So it has been a while since i have enjoyed beer at home. I am quite fond of the UK beers as I am not big on hops. I love Stouts, Cream stouts, Scottish ales and English ales. A few I want to try if I can find them that I have as of yet are the following. Belhaven Scottish Stout. I love their ale but not tried the stout.
Mackeson Triple XXX Stout
Beemish Stout
Samuel Smiths chocolate
I would like to try some English bitters

Some that I quite enjoy but have not had in a while.
Murphys Stout my favorite dry Irish Stout
Bellhaven Scottish Ale
Wexford Irish cream ale
Youngs Double Chocolate stout
Boddingtons
Belhaven St Andrews


I am open to suggestions for others to try if I can find them. I am quite fond of the Nirto cans over the bottles.

IPA fiend here. Have you any craft brewers around that area? I've always found them to be...useful.

Mackeson Triple XXX Stout: Yes, very nice. On the "sweeter" side. It is a "milk stout" (Made with milk sugar / lactose)

Beemish Stout: Very good. Not anywhere as sweet as any of the milk stouts. Much drier taste and finish.

Samuel Smiths chocolate: Very nice indeed. Also a milk stout that is made with cocoa.

also try: Keegan Ales "Mother's Milk Stout"


English Bitters:
Fuller's ESB (Extra Strong Bitter) The "standard" IMHO
Goose Island: Honkers
Rogue Ales: "Younger's Special" or Brutal Bitter Ale
Wells: "Bombardier Bitter"

+1 on the Wells: "Bombardier Bitter"

Try Tetley's English Ale if you can get it where you live.

I am also a big fan of UK beers.

Beemish is hands down my favorite Irish stout. Dover nailed it. It has a dry finish, but I also get just a hint of smokiness on the finish which is wonderful. Whips the Guinness that we get here with a belt. Beemish is a bit difficult to find in CA though.

I love anything from Fullers. London Pride and 1845 a both fantastic.

If you like the "nitrogenized" creamy "widget agitated" draught can style ales, Old Speckled Hen is great. I wish I could find it in a standard bottle.

Some of my other all time favorites - Theakston's Old Peculiar, S. Smith's Taddy Porter, Imperial Stout & Nut Brown Ale, Fuller's Vintage, Mackeson's Stout, & Courage's Russian Imperial Stout.

Forget the milk stouts. Can't do those.

Smithwick's is my all time favorite on tap, then Murphy's Irish stout.

Like tobaccos I try to stick to just a couple but it's nearly impossible. Very Happy
