    I will raise you a John Willie Lees mild now that is a struggle. No matter what it's better than the cans at Knowsley Road.

    I've been going in the Gerard lately, any pub that has a consistent supply of leffe blonde is ok in my book.

    Probably the most popular of the non standard lager drinks in Belgium.

    Lovely stuff, and Grimbergen. Not a fan of that Jupiler though.

    Belgium does beer and drinking so much better than we do.

    Probably just the quality. You also have them in Budapest and in Madrid. Probably other places as well, just that I have been in those 2.

    Probably just down to the fact Belgian beer is popular and considered good. Same as you see crappy generic Irish bars everywhere.

    I only ever ever have 2 or 3 at the most. It’s a bit rich and batters me the day after if I have too much.

    I was at a Wigan (Athletic) game a few weeks ago and they had a real ale brewed for them by Bowland. It was quite nice and had sold out by half time !

    That stupid cow of a manageress who took over some time after John Harvard left ruined it, especially when she started letting a big bunch of coke-heads from The Windle (when it was being done up) effectively run the pub and drive a lot of the regulars away. So I'm told.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    She's long gone that ropey old slapper, the bloke who has it now seems a nice guy.

    I've seen Havard a few times lately, he always says hello but used to hate me as youngster (entirely justified).

    Yesterday I sampled a few scoops of the new Red Vee and I was pleasantly surprised.
    Not bad at all for keg.
    IMHO definitely an improvement on the old Saints Gold.
    Just need discounts for Camra Members !

    I wonder if they have this new one in the Cricks or anywhere like that? I'm not a big real ale fan but that Saints gold wasn't bad to my taste.

    I sampled the Red V Smooth yesterday.
    Deffo better that Saints Gold, but don't think I could drink it all night.

    Love Belgian beers, just as well really as we're there so often.
    However, Czech beers are also extremely good, worldwide reputation.
    I've found Belgian bars now in nearly every European city I've been in, plus quite a few in S E Asia. Quality is as good as drinking it in Belgium itself.
    Really can't compare them with the largely hideous plastic Irish bars you find everywhere, where Guinness is nowhere near as delicious as in Ireland

    Oh dear, I tick all the boxes there apart from the elbow patches, but I don't usually drink real ale, I also thought Saints Gold was OK and still drink it at my local, but doubt whether it will be on sale much longer if they've lost the Saints contract
