As mentioned elsewhere the Brewsters Decadence at the Forest House was my best beer - by far actually. Worst beer, though it pains me to say it of a pub that's been such a staunch supporter of real ale, was the Adnams Bitter in the Albion. No awards for atmosphere as both Spoons were very quiet last night while on Saturday the Tap and Billet blamelessly were so busy/hot/noisy they more than verged on the uncomfortable.

The Square Bottle was quite nicely busy on the Friday - splendid couple of Cosmic IPA's.

As reported the Billet and Tap were heaving on the Saturday - (what's going on here - the last few Sat's have been the same). Someone told me there is a recession on? they must be mistaken surely?

Turned back from the Tap as didn't fancy the battle to the bar.

Good to see these places busy though.

Had to be the Higsons Stout at the erm...Cellar Bar on Friday night! :bg:
Agree with others about the Tap being very busy on Saturday so busy I didn't make any beer notes :geek: . From memory, there were quite a few 5% beers, think I tried a couple :drink: .

:cheers:

A strong performance from Cheser's pubs this weekend. I couldn't pick an overall winner but the stand ales for me were:- Northern Freshly Squeezed (Artichoke), Crouch Vale Yakima Pale Gold, Whim Flower Power (both the Mill), Bath Gem (Albion), Peerless Hilbre Gold (Forest House), Stonehouse Sunlander (Marlborough) and Allgates Summit (Carlton).

Been working all weekend but managed to sneak in a pint of Purple Moose: Dark side of the moose in Harkers.

Only other beer I had this weekend that wasn't one of my own was a Red Stripe in the new Carribean opposite The Cellar. Think the Moose edges it!

1. Tatton Obscure (Pied Bull)
2. CBP 1 (Pied Bull)
3. Brimstage Oyster Catcher (Harkers)

God knows how I squeezed them into my 33 hour weekend!

Beers at the cellar weren't too bad also.... :wink:

Plassey Bitter at the Cross Lanes hotel near Marchweil for me. Now brewed by Jack Hanby this was a traditional darker coloured bitter in cracking form.

My top beers for the w/e were similar but I'd rate CBP1 as my No.1 and Obscure as No.2. My No.3 has to be Merchant Navy in Harkers, but Joseph Williamson at The Cellar was a close call.

not that I did many pubs but my fave was a pre-match Red Willow Wreckless at telfords. Close runner up was the Red Willow Headless at the Pied Bull. In fact I enjoyed all my beers at the Pied Bull and it was nice to bump into Rimmer again :cheers:
