O/T but I hope Gary that you were on the last race winner at Chester today.

City Wanderer ... oh yes :smile:

Great ride by the young lad, looked destined for no better than third a furlong out.

Thursday 4 July ... Leeds (again) ...

Kirkstall Black Band Porter 5.5 %, in Slocken.
An excellent porter which pours dark brown and is packed with a multitude of flavours including dark roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, toffee and vanilla.
Slocken has a wooden floor and bare brick walls with brewery and alcohol memorabilia displayed. 3 cask ales were available. Upstairs is a music venue.

Bingley Lock Keeper 5.7%, in the Duck & Drake.
A dark brown porter with a cocoa aroma. Lightly roasted malts, cocoa, vanilla and milk chocolate combine to make this a very nice drink.
The Duck & Drake is a Victorian street corner pub with wooden floors and wall murals featuring blues & rock legends. The pub holds regular music events and generally has 15 cask ales available.

Also popped in the Leeds Brewery Tap for a pint of Midnight Bell (see previous page for review of ale and pub).

Saturday 6 July ... Warrington ...

Lymestone Stone The Crows 5.4%, in the Lower Angel.
A strong ale which pours dark brown with a red hue. Has a faint toasty aroma and chocolate, caramel and burnt toffee flavours. Very nice.

Big Bog Quagmire 6.0%, in the Looking Glass.
A traditional or old strong ale. Pours clear brown, has no discernible aroma but a sweet taste flavoured by caramel and toffee. Quite potent.

Sunday 7 July ... Doncaster ...

A few new ones ...

Hilltop Stout 4.7%, in the Queens.
Pours black with a coffee aroma. Light flavourings of chocolate, coffee and dark fruit. Pleasant enough.

Great Newsome Old Fergie 4.4%, in the Marketplace Alehouse & Deli.
This brown ale pours dark brown and has a grassy aroma. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, biscuit and toffee. Again, pleasant enough.

Jolly Boys Jolly Blonde 4.0%, in the White Swan.
Pours clear blonde, has an aroma of citrus hops. A light maltiness is complimented with caramel and citrus. The sweetness leads to a dry finish. Better than I anticipated.

In the Lower Angel yesterday ...

Blackedge Brewing Co Angry Ginger Bread Man 6.0%, a stout which pours black and has a light gingerbread aroma. Taste is roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and gingerbread. Excellent, but probably only in moderation.

Don't normally post on this thread ... my doctor may be viewing.
However, in the White Horse Inn at Bempton and supping Plum Porter by Titanic, which chimes in at 4.9%.
Gloriously fruity ...like damson jam.

Recently in the Little Plough, Doncaster ...

Rooster's Scrambler 4.0%, a watermelon pale ale. Pours slightly hazy golden with an understated melon aroma. Taste is melon, biscuit and some malt. Quite pleasant during last week's hot weather.
