Prepare to meat (and drink) thy Doom (bar)
Review of Sharps Doombar by JOHNV

Advantages: Excellent, reasonably priced beer, good on its own and with food
Disadvantages: None, if you're a beer lover

In my quest to sample and evaluate some of the best and most readily obtainable bitters on the market, for the benefit of ciao readers (it’s a dirty job, but someone’s got to do it), and as someone who lives not far from the River Tamar, I now take a sip ... Read review

Review of Fuller's London Pride by JOHNV

Advantages: Good-looking, good-tasting, widely available
Disadvantages: Unless you don't like beer, none!

The name and the history London Pride is one of the flagship beers of Fullers, one of London’s oldest breweries – if not the oldest. That’s the one, at the landmark of the vast Chiswick brewery alongside the A4 as you approach central London from ... Read review

Welcome to Ciao. This review would be better if you said more about the taste (which you say has changed), but what you do say is clear and helpful, even if not complete. by a-true-ben

Review of Cobra Extra Smooth Premium Lager Beer by bettyboo47

Advantages: smooth and satisfying
Disadvantages: not always available in pubs

No I'm not an alcoholic Firstly I must say, I am not a big beer drinker. I have come to appreciate lager in my later years, but a bitter or an ale would be a step too far for me. I remember vividly the first few days after having my children whe ... Read review

Brains Barry Island IPA - who says South Wales can't brew bitter
Review of Brains Brewery Barry Island IPA by cr01

Advantages: A nice smooth IPA
Disadvantages: None for me

Review of Morland Brewery Old Hoppy Hen by sharper_fin

Advantages: A great beer
Disadvantages: It's too close to the established Old Speckled Hen

My Name is Shaun… I'm a big fan of the Morland's wonderful beer, Old Speckled Hen. It's a classic English ale that's been slaking many people's thirsts, including mine, since 1979. Not that I was of legal drinking age at that time but I've certain ... Read review

Review of Morland Brewery Old Nutty Hen Ale by sharper_fin

Advantages: Great taste
Disadvantages: Why is it a limited edition?

Morland have been brewing beer since 1711. I've not been drinking their product for all that time but I've certainly sunk a few of their pints in my adult life, especially their masterwork, Old Speckled Hen. Even though the company is no longer independen ... Read review

Review of Carling Black Label Lager by Bryanx546

Advantages: Easy to find, Relatively cheap, Ideal for Social gatherings with Friends
Disadvantages: Not quite rich in taste

One of Burton-Upon-Trent's finest Exports! Being 22 now, I can honestly say I've had my fair share of cans of this delightful drink. It's one of the Pub's standard Friday-Saturday night Pub Crawl elements of British culture and therefore one of the main ... Read review
