Ross,

Had them all except for the Ruddles County.


Marston's Single Malt is very nice.

Warren,

Just chilling in the fridge as we speak - going to be my first bottle a new experience - i notice the beer looks cloudy like a wheat beer?

If you get a chance, buy the Ruddles - It's a heavily hopped pommie ale with most wonderful aroma (Goldings I believe) - really nice...

Hey Warren,

I thought Stockade was the only single malt beer :lol: :ph34r: :ph34r:

Ah, you've gotta have a laugh...

Marston's Single Malt IIRC is made from Golden Promise, shouldn't be any wheat. That said could be a chill haze.

I came across a bottle of it in Spain of all places. Was a revelation after putting up with Estrella Damm for a week. Think the Spanish may have aquired their brewing prowess from Fosters or Lion Nathan. :wacko:

Main thing is to hope the UK beers are in good nick. They'e got a bit of a habit of hitting our shores a bit past their best.

Thanks for the tip Ross, I'll keep my eyes open for the Ruddles. Always willing to try a new'un. :beerbang:

Hey Gough how's the new addition to the tribe faring? :)

So it would probably better if Ross puts his Marston's SM up on ebay?? :lol: :lol:

Wouldn't hold a candle to the Stockade would it? :blink:

BTW Gough the APA is up and running. Brewday went off without a hitch.

Just came home this afternoon Warren, thanks for asking. All are doing well so far, although it has been a BIG few days... She's a good sleeper to this point so I hope that continues...

Good news about the APA. Mine is still in cc. I'll be bottling when I get a spare hour or so. Should be good.

I'd reckon Ross' beer would kill it on ebay. But does it come with a glass??? :lol:

Shawn.

For those of you who have tried the Ruddles...gotta love the bottle it comes in.
Is it just me or do you fell like you are handling a giant urine sample jar?

Cheers...

The Marstons single malt was beautiful - even my daughter who's not a beer drinker liked it.

Just tried the Badgers Golden Glory - Now there's an aroma I won't forget in a while - I thought it smelt of elder flowers, but here is Roger Protz review for anyone interested http://www.beer-pages.com/notes/brewery.php?id=badger

You're not wrong Andrew, but I reckon they'll make great yeast starter bottles - I've got 6 now for that very use... Yeast that is not urine :lol: :lol:

Hey Ross, where do you get your beers from? Looks like you have a shop with a good range....

White Shield IPA is a favourite. As is the Old Nick. I've tried the Witches Brew as well, don't remember it that clearly.
I'll be interested to hear your opinion on the Marstons. I don't think I've ever heard of the Double Drop. I like their Pedigree though.
Not heard of the others, but I'm sure that won't impact your enjoyment.

The all come from Cleveland. Was called Liquorworx superstore, 22 Shore St, but has just been taken over by another family owned company - Can't remember their new name. Fabulous range of beers British, Belguim etc... Well worth a trip.

Hogs Back, not Hops Back.

Sneck Lifter is my favorite amongst that lot.
