    Cons: None

    Summary: Bass is supposedly the best-known British ale in the world. I wouldn't know about that as I only live in a little part of it. However, it's hard to not come across it in pubs and off-licenses hereabouts, and when I came across it in the pub a ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Rich malty taste, very smooth, tradition in a brown bottle
    Cons: Usually none, some batches, though, get a winy taste, otherwise expensive

    Summary: I don't want to give anybody nightmares tonight, but I can tell tales of antedeluvian times. Once, not that long ago, there were no microbreweries. A centralizing tendency in the US beer industry had all but choked out most local brews and substituted ... read more

    Pros: The perfect Ale to accompany a Porterhouse
    Cons: Can get lonely without Guinness

    Summary: The famous red triangle. The oldest registered trademark in Great Britain. The classic flavor of British ale. What other beer has soothed the stresses of Generals returning from the revolutionary war, downtrodden with the frustration of their loss. Or ... read more
