Any ale fans on ATD?

After being a lager drinker for many years I've recently got into ale.
Some recommendations would be appreciated.
Here's mine;

Adnams Ghost Ship
Adnams Longboat
Hadley Brewing Co. Moonstone IPA
Fullers Lancer
Fullers Olivers Island
Fullers Wild River
Oakham Ales Citra
Wychwood Hobgoblin Ruby
Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold

Dartmoor brewery do some good local stuff. I normaly buy a polypin for christmas 36 pints for about £65.

Jail ale
Dartmoor Ipa.

Or some of the ale from skinners in Truro is ok.

betty stogs
Cornish Knocker

Or how about Cotleigh brewery or Exmoor ales.


My advice is when you go to a good local pub try whats on as a guest ale. The fort on mutley plain is a example of a good place for real ale..

Great thing with ale is it depends what you like and depends where you are in the UK and whether the pub looks after its beer.

Bass served direct from the barrel in the Dolpin is always a wiiner
Timmy Taylor Landlord
Exmoor Brewery Gold
Snozzle Brewery Best Bitter/Trelawny/Proper job
Robinsons unicorn

The good thing is that as ale has become more popular a lot of breweries have been able to invest in lager brewing kit as well

Some great suggestions thanks, really into Fullers Olivers Island from Waitrose atm.

Would love to try Hobgoblin Gold on tap but never seen it.

Missed this thread. Some nice suggestions on here but agree that it really depends where you are in the country/world. One of the great things about real ale is trying out local brews.

Personally often tend to gravitate toward the ESB style between 5 and 6% with some nice malty depth...perhaps something more golden for a session ale. Have been trying some of the more hoppy ones lately but draw the line at US-style grapefruit juice beer.

Anything by Dark Star is always worth a go but I'm not sure their tentacles spread out as far as the south west yet (they are Sussex-based). Of the local brews around Plymouth I always find Jail a good tipple.

Been a while since I sampled Bass off the barrel at The Dolphin but was always tradition to start a Saturday night out there for that very reason....much to the consternation of the lager drinkers!

Been all of the above at some point or other but not always all of them at the same time.

San Miguel, Peroni...marginally better than some of the other pasteurised piss but pasteurised piss nevertheless.
