can see an icon in the top right of the editor that looks like then that will give you instructions on how to get a spellchecker working. I am not impressed though, so will have a look and see if we can improve on that a little later today.
