Just Like Christopher Columbus!

Advantages: Tasty, refreshing and good on a hot day.
Disadvantages: Plenty of better beers around when the weather turns colder.

Review of Adnams Explorer

Adnams Broadside (Bottled)

Advantages: Great beer from one of the best breweries
Disadvantages: Strong beer at 6.3%

Over the past 4-5 years I've gone from lager drinker and occasional real ale drinker, to real ale and occasional lager drinker. This is perfectly natural. As you age, your taste buds start to wear out, with the area at the front of your tongue going first ...

Review of Adnams Broadside Ale

THE ADNAMS FAMILY.

Advantages: Fruity, full bodied and tasty...a bit like me! LOL.
Disadvantages: Doesn't really mix with food because of the distinct taste.

I went out for lunch with my parents last week, after a shopping trip to the MacArthur Glen Retail Park. We stopped at a pub on the way home, at a place called Winsick (not too far away from Chesterfield), at the New Inn. I asked for a pint of Magnet, but ...
